Personalized Programs for Aging Parents
What are the signs that someone aging in place needs a extra help? With families dispersed geographically, even adult children living in the same town can be too far away from their elderly parents to provide the daily personal care they need. When an aging family member faces an unexpected mobility issue or medical event, problems surrounding customized personal care for their physical, social and psychological well-being can arise quickly. Simple acts, like checking the mail, remembering to take medications, performing tasks for personal hygiene, making it to doctor's appointments, and getting the nutrition they need each day, can be overwhelming. Our care partners work closely with personal care residents, as well as his or her family, to make detailed assessments of each senior's progress as well as his or her ongoing needs.
The staff is very supportive to me. The fun activities keep me very busy every day.
