Our Home Safety Evaluation can help you to create an environment where your loved one can thrive and stay safe. Reducing the risk of falls is vital to the safety of your loved one. According to the National Council on Aging, every 11 minutes an older adult is treated in the emergency room for an injury from a fall. That is a scary statistic. Our Home Safety Evaluation will help you to recognize threats in the home and help you to make the necessary adjustments to control the risk of falls. As an added support feature, we offer our Family Carewatch Program which delivers peer support and other support services for the caregiver, communication services and home care coordinator services to help you navigate the available services.

The Benefits of Staying at Home
Many seniors want to stay in the home, they do not want to move to retirement communities or assisted living facilities. Now there is research to back up the idea that aging in place can be the ideal living arrangement for older adults, with one caveat. 90% of people surveyed report that they plan on aging at home. Recent studies indicate that aging at home can be more affordable, less stressful and a more comfortable option. However, aging at home without the proper support and care is not recommended. All the research points to the idea that aging at home is a very viable plan as long as you have the right support to manage the day to day activities. Our respite companion care is a great opportunity to meet your loved one’s wish to stay at home.
