Back when your parents were younger, the notion was of a “continuum of care” that meant, when you reached a certain point, you moved into an assisted living facility. When you declined a little more, you were moved into a nursing home.
Older adults do NOT have to be relocated, or worse, institutionalized when they need assistance. They do NOT necessarily need to move from their home of 30+ years because they have undergone a procedure or suffered an injury.
Home Helpers’ mission is to empower older adults to live as independently as possible in the setting of their choice. This setting could be an independent or assisted living facility, in your home, or their own home where they have lived independently for decades. In 2014, there are few reasons why someone should be institutionalized if that is not their desire.
Contact Home Helpers and see how we can tailor a plan to make life easier for older adults in need of assistance in order to remain as independent as possible in the setting of their choice.
