When navigating senior care, every family will have a different approach to caring for their older loved ones. Health conditions along with the aging family member’s personal preference factor in deciding the right plan of care. Some seniors and their families may opt to age in place, receiving care from a carefully-matched professional within the comforts of their own home. Others, whether it be for additional health support, a desire to age with less responsibility or a preference to live amongst a community, will settle on independent or assisted living. Regardless, seniors and their families have a multitude of resources at their disposal, ensuring they choose the right care for their loved one’s needs.

Home Care Solutions

With current availability, locally owned Home Care Solutions specializes in compassionate in-home sitting services, including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Care as well as Aging Life Care Management™ services to help your elderly loved ones extend their independence at home. 

“Our mission is to help our clients age in place gracefully while maintaining as much independence as possible,” says Rachel Palmer, Business Development Coordinator. “Since COVID began, many families have been under additional pressure to provide care for an aging loved one. As many of them are also coping with massive changes to their own schedules and lives, we can step in and provide an extra arm of support that provides less risk of exposure than at a retirement community while allowing for continued connection with family.”

Caregivers are carefully matched to meet your loved one’s needs and personality, and their familiarity with local resources saves you time and often saves you money while their compassionate understanding of the aging process relieves you of unnecessary distress.
