Let’s talk about all the buzzwords you here out there in senior communities, like assisted living, independent living, home health, home care, etc.

Each of those buzzwords is a different kind of care, and it can be hard to keep them all straight!

Assisted Living

“Assisted living” means long-term senior care with continual support for daily living. Usually seniors who need assisted living care are no longer able to live independently and care for themselves.

Independent Living

“Independent living” is when your loved one is able to live independently without continual care, but might be in need of some help for day to day activities.

Home Health

“Home health” is a range of services delivered by medical professionals. This includes physical therapy, and home nursing care.

Home Care

What we do is “home care.” Home care means going into homes, wherever “home” is, and helping with activities.

We can help with anything that your loved ones need assistance with, whether that be bathing, helping them dress, helping with meals, getting a lunch ready for them, or dinner prep. We can also do any kind of house cleaning like vacuuming, dusting, keeping kitchen and bathrooms clean, etc.

We can also provide transportation. A lot of people have trouble getting to their doctors appointments, and we can take them to and from appointments. We can take them to the grocery store and make sure they have food in the house. We can take them to church.

We can also provide respites for family members who are caregivers. We can go in and relieve them for a few hours, a couple of times a week, whatever they need in order to get away and get other things done.

If you have any kind of need like that, please give us a call! We’d love to talk with you!
