Naturally, as we get older the need to stay at home increases. However, we always encourage clients to look at your options, your budget, and some of the alternatives. Too often, decisions to leave home are suddenly made after a sudden loss or emergency. New adjustments are painful and difficult for the elderly. Having a caregiver nearby is a great way to prevent falls and many other hazards elderly face as they age.
Here at Shower Power we have observed that most elderly people prefer to stay at home for as long as possible rather than moving into a long-term care facility as they age. This may be the right choice for you if you or your loved one needs assistance with daily living activities and enjoy a close network of nearby family and friends.
