Assisted Living and Companions for Elderly Care
There are many advantages of an assisted living community. The staff is available around the clock, and residents have many activities to participate in. Most nursing homes offer kitchenettes or units with kitchenettes for the elderly. Some are licensed for memory care, and some have special meals that can help with Alzheimer’s and other health conditions. The nursing home is also a good place to move if a resident’s needs change.

Companions can provide non-medical assistance with daily tasks such as taking medications and running errands. These services can be scheduled by the hour, but you should know in advance if you’d prefer 24/7 live-in care. However, if you’d prefer someone to stay in your home all the time, a companion can help you organize your mail and other important documents. A companion will also help you keep up with chores and ensure your loved one doesn’t forget important appointments.
