We solve one of the most difficult challenges facing families today...caring for loved ones requiring in-home companion care and personal assistance.
 Understanding the Different Kinds of Senior Care Available  
Finding the proper care for an aging loved one can be a daunting task without knowing the pros, cons and costs for each option. Many adult children feel torn between handling the daily tasks of caring for their parents themselves or relying on professionals.  
In some cases, a loved one is challenged with health issues and requires assistance around the clock.  
In other cases, seniors just want to stay right at home, but can have trouble standing up to walk to the bathroom or cannot drive themselves to the grocery or to a doctor's appointment.  
The truth is that our loved ones have options.  
The U.S. population is aging and average life expectancy is increasing, and more than 80% of
older adults indicate that they would prefer to "age in place," according to the National Conference of State Legislators.  
To fulfill that wish, options for senior care now range from the 24/7 care in a designated facility that we've long been familiar with - all the way down to something as simple as a professional stopping at your loved one's home to help with things like bathing, light housekeeping or transportation.  

Wandering and Getting Lost

Six in 10 people with dementia will wander. A person with Alzheimer's may not remember his or her name or address, and can become disoriented, even in familiar places.
Wandering among people with dementia is dangerous, but there are strategies and services to help prevent it.
