Living And Independence
Finding The Right Mix
While doctors are known to treat conditions and symptoms, they rarely have the bandwidth to look at the total picture of health and well-being. Dignity and independence go hand in-hand. Our elders want to remain in control of their lives for as long as possible; this includes deciding where and how they want to live.
With some added creativity and your loved one’s willingness, we can recommend services and solutions inside and outside of Medicare for a safer, more enriching, engaging lifestyle based on interests and abilities.
Some questions to ask you loved ones start with the home itself:
- Do you feel your home is the safest place? What can be done to improve it?
- If you could change one thing about where you live what would it be?
- What would trigger a move to an assisted living facility?
- Do you feel you have enough stimulation with friends and family around and activities to join? How can this be improved?
- Could technology help?
Caregiving and Companionship
Most of our LifeCare plans have care attendants as the anchor of safety, comfort and contentment. Whether they’re family caregivers, agency caregivers or privately employed caregivers, they play a pivotal role in reducing the troubling and turbulent waters of aging. We have a network of proven choices to share with a range of prices to ﬁt a family’s budget. We explain what to look for and how to make the best match.
One of the biggest barriers to quality of life is transportation. Fortunately, many towns and cities, entrepreneurs are developing new ways to for older adults to access transportation every day. We can share our favorites with you, including the most affordable ways to get around and run errands.
Does your loved one like to read, garden, play cards or games like chess, or like a more active scene with yoga and Tai Chi? Senior and community centers are doing an amazing job catering to the diverse interests of elders. Need a bit more safety and support in the mix? Consider partial clinical classes. Certain centers offer cardiovascular classes and hydrotherapy that require a doctor’s consent and are staffed by RNs and therapists. We can guide you once we know more.
