Senior Care - Older Adults

We know that as our family members age their care needs may change over time. Many seniors are able to live independently in their own homes, however, may need help with health care, or other support and services in order to maintain their independence. Senior care providers can offer a wide array of services, including help with grocery shopping and nutritious meal preparation, medication reminders, light housekeeping, and companionship. Perhaps the senior or loved one in your family needs help with bathing and dressing but can otherwise manage throughout the day. Or, they need transportation to medical appointments within their community but do not feel comfortable taking public transit. Perhaps the care they require is temporary - following a surgery or sickness, while they regain strength. Whatever their care needs may be, we have the resources available to help you find caring, trustworthy and affordable Senior Care providers in your community.

You are not alone. Connect with others who may be going through the same thing, find professional help and resources near you. The Kinjunxion community is here to help.
