It’s an undeniable fact: the vast majority of today’s older adults would rather age at home instead of facing a move to a nursing home or assisted living facility. And with reason: home care services enable elderly people to experience safety, while retaining the comfort and familiarity of home and their hometown community. When frailty or chronic conditions cause concerns to arise about a senior’s capability to remain safely at home, professional home care agencies, like All Care In-Home Care Solutions, present a viable solution.
