National Senior Independence Month
As National Senior Independence Month comes to a close, we want to share with you a few resources that can help your senior loved one stay independent in their own home. Additionally, we recently talked to Eye Witness News 3 about National Senior Independence Month.
Home Care Services
For families that need help with caring for a loved one, Assisted Living Services offers comprehensive in-home care, whether it’s part-time care or live-in services.
At Assisted Living Services, we know that people often need some help maintaining their independence as they get older and wish to continue living at home. Our professional caregivers make the extra effort to provide service in a respectful and caring manner. Our primary goal is for each client to be completely satisfied with our eldercare services while simultaneously maintaining a life to the fullest.
We care for individuals and couples in a variety of settings–from private homes to retirement communities and assisted living facilities. In every scenario, we have a mission to bring the best in homemaker / companion, live-in services and personal care to our clients. For the caregiver of an older parent, grandparent, or loved one, we can give you peace of mind while you are at work, school, or away from home.
Assisted Living Technologies offers supplemental solutions to in-home care. Senior care technology enables remote monitoring, wander prevention, home safety, and communication. When you cannot be with your senior loved one, monitoring solutions can keep you informed should anything go awry. Remote monitoring technology also provides a social outlet for seniors. For example, Claris Companion provides video calling, Internet browsing, medication reminders and monitoring, all in one device.
Adult Family Living
Another very important option for families is the Adult Family Living/Foster Care Program from the Connecticut Home Care Program for Elders (CHCPE). The program provides the support needed to age-in-place with the assistance of a principle caregiver that lives in the home. The caregiver can be a relative of the care recipient as long as they are not a legally liable relative (i.e. spouse). Assisted Living Services is an approved provider for the Adult Family Living/Foster Care Program. The program provides a stipend to cover in-home care.
