For most seniors, home is a safe haven that means comfort and security. When your loved one isn’t interested in leaving their home anymore, they may be too embarrassed to tell you that they are just unable to. Once seniors reach a certain age and experience health related issues, they may be tired and not able to leave the house as often. And it’s very likely that they may require additional assistance with medication, dressing, bathing, cooking and errands or transportation to doctor’s appointments. While there is no shortage of assisted living facilities and nursing homes in South Florida, most seniors would prefer to stay in their home if at all possible. At Advocare, our experienced team of aging life care professionals in South Florida are here to coordinate your loved one’s transition to a certified, pre-screened caregiver. To help with a smooth transition, every Advocare client is assigned one of our patient care coordinators to help you with the entire home living care process.
