September is Healthy Aging Month

September 25, 2023

Just Like Family Home Care can play a vital role in helping seniors with healthy aging. Some of the ways we can do so are:

  • Providing personalized home care services that meet the needs and preferences of each senior. Home care services can include assistance with daily activities, such as bathing, dressing, grooming, meal preparation, medication management, and transportation. Just Like Family Home Care can also provide companionship, socialization, and mental stimulation for seniors who may feel lonely or isolated. 
  • Offering nurse-directed care for seniors who have complex medical needs or chronic conditions. Nurse-directed care can involve skilled nursing services, such as wound care, glucose checks, injections, catheter care, and IV therapy. 
  • Supporting seniors who are receiving hospice or palliative care at home. Hospice care is a type of care that focuses on relieving pain and symptoms for people with terminal illnesses. Palliative care is a type of care that aims to improve the quality of life for people with serious illnesses, regardless of the prognosis. Just Like Family Home Care can provide hospice support services, such as personal care, emotional support, spiritual care for seniors and their families.
  • Educating seniors and their families about the resources and options available for aging in place. Aging in place is the ability to live in one’s own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably.

Just Like Family Home Care can help seniors live well in their own homes and communities.
