There comes a point in everyone’s life where a difficult decision has to be made. How do you handle care during the senior years? Will you move into a traditional care home? For many elderly individuals the thought of living in a long term care facility brings a feeling of depression.
Many people want to maintain a level of independence, however, there are daily tasks that become difficult to manage and risks to health and safety.
