Making “Age in Place” a Reality

Posted by:

“Some researchers now believe that relatively small changes in living spaces and daily strategies can keep them out of nursing facilities for months or even years, saving families – and, potentially, the nation – millions of dollars.”

Forbes.com has published a very informative article at about a research effort in Baltimore, MD called CAPABLE (Community Aging in Place, Advancing Better Living for Elders) that is exploring the effectiveness of providing seniors access to occupational therapists, handymen and medical clinicians to help seniors maintain independence in their own homes for as long as possible.

The resources provided in association with the research project closely mirror those provided by Remain At Home Senior Care (RAH). We take this concept further though and provide access to an even broader range of resources such as chaplains, social workers and volunteers. We can also coordinate with home health and hospice to keep you or your loved one in the comfort of home as long as possible.

We also provide a home modification service that can visit the home, assess the living situation and provide recommendations on possible changes that can be made to overcome obstacles that are causing difficulty.

If you’re looking for home care services that will truly enable the “Age in Place” approach please contacts us at (706) 254-2000 or use the form on the right to send us an email!
