June 21, 2017Elderly Care
Posted by Staff at 10:58 AM
Thank you, Dr. Laura, for promoting home care. So many elderly receive care and are able to keep their independence because of it. So many do not even know the service exists!
I have been in home care for almost 20 years. It is a very satisfying career choice. Many states actually have tax programs that pay agencies, such as the one I run, to provide light housekeeping, personal care and grocery shopping for FREE.
I believe every state has this program. Seniors need safety and they need to feel wanted but they also need their independence. Everyone feels better at home. Studies show the lifespan to be longer in the persons at home than in a nursing home. Just wanted to give you props for supporting home care and helping others to realize the 'right thing' might not really be what they have in mind...
Much adoration for all you do...
