Everyone who comes to Senior Helpers does so for different reasons. Families and loved ones have varied needs, which require a myriad of unique questions to be answered. Regardless of your reason for seeking senior care, we want to make sure families are as informed as possible about who we are, what we offer, and what you can expect from us. Most importantly, we want you to feel thoroughly educated on the senior care process as well as your options. This is why we offer an extensive senior care resources library featuring funding options for home care, links to helpful senior organizations, our types of long-term care, the partners we work with, and specialized resources for families. We strive to provide a comprehensive array of materials, so you can get your questions answered with no hassle.
Cost can be a major obstacle when families are deciding whether in-home senior care is right for them. We want you to have a full understanding of all your options, so our clients can remain independent at home for as long as possible. Some great options for affording senior care include long-term care insurance, taking out a reverse mortgage, and state and local programs. If your loved one is a veteran, they may qualify for Veterans Administration assistance, which can often help fund senior care.
While our in-house experts are extremely knowledgeable and can answer many of your questions we realize that certain sites offer more specialized information that families often find useful. That’s why we’ve provided a list of links to helpful senior care resources, including the official websites of AARP, Medicare, the National Council on Aging, the Alzheimer’s Foundation, and many more.
We know that many families are seeking long-term care options for their loved one so we give them a variety of options to cover their potential needs. In addition to assisting seniors in the comfort of their own homes, we also work with seniors in nursing homes, continuing care retirement communities, and assisted living facilities to help provide quality long-term, extended care regardless of location.
If you’re looking for information on senior-friendly organizations, we have a comprehensive listing of our non-profit partners. These include foundations devoted to specific conditions, like the National Parkinson Foundation and the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, as well as other organizations devoted to research and awareness, like the Michael J. Fox Foundation and Second Wind Dreams.
For families dealing with a loved one with Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s, we offer free DVDs to help shed some light on home care techniques and how to cope with the struggle. We want families in our community to have all the senior care resources they need when they need to ask the tough questions and make the difficult decisions.
