Aging In Place Safely

Aging in Place Safely

“Aging in place” is a term gaining tremendous popularity. Why? Because, as compared to institutional care, it is far superior in maintaining the fundamental issues important to the aged: comfort, familiarity, and safety. Most will agree that comfort and familiarity are better in one’s own home, but some will claim it is not safe for an aging person to stay in their own home. They will say a nursing staff is the only way to assure safety. Not true.

Many of the safety measures found in a nursing home are also available in your own home. Walk-in bathtubs, stair climbing chairs, raised commodes with sturdy rails—all are available for non-institutional use.
But the best kept secret is this: nursing care is available outside of the institutional setting. Golden Age Companions provides trained, licensed, insured caregivers who provide every level of nursing care, based on what is needed by a particular individual.
A young business executive who has suffered two broken legs skiing the black diamond run needs as much care as an long-retired, elderly, victim of a stroke. And both will function better in their own surroundings.

Yes, aging in place safely is possible. You may require quality care to remain safe. That help is available from Golden Age Companions.
