What does the future of Long-Term Care look like?
When we consider long-term care, we typically think of institutional care for seniors. Thankfully, times have changed! As we shift towards the future more healthcare providers are leaning towards a home-based care delivery model. In fact, the Home Care Act of 2021 recommends getting seniors home with the services they need to keep them safe and happy. When it comes to long-term care, most of the need centers around basic ADLs such as dressing, and personal hygiene. Homecare can meet these needs, this is what we specialize in! Do you have a family member that will be transitioning back into the home soon? Give our office a call at 844-543-3546 so that we can give your loved one the smoothest transition possible!

Home therapeutic activities for individuals living with Alzheimer’s Disease
“As the Coronavirus pandemic forces many families to stay confined at home, the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA) is providing families affected by Alzheimer’s disease with information about simple therapeutic activities they can do to keep their loved one engaged and active while at home.

Fuschillo, Jr., AFA’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “There are many fun activities caregivers can do with their loved ones to help exercise their minds together, using things they already have at home.”

“It’s been quite a dramatic challenge for all of us and certainly the public health challenge of our lifetime,” said Dr. Steven Landers, president and CEO of the Visiting Nurse Association Health Group, which serves New Jersey and Ohio.
