Aging In Place
This program is designed for seniors who have been diagnosed with dementia and want to stay in their home as they age. We can help the family member or caregiver of a senior with dementia by providing the education they need.
This program will help set up the home for successful and safe aging, allowing your loved one to grow old while living life to the fullest in the place where they are the most comfortable.
How Does It Work?
The program starts with an in-home assessment. An Occupational Therapist (OT) visits the home. They meet with everyone involved, including the caregiver(s). They assess the home, and will suggest appropriate services and any modifications that are necessary.
After the assessment, the OT creates a plan, recommends home modifications, and creates an education package for all the people that are involved in the care process.
What Are The Benefits?
We all develop a deep connection with our homes and want to maintain that connection as we age. Aging at home allows one to do that in a number of ways:
- Maintain a level of independence
- Avoid a stressful move
- Maintain connection with your community
- Financial savings of staying at home
- Enjoy the comfort of your own home
- Eliminates the barriers to aging in your home
