- Does your senior need help with their daily tasks, but want to stay in their own home?
- Does your loved one need help with personal care, including toileting, bathing, grooming, or dressing?
- Could they use help preparing healthy, nutritious meals on a regular basis?
- Does your senior need help get to and from the grocery store, appointments, or social engagements?
- Do they need help monitoring or caring for a medical condition or their medication?
- Lastly, would they benefit from social or emotional support?
