The senior citizens of the baby boomer generation are taking a much different approach to receiving care in old age than the previous generations. Before, it was common for seniors to reside in a nursing home or assisted living facility where they could receive care and assistance. In recent years, more senior citizens have been staying at home past retirement. This choice gives seniors more freedom and control of their lives while they continue to live in a familiar and comfortable environment.
When seniors decide to stay at home, they will still likely need some level of care to live safely. Assisting Hands Home Care provides senior care services to help senior citizens in who have chosen to age in place Brookfield, WI and surrounding areas in Ozaukee, Washington and North Milwaukee Counties. We will meet with our clients in their home to evaluate their care needs. Our care plans are customized to accommodate our client’s specific needs and they are flexible to accommodate changes in care needs.
Our caregivers at Assisting Hands Home Care have each completed training and a background check prior to caring for our clients.
