More senior citizens have been choosing to age in place in their own homes in recent years to retain some independence and control in their daily lives. However, many senior citizens still need some form of care to be able to live safely and comfortably in their homes instead of leaving for an assisted living facility. It is common for seniors to need help with certain personal activities including personal hygiene, and many seniors may not have the physical ability to drive or handle certain household chores.
Home care services have developed in recent years to provide the care that senior citizens need to comfortably age in place. At Assisting Hands Home Care, we can provide home care services for senior citizens in Fort Lauderdale, FL who have chosen to age in place.
