Dorothy had it right when she said, “There’s no place like home,” and 90 percent of seniors agree, according to AARP. The vast majority of older adults prefer to age in place in their own homes as opposed to moving to a nursing home or assisted living facility. But as increased care is needed, how can senior independence be maintained at home?

While the desire to age in place at home is extremely common, it can cause many concerns for older adults who need help with daily tasks such as driving, preparing meals, bathing, walking, etc. The great news is that services from a professional Bridgeport home care agency, like those supplied by At Home Independent Living, are designed to support senior independence and improve wellbeing both inside and outside the home.

At Home Independent Living’s caregiving team provides unique senior care services that support older adults throughout the aging process and help them keep the independence they want. Our services in Bridgeport and the surrounding communities include:

Transportation and companion care: The ability to go where you want when you want is an important aspect of independence. Our caregivers can provide transportation and even accompany seniors on outings to help promote socialization. We can also provide companionship both at home and on the go to assure your loved one always has a trusted friend by her side.

Care coordination: A quality Bridgeport elderly care provider, like At Home Independent Living, can recommend assistive products and adaptive devices to build independence and coordinate the purchase of these products. Our team can also provide help with coordination of care across health care providers for the easiest and safest care transitions.

Exercise: Exercise plays a vital role in sustaining a senior’s physical and mental wellness. Our dedicated Bridgeport caregivers help encourage activities and exercise to help enhance the senior’s body, mind and spirit.

Personalized assistance: Everyone’s care needs are unique, and we can provide as much or as little care as your loved one needs or desires, whether that means a little light housekeeping, help with bathing and grooming, or a wide variety of other services. Regardless of what the needs may be, our Bridgeport caregiving team helps promote the peace of mind and senior independence for optimum health and happiness.

Maintaining senior independence is one of our top priorities as a specialized Bridgeport home care provider. Contact us today online or call us at (315) 579-4663 to learn how we can best meet your senior loved one’s needs throughout Onondaga County.
