Do you have clients who are no longer independent at home but are reluctant to move to a skilled facility or unable to pay for in-home care? It can be difficult to find alternatives to keep seniors safe and independent, but we are fortunate to have some local out-of-the-box options that can help.
Join us for this webinar to learn:
- How the SHARED Housing program can connect seniors with other individuals to share costs and household chores. – How placing a small ECHO Cottage on a family’s property can keep an older adult safer. – How working with a LIFE model can keep a loved one sleeping in their own bed. – How community houses can lower the cost of services & provide independence to seniors.
