Seniors’ dilemma: home care or assisted living?

Are you a homeowner who’s getting on in years? Do you have less energy than you used to? If your daily chores are becoming more and more difficult, there are several options to make your life easier, including using home care services or moving to a seniors’ residence.

Home care services

Staying in your home and paying for home care services like housekeeping and food delivery can save you the hassle of sorting through your possessions and the stress of moving. However, if your loved ones are busy and don’t have the time to visit, your social life will be much more limited than if you were living in a seniors’ residence.

Do you want to stay in your home at all costs? Contact various home care companies in your area to learn about your options.

Seniors’ residence

Owning a large home just for occasional family get-togethers can put unnecessary stress on you. Downsizing and moving into a seniors’ residence makes sense. Most facilities offer meal plans and health care services, sophisticated security systems and a wide range of activities and amenities, including dancing, choir, billiards and swimming pools. Visit a few facilities in your area to see what’s available to you.
