In Home Care for Seniors on the Plateau

There’s no place like home. That is why The Senior Specialists Home Care team, want to help you stay as long as possible in your home.

The ability to stay in one’s home as we age, is a preferred lifestyle choice by most all.  It’s a familiar environment we know, filled with our treasured items we love, and memories that bring us comfort.


We all desire to stay as independent as possible as we age, but if the quality of daily life begins to deteriorate, we must make the appropriate changes necessary to bring back the dignity and functionality of life.


Staying at home safely and longer can be an achievable goal with the assistance of a professional Home Care team. Let us help you  maintain the quality of life you deserve while living in your own home.

Senior Friendly Home Set Up

In order to help older ones enjoy and make the most of aging in their own home instead of a long term care setting, it needs to provide the safety and convenience necessary for their specific care needs.


We can help you not only identify what adjustments and modifications are needed in the home to ensure safe aging can occur at home, but we can also coordinate the installation and modifications for you!

This can include;

  • Installing grab bars in the bathroom around the toilet and shower

  • Getting non-skid mats and or a shower chair

  • Replacing tubs with a walk-in shower

  • Installing an ADA height toilet with a toilet base or seat riser

  • Create a clear pathway to prevent fall risks

  • Removing throw rugs and trip hazards such as cords

  • Install talking smoke & carbon monoxide detectors

  • Organize items to be within arm’s reach

  • Declutter the home

  • Setting up systems like Life Alert

*We offer a free initial assessment for all clients to help determine care needs, and personal preferences. 

 

Let us do the chores while you enjoy your loved ones.

CHANGE IS HARD

We’re not going to tell you differently, change is hard for all of us, but it is even harder the older we get and when we faced with illness or declining health. To be successful in whatever you choose whether it is Home Care, or moving to a Long-Term Care setting, this requires both commitment and openness to change by family members and the senior themselves.

Trying not to take oneself too seriously, remaining flexible and maintaining a good sense of humor can be key to helping all through tough transitions that we will all be faced with one day!
