Now, more than ever, Senior Citizens are benefitting from staying at home with the help of caregivers as opposed to entering nursing homes. Our caregivers are taking extra precautions to reduce risks for our clients. Below are some suggestions from the CDC for helping keep the elderly from acquiring coronavirus.
And of course, if we can help provide caregivers to keep your parent, grandparent or loved one at home, please feel free to contact us for a complimentary consultation.
Thank you to AARP for putting together this list of questions to ask if your loved one is in a nursing home.
It was 30+ years ago when I decided to open a service designed for those who wanted to remain at home rather than spend the last part of their lives living with others facing a similar fate.
It was to this end that Christel’s Home Care Agency began helping seniors and their families in the mid 1980’s. Our mission was, and still is, to provide an alternative to institutional settings.
We remain open and ready to help during this pandemic. Give us a call. Caregivers are waiting and looking forward to helping provide a safe home environment conducive to maintaining as much independence and quality of life possible.

Recently, I posted on google that we have caregivers looking for work. When I started out over 30 years ago, my goal was strictly focused on helping seniors remain in the security and comfort of their own homes. While this mission has been a big success, I have shifted my focus somewhat over the years.
Besides helping seniors, I realized I was also helping caregivers find jobs, stay working, and support their families. So, while I continue to help our elderly community maintain the highest quality of life possible, an added benefit is finding rewarding work for those who directly provide the service.
Just a reminder that August 21st is “National Senior Citizens day”!
Please take the opportunity to help in any way you can. One idea would be to join together and share watching the eclipse that morning.
Remember to wear protective glasses!
Enjoy the day.
