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.
