Are You and Your Loved One Ready For Elder Care Services in Seattle WA?
The main objective for most families is to help their loved ones dwell in their own home for as long as possible. No one’s preferred choice is to go to a facility or an institution, despite how appealing the building or the decorations. For a senior to stay home securely they many need a few hours of support or around the clock care. An assessment by you, their doctor and a home care professional is needed to determine what care level is best.
