Aging in Place
Aging in place, which defines a person living in their residence of choice, is a term widely used in discussions of the independence, comfort and sense of community that is vital for the aging population. According to the National Aging in Place Council (NAIPC), over 90 percent of older adults would prefer to age in place rather than move to senior housing. And this is true particularly for the Baby Boomer generation as those Boomers get older.
However, the Council also acknowledges the challenges of aging in place, as do we at Royal Care. That’s why our experienced and compassionate caretakers are so vital: they bridge the gap between the desire and the reality of those people who wish to remain independent.
According to The MetLife Mature Market Institute®, over 40 percent of those age 65 and over are limited in activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing and eating. This also extends to limits in areas such as shopping, meal preparation and household chores.
At Royal Care, our caregivers serve a full spectrum of needs. As part of our continuum of care, we cover everything from simple companionship activities for a few hours to 24/7 live-in support and care for patients in need, including those:
- Living with chronic diseases and conditions, such as:
- Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other respiratory diseases
- Heart disease
- Multiple sclerosis
- Parkinson’s disease
- Living with memory care issues like dementia
- Requiring post-hospitalization care—such as patients recovering from surgery or illness—and rehabilitative therapy
- Living with developmental disorders like Down syndrome or other intellectual disabilities
Our skilled and qualified caregivers will help you and your loved one with everything you need to thrive in the comfort of your own home.
