The use of these different levels is called a continuum of care.
Why is a Continuum of Care important for seniors? For one, it allows seniors to age in place, moving from one level of care to another as their needs change.
It also allows them to move from the retirement apartments, to assisted living to the skilled nursing facility and then back again as specific short-term situations dictate.
In either situation, all of this can be done on a single campus, under one roof, with a minimal amount of disruption to the resident. No need for trips across town or another part of the county when an individual’s condition changes.

Care to meet your needs
Most people benefit from a little help with things that make sense. There are jobs which ask more of a person than they are worth like cleaning the floors or bathroom. Or making the bed or washing the windows may not seem worth the exhaustion. And sometimes people wear themselves out getting ready for company.
These are times to call in House Calls. Service may be scheduled hourly, daily or as requested to meet personal needs and preferences. Whether a one time occurrence or on a regular basis, House Calls will tailor a program to meet your needs.
An initial assessment at no charge helps determine the specifics and schedule. Additionally, increases or decreases in services may be arranged as circumstances change.
House Calls has a minimum one hour charge. Shifts can range from 1 hour to 24 hour periods by advance arrangement. We also offer one time or long term services.
It makes sense to let others help.
We have added a new Transportation Service.
We realize how hard it is for many seniors to get out and remain a functional part of the community. So we have developed this program as a way for seniors to get out and get where they need to go with our escort’s assistance. This service has a 1/2 hour minimum charge plus mileage.
