  • Can’t complete daily tasks very well

Elder Care Services

Senior Life Solutions can help your loved ones improve their quality of life.

A team of health care professionals will talk with your family to create a well-rounded care plan that may include:

  • Psychiatric evaluation – Reviews how your loved one thinks, feels, acts and remembers
  • Group, family and individual therapy – Offers opportunities to talk with a licensed counselor one-on-one or with other people about ways to solve problems and feel better
  • Medication education group – Explains the right way to use certain medicines
  • Dietary consult – Shows how to choose and prepare nutritious, tasty foods
  • Occupational therapy – Teaches how to more easily complete everyday tasks, such as getting dressed, cooking and cleaning
  • Physical therapy – Teaches exercises that can make your loved one stronger, more flexible and more comfortable
  • Social work – Helps your family find ways to fulfill everyday needs, such as transportation, housing, food and getting care for people who can’t be left alone
  • Home health care – Sends caregivers into your home
  • Spiritual care – Draws on your faith background for support and comfort

Even if your loved one needs more than our program can provide, we’ll help your family find other resources and services – such as inpatient behavioral health care or skilled nursing care.
