Partners in Senior Care - Safety in Winter

Winter Wonderland Worries

You are proud of your Mom’s independence, but you worry every time it snows.

Partners in Senior Care can help your Mother with caring companionship. They can also help her with her everyday personal needs such as cooking, shopping, driving to appointments, laundry and personal care.

Our team of professional Care Managers can be there as your back-up for doctor appointments, crisis management or just to “check in.”

We know how difficult it is to find in-home care and caregivers for your aging loved ones.

Call us today for your FREE in-home care assessment.

Happy 4th of July from Partners in Senior Care!

Independence.  The word means different things at different times in our lives.  The first time you were allowed to cross the street on your own or bike to the park by yourself.  Your drivers license.  Your first paycheck. Your first car. The first evening alone in your first apartment.  Your first date night with your husband without kids.  The day you become an empty nester - you hope. These are all incredible milestones of freedom and independence. And we remember every one of them.
