Bette Davis famously said, “Old age ain’t no place for sissies!” The feeling of fading independence can be challenging for older adults. Sometimes bodies don’t cooperate the way they used to. And this is often a difficult topic for loved ones to bring up. Few families have these conversations until an emergency occurs, such as a health crisis or loss of a spouse. Acknowledging daily challenges honestly, expressing care and concern, and formulating a plan—ahead of the need, if possible—can greatly improve the quality of life for seniors, and reduce stress for loved ones.
Home health care is an important option for older adults and individuals with special needs. In-home care allows people needing assistance to stay in their home, or the setting that is most comfortable and convenient for them and their families. “My wife and I feel called to serving seniors because of the great desire for seniors to stay in their homes. We personally experienced this service for years with my wife’s mother, and we greatly desire to serve seniors as they age in their homes. Often just a few hours a day can help maintain independence.” owner Brad Rossman.

The definition of synergy is “the interaction or cooperation of two or more partners to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects.” This interaction can produce an unexpected benefit of home health care: companionship.
