Our mission at ElderNet is to keep seniors living at home by identifying the most cost effective approach to meet their changing needs. ElderNet will connect individual needs with benefits available to enable the elderly to have care and support their way. ElderNet’s belief is that everyone is entitled to live safely in the least restrictive environment possible.
ElderNet knows that finding quality health care, the right living situation, and handling changing circumstances are challenging tasks for seniors and their families, particularly for those separated by large distances. These challenges make contingency planning essential. While it is difficult to discuss the issues of aging, making informed decisions and having a plan in place will be worth the time taken, should an emergency arise.
In a recent quote from U.S. news and world report Scott Parkin, a vice president at the NCOA SAID:
“There are lots of programs out there to make ends meet, but it’s rare that more than half of the people who qualify actually use them.”
Recent technological advances often make aging in place easier: adaptive clothing and footwear with Velcro® fasteners, lightweight wheelchairs, and devices to control appliances and dial telephone numbers. There is even a “walk-in bathtub” for people who have difficulty climbing into an ordinary bathtub. Many services are available to help seniors living at home, just as many service programs are available to help.
We are here to help you fit the pieces together for a safe, happy living environment.
