Living at Home
Aging Partners works to ensure your safety, choices and peace of mind in the place you call home. We respect your dignity and privacy and promote independent living.
Staying in Your Home
Do you want to stay in your current home, but are experiencing difficulty? Counselors are available to visit and complete an assessment of your situation. You will be offered options based on your individual needs. This information is strictly confidential and will help you and your family make informed decisions. Examples of services which may help you remain in your home include:
- Tasks of daily living
- Home-delivered meals
- Adult day services
- Transportation options
- Minor home repairs
- Assistive living devices
- Emergency response system
If a medical condition makes it a risk to remain in your home, it may be comforting to obtain a Lifeline® emergency response system. Lifeline® is a device worn either like a watch or a necklace. At the first sign of a medical emergency, you can summon help with the push of a button. AutoAlert also is available to call for help if you have fallen and are unable to press your button.
Staff also can help you with payment options.
A Safe Home
Many people find home maintenance responsibilities challenging. Our Handy Home Services program offers minor carpentry, electrical, plumbing, repairs and general home maintenance tasks. We provide help with yard work such as mowing, trimming, edging, spring and fall yard cleanup, gutter cleaning, snow removal and more.
If you are no longer driving, transportation options are available. These include assistance with public transportation, rides to our centers and rural and social transportation.
When It's Time to Move
If it is no longer safe for you to remain at home, but you aren't sure where to turn, Aging Partners can help you analyze your options. These include independent senior living communities, licensed assisted living facilities, subsidized housing, nursing home facilities and memory care facilities. Our counselors work with you and your family to match your needs and budget with appropriate housing and care.
Moving to a new home can be a challenge at any age. When moving to a smaller home you will need to prioritize which of your belongings you need most. Aging Partners can offer options for your successful transition to a new home. And our help doesn't stop there.
If you have concerns about your new facility, we have an ombudsman who can help you solve problems. If you believe that you or a loved one are the victim of a scam, abuse or other unethical action, contact us with your concerns. We can investigate to make sure your best interests are safeguarded.
