When Home is a Vulnerable Place
CarePatrol is committed to helping families stay safe, whether it be at home or in an assisted living community. Since the pandemic began, families have been reaching out to us concerned about their loved ones living alone at home and struggling with dementia, mobility impairments, hearing issues and activities of daily living such as eating and incontinence.
About 47 million older adults are aging in their homes. Of these, 7 million are in frail condition and find it difficult to cope with minor medical setbacks. People dealing with chronic conditions such as heart disease and diabetes were vulnerable before the crisis; now they are at further risk of decline if unable to go out for groceries, if doctor visits are canceled, if mobility is limited and they are socially isolated.
Across the country, programs that serve the older adult population are working hard to ensure that seniors are not neglected. That includes us.
During these high-stress times, CarePatrol is here to assist older adults and their families. We have short-term solutions for respite and in-home care, and long-term options for assisted living and memory care. We understand how critical it is for older adults to be living in a safe environment where care is the top priority.
We share the mutual goal of keeping those in our care safe and healthy—both at work and at home. Please be safe and continue in diligent healthcare protocol and precautions. We will continue to serve the people we all serve. Let us know how we can additionally support you during this challenging time.
