What do I do when my mom doesn’t want to go to Assisted Living Facility?

The companion services that Circle Of Life Home Care offers provide a variety of health and human services that are designed to enable your parent to do just that. We can help with light housekeeping, list making, menu planning, decorating, errands, grocery-store shopping, medication organization, and even bill paying. We can help them stay at home, where they want to and take a load off of you – and them. We assist older adults with maintaining and developing independent living skills. Then they can learn to live safely in their home and community rather than moving to a facility for care.
