858-8526 for Erie County Senior Services
Erie County Senior Services wants you to stay safe and healthy! We know it can be tough to stay home but here's some things that can keep you busy and stimulated.
Combat Social Isolation
Home care can be essential for seniors living with chronic health conditions, acute injuries or illness, reduced mobility, and other ailments. For people in these situations, it can be hard to decide whether to age in place and risk their health or safety, or give up their independence to live in a community where assistance will be available. In this situation, obtaining the services of a home care aide or home health care aide can enable seniors to retain their independence and age in place while still having access to the assistance and care that they need. Home care can make aging in place more manageable and safe for older adults of all ability levels.
There are many home care providers for seniors and their families to choose from, as well as different types of home care. This resource is a great guide, it explains what services are available with a home care aide, the different types of home care, the cost of home care, and financial assistance options.
