Decisions, Decisions, Decisions

When it comes to caring for the elderly, many adult children are faced with so many decisions and are not always knowledgeable of the choices they have. A very common term used amongst healthcare providers today is aging in place. What exactly is “aging in place” and what are the choices available?

Aging in place typically means a final place of care where the patient is most comfortable, content and receiving quality care. One can age in place in any quality facility, but the bottom line is that most people prefer to age in place in their very own home. Because let’s face it “...home is where you want to be.”

Home is where they are most content, where they are in familiar surroundings, where they can continue their regular schedule and routine. Your loved one wants to spend their last days at home. However, as our elders’ health condition inevitably worsens as time goes on - what can we do? What choices do we have?” Homecare is one choice to look into as a starting point for care for the frail elderly and medically challenged.

Mastercare is available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Mastercare is a locally owned and operated company that has a proven long-term track record of serving and satisfying families.

What Mastercare provides for you and your loved ones:

* non-medical homecare services for elders to provide comfort and companionship

* medical skilled nursing services to assist with rehabilitation after injury or stroke

* registered nurses to assist with medically challenged children, infants and the medically frail

* ideas that you can use right away to make things better for you and your family

* care plans and schedules that you have agreed upon

Mastercare’s friendly, professional staff will do a thorough assessment of your family’s needs.
