Aging in Place

The Center for Disease Control defines aging in place as "the ability to live in one's own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level."

"Aging in Place" refers to living where you have lived for years, not typically in a health care environment or nursing home, using products, services, and conveniences which allow you to remain at home as your circumstances change.  In other words, continuing to live in the home of one's choice safely and independently as you get older.

SEI Healthcare is proud to be a provider of services that allows the implementation of the "aging in place" philosophy.

 

 

 

Caregiving from Afar

Long distance caregivers are typically bearing the stress of making sure loved ones are adequately cared for and feeling guilty that they can't be personally involved. And, oftentimes, even when they travel for a visit, more time must be spent in coordinating chores and acitvities than providing the companionship and emotional support the loved one craves, making both parties feel guilty.

 

SEI Healthcare has been a reliable resource for the long-distance children of seniors for over a decade.  Choose peace of mind--for yourself and your loved one--by calling us today.
