Residential Care Homes or Home Care are a unique type of care. They can be difficult to locate as many do not advertise. These homes are more “care focused”. Residential Care homes are generally for residents needing more consistent hands on care. They can be stroke, cancer, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s just to name a few geriatric issues that can eventually require this higher level of care. The majority of these homes have a caregiver to resident ratio of 1-3 or better.
These are homes, much like yours or mine, that have been modified to take in seniors and most can let them age in place, finishing out their journey in an environment where the care is more intimate. This level of care in a residential setting varies in level of care and licensure from State to State. An Eldercare Advisor can help you determine if this is an appropriate care type for your loved one.

With age, some people may lose their sense of thirst. To further complicate matters, some medicines might make it even more important to have plenty of fluids. Drinking enough fluids every day is essential to good health.
Plan for some quiet-time activities: Have a favorite DVD, CD, or record on hand for example. Be prepared with some simple repetitive activity to maintain calmness: cracking nuts, folding napkins, or shelling peas
