Senior’s Care

Unique Needs:

  • Many seniors tell us that they want to remain in their own homes as long as they can.
  • And they want to be as safe and functional as they can be in that home.
  • But as we age, we may have reduced balance, vision, hearing and cognitive awareness.
  • Our therapist will work with you to identify your unique needs and solutions.
