Are you plagued with questions about what to get the parent or grandparent who has everything? How about some "outside the box" ideas to make holiday gift giving a little less stressful and more special:
Choices in Senior Care cares passionately about meeting our clients’ medical, physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs. We meet their medical and physical needs through comprehensive Care Management: coordinating medical care; attending doctor’s appointments, medical procedures and emergency room visits; providing 24/7 on-call and medication oversight; transitions to/from skilled care and home; and by providing a variety of local resources. We also provide non-medical caregiver services to our clients including: personal care, light homemaking services, medication reminders, companionship and some transportation. But, we offer so much more!
What does it mean to strive for more?... For Choices in Senior Care it starts with staying in tune with the Communities we serve, identifying needs and gaps, then striving for more by developing programs and resources to meet those needs and fill in those gaps.
In the early years of our company, we saw a need to develop a program for clients living with dementia. In an effort to better serve these clients, we researched available cognitive screenings. Looking over research related to cognitive stimulation benefits, we realized that finding a screening sensitive to Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI), often the precursor to dementia, and mild dementia would be helpful. Having such a screening tool would enable Choices in Senior Care to appropriately recommend cognitive stimulation programming to our clients at a time when it might be most beneficial in possibly slowing conversion to dementia from MCI or slowing the progression of dementia.
