Housing and Care Options
Deciding where the best place for your loved one to receive care requires good information about what your options are and what level of care is needed.
Home is the best choice when
- a person is able to complete his/her own basic activities of daily living (dressing, eating, toileting, etc.).
- a person who needs assistance with activities of daily living has arranged for caregivers to help. Caregivers may include family, friends or trained professionals.
- the caregiver has enough energy and stamina to provide the required level of care.
A care facility is the best choice when
- a person lives alone and home is not a safe environment
- a person's family is having difficulty managing their loved one's needs
- no other suitable location is available
