No one’s first choice is to go to a facility or an institution no matter how pretty the building or the décor. For a senior to stay in their own home safely they may need just a few hours of assistance or they may need 24/7 Live-In Care. An evaluation by a SYNERGY HomeCare professional is needed to determine what is best.
