Assisted Living Locators, a nationwide senior placement and referral service, offered free home care consultations in support of Family Caregivers Month in November.
Assisted Living Locators’ 140 franchise offices across the U.S. assessed needs and utilized their nationwide network of in-home care providers to address the new realities family caregivers face with their loved ones during coronavirus.
Spearheaded by the Caregiver Action Network, National Family Caregivers Month recognizes and honors family caregivers across the country. Family caregivers manage health emergencies, juggle priorities, and suffer isolation – and all that was before COVID-19. The pandemic brings even more challenges as family caregivers handle “Caregiving in Crisis,” this year’s campaign theme.
As part of the free home care consultation, a local Assisted Living Locators senior care advisor met with each family, virtually or in-person, to learn about their loved one’s needs, living conditions, and personal preferences in order to build a care plan during these unprecedented times.
“We offer a variety of care resources for family caregivers ranging from Alzheimer’s and dementia care to respite care and much more,” said Angela Olea, Assisted Living Locators, CEO RN. “Our nationwide network of home care agencies provides a full range of home health care needs, including social interaction, senior nutrition, and safety in the home, to meet the pandemic challenges and assist families with the help they need.”
