They took care of you when you were young. They made sure you were fed, clothed and loved. But now, their lives are shifting as they need more help with basic necessities. Roles shift as we age and as children or caregivers it is our responsibility to make sure that the needs of our local seniors are met. 

Every senior is different. Some might need more help, while others thrive off of independence. Learning about what the various facilities around town offer can give you a better understanding of what would work best for your loved one.
