Personal Care and Companionship for Seniors in Lexington, MA
Most of us wake up and start out our days using the bathroom, bathing, dressing, and grabbing a bite to eat. For many seniors, this daily routine is not so easy as they struggle to carry out some of these basic care assistance and supervision activities, known as Activities of Daily Living. When it happens to your aging family member, you no doubt want them to remain at home while enjoying the independence and dignity they deserve.
Assisting Hands® is here to lend a helping hand and help seniors continue Thriving At Home!
Activities of Daily Living (ADLs): Basic Needs
