Seniors 65 years and older are at greater risk of serious complications from the flu compared due to the weakening of immune defenses as we age. The CDC recommends that everyone 6 months of age and older get a seasonal flu vaccine each year by the end of October, if possible. Take action and get your flu shot today!

Home care services exist to provide the basic services that facilities do – light housekeeping, meal preparation and social activities – without removing the senior from the familiarity of home. It is a cost efficient alternative to an assisted living facility that preserves the aging loved one's sense of freedom and comfort.
