Communities for Elder Orphans in the Works
Here at Love 2 Live Care, we are encouraged by a number of community developments that could help elder orphans connect with those close by in the coming years. In the past, we’ve written about Tierrasanta Village of San Diego, where neighbors help neighbors cope with the challenges of daily life. Covered by KPBS and NBC, Tierrasanta Village volunteers store up hours by performing services for older neighbors. When a volunteer then needs help, they can cash in their volunteer hours and get whatever they need. Similarly, City Heights seniors have created a roving senior center where neighbors take turns hosting games and getting to know one another for eventual support. Citizens can find senior villages in San Diego are in Del Cerro, Del Mar and Scripps Ranch as well. Organizations like the Co-housing Association of the United States and Changing Aging help organize seniors and others in living situations that provide mutual support. As of February, 2016, 161 cohousing communities existed in the United States and 100 more were actively forming.
Love 2 Live Care Services Is Sensitive to the Needs of Elder Orphans
Even mutually supportive communities use outside caregiver services from time to time. Our caregivers have visited clients in Tierrasanta Village and others many times. We’re amazed at how aging is changing as seniors stay independent and healthy for years longer than they used to. With comprehensive background checks, supervision, training and annual reviews of caregivers (which includes client input), our caregivers are among the top in San Diego. We always have a backup caretaker for your loved one in the event of an emergency and/or tasks that outmatch family or neighbor care. Call us at 619-291-4663 to schedule your no-obligation in-home assessment, free of charge. If you are a concerned relative residing in another city, or even in another state, we are happy to keep you updated on your loved one’s health and happiness.
