For many of us, as we reach our “golden years,” we want to remain active and enjoy a meaningful life, the question is how. 
 
When is it time to look for long-term care solutions? We believe the time is right when it is no longer pleasurable, safe or practical for you or your loved one to remain living at home. 
 
For some people, living independently is more of a challenge than a pleasure, and there may be a sense of isolation from people and the community.

For others, living independently is difficult due to underlying medical issues. You may require assistance with everyday tasks and personal care, but your family is no longer able to fully assist you.
