Multiple studies have shown that aging in a home environment is good for the head and the heart, provided you have people to support and care for you. Our qualified team of consultants and volunteers work to ensure you have a loving network of support so that you can live comfortably in your own home.
Sometimes we all need a little help. Care consultation is a person centered service that connects older adults to resources that support healthy aging and independence. Navigating the aging services spectrum can be very challenging. Our Care consultants work one-on-one with you to customize actions plans and connect you with those services that support your goal of reaming active and independent.
The role of caregiver is very important but also very stressful. At Age Well Arrowhead we understand that it can be very difficult to manage the increased needs of an aging parent, spouse, relative, partner or friend. Sometimes you just need someone to talk to who understands the challenges of caregiving. Let our qualified caregiver counselors provide you the support you need to continue to care for your loved one and care for yourself. We will assist you in making decisions and solving problems related to caregiving. This includes individual or family counseling, support groups, and caregiver training and education (See more about training under the education link).
