Is Personal Care Right for You or Your Loved One?

You or your loved one might be a good fit for personal care if you can answer "yes" to any of the following questions:

- Has there been a fall in the past six months?

- Is the older adult lonely or isolated? Do they wish they had more friends nearby?

- Is meal planning and preparation a time and energy-consuming task?

- Has there been significant weight loss or gain over the past 12 months?

- Does the adult find their medication schedule overwhelming, unrealistic, or intimidating?

- Does the person live with chronic pain or a complex medical condition?

- Does the adult worry about what might happen if they have a fall or other emergency alone at home?

- Are home care services no longer providing the person with the assistance they need? Is home care simply too expensive?


At Legend Senior Living, our personal care services are designed to enhance independence, encourage new friendships, and give residents the support they need to live life to the fullest.
