We’re also aware that conditions change, and ongoing assessment enables us to alter care plans based on the growing needs of an individual.
Transportation and Non-Medical Services
Studies have shown that one of the most common causes for senior citizen isolation, depression, and malnourishment is a lack of transportation.
