Are you feeling older each year? Perhaps recently you realize keeping up with the laundry, the house, and especially the yard work is getting harder to do without lengthy breaks or it takes more and more time to accomplish these tasks. What once took you five or ten minutes to do is now taking an hour or two – or even more.

The question – where and how can you receive help? How can you receive support you need and still live an active and healthy life with as much independence as possible? The answer: Homeland Center. Assistance is available through in-home services or through a facility-based option, such as Personal Care.

Jennifer Murray, Director of Personal Care for Homeland noted, “Personal Care is designed to help with encouraging residents to be as independent as possible, while offering assistance with daily tasks. These tasks include helping with balance and mobility issues, medication assistance, minimizing social isolation and offering assistance with daily tasks that may have become a burden.”

In addition to providing Skilled Care, Dementia Care, Rehabilitation Services, Hospice, HomeHealth and HomeCare, Homeland Center also has a Personal Care unit consisting of 50 spacious furnished or unfurnished studio suites. Homeland offers choices. Quality choices for different needs you may require and the changes aging may bring. Personal Care may be the best option right now if you are not able to take care of yourself like you did a decade ago or begin to feel socially isolated.

What can you expect as a resident? Each suite has an emergency call system that is continually monitored by medical professionals on staff, all day, every day – 24/7. Mealtimes consist of a varied menu – including options for those with special dietary needs. Each month a new calendar is created and filled with several different activities for residents to take part in including exercise classes, pet therapy, bingo, floral arranging, restaurant and shopping trips, live music – to name a few.

There is a comradery that exists between our residents and the staff – that is what makes Homeland so special.”

Murray added, “Homeland Center’s Personal Care offers the widest range of services, ranging from those that only need minimal supervision to those with mobility issues and memory impairment. Homeland staff also ensures you are receiving the best quality of care and assistance with daily living needs.”

At Homeland Center, we know that you want to live life on your own terms and offer a broad range of choices to meet your needs. Give us a call to see if Personal Care is right for you.
