IN-HOME CARE FOR SENIORS AND DISABLED FAMILY MEMBERS
Everyone enjoys a clean home, but for the elderly or disabled, even simple housekeeping tasks can become unmanageable. An untidy home can contribute to feelings of depression, isolation, and hopelessness – it can even be dangerous, increasing the risk of injury or illness. And it may also be the first sign your loved one is struggling and needs extra help at home.
K'awaika Senior Center offers homemaker’s services that help create a safe, clean, and comfortable living environment so your loved one can stay at home, living independently with a greater sense of confidence and security – and with greater peace of mind for you.
Contact us at (505) 552-9072, and let K'awaika Senior Center in-home care services help make a difference in the confidence, safety, and security of your family member as they continue to live independently, with the support they need.
