Highlighting Our Senior Care Services

Highlighting Our Senior Care Services

At Placita In Home Care, we recognize that all seniors have different needs, lifestyles, and levels of ability. That’s why we don’t take a ‘one size fits all’ approach to our elder care services in Tucson, AZ. We meet with each family and work with them closely to identify their needs, goals, concerns, and vision for their family.

We can then recommend an appropriate level of in-home care services. Our in-home care services for seniors allows them to stay in the comfort of their own home, while getting varying levels of professional assistance from our friendly, knowledgeable staff.

We offer assistance with bathing, dressing, meal preparation, personal hygiene, light housework, medication management, transportation to medical appointments, and grocery shopping. Call us today or contact us online to schedule a consultation for in-home care services.

Learn More About Our Approach to In Home Care Services

We are passionate about providing a different level of in-home care services to seniors in our community. We don’t believe that aging has to be an isolating experience. We want to help seniors in our community live their healthiest, happiest lives by bridging the gap between family caregivers and assisted living facilities.

We have partnered with other organizations in the community that offer low or no-cost senior activities, including art classes, socialization, continuing education, and special interest clubs. Our caregivers assist their clients in participating in these activities.

Each member of our staff has a valid driver’s license and has undergone a comprehensive DMV record check. We are licensed and insured. Our goal is to get seniors out of the house and help them make new friends, stay social, and remain engaged in activities they love.

Review the Benefits of Senior Care at Home

Seniors & Falls – Managing the Risk at Home

As your loved one ages, they are more and more at risk of a fall inside or outside the home. Even a minor fall can have devastating consequences on your loved one’s physical, emotional, and mental health.

Injuries sustained in a fall are very hard to heal from once you reach a certain age. In-home care services can protect your loved one’s health and safety and reduce the risk of accidents, injuries, and falls. We also offer free home safety evaluations.

This evaluation can identify risky areas of your home and help you find simple, effective, and affordable solutions that will make your home safer for seniors. We walk through the inside and outside of the home, looking for common trip hazards and safety issues. We can then recommend a list of measures you can take to make your home a safer, healthier place for a senior.
