Senior Health - Hospices

The medical needs of the elderly are often quite different and much more involved than those of children or middle aged people. They may require intensive medical attention for more serious or chronic illnesses such as Alzheimer's disease, or they may just need assistance with everyday items. Assisted Living establishments offer seniors their own private rooms, as well as 24-hour assistance with bathing, dressing, medications, laundry, meals, and transportation. Home Health and Rehabilitation/Life Care centers offer a variety of rehabilitation and medical services for elderly, disabled, and ill persons living in their own homes. Services usually include care by registered nurses and health professionals offering medical attention and therapy. Hospices service terminally ill patients who wish to remain in their own homes. Along with nursing the patients, hospices also offer assistance to the families.
