What Services Do Seniors Need Most

Services that seniors need most involve:

  • Health care and medication management
  • Personal care
  • Nutrition
  • Mobility and transportation

Health Care & Medication Management

Many seniors have chronic illnesses or injuries that require ongoing treatment and long-term care. Your aging family member may decide to age at home and receive home health care. This service involves medical care at home for an illness or injury.

Also, many aging persons need assistance with their medications (to ensure they take the proper medication or take medications on time).

Personal Care

Senior citizens often require assistance with bathing, grooming, dressing, feeding, etc. A family member, caregiver, or home health aide can help with these activities of daily living.

Nutrition

We all need proper nutrition to stay healthy and well. Healthy meals can be prepared weekly, so it is easier for an aging adult or their caregiver to heat them every day.

Mobility

Mobility and transportation are essential to the elderly, so they might need a caregiver to adjust their wheelchair or motorized mobility chair or take them to medical appointments, grocery store, pharmacy, etc.

Devoted Guardians'
Response to COVID-19

Devoted Guardians is actively monitoring the progression of the coronavirus, COVID-19, to ensure that we have the most accurate and latest information on the threat of the virus. As you know, this situation continues to develop rapidly as new cases are identified in our communities and our protocols will be adjusted as needed.

While most cases of COVID-19 are mild, causing only fever and cough, a very small percentage of cases become severe and may progress particularly in the elderly and people with underlying medical conditions. Because this is the primary population that Devoted Guardians serves, we understand your concerns and want to share with you how our organization is responding to the threat of COVID-19.

We are following updates and procedures from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) State Department of Health, local and county authorities, the Home Care Association of America and other agencies and resources. Our response and plans may adjust according to the recommendations from these organizations.
