About Special Care Services' Adult Family Care Home
An Adult Family Care Home is an intimate family setting which brings calm and a sense of familiarity, especially to individuals who suffer from cognitive impairments. As a Gerontologist and Certified Dementia Practitioner I have the expert knowledge, as well as over a decade of experience working with cognitively impaired individuals and families. While I can’t cure or change the progression of Alzheimer’s Disease or other cognitive impairments, I can help ease the pain, turmoil and crisis associated with it by providing a safe, worry free environment for my clients, as well as a source of information for loved ones. As a Private Practice Gerontologist, I have helped countless families through the maze and challenges of caring for individuals with dementia, chronic health conditions and disabilities. I am available when you and/or your loved one need me. I have a very knowledgeable team who shares my vision and passion. I welcome any questions you may have about the future of my Adult Family Care Home or any of the other services I provide.
If caring for your loved at home is still a viable option, I offer assistance with all aspects of Aging in Place, such as affordable homemaker companion services.
If a private Adult Family Care Home is not an option, I can also assist with facility placement. I am here to help, please feel free to call upon me if and when the need arises.
Please contact Special Care Services for more information on our future Adult Family Care Home or with any other questions or comments you may have.
Pending licensing, we hope to admit our first residents starting in the fall of 2016.
