Emeritus at Ridgewood Gardens, an Emeritus Senior Living community announced Tuesday that it has launched a free home visits program for local seniors. Named “You Don’t Have to Live with Us for Us to Help,” this program is part of Emeritus Senior Living’s Safely Somewhere program.
“We are committed to making sure that every senior in our area in need finds the combination of programs and services that serves them best, even if they do not live with us,” says DeAnna Hampton, Community Relations Director.
“At Emeritus at Ridgewood Gardens, we recognize that some of our area seniors may want to live at home as long as they can. We also know that these seniors may face a variety of challenges living at home, including going without the vital health, social and supportive services they need to maintain their quality of life at home,” says Hampton. “They may need assistance identifying all of their support service options. This is why we are pleased to offer our team of dedicated health care professionals to serve these seniors and their families as a complimentary service.”
A few of the services that Emeritus at Ridgewood Gardens will be offering to our local seniors include:
- Identifying potential challenges based upon gaps in needed assistance
- Referrals to other area providers as needed based upon needs uncovered
- Post-visit coordination with families and referral sources
- Access to Emeritus resources such as family lending library and senior safety tips
- A listening ear and enjoyable visit
If you know of a senior that could benefit from one of these home visit services, contact Emeritus at Ridgewood Gardens today at 387-4945 or 589-6428.
