A majority of senior s prefer to remain in their homes until death, whenever possible. However, family members may need help with caregiver responsibilities. Home care agencies offer live- in or hourly companion and aide services. These services may include meal preparation, assistance with dressing or bathing and housekeeping. Seniors and their family members may need a variety of private and/or public services such as meals on wheels, transport services, assessment and evaluation services and care managers to support their desire and ability to live at home.
