Empty Nests: Care When Living Alone

We watch those we love grow over the years as we experience the joys, worries, traditions and milestones that come with raising a family. In what can seem like the blink of an eye, the ones we cared and provided for transition into the world by leaving home and starting their own journeys. Suddenly one life phase ends and another begins, and living in an empty nest can be quite an adjustment. Living alone doesn’t always feel lonely for everyone, but it can be made more difficult when in need of support to meet daily needs.

Care on the Road with Affordable Care at Home

Driving a vehicle is how many individuals make their way around town. Whether running errands, making it to appointments on time or venturing out to social events, getting behind the wheel is a common method of traveling to where one needs to be. For various reasons, however, driving independently can pose a safety risk. Certain injuries and conditions can inhibit one’s ability to safely navigate a vehicle, putting them and others in danger. When facing driving restrictions or an inability to drive at all, going about routines that require travel can become difficult.

       Here at Affordable Care at Home, we understand the limitations one may feel when driving independently is no longer an option.

  • Retail shops
  • Homes of friends or relatives
  • Social events
  • And more
