When it comes to needing personal care for you or your loved one, you may be thinking about your options. Care centers such as nursing homes and other facilities may be one of the first places that comes to mind as many see them as the only route to having their needs met.

Unfamiliar surroundings – negative impacts on your attitude, personality and outlook on life may arise from having to leave your home
