Your role in the community brings you a great deal of satisfaction. Your efforts are making a difference in the world; helping others has always been your lifelong dream. You are often met with a variety of questions and challenges as you try to help your neighbors, family friends and even the elderly woman you always run into at the store complete day-to-day activities.
Your neighbors express a desire to keep living in their community, but they also talk about needing extra help. Many of them could qualify for nursing home care but are not ready to make that life-changing transition. You know there have to be better alternatives than nursing home placement and you want to be fully informed.
