Petaluma, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/29/2014 -- Statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reveal the average life expectancy of Americans is currently 78.7 years, an increase of 11 percent over the last 30 years. An estimated 10,000 people reach the age of 65 each year in the United States; furthermore, those reaching the senior citizen realm are healthier and more vivacious than ever before. With this increased level of health comes a more lengthy stint between retirement and the need for convalescent care. In an effort to offer assistance those in the newly extended middle ground, the caregivers at Sequoia Senior Solutions have launched in house care for elderly in Petaluma covering a widespread range of needs.
A spokesperson for Sequoia Senior Solutions confirmed, "While seniors are enjoying better health and seeing a decreased need for assisted living facilities, many certainly do fall into the neutral area where they need a little help sometimes, but not constant supervision. This is where we come in. The services we offer help prevent our clients from being forced to move into an assisted living facility before their time."
Studies indicate senior citizens who are allowed to remain in their own homes as long as possible are typically happier and healthier than those who are denied their independence before they become unable to care for themselves. The opportunity to continue their daily routines and participate in their favorite hobbies and events leads to a tendency to remain more active. Seniors who are able to reside in their own homes with professional senior care in Santa Rosa when needed generally feel they have more control over their own lives.
According to the company's website, Petaluma senior care services include, but are not limited to, light housekeeping, assistance with bathing, grooming and routine pet care, transportation to and from appointments and errands, meal planning and preparation and medication reminders. Additionally, their highly qualified caregivers provide companionship.
Before care begins, Sequoia Senior Solutions conducts an inclusive interview with the prospective client to determine the extent of his or her needs. This free assessment covers the senior's daily routines, medical conditions and current medications, nutritional requirements, transportation and physical assistance needs. As important as the required services is finding a caregiver whose personality is compatible with that of the client. Their staff can also make recommendations for modifications to make clients' daily lives easier, such as walk-in showers, placing grab bars in opportune places, ramp installation and other measures to increase safety.
Concluded the company spokesperson, "Our services are available around the clock and range from a few hours each day to constant live-in care. Our goal is to offer as much or as little assistance as our clients need, so they can maintain the life they are accustomed to for as long as possible. It is our privilege to decrease the guilt, worry and expenses associated with care for our clients as well as their families."
