Home Better Care in 2018

Expert care you can rely on for those you love

With the new year upon us, we still have warm feelings of the recent holidays - being together with those we love and reminicing. Reconnecting with family can bring so much joy and lasting memories, but it may also instigate some questions regarding loved ones healthcare.

Did grandma seem more confused or need extra help with daily activities? Or perhaps Uncle Charlie had lost a lot of weight and wasn't eating very much. 

Although it's understandable that talking about one's health changing might not have seemed appropriate at the time, it's important to have those difficult conversations sooner rather than later. Now that your back to a daily routine, it's important to take a closer look at our loved one's care, self-reliance and determind if additional healthcare support is needed.
