Elderly Care

Elderly Care is best defined as any number of personal care and health care services available to seniors that are tailored to help meet their needs as they age. It emphasizes the social and personal requirements of senior citizens who need some assistance with daily activities and health care, but who desire to age with dignity. Elderly care services encompass the whole spectrum of senior living including at-home care, day programs, senior housing, assisted living communities, continuing care retirement communities, nursing homes and the like. Increasingly in modern societies, elderly care is now being provided by state or charitable institutions.
