With a growing number of older adults living independently, it’s increasingly important to make sure that they’re safe at home.
Local home care expert, Yvonne Murphy of Beacon Eldercare, and elder law expert, Andrew Jaloza of The Estate Planning & Elder Law Group, are hosting their third FREE Zoom Seminar on Thursday, August 26th at 7PM to inform local residents about the benefits of making your home safer and more accessible. Attendees will also learn how adding accessibility features to your home may be covered by the insurance.
Seminar guests include Daniel Elliot, from Jukebox Health – an occupational therapist led company. Occupational therapists treat injured, ill, or disabled patients through the therapeutic use of everyday activities. They help these patients develop, recover, improve, as well as maintain the skills needed for daily living and working.
“Home care for the elderly means that independence can be maintained but with some help so that health and safety are not compromised. Jukebox Health provides full-service home modifications to help older adults age-in-place. Our occupational therapists-led home safety assessment identifies client’s goals and recommends simple modifications or adaptive products that increase safety, comfort, and independence,” said Daniel Elliot from Jukebox Health.
“We are excited to work with Beacon Eldercare to assist older adults in the entire New York metropolitan area and look forward to keeping older adults safe, happy, and healthy at home and in the community,” Elliot added.
Seminar Host, Yvonne Murphy believes that home care for the elderly should include a supportive environment that encourages mental activity and social interaction. “This along with physical activity are known to help prevent cognitive decline,” Murphy said.
“Safety and home care for the elderly should be balanced and will be based on each individuals unique situation. Planning ahead and speaking to a home care provider is key to helping older adults live longer in their own homes,” added Andrew Jaloza, your other host for the Zoom seminar.
