Keeping Seniors Warm this Winter.

❄️ Colder temperatures can be dangerous for seniors. Always keep indoor temperatures warm and if going outside, dress in layers and cover all exposed skin in very cold temperatures.

When venturing outside make sure you are outfitted with warm socks, gloves, a heavy coat, a hat and a scary. 🧣 A scarf does double duty–it will keep you warm but can also be used to cover your mouth and protect your lungs.

Three Essential Questions to ask your Senior Home Care Provider.

Three Essential questions to ask to ensure the company you choose has a strong set of core values:

  • CommunicationWill I be able to easily communicate with the personal care attendant and have continued access to my care manager? This is the core of River Oaks Home Care’s approach.  We believe that you should never feel there is a lack of control or communication with your personal care attendant. For this reason, you are assigned a care manager who is always available.
  • IntegrityHas a sense of trust been established? At River Oaks Home Care, we believe this is the key to a comfortable relationship and the well-being of the client. That is why we carefully screen all our personal care attendants and provide a written contract.
  • PerformanceAm I confident I will get the professional care promised and that there will be accountability and follow up? Home care is dynamic; a family’s needs can change daily. You chose home care to allow your loved one to remain independent and retain their quality of life, not to endure more paperwork and problem solving. We make a simple promise: We will be there for your family.
