Home Care Experts: Today’s Seniors Living Longer, More Fulfilling Lives

Home Helpers Clientele Making Healthier Lifestyle Choices to Maintain Independence


Cincinnati, OH – July 1, 2013 – According to a study conducted by AARP, 90 percent of adults age 50 and older would prefer to age in place in the comfort of home.

In honor of Independence Day, Home Helpers, one of the nation’s leading home care franchises, is sharing ways in which seniors can live healthier, more active lifestyles in the comfort and safety of home. For a list of health and wellness tips, click here.

“One of the most rewarding parts of this business helping people live more fulfilling lives,” said Emma Dickison, president of Home Helpers and Direct Link. “Living well means being able to participate in the activities you enjoy, from physical exercise and mental stimulation to social interaction. Dancing, Wii bowling, crosswords and water aerobics are among some of our senior clients’ favorite activities.”

For example, Candy and Richard Wade, owners of Home Helpers of Highland Village, Texas, regularly host Senior Proms and teaches senior clientele how to hula dance.

“Regardless of the activity, it’s important that seniors remain active and socially engaged as they age,” added Dickison. “A person’s happiness and independence depend on their overall health and wellness. From making healthy lifestyle choices to keeping up with the latest technology and trends, we want to ensure seniors are maintaining independence and enjoying life to the fullest.”

As daily activities become more challenging, Home Helpers caregivers can provide a wide range of services to enable seniors to remain independent in the comfort of home longer than would otherwise be possible. From companion care to medical services and vital signs monitoring, Home Helpers and Direct Link offer a complete continuum of care services and products.
