Dependent seniors

By Mayo Clinic Staff

For dependent seniors, ongoing care can often be provided at home. In fact, the right type of home care services for dependent seniors can promote independence and assure the highest possible quality of life.

If you're considering your needs as you get older, explore the breadth of services available for dependent seniors. For example, home care services can provide dependent seniors with a range of assistance — from medical care and physical therapy to nutrition counseling, housekeeping support, meal delivery and companionship services.

To help you sort through the options for dependent seniors, ask questions upfront. Find out about agency qualifications, quality of care, costs and specific services provided. The more you know, the easier it'll be to choose the best agency or care provider for your needs.
