Teens Learn From Serving Seniors

This week we are pleased to welcome a guest blog from Vivette with Vibrant Home Health in Dayton, OH.

Here is her story:

Growing up as a pastor’s child I can remember the members of our church visiting senior care facilities once a week. While these visits often occurred when I was at school, during the summer months I would occasionally attend to assist with the service. As a teenager, I never dreamed I would be the one gaining a valuable experience from the visits. Rather, I thought I was doing something for the residents who were “shut-ins” and not able to attend a church service. In my mind, I was helping them.

Respite Care

Are you in need of a break, but don’t know where to turn?

If you answered “yes” then we are here to help!

At Optimized Senior Living, we offer a service called Respite Care. We like to refer to it as a “glorified bed and breakfast!”

What is respite care?

Respite care is a short stay with us where we provide 24/7 assisted living care, home cooked meals, activities, social engagement, med management, and of course a worry-free break for you, the caregiver. In America today, there are over 43 million unpaid caregivers for older adults. The average age of these caregivers is 50 years young. Caregivers that are in their prime time to enjoy life and all that it has to offer!
