Ask older people where they prefer to live and most will say their first choice is to stay in their own home. It’s where they’re comfortable, surrounded by their favorite possessions and happiest memories.
But living at home, particularly alone, can have its downsides, too. Routine chores can be a burden, getting out to shop or visit the doctor can be difficult, and simply spending too much time alone can make life less satisfying than it ought to be.
First Choice Eldercare, of St George Utah can solve those problems and make home the comfortable, enjoyable place it should be.
Our carefully chosen and expertly trained caregivers provide the help seniors may need, along with friendly companionship that brightens days. Chores get done, errands are taken care of and life runs smoothly again.
Plus, not only is life simpler, it is a lot more fun -- because our companions make it easy to enjoy good times like going to movies, plays and concerts, shopping, dining out and visiting friends.
