Ring at Home’s Aging in Place blog features important topics for friend and family networks who are searching for the latest information and resources for the continued care of their senior loved ones living alone and in need of supportive services.
As a senior aging in place you need to constantly assess your network. Your family, friends and neighbors are a great resource but as you age, so does your network. You need to assess their health and ability to help you when needed.
