Living In Your Community
Lakeland Care wants to help you live well in your own home and remain connected to your family, friends and community. We support you by putting your needs and goals first. We know living at home is important to you, and for you.
Home can be an apartment, a house shared with friends, a house with your family, your own home, or an apartment with friends.
Living in your own home has many benefits. You can plan your own day, and decide when to do certain things such as when to wake up and when to eat meals. You can do what you want, when you want.
Lakeland Care’s goal is to help you stay in your own home.
Living in your own home means you can change your routine and surroundings to give you comfort and happiness. Remaining in your home can bring a sense of calm, comfort and connection to cherished memories. You are less likely to get sick from others when you live in your own home.
Everybody, including people with disabilities and seniors, should be able to live at home with supports and be a contributing member to the community.
Living at home keeps you connected to your community – your grocery store, pharmacy, and your church. You can maintain your friendships, and your family and friends can visit you at any time.
Living at home may become hard due to sicknesses that affect your independence, health and safety.
Options exist to support you to stay in your own home.
Help with bathing, transportation, housekeeping, and home-delivered meals are just some of the services Lakeland Care offers.
Living at home is a more cost-effective option than moving to an assisted living setting. Your care team will consider assisted living only after all options to keep you living well and safe at home have been fully explored.
Your care team is one of the most important benefits to being a Lakeland Care member. Your care team is trained to support you with the necessary resources to make your life easier and safer while still living at home. Your care team will support you, your family and friends to be involved in your life.
There really is no place like home.
Your Lakeland Care team is here to make your dream a reality. Lakeland Care is committed to making sure you are safe and cared for in your home.
