Senior Services You Should Know About

Published: 6 months ago

If you are the caregiver of a senior family member or loved one, you may feel the challenges that come with caring for the elderly community. Senior Care Center understands when there are circumstances that may present difficulties in which you need additional help from others. We want to give you the resources and tools to assist you in whatever situation you are in. Here are a list of resources and organizations you may find helpful.

 

AARP

The American Association of Retired Persons is an organization that empowers those who are aging. AARP serves the aging community by providing news, information, and membership benefits for those who are part of this demographic.

 

Nursing Home Resident’s Rights

Before entering a nursing home, every resident should be notified of his or her rights. This is a list of rights that every senior and caretaker should have a copy of. Federal law specifies that every nursing home is to promote and protect these rights.

 

Long-Term Care Ombudsman

If you are in a situation where you see signs of elder abuse, contact a long-term care ombudsman immediately. Ombudsmen advocate for the rights of residents in a senior care home, and ensure that seniors receive quality service and a safe home.

 

National Center on Elder Abuse

The NCEA is also another resource for elder abuse, senior rights, and elder justice. The organization helps increase identification and reporting of elder abuse as well as intervention.
