How to support the elderly
With either independent resources, their family or social services assistance an older person can move from a challenging, sometimes anxiety-fraught existence into a home where they are among friends and associates, not isolated but instead an integral, valued part of a small community.
Some of our elderly residents suffer dementia and some do not. Kindness and attentive medical care are the benchmarks of life in a Mimosa home. It is simply not possible for one person or even a family of an elderly relative to live a ‘normal’ life and care for an elderly relative as we do 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
And yet many people do try. Only to discover later how much happier and more content elderly people find themselves in a Mimosa home. We find that once the transition to living in a Mimosa home has been made it is the residents who wish they had made the move earlier. This includes those experiencing dementia. We understand how to make life good for those over 55 years and we do all we can to fulfill the needs of our residents.
If you are considering a home for yourself or for a relative or friend, please do call us to make a time for you to visit. You will be very pleasantly surprised at just how wonderful home life can be.
