Adult Day Care

Adult Foster Care Home is New Home

An adult foster care home can be an ideal solution for an elderly family member. Mrs. R is a 93-year old woman who has lived in Beaverton, OR with her 70-year old son for several years. Her son "E" loves his mother and was a good caregiver for her, but at the same time he wanted to retire and be a snowbird part of the year. He was conflicted about what to do about his mother. She is a lovely woman who needs assistance showering and help in and out of a back brace in the morning and evening. She is also legally blind and needs help with medication administration. Her son felt uncomfortable helping his mother with her shower, so would ask his sister to come over and assist... "E" contacted us and asked what would be good senior living options for his mother. We talked about assisted living and adult foster care. Mrs. R has a pleasant personality but is not very social around a lot of people, and since she can't see well she does not participate in card games, board games, and the like. She feels more comfortable in a small setting. For this reason, we ruled out assisted living and decided to concentrate on adult foster care homes in the Beaverton area. Continue reading

Adult Foster Care Homes That Allow Pets Keeping the Dog for Comfort

Vivian was a 72 year old woman who had battled ovarian cancer for over eleven years. It finally got to the point where the treatment wouldn't help anymore so she went on hospice. Vivian lived alone in an apartment in Tigard with her dog Murphy. She spent all day watching TV in a dark apartment. Her only visitors were the Meals on Wheels delivery volunteers and her hospice team. She was lonely and her hospice team worried about who was going to help her as her disease progressed... After a second visit to one home, lunch with the provider and a chance for her to meet Murphy, Vivian decided to move in. Leaving her apartment and her independence was very hard but knowing she had somebody who would help her and that she would get to keep Murphy with her made it a little more bearable. Vivian's doing well, Murphy's enjoying having a yard to run in after living in an apartment his whole life and the proprietor of the adult foster care home is there to help Vivian when needed.
