As your elderly loved one gets older, they may have slowed down in terms of self-care abilities. There’s nothing surprising about this – it happens to us all. But what is surprising is the number of people who get help for their seniors without making sure it is the right kind of help. While friends, family, and neighbors are often loving and well-meaning, it doesn’t follow that they possess the expertise to deal with the specific, complicated needs of seniors.
And in a town like Los Altos Hills, which is strictly residential, the need for skilled care is even greater than in other places. With no commercial or industrial zoning anywhere in the municipality, the town lacks even a post office, telephone exchange, or library. Seniors who need to mail a letter, run errands, or visit their doctors can have a hard time when informal caregivers can’t fit such things into their schedules – or perhaps lack a car themselves. This often leaves the senior at the mercy of another person’s abilities and timetable.
But this can change with the help of the Institute on Aging (IOA).

When the years have taken their toll, and your loved one is no longer completely independent, you need professional, trained help. Not only does the IOA have skilled and educated caregivers who can provide transport, but they have the knowledge to go above and beyond for your senior.
