At Windward Life Care, we understand older people’s desire to maintain their independence. You have your regular routines, activities, and friends, not to mention the place you call home. Why not continue aging in place, as long as you can do it safely?
In fact, most Americans want to do just that. Nearly 90% of people over age 65 want to stay in their home for as long as possible, and 80% believe their current residence is where they will always live, according to a research report from the National Conference of State Legislatures and the AARP Public Policy Institute.
For older adults to age in place, their homes and senior-focused services must be accommodating. Windward Life Care offers a continuum of care services, depending on your needs and preferences. We can continue working with you as you age and your needs change. In honor of Senior Independence Month in February, we’d like to share the ways we can help you maintain your independence.
Aging Life Care® Management
An Aging Life Care Manager, also known as a geriatric care manager, is a specialist who acts as a guide and advocate for older adults, and for families who are caring for aging parents, older relatives, or disabled adults. They are educated and experienced in a variety of fields, including gerontology, nursing, social work, and psychology. Whether you need an advocate to assist you with medical appointments; a referral to a professional like an estate planning attorney; or help setting up care for a loved one living afar, Aging Life Care Managers can take on a variety of responsibilities.

We also provide short-term consultation services.
Passport to Wellness
