Living Well offers specialized care for adults with chronic and debilitating conditions — like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ALS, and mental illnesses — that compromise their ability to live safely in their homes, where they want to be.
As the needs of this population grow more complex — especially when there is loss of memory or mobility — people search for meaningful and manageable solutions. And — as they understand the value of staying at home, the power of autonomy and the importance of community to longevity and health — people seek a new model for elder care. At Living Well, we are forging this new model.
