Eileen began searching for senior care for her mother with one goal in mind: To find the best, high-quality medical care to meet her mother’s needs. Senior care presents many options, each offering something slightly different. Eileen was vaguely familiar with nursing homes and assisted living.

Independence Day is just around the corner, and for most of us, this marks the official beginning of the summer slow-down.
