Whittier Senior Resource Guide

While home care can cover many essential needs for seniors, a complete and effective care plan incorporates resources for all of life’s needs. This includes assistance for socialization and community involvement, nutrition, exercise, legal and estate planning, housekeeping and gardening, care management, medication management, insurance, and physician and medical professionals, and many more.

It’s for this reason that we use our existing network and knowledge of local providers to curate a list of these key resources for seniors here in your city. If there is a particular need you do not find, please contact us- we would love to introduce you to a service that may help support aging safely and independently at home.
