Eldercare Planning and Management

“Aging is not lost youth but a new stage of opportunity and strength.” – Betty Friedan

With aging and life changes, families often need to address a loved one’s changing care needs. Ideal Aging helps address current care needs and plan for the future care of loved ones dealing with illness, disability or caregiving challenges. Stress on family caregivers is reduced, while understanding a loved one’s care needs is increased. There is greater peace of mind knowing there is a trusted local resource on your side. Ideal Aging is one of THA Group’s four home health service lines. As such, its clients have extended access to personal care, home health care and hospice services.
