Program in Williamsburg to help seniors age at home
"In many cases the responsibility of caring for an aging parent goes to the oldest daughter," said Jennifer Roberts, director of the ChooseHome program. "We had someone come in recently who said that her daughter was going to help her. My question is "Is your daughter equipped to navigate the healthcare system?" Roberts said that approximately 75 percent of people age 65 and older would require some type of long term care. ChooseHome, helps people plan for and coordinate their long term care through a relationship with a Personal Services Coordinator. The coordinators work with clients to identify goals, develop strategies to achieve them, and orchestrate the services needed to support those goals. As needs change, services ramp up.
