Comfort Keepers at Home Care Services
Senior independent living in Overland Park with the help of compassionate at home care solutions
“Aging in place” is a term that refers to seniors who grow old in their own homes. One survey suggests that almost 90% of seniors prefer to live in their own place given that choice. The good residents of Overland Park in Kansas City are no different. Assisted living facilities, or ALF, do have their place. Today seniors, though, have options to receive professional at home care, if that's what they prefer.
