Learn about eldercare options for Whatcom and Skagit County seniors

Are you overwhelmed by eldercare service options and confused about the costs of each? Are you trying to figure out how to help a loved one at home while maintaining balance in your own life?

If you can relate to either of the questions above, please register for one of our Elder Care Options: Help When You Need It workshops.


Debbie Gann, director of Home Attendant Care, will teach two ECO classes in February 2014—one at Skagit Regional Hospital in Mount Vernon and the other at Whatcom Community College in Bellingham.

Attendees will learn about a variety of services available to help seniors, whether they choose to stay in their own home or move to another setting. Medicare, Medicaid, and other funding options will also be covered.

Bring any questions you may have!  This class provides useful information for both seniors and their friends/family members.

Skagit Regional Hospital –  February 19, 5:30 pm- 8:00 pm

Whatcom Community College –  February 3, 6:00 pm – 9 pm. 

24-hour care at home – it’s a lifestyle choice

24-Hour Live In Care

When senior citizens need more help at home than can be provided by their loved ones, people often start considering assisted living facilities or nursing homes.  Those facilities can be a great choice for elders with complicated medical needs, but there is another option to consider.

24-hour care at home, provided by professional caregivers, can be an excellent choice for elders who want to continue living life on their own terms.

Personalized care delivered on a round-the-clock basis, helps seniors remain at home, in their surroundings where they are most comfortable and at ease.

There are many benefits to having 24-hour caregivers provide companionship and care to elders. They include:

  • Elderly couples are able to stay together – they can carry on with their lives as they’ve grown used to doing.
  • Family members have peace of mind knowing their loved ones are in a familiar environment, while being monitored for health and safety.
  • Seniors can enjoy living life on their own schedule – like being able to get up and go to bed when they want and eat what they want when they want it.
  • Home care can be a less expensive option when compared to assisted living facilities and nursing homes.

At Home Attendant Care we understand that each new phase in life comes with its own gifts and challenges – we believe that support from others can make transition times easier and are happy to be a trusted resource for seniors and their loved ones.
