Who keeps the keys?

Beyond Driving with Dignity

The Beyond Driving with Dignity training and certification program was designed to help senior drivers and their families work through the complicated issue of age-related diminishing driving skills. Beyond Driving with Dignity helps an older driver with diminishing skills make a smooth transition from the driver's seat to the passenger seat. The program also ensures that the individual can maintain as much independence as possible.

Helping Seniors Lead Comfortable Lives

Assisted Living Community

Assisted living communities provide a safe, somewhat supervised environment for people who want assistance with meals, housekeeping, laundry, and transportation, as well as support with activities of daily living (ADLs) and medication management. Assisted living also provides opportunities for socialization, engagement, and activities.

Memory Care Community

Also called memory support, memory care communities offer many of the amenities and services provided by assisted living situations, but typically offer more supervision and a greater amount of caregiver involvement while assisting with a resident’s ADLs. Activities and care are geared toward people with varying levels of cognitive impairment.

Residential Care Homes

Sometimes called personal care homes, these facilities are typically private homes with fewer residents than in an assisted living community. Regulations vary from state to state; the common denominator is the homelike environment, and depending on licensing requirements, residential care homes often provide assisted living level care as well as memory support.

Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF)

A SNF is a medical model, which means that this is often the most appropriate choice for people requiring medical interventions or recovering from an illness or injury. In many states, assisted living and memory care communities are not licensed to address certain medical needs such as IV therapies, feeding tubes, sliding scale diabetes treatment, and wound care. When this restriction exists, families are encouraged to explore a SNF.

Independent Living

This option is ideal for active, independent seniors who may decide that help with meal preparation, housekeeping, and laundry services will make their lives more enjoyable and manageable. Many independent living communities will offer some assistance with transportation and group activities as well.

Respite Care

Respite usually refers to a temporary situation where either a family needs a break from providing care at home or is unable to care for their loved one at home for a limited amount of time. Sometimes a brief respite opportunity can help a family caregiver regroup, take time for some self-care, or just rest and rejuvenation. Policies for respite vary from community to community.

Hospice Care

Hospice is the stage of care when curative strategies have been abandoned. Someone with a chronic illness in later stages or who may be within six months of end of life is a good candidate for these services. Hospice provides support not only for the person in care, but also bolsters the entire family by helping with grief and bereavement services, spiritual support, symptom and pain management, and more. Hospice can offer relief for families during an emotionally important but difficult time.

Grandpa and Grandson

"We have been dealing with a loved one who was suffering from a very aggressive form of dementia and knew the time was upon us to start looking for a place where our loved one could be cared for around the clock. We have had the pleasure of knowing Linda for many years and when we learned that she was now working with families who needed help in finding the "right fit" we were of course very comfortable in allowing Linda to assist us in making a tough situation so much more tolerable. Linds spent time really understanding what our needs were and worked hard to find the right environment that met those needs. Whether it was the communities survey history, longevity of staff, activities, transportation, room layout or just the financial investment, Linda was so diligent in making sure we were making the best choice we could. We are convinced that Linda's involvement helped us find the best place for our loved one's care. I really don't know what we would have done if Linda hadn't been there to guide us along the way. We hole heartedly thank her and would highly recommend her services to anyone in a similar situation. She made the difficult bearable."

- P. Shaw

"I knew nothing about finding an assisted living facility for my dad before I met Linda. She was professional, knowledgeable, educational, and most importantly caring. We looked at 4 different places that all met the criteria. Together we selected the best one. Days after selection, my dad was informed he needed to move from his current skilled care facility to someplace else. Insurance said so. There are no family members within an 8 hour drive of my dad and Linda facilitated the move on her own. She even made arrangements for temporary furniture until family could return. Never in my adult life have I experienced such genuine care from a service provider. Linda is by far the best."

- MARK CHEBEN

SCA in Greenville went beyond in such ways as meeting with my Mom for comfort, arranging for other care and even moving.
