We believe, however, that elderhood is a phase of life with new and unique opportunities for growth, contribution, and enjoyment. While we recognize that the senior years or disability circumstances present identifiable challenges, as do other phases and circumstances in our lives, we choose to look for the opportunities and help those we serve to do the same. Senior and disability issues increase the risk of isolation and depression. The social environment for seniors today poses risks of low self-esteem, diminished self-worth, and even suicide. These are challenges we are prepared to counter with our Compass Program.
At Atlantis Home Care, we recognize that there is much we can do to encourage and improve social engagement, family engagement, and self-image. We have a unique program, called The Compass Program, which focuses on helping you and your loved ones discover opportunities for contributing to family, friends, and society which had not been considered before. Our program focuses on recognizing how and where you are wanted and needed in elderhood and helps you develop in those areas. The program also opens new opportunities for growth and learning throughout the senior years and even with mental illness or physical disability.
“Home Care” means something much deeper to Atlantis Home Care than it does to most; it means the act of caring for the whole person, and not just their physical body and activities of daily living.
