Ninety percent of seniors want to stay in their own homes as they age, often referred to as “aging in place” but the majority cannot accomplish this. Senior home care typically involves services performed in a senior’s home to help them when they are struggling to perform daily tasks, chronically ill, or recovering from surgery. They need reliable caregivers and/or nurses to assist them with activities of daily living to keep them healthy and safe at home.
On Wednesday, November 11th, Mavencare organized its monthly cultural event featuring Patricia Fleischmann. Patricia, a 28 year veteran with Toronto Police Service, is the Vulnerable Persons Co-ordinator responsible for seniors’ disability and mental health issues. She is a national and international elder abuse educator for police and non-law enforcement audiences. The purpose of the event was to educate attendees about abuse in the elderly and open networking opportunities for attendees.
