Our top priority at Agape Care is to help your loved one live as independently as possible while still being safe and secure. We can tailor a personalized solution uniquely designed to meet your family’s needs. Our familiarity with local resources saves you time, and often money. Our compassionate understanding of the aging process saves you distress.

Our experienced staff is quite accustomed to working with seniors who may be initially resistant to our services. With observant eyes and a gentle heart, we listen and make it clear that our goal is to help your loved one retain as much control and autonomy as possible.

Seniors quickly realize that we are their advocates. We are their ally, not a threat.

Adult daughters and sons realize that we can

  • offer suggestions
  • smooth transitions
  • provide an objective viewpoint
  • save time, money, and distress

Give us a call at 717-393-7308 or email us at agapelancaster@comcast.net. We’d be honored to help your family navigate the sometimes choppy waters of elder care.

An initial assessment

Over the course of 1-2 visits to your loved one’s home, we can conduct an assessment. We report back on the strengths and weaknesses of the current situation. Looking at family resources, we can recommend options based on your loved one’s preferences and budget. We can also give you a general sense of how things are likely to evolve over the next 6 months. This way you can make decisions within the context of a longer term perspective.

Periodic check-ins

Picture 004We can be your knowledgeable eyes and ears. Things can change quickly in the aging process. By checking in periodically, we can let you know whether your loved one is still able to live safely at home. As elder care professionals, we know the problems that commonly arise, and the most cost-effective solutions. Perhaps there are some mobility issues that are making life more difficult than it needs to be. There may be a simple device that could remedy the situation. Maybe your loved one is starting to have memory problems and needs help with paying the bills, or balancing the checkbook. Perhaps he or she needs a bit more oversight in terms of taking medications as directed. Through periodic check-ins, you receive peace of mind knowing the current situation remains the wisest choice.
