The term retirement used to symbolize an out-of-date lifestyle that many associated with living without any purpose. In the 60’s, the image of retirement may have been grandma making sweet tea, while grandpa chews on a piece of wheat and sways in a rocking chair on the front porch. Fortunately, if you are a senior, the times have changed, and with it the old stigma around retirement. With the constant evolution of medication and technology, seniors are living longer and stronger than ever. With CaraVita, retirement is not the end of a journey but the start of a whole new adventure!
Like many CaraVita associates, Bear Mahon joined the senior living industry because of a desire to serve others. His introduction to senior living came through the therapy and rehabilitation field, and during his 20-year career in the industry, he’s gained experience in the healthcare industry in ancillary care services, acquisition and mergers, corporate development, and multi-state portfolio management.
Congratulations to Evelyn Joseph for being the May Employee of the Month at CaraVita Home Care! She is originally from Haiti and is currently attending CENSA Nursing School and is set to graduate this October! Evelyn is always there for our clients and their families. She loves to read often, walk in the park, and watch television. When asked what her favorite show was, she replied:
Do you have an older mother in home care in Atlanta, Georgia or anywhere in the United States? Your mother has probably been there for you since birth - preparing meals and playing an essential role in your life. If there is any person in the world that deserves a home cooked meal prepared for them, it is most likely your mother. Repay the favor and make mom happy by preparing these meals for her, or with her, this Mother’s Day!

Congratulations to Dan Adesinmilolu for being the April Employee of the Month at CaraVita Home Care! Dan is a hard worker and an extremely caring person. He is always going above and beyond for clients to put a smile on their face and make sure they are cared for.
The springtime brings a sense of renewal, along with sunny days, colorful plants, and aromatic breezes. This is the time to help the senior in your life get some fresh air after being cooped up indoors all winter long. It is a relief to feel the sun on your skin and smell those sweet Georgia peaches! It can be a little challenging to find activities that you and mom, or dad, can do outside together. That is why here at CaraVita Home Care we created a list of 5 fun spring activities for seniors in Home Care in Atlanta, Georgia.
CaraVita Home Care works with Amy's Place, a Memory Care Café, to help with residents who may experience memory loss. For these individuals and their loved ones, Amy's Place offers socialization and education. They provide support groups for caregivers, educational events, materials, and resources. Caring Together in Hope founded Amy's Place. Caring Together in Hope is a non-profit organization inspired by a caregiver named Carol Troxel Hammitt. Carol once stated, "This isn't easy. It could be one of the hardest things we have ever accomplished." Carol was a caregiver for four young children when she was very young herself. She practiced private duty nursing and became a registered nurse until she eventually developed Lewy Body Dementia and passed away four months after diagnosis.
