Seniors may face a multitude of changes at this stage in life, including changes in memory. It's perfectly reasonable for older adults to forget an appointment or medication now and then, but when is it considered memory impairment? At CaraVita, we know that it's not easy to always monitor your loved ones, but we want to emphasize the importance of maintaining a healthy body and mind.
Choosing our CaraVita Caregiver of the Year is always such a difficult task! We have so many fantastic care partners on our staff that truly put their heart and soul into what they do. So many of our team members are deserving of this honor.

Technology is a wonderful thing. Having the ability to guide you where you're going, remind you of something you've forgotten or being able to answer any questions you could have are a few of the perks of new technology today. When applied to seniors, technology takes on a whole new application.

The holiday season is upon us! If you are caring for a loved one living with dementia, the holiday season can be both wonderful and challenging. It is a great time of the year to engage with your loved one in favorite activities and memories from holidays past, but it can also be difficult to navigate these traditions in new ways that offer the proper support for them.

Though she was not in healthcare for most of her career, Josephine Okolie has been taking care of people for most of her life. The oldest child in her family in Nigeria, Josephine grew up with three siblings. Her family was Catholic, and Josephine wanted to be a nun. As she began the early stages of the journey to becoming a nun, she began working for American Life Insurance as an executive assistant. When the time came to take her vows, Josephine decided against becoming one because it would require her leaving her job which was helping to pay the school fees for all of her siblings.

When most people think of purchasing a home, they might first resonate with the financial responsibility that comes along with that purchase. Buying a home is said to be one of the true feats of becoming a responsible adult. Most people, however, do not think about the maintenance required through the years, or how they might care for the home as seniors. Purchasing a home is rather permanent, and it is important to be cautious of all the factors that come with new ownership. Having older parents facing issues with senior home care maintenance is a significant problem for living independently. Nearly 70% of home upkeep tasks are considered challenging for seniors.
