It can be difficult to know when the time has come to move your senior parent into a community or seek in-home care. If you don't live near your parent(s) or you don't see them often, it can be challenging to make this decision without knowing how they live on a day-to-day basis.
CaraVita Home Care is a family-owned and operated business, and we're proud of that. Our personal, professional, and exceptional service is the reason why families trust us with their loved ones, and our team dedicates themselves to improving the lives of people in our community.
In recognition of Mother’s Day, we want to highlight some of the great mother-daughter partnerships that are present at CaraVita. We hope this gives a glimpse into the passion behind CaraVita Home Care—a passion that we want to grow and develop into the future!
The holidays always have a way of sneaking up on us, and if you are a last-minute shopper like some of us here at CaraVita Home Care, you may be frantically online shopping to get the job done before your family gathering.
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.

A significant portion of our clients are military veterans that have needs for in-home care.
Often times the holiday season can bring to light a loved one’s variety of difficult behaviors. While the holidays are a joyous time that can be meaningful and enriching for all, it can also cause anxiety or confusion for someone living with Alzheimer’s. Interruption in routine, loud noises, and stimulation during family visits can be difficult on both loved ones with memory impairments and the family caregiver.
With the holiday season upon us, and plans in place to visit mom and dad, now is a great time for families to revisit solutions that keep parents aging gracefully and in place. Because our lives are busy, we may not always connect with our parents and aging loved ones as often as we would like.
