Help us improve the lives of seniors

Today, our mission is to help as many seniors and caregivers as possible through empathetic, expert guidance, and we take that very seriously.

Our in depth research and conversations with addiction experts across the nation indicate that one of the escalating health concerns in the United States is the rising incidence of substance use among older adults, notably involving alcohol and prescription drugs. Individuals aged 65 and above encounter challenges in metabolizing substances such as drugs and alcohol, amplifying the severity of addiction's effects and hastening the onset of substantial health issues compared to their younger counterparts. Thankfully, there are assisted living facilities adequately prepared to address substance use concerns in seniors.

 

In our commitment to assisting seniors and their loved ones, we have developed a guide to help navigate the process of finding assisted living options for those struggling. You can view it here: https://www.caring.com/senior-living/assisted-living/assisted-living-and-addiction/
