)-- AdLife HomeCare Differentiates Itself From the Competitors: Helping Seniors Stay Independent In Their Homes
It is estimated by "The Seniors Choice" that up to seven million women are unpaid caregivers to the elderly in the US. They struggle to cope with the exhaustion, loneliness, mental and physical demands, and heartbreak of watching their loved one grow weaker. "They need help desperately," said Tom Adams.
AdLife HomeCare LLC, locally owned and operated by Renee and Tom Adams, provides an affordable solution for older individuals and couples who, though may be capable of managing their own physical needs, require non-medical assistance such as: light housework, meal preparation, companionship and personal care allowing them to confidently remain at home. AdLife services clients in Oklahoma City, Edmond, Guthrie, Deer Creek, Jones, Midwest City, Nichols Hills, The Village, Norman, Moore, Bethany, Yukon and any other areas in Logan, Cleveland, Canadian and Oklahoma counties.
According to Adams, AdLife HomeCare LLC services can be arranged for as little as three hours, or as many as 24 hours, a day. Short term assistance or longer term care is available seven days a week, including holidays.
When a potential client or family member calls the company, AdLife HomeCare will arrange a meeting with the client and the family members to discuss what services are needed. “The cost of care is given on an hourly basis so hours can be decreased or increased based on changing needs,” Adams said.
“We are setting AdLife HomeCare apart from the competition in the area of Caregiver selection, testing and screening which really is the key to this business,” Adams said. AdLife HomeCare delivers one-on-one service to their clients performed by their staff of Caregivers who are thoroughly screened, tested, bonded and insured at a level above the competition. Adlife is the only Oklahoma Home Care business currently CQA Certified (Caregiver Quality Assurance Certified). Special attention is given to how they select, screen and test their caregivers so as to provide the client greater security and confidence that their family member is being well cared for.
“In our society today, elder care has replaced child care as the number one issue for the men and women in today’s work force,” Adams said. “Already people are spending more time caring for their elderly parents than they did caring for their own children. The situation will only magnify with the aging of the 'baby boomer' population. Simply put our elderly are living longer lives.”
Over one in every eight, or 12.8%, of the population is an older American. Since 1990, the percentage of Americans 65+ has tripled. In 2011, more than 8000 people will turn 65 every day. By the end of that year the senior population of America will reach almost 49 million. By 2025, it will grow to nearly 72 million (Dept. of US Health & Human Services).
The US Census Bureau projects that the population of age 85 and over could grow from 5.3 million in 2006 to nearly 21 million by 2050.
“Research shows that older people who remain at home live healthier, longer and happier lives than do people of similar circumstances that are forced to leave their homes to live in other environments. AdLife HomeCare’s mission is to help seniors remain and live confidently in the comfort of their own homes, adding quality of life for them and their families,” said Adams.
The AdLife HomeCare team performs its collective duties with confidence, concern, commitment, cheerfulness and care.
"We treat every contact as a friend, every client as family and perform every task with honor," say Adams.
