On April 24, 2015, Home to Stay provided a “Lunch and Learn” for Kennedy Hospital Stratford Division’s Acute Care for Elders Unit (ACE). The AlzBetter program was presented to Dr. Terrie Ginsberg (Medical Director of ACE), Melissa Mordecai, APN (Nurse Practitioner) and the entire ACE unit interdisciplinary team. The benefits of our program and the Quality of Life Assessment tool in particular were detailed. We all learned that the ACE Unit and Home to Stay share many goals for seniors; most importantly a safe return to home and the prevention of hospital readmissions. With the ACE Unit’s interdisciplinary approach and AlzBetter’s cutting edge technology, these goals will become a reality for the seniors who avail themselves of Kennedy’s ACE unit and our unique program.
Home to Stay Senior Care Solutions is owned and operated by the Dubler and Skole Families and was started because of experiences they had with their own Families. In one situation Mom was living alone and had a fall. It was not until this fall that the family realized they were unprepared.
When it was time for their Mom to come home, she needed companion and personal care to assist her and prevent another accident. Like most people in this situation, they were confused and did not know where to go for help. It was this life-changing experience that lead to starting a home care company that is focused on enabling those who wish to stay at home and age in place.
