Encino is a neighborhood in Los Angeles, CA. Out of the city’s nearly 4 million residents, more than 481,000 are seniors aged 65 and older. According to research performed by the Los Angeles Times, more than 44,000 people live in Encino where the concentration of seniors is one of the highest in the entire county.

Whether it’s to admire the thousands of blooming Pink Cloud cherry blossom trees during the spring, play and watch sports such as golf, baseball and cricket or just to enjoy an afternoon picnic by the water, Encino’s Sepulveda Basin Recreation Area has something to attract seniors of all interests. The picturesque Pacific coastline and the heart of Hollywood with its numerous entertainment attractions are also just a short drive away.

Determining Your Loved One’s Need for In-Home Care

Aging can be a difficult process, and loved ones may not always ask for help – often times it’s up to their family to evaluate their need for help around the house. While no two situations are exactly alike, this checklist can help you and your loved ones determine when it’s time to start the search for a home care provider.


Guidelines for Talking About In-Home Care

If you’ve determined that your loved one needs the assistance of a care provider in their home, it may be time for a difficult conversation. Handled correctly, however, this process can bring a family together and ensure that everyone’s concerns are addressed. Use this PDF as a starting point to help the conversation stay as positive and productive as possible.
