Pacific Care Center helps families of seniors understand and adapt to the challenges imposed by disabilities as they age.

Seniors face many risks and uncertain challenges, such as:

  • Loss of vision from macular degeneration, glaucoma, or cataracts.
  • Decreased mobility and injury from falling.
  • Risk of cardiovascular events such as stroke or heart attack.
  • Reduced cognitive ability.
  • Alcohol and prescription drug abuse.
  • Unanticipated out-of-pocket expenses for increased care, home modifications, and medication costs at a time when income is often fixed.
  • Isolation and depression because of changes in their lives that stem from their disabilities.
  • Abuse (both physical and emotional).
  • Fraud regarding any type of financial dealing.
  • Lack of appropriate healthcare.
  • Nutrition.

These challenges can be overwhelming for seniors and those who care for them to face and overcome.
