There are never enough hours in the day.

We’ve all said it. Life is busy. Schedules are hectic. Many of us are simply stretched too thin.

That’s where Century Health Systems comes in. We know you want your loved one to remain in his or her home for as long as possible – including after a stay in the hospital. Home care may be the best approach to recuperation following discharge from a hospital or as a means of maintaining and supporting disabled or at-risk individuals in the comfort of their own homes.

The Natick VNA provides skilled services that include nursing; rehabilitation therapy; nutrition and diet support; social services; and home care aide for assistance with daily living activities. For additional information on skilled care in the home, please visit Natick VNA.

Once individuals have completed their course of care with the Natick VNA, they may then need supportive services to help them maintain their independence at home. Distinguished Care Options can be the key to successful care management at home if you are faced with caring for an elderly individual; trying to manage the responsibilities of family, work and an aging parent; or if you are a young parent overwhelmed with the responsibilities of a newborn. We can also help you manage the care for your loved one.

Our compassionate, caring staff can provide home health services, which assist patients with personal care and daily living activities. Our companions offer patients opportunities for socialization. We also provide caregiver support through our respite services. Please visit Distinguished Care Options to learn more.

Do you help family caregivers?

According to Caregiving in the U.S., a report published by National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP, there are an estimated 44.4 million caregivers in this country. That represents 21 percent of the adult population.

Caregivers often need support in dealing with their many responsibilities, which may include accompanying a loved one to doctors’ visits; working with lawyers and financial advisors, a full-time job; caring for their own children; and more.

Distinguished Care Options provides respite for family caregivers. Our homemaking services cover such tasks as light housekeeping, grocery shopping, and maintaining a safe environment for your loved one. Our companions keep your loved one company and can read to them, listen to music with them, go on walks with them or even watch an old movie with them.

We free you up so you can focus on other areas of your life without feeling the pressure of having to “do it all.”
