Physical Benefits

Some of the common challenges we face as we age can be bathing, dressing, and even upkeep of our home. The Hickman team offers weekly housekeeping, laundry and linen services, medication management, on-site physical, speech, and occupational therapy, and more in order to keep your loved one comfortable and safe.

Care close at hand when needed and everything you need for convenient daily living is provided. With more free time comes less time to worry about caring for our home or cooking and more time to enjoy with friends and family.

Social Benefits

From everyday social interaction to connecting with the people around them. The social aspect of a personal care community can have many benefits too. A supportive care team can boost confidence, encourage community involvement, and even brighten someone’s day. This can decrease the sense of loneliness and isolation and increase independence and fun.

Mental Benefits

Our mental health is just as important as our physical health. The trust and reliability that can come when we lean on our care team, is the type of support our loved ones need to get through the day. This means we can live life at our own pace, attend activities, meetings, and meals all at our own convenience. The Hickman also offers an emergency call system that can give you the peace of mind you deserve knowing your loved one is safe and comfortable.
