The Situation

Building community around an aging loved one

Navigating a new stage of life.

Later in life, it’s not uncommon for people to find themselves on their own. Sometimes it’s sudden, as with the loss of a partner. Or it may be gradual, as friends and family members are less able to be at their side. That brings up new questions for aging people and their families. What will give the person purpose and enjoyment in this next phase? How can family provide companionship while juggling their own full lives? What happens when a crisis comes up? 

The Prospero solution.

When a page turns in a person’s life, their story goes on. At Prospero, we’re committed to making the next chapters the best they can be. Our care teams empower older adults to stay connected to the people and activities that give their lives meaning. We’re a national company with a local approach, bringing a spectrum of relevant resources to build community around people. When it’s needed, our services expand to full-service medical care and other support to help people live at home for as long as possible.

People and their families need to know they have choices. I help them face difficult situations with understanding and peace of mind.   It is why I love this job.
