The Situation

Caring for a parent living alone

Navigating a new stage of life.

As we age, it’s natural that our circumstances change. Whether it’s the loss of a partner or a worsening health condition, people aren’t always equipped to deal with the next phase of life on their own. That confronts families with difficult questions. How can the person hold onto their independence and quality of life? How can family members support them while juggling their own full lives? What happens when a new change or crisis complicates the picture?

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 people living alone to remain in a place of comfort and connection. We’re there for caregivers, helping them support their loved one’s wishes and ease burdens that tend to fall on families. With our compassionate guidance, families can rest easier, even as their loved one’s lives keep changing.

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.
