  • Excellent nutrition
  • Personal care
  • Transportation services
  • Nurturing, trained staff provide stimulating activities that help older adults continue to find joy and meaning in their lives

Why My Second Home?

  • Older adults do better when they are able to age in place and be active in their families and home communities.
  • Socialization, exercise, and good nutrition are the best ways to delay the natural progression of Alzheimer’s disease & other dementias.
  • A five year delay of onset would save the US $8.51 trillion.
  • 15 to 18% of older adults are estimated to suffer from depression.
