For some seniors, that old saying rings true, and there really is “no place like home.”

That is why Thompson Health is offering a new service called Finger Lakes SAILS (Seniors Accessing In-Home Living Services), to help those who want to remain in their homes but may need some assistance in doing that safely and comfortably.

In-home safety assessments are offered by the program’s coordinator, who also consults with seniors and their family members in order to determine and prioritize their individual needs. Based on that initial consultation, Finger Lakes SAILS can provide checkbook management and bill-paying assistance as well as referrals for housekeepers, handymen, in-home aides, home barbers and beauticians, pet care assistants and other service providers who families can hire. All of the program’s service providers are screened and insured to ensure that they deliver excellent quality.

Finger Lakes SAILS also helps seniors navigate the health care system and, as their needs change, the coordinator helps guide them in making the choices that are best for them. Throughout, adult children and other family members are kept up-to-date and provided with peace of mind.
