Here are some of the few options available to assist your loved ones to remain independent and empowered in their own homes.

While Roomba was not made for older adults, this machine can help them greatly. They can find it very difficult to clean with heavy vacuums or get on their hands and knees. A Roomba is a small, circular vacuum that moves itself around your home, getting into the tightest nooks and crannies.
