Nursing homes traditionally have provided a place for seniors to live. But, two local outlets have joined the national trend in helping seniors remain in their own homes longer.
The Apostolic Christian Home of Eureka and Roanoke have come together to create Victory Home Care (VHC), a service to provide senior citizens who reside in Marshall, Tazewell or Woodford County with the needs of daily living including medication monitoring, personal and hygiene, transportation and homemaking.
“The goal is to offer quality, affordable services that will allow seniors to stay in their homes longer,” said Nate Hoffman, who is the administrator for the AC Home of Roanoke. “There is a definite trend in the senior living industry to offer multiple levels of services. We understand that seniors want to remain in their own homes, often surrounded by family and friends, and we want to be a part of providing this service to our communities.”
Each AC Home's administrators and board of directors met last fall to plan the joint venture. The state granted a home care license for the VHC just last month.
