Older Adult Concerns

Feel empowered as you age. Bacoa will help you navigate aging every step of the way. Our team is here to offer professional, unbiased guidance to ensure you have answers and solutions to your older adult concerns.

We provide resources to make living situations safe and comfortable throughout the aging process. These resources include information, referrals, and counsel on in-home home care, emergency response systems, and housing options, such as rental retirement, assisted living, and skilled nursing facilities. Our staff members also make home visits to assess individual home care needs and assist with implementing appropriate services.
