“There’s no place like home for the holidays.” This season families are reuniting and getting to spend the quality time together that they miss out on during the rest of the hectic year. Many adults have moved away to another city or state than their parents over the years and see them less frequently than they would like to. This can make the holidays even more special.
We wish everyone a joyous and festive holiday, but we would also like share some things you should keep an eye out for while visiting your parents. If you have a few days to spare, you will probably get the chance to get in a good amount of observations regarding their health and safety.

In the event that health and personal care are a concern, MAS Home Care is more than happy to provide a capable caregiver that can meet your loved ones needs in your absence. With locations in Maine, New Hampshire and Rhode Island, New England residents are sure to find extra assistance in their area.
