Are you looking for a solution for long term care for your elderly loved one in Kent? MyAFH is here to help! We have several long-term care facilities in our network, with several here in Kent specializing in different types of care services.
For most senior adults, a commonly needed service of long-term care is assistance with personal, daily activities, also called "activities of daily living" or ADLs. These activities may include bathing, dressing, grooming, toileting, eating, and moving around their home or other environment—for example, getting out of bed and into a chair.
Long-term care can also include services such as meals, adult day supervision, or transportation services. If you are looking for an Adult Family Home for your loved one to provide long term care in Kent, call at MyAFH today!
Long Term Care Homes Kent
Senior adults often need long-term care when they have an ongoing, serious health condition, or if they have a disability that prohibits them from performing the physical tasks of daily care activities for themselves. The need for long-term care can come unexpectedly, such as after a major medical event like a heart attack or stroke. However, the need most often develops over time, as people get older or as an illness or disability gets worse.

Who Needs Long-Term Care?
All people are different, so it can be difficult to predict when, how much, and what type of long-term care a loved one might need. There are a few factors that can increase the likelihood that a senior adult may need long-term care, such as:
- Age. The need generally increases as people get older.
- Gender. Women are often at higher risk than men, mainly because they typically live longer.
- Marital status. Single people are more likely than married people to need care from a paid provider.
- Lifestyle. Unhealthy life habits can increase a person's risk of needing long-term care.
- Health and family history. These factors also affect risk.
