Here at Grand Oaks we endeavor to be a credible resource for senior living and caregivers alike. The VNA of Florida has been providing home health care services since 1976, and in that time we have gained valuable information regarding the numerous aspects of senior care. Below is a selection of topics and resources relevant to senior living and healthcare. We understand many of these senior living services may overlap or seem repetitive. However, we believe it is important to explain each service so you or your loved one understands the terms you may encounter when searching for eldercare options.
Assisted Living – Assisted living is the best of both worlds—seniors can stay as independent as possible with extra help as needed for daily activities. Assisted living communities like Grand Oaks are a great way for seniors to stay social and active in a safe, secure environment.

Companion Living – Oftentimes seniors in need of companion care are capable of living independently in their own home, but require help with non-medical services such as light housekeeping, meal prep, and medication reminders.
