Seniors may need help on Halloween
Last updated 10/27/2016 at Noon
Halloween is next Monday.
While seniors may love to see children in costumes on Halloween night, the constant door knocking, masked visitors and unfamiliar faces can be intimidating.
After all, one third of all seniors who live at home live alone, and most are women.
Companies like Visiting Angels, an in-home care company for seniors, offer seniors and their families a chance to hire a “Halloween helper” on Oct. 31.
If family can’t be with their senior loved one that night, these Halloween helpers make it possible for seniors to experience the fun (not the fear) of the holiday.
