Growing older is definitely a fearful thought for some individuals. When asked what scares people most about getting older, some of the common answers include feeling helpless or not being able to do things for oneself. But what if there was an organization that made growing older not as stressful and gave you peace of mind when it came to running errands and caring for yourself or your home? Coral Gables@HOME is just that type of organization that in many ways is the answer to many senior citizens' prayers. Since February 2009, Coral Gables@ HOME has been providing senior citizens with an array of services including licensed and background-checked vendors for household services, volunteer drivers for running errands, free prescription delivery, and even a daily check-in call if one desires.
