No one wants to be coddled, and maintaining dignity is always important, so how do we work together for ourselves in this situation, and for those we love who are, to both live safely and maintain our self respect and autonomy? The answer can be as simple as a few step stools and reacher poles for some people, for others it may take more, but AZ Safe at Home is committed to bringing you dignified safety and support.
