Perera, Marisha Bandaratilaka and Rohan Fernando in answer to the lack of quality services for seniors wanting to live at home independently. Spectrum GoodLife enables senior citizens to take the first step towards enjoying a stress-free and worry-free life in the comfort of their own homes.

Spectrum GoodLife believes in treating elders with compassion, respect and empathy offering a range of solutions that empower them to live life independently and to the fullest from the comfort of their own homes. They are a professionally-managed company offering reliable, responsible solutions that empower seniors to live independently and to their fullest, from the comfort of their own homes. 

Spectrum GoodLife offers a range of tiered services depending on the level of assistance required, with each tier adding on additional services. They also offer standalone services as add-ons to their existing packages. They provide free assessments enabling clients to choose which package suits them best, so that they always have the best possible care. Services include housekeeping, grocery provision, transport, medication management, household maintenance and bill payments, all handled by a dedicated, caring, highly-trained in-house team.

Each client is assigned his or her own Client Care Manager who is trained in elder care and provides ongoing emotional support and companionship to clients through regular scheduled visits and phone calls, even engaging with clients about books, movies, current affairs, etc. They also maintain a calendar on behalf of clients, facilitating everything from routine follow-ups, pet vaccination to air-conditioner maintenance. In addition, they will update family members on the status of their elderly loved ones.

Also, if requested, they offer free assessments of elders’ living areas, and a custom retrofitting service performed by their in-house team of professionals in order to enhance safety and minimise accidents such as falls, while optimising factors such as accessibility, mobility and comfort.
