Home Care can help your aging loved ones to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle in the comfort of home. They should also help to ensure seniors’ safety by recognizing and alerting their family members to potential signs of declining health.
Home Care agency’s have also become a solution to help fill the gaps of care, while in the hospital, while in a nursing home, while under the care of a home health agency, while receiving Hospice care, and other care models. Home Care Caregivers can complete the team of professionals who are providing care for your aging loved one. The best Home Care agencies provide continuous, professional, training to their caregivers to enable them to better assist in all elder care needs. Home Care Professional Caregivers can also be an additional set of “eyes and ears” for busy in town professionals, or out of town family members. Some examples of the things that most Home Care agency’s can assist with are:
- Personal care
- Food shopping
- Meal Preparation
- Light house work
- Medication reminders
- Physical assistance and support to move safely around the home
More importantly, Home Care Agency’s Caregivers provide companionship and mental stimulation by engaging their clients in conversation and other activities. The majority of Home Care services are privately paid for by the families, or aging adults that recognize their need for help and need for an extra set of hands. During this time of year, its important to keep your aging loved ones in mind.
