Time to Consider In-Home Care?


1. A decrease in mobility. If one is finding it difficult to move around or conduct essential
daily activities, they require help. Falls can become more frequent and dangerous. Elderly home care personnel can help your loved one move about the home and outside safely to perform normal day-to-day activities.
2. Diminished grooming and hygiene.  A key indicator that an aging parent requires more
in-home help. Hiring personal care assistance will help your loved one maintain a regular grooming schedule that includes showering, dental hygiene, assistance with incontinence issues,  bowel movements, and diaper changes/ bed pads.
3. Physical atrophy or disability. This can be in the form of noticeable weight loss or trouble in performing normal daily activities like cooking. Hiring home care elderly services will enable your loved one to have proper nutrition and remain more active. 
4. Memory loss. If an aged person forgets repeatedly to take their medication or turn off appliances. Hiring an in-home care help will aid your loved one in leading a consistent and more safe everyday life, despite suffering from cognitive decline. Keeping the mind active with activities and projects of interest can help delay the progression of dementia and it's a wonderful opportunity to collect meaningful keepsakes from someone's life that is special to the family.

5. Increased Medical Needs that warrant In-Home Care. Medication management and or overseeing home physical therapy. 

6. Increased Companionship Needs. One of the significant challenges older adults face is loneliness and depression.  This can be the result of living alone, losing a loved one, or due to a change in work schedule for family members that compromises quality visits. Most elders lack social interaction opportunities, especially if they live alone.  An in-home caregiver provides companionship to your loved ones, having a positive effect on their health and life.  

7. Transportation Assistance Needs.  Some are not in a position to drive safely and getting in and out of the vehicle may be challenging.  A professional caregiver can offer safe transportation, as well as accompany your loved ones to doctor's appointments, social events, shopping, and errands. This kind of assistance can enable your loved one to stay active in a world outside their home.
