Home Care

It’s hard to notice that your parent isn’t as spry as they once were. The fact is, approximately 10,000 people each day retire at 65, so your parents are in good company, but it doesn’t make it any easier when you begin to notice. Sometimes the signs are subtle with things they can’t seem to do anymore, like climb stairs or keep up with the grandkids. Sometimes the signs are more drastic with a fall or illness they don’t quite recover from completely.

But what can or should you do, if anything? You’re already busy with your own life and probably over-scheduled as it is. You might not even be in the same city or state. You want to do what’s best for your parents, but you need a solution that works best for them AND for you.

Home Healthcare Is a Great Option

What your parent probably wants most is to stay independent and in their own home. Depending on their condition, this can be accomplished with your help and some capable and dedicated home healthcare assistants.

In addition to loving care, a home health worker can also provide:

    • Housekeeping services
    • Meal preparation
    • Medication management
    • Assistance with personal hygiene

On top of that, they also provide companionship and a link to the outside world. This can be as much of a relief for family members as any other service.

Benefits of Staying at Home

When your parents want to stay home you can rest assured there are real benefits to this option.

    • Morale – Your parents will be happier if they can stay in their home like they want to. This improved mood can provide faster recovery from illness and injury. It can also lead to a sense of independence, which can improve morale as well.
    • Familiar Surroundings – Studies have shown a correlation between a familiar setting and a reduction in wandering among dementia patients.
    • Less Expensive – Home healthcare makes cents. It can be a cheaper way to care for your parents as compared to other options.

Your loved ones might never need this kind of assistance, but if the time comes, it’s good to know your options. Home health workers are uniquely capable of giving them the care they need while still allowing them to stay in the home they love. Using home health care can also give you the peace of mind knowing they are taken care of if you can’t do it yourself.
