DOES MY LOVED ONE NEED HOME CARE?
When people face a new disability, or declining health, early intervention is the key to creating a caregiving situation at home. Unfortunately, people and health care providers are waiting too long to establish caregivers in the home.
One of the main reasons for postponing care is the desire to keep things the way they were. People want to stick to their same habits and routines. However, they will seek help when a crisis forces the issue. Home care can help to avoid such a crisis. Home care can also prevent people from being placed into a skilled nursing facility, which can sometimes lead to diminished health and depletion of resources.
WHEN IS IT TIME TO CONSIDER HELP AT HOME?
If any of the above exists, extra help from a caregiver could be beneficial for the family. Living assistance companies like Visiting Angels can help with hygiene, medication reminders, meal preparation, light housekeeping and so much more. At home care provides personalized one-on-one attention so that if the desire is to “keep things the way they were” that can be done safely all in the comfort of HOME!
