As we age, our physical and mental abilities may decline. This may make it increasingly difficult to perform daily tasks and take care of oneself. Whether your loved one cannot maintain their daily routine with ease due to a chronic health condition, injury or mobility difficulties, they may be feeling like their independence and quality of life is slowly diminishing. In such a situation, you may not be certain what the best at home healthcare solution for them is. Should you take on the role of their primary caregiver, share caregiving responsibilities with other family members or hire a professional caregiver?
While you may be eager to help your aging parent, they may need more assistance and at home healthcare than you can provide. They may need help with daily activities, including meal preparation, housekeeping, and transportation, as well as support to deal with their health issues. All of this can take up too much time and leave you unable to continue working or take proper care of yourself and your family.
If you, however, live too far away from your senior loved one, you may be feeling guilty that you cannot contribute to their care as much as you would like. You may even start considering nursing homes close to your so that you could visit them as much as possible. However, changing your loved one's environment and a routine is not the best solution for them, as they may only feel more helpless if they have to change their entire life.
We believe that the best care option for seniors is to receive at home healthcare in the comfort of their home, where they have built their life and where they have so many fond memories. With Comfort Keepers, your senior loved one can continue the routine they know and love right at home, where they can get all the assistance they could possibly need to remain happy and healthy.
We also believe that at home healthcare is a family issue, so if you choose us, you can stay as involved in your parent's care as you want - with the added advantage that you can leave all the time-consuming responsibilities to us and have more time to spend with your loved one doing what you both love.
