As we shared in our last blog post, home care can be a viable option for many seniors who require some extra assistance with day-to-day living but prefer to remain at home rather than move to a nursing home. Although in-home care is preferred by seniors, it still can be a bit disconcerting at first to consider allowing a caregiver to come into their personal space.
One of the most frightening aspects of aging for many seniors is the thought that at some point, a move to a nursing home or other institutional living arrangement will be unavoidable. After building a lifetime of memories in a family home, including raising children, caring for grandchildren, perhaps losing a spouse, home is a place of unparalleled comfort and nostalgia for seniors.
Hillendale Home Care is pleased to offer a way to avoid a nursing home and keep senior loved ones in familiar surroundings: professional in-home care. According to the Family Caregiver Alliance’s recently updated stats, the vast majority of the elderly – as many as 80% – are remaining in private homes as they age. Below are four types of care that improve the safety and wellbeing of seniors right in the comfort of home:
