It usually happens right after a fall, an accident, or a trip to the hospital. All of a sudden you come face to face with the fact your elderly parent or loved one can no longer take care of himself or herself on a regular basis.
They need help.
The idea behind in home elder care services is to help your loved one remain in a comfortable, secure environment for as long as possible. They love their home. And chances are they’ve told you they want to remain in their home.
Assisted living facilities provide supervision on a regular basis. Depending on the facility, they can provide limited support for the things most needed, or provide constant care, depending on the situation. With assisted living, the entire community is based on the needs of its population, and you’ll have access to a variety of staff members.
With in home care, you’ll receive a more personalized care routine. You decide what services you need, and how much you need during the day. Maybe you need a check in service; someone to make sure she eats and takes her medicine while you’re at work during the day. Or maybe you need a full time eight hour caregiver to be around while you are away during the day.
With in home elder care, you are in control. You set your requirements, and you select the right option for you. It’s more affordable than assisted living, because you’re only paying for the services you need. And your loved one will be more comfortable staying in the familiar place of home.
