Our caregivers are trained to report and changes emotionally, physically or mentally. Our clients have families that sometimes live out of town and are not able to see what is happening daily. As family you may want to step in for your aging parent, but you can't neglect balancing other needs: a full time job, children and family. Ignoring yourself and too many pressures can cause you ill health.
Home Is Where The Heart Is Home Care can keep families abreast of mom and dad's conditions as their needs evolve. Maybe you have thought about asking your parents to move in, however, most elderly would like to age "in place" and maintain their independence. 9 out of 10 Americans 65 and older want to stay at home for as long as possible, and 80% think their current home are where they will always live. Our agency can help make this a reality.
Technology is just not enough. Having a person one on one with your loved one works. Telehealth devices or home monitoring systems are not the answer. There is no way to replace a trained professional to care for your parents. The presence of a person is comforting enough to ensure a sense of calm.
If you have had your mom or dad in a hospital, our agency can do our best to follow all discharge instructions along with making sure all medications are taken. This alone can stop hospital readmissions. Ensuring your loved one follows the doctor's care plan. A home care agency is another set of eyes and ears and this alone could make the outcome a positive one.
