You’re worried. You’re more than a little scared. Mom fell and broke her arm. And Dad narrowly missed hitting a pedestrian at the shopping center. They insist that everything is fine. As far as they’re concerned, moving to a nursing home or assisted living facility is simply out of the question. They want to stay in their own home. As far as you’re concerned, it’s becoming obvious that it’s no longer safe for them to do so…
Personalized, Compassionate Care At Home Is Possible
As they age, you may find that your loved ones need help to maintain their independence. This year, instead of another sweater or pair of slippers, why not give your loved ones a gift that will keep them safe and well cared for all year long?
Consider companion care. It’s like having a good friend stop by, break the day-to-day monotony of living alone, or help them with a project like scrapbooking or planting some flowers. Or, maybe they may need a little help with household tasks like laundry, vacuuming, or general maintenance – tasks that may prove to be a bit daunting for otherwise independent individuals.
Often seniors become confused and can’t remember if or when they took their daily medications. A friendly reminder from a visiting caregiver will help keep them on schedule. And if they require a special diet, a daily visit – and a little help with meal preparation – will guarantee that they’re eating the healthy foods that their doctor has recommended.
Specialized Alzheimer’s/dementia care. For seniors who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, a more advanced care plan is necessary. As these diseases progress, caregivers can design progressively structured programs to stimulate memory and create safe and meaningful activities to help seniors stay engaged.
A Gift of Care Custom-designed For Your Loved One
Your gift of care can be designed to provide a safe, nurturing environment for seniors at any stage of the aging process. Employing proven protocols and techniques, the goal is to help your loved one remain as independent as possible… for as long as possible.
Peace Of Mind: It’s The Best Gift Of All!
With a care plan in place, you’ll have peace of mind. You’ll know that your loved one is eating regularly and taking their medications. You’ll know that they haven’t fallen or wandered away. And you’ll know that they’re safe and secure when you can’t be there. And that’s the best gift of all!
