Most seniors would like nothing better than to age gracefully in their own homes. No one wants to be asked to leave a house they have loved for many years. Unfortunately, this happens quite often. Children and other family members sometimes feel their loved ones would be better off in some type of facility, such as a long term care unit or an assisted living.
This does not have to be the case, however. With the right information and tools, seniors can age in the comfort of their own homes.
Every family has a different situation, but in many cases keeping a loved one at home is feasible. Even when family members are not available to help out on a regular basis, there are many services that are easily accessible with the right information.
Everything from senior centers to adult day programs, meals on wheels to cleaning services and home care companies are available in every town across Monmouth and Middlesex counties. These services provide housekeeping, cooking, social interaction, transportation and so much more!
From Manalpan to Monroe, Middletown to East Brunswick, one can find a senior center in every town providing fun daily activities, food and trips. For a more structured environment, look into Saint Peters Adult Day Care in Monroe Township or Wee Care in Middletown. All provide transportation and will keep your loved one busy for at least part of the day. Another wonderful solution is employing a companion or licensed aide for your parent through a company such as Senior Helpers Home Care.
Having an aide or companion in your loved one's home can make aging in place a stress free option. From meal preparation to light housekeeping, from providing transportation to medicine reminders, from bathing and grooming to simply getting around, an aide or companion can do it all. Whether it is several hours a week or 24/7, Senior Helpers can help you help your loved one stay in their home. Feel free to call with questions or for information.
Senior Helpers wants to be a local source of information to help you help you family!
