From keeping your loved one company to ensuring there is someone around to help take a loved one to the doctor when you can’t be there, there are many benefits to choosing in-home senior care with Senior Helpers. More than 65 million Americans seek to balance the daily demands of work, home, children and caring for someone who may be living with an illness, disability or simply aging. In-home care is a safe, affordable option for families that provides them with the support they need while allowing their loved ones to say in the comfort of their own homes and communities.
Comfort of Home
Nine out of ten Americans 65 and older want to stay at home for as long as possible, and 80 percent think their current home is where they will always live. Working with a home care agency like Senior Helpers can allow your loved one to receive the care they need while in the comfort of their own home- preserving their dignity and maintaining a good quality of life.
Professional caregivers enable your senior loved one to enjoy living independently longer. The services offered allow seniors to receive day-to-day help with the personal care they need and assistance with activities of daily living such as bathing, grooming, and medication reminders. Ultimately, this benefits you by keeping your loved one safe, healthy, engaged and active.
Home care services provide meaningful, one-on-one care that helps to build strong relationships between a Senior Helpers caregiver and their clients. We match our caregivers’ experience, skills set, and personality to your loved one’s needs. Our service schedules are extremely flexible to ensure your senior receives the care they need, when they need it. The result is a consistent, working relationship so beneficial that our clients often consider their caregiver to be a part of their family.
Peace of Mind
If you are caregiving from a distance, working with an in-home care agency for your senior can help you to feel confident that your loved one is cared for when you can’t be there. Trained and qualified caregivers can assess safety risks and make simple corrections in the home to ensure your loved one is able to get around easily without the potential for injury. We are committed to providing your loved ones with increased care as their needs change to ensure their quality of life and your peace of mind.
Reduce feelings of Isolation
Research shows that aging adults stay healthier with social interaction. Feelings of isolation are a major problem among aging Americans. A caregiver’s companionship can impact not only physical wellbeing, but emotional health as well. Our caregivers can become trusted friends for walks, reading, cards, games, movies, meals, and other social activities.
Prevent falls and other common injuries
Falls are the number one cause of emergency room visits for people age 65 and over. They can easily happen when a senior is attempting a simple household task such as reaching for a high shelf or carrying something down the stairs. Hiring a caregiver to assist a loved one with these everyday tasks can help to prevent accidents that can potentially lead to serious injury.
