Senior Care At Home Is A Family Issue
Comfort Keepers encourages family members to take an active role in their senior loved ones’ well-being
Finding the right senior care at home for your loved one is a trying process. Each senior is an individual and what ends up working for them may not be what works for most people. In order to make sure you are doing all you can to find the best possible solution for your loved one, the best thing to do is make sure they are involved but include the rest of your family as well.
Senior care is a family issue for more reasons than one. Although you know your loved one well, the burden of finding the senior care at home that will work for your loved one may simply be too much for you to handle. That's OK. Getting the whole family involved will help take some of the weight off your shoulders. Of course, your senior parent should be involved as much as possible in the process. This will help ensure you are making the right choice together, but it will also give them a sense of ownership over the decision.
After you find senior care at home for your loved one, you should continue being involved in their care as much as possible. This is particularly important if your loved one is seriously ill or is experiencing cognitive impairment. You may need to advocate for your loved one to make sure they are living life on their own terms and this is an incredibly important aspect of caregiving.
The senior care at home that ends up working out best for your loved one can involve a wide range of non-medical services. In Shelton, CT, Comfort Keepers provides both personal care and companionship care services. Although we have a particular set of services that are most common, our approach to senior care at home is all about treating each older adult as an individual. This means we will work with you and your loved one to make sure they are getting just the right amount of care for them.
It is not surprising that these days, most seniors opt for senior care at home over moving to an assisted living facility or nursing home. In-home caregiving allows seniors to maintain their independence and continue their daily routine in a dignified manner.
