Options for Helping Older Parents Age at Home

Hired Hands Homecare is experienced in helping older parents live comfortably and safely in their own home.

Ask most older people if they wish to age at home, even if they are struggling with aging-related issues, and the response is in most cases a resounding “yes!” Having to move away from their home, a place with so many memories, can be distressing, even if they admit that it’s getting more difficult to cope. Yet, wishing to continue to be at home and having the ability to stay at home, all alone, are two separate things. So what can you do? Even as a 24/7, around-the-clock family caregiver, you are not able to do it all by yourself. You need help and it could be that in-home care is the solution.

Many families discover that preparing for this form of care to help parents age at home requires the expertise of a professional who fully understands all of the options. And it’s true — appropriate care coordination from an elder care specialist will help everyone involved feel much more organized and secure.

Who Can Help?

Many older individuals can benefit from help with several facets of their life, including meal preparation, getting to and from doctors’ appointments, taking medications, and conducting the activities of daily living. Trying to correlate all of these tasks can be a challenging endeavor for a family caregiver. What most people do not understand is that home care agencies, like Hired Hands Homecare, can help identify, locate, and coordinate all of the factors for effective care at home. They can even uncover suggestions that may not have been first considered for helping older parents.

Home care agencies have resources and contacts that can be incredibly beneficial for families who are in the middle of preparing for long-term care.
