Aging brings with it some natural changes – vision sometimes fades, the body often moves a little slower, etc. And those natural changes can make everyday activities like dressing, preparing meals, and housework more challenging. When this occurs, families often start investigating assisted living options for their senior loved ones, to ensure all their needs can be met. Yet, imagine a scenario where it was conceivable to stay in the comfort of home regardless of these difficulties of aging.
Partners in Senior Care, providers of compassionate Libertyville IL home care seniors can count on, wants you to know that it’s not only conceivable, but often, preferred. Take a look at our quick home care primer below to learn more about the advantages of in-home senior care:
- Home care services are delivered one-on-one, guaranteeing more focused attention than in a nursing home or assisted living facility. There is no “wait your turn” when care is required.
- An in-home caregiver can help to promote a healthy lifestyle. Home caregivers can make and serve healthy and nutritious meals that appeal to the individual and can also monitor the amount of food eaten.
- As an added bonus, a personalized, physician-recommended daily exercise program can be added to the senior’s routine, with the added safety of a qualified professional being present.
- At home senior care cultivates pride and autonomy, which are critical elements for a positive, healthy way of life. Home care (specifically, private pay home care) can offer professional care customized to meet the needs of the family and individual on any given day, whether the needs are as simple as companionship or more complex, such as personal care.
- With the added advantage of transportation to and from various appointments, social activities or errands, home care allows families more free time together.
- Private duty, in-home caretakers can remind clients when to take medications.
