If you’ve ever wondered what a caregiver does, you may already know the answer. Are you a close friend or family member of a senior citizen who helps manage their daily life? Do you make sure that their health is maintained through doctor’s appointments, grocery shopping, and supervision? Do you manage their medications or assist them with bathing, dressing, or grooming?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you are already a caregiver. You probably also know what a difficult, time-consuming, and emotionally challenging a role it can be. This is especially true if you have a full-time job, your own family, or even personal health issues to take care of. You may feel overwhelmed and even guilty when you have to squeeze in some time for yourself.
The Institute on Aging knows this is not the way things should be. We also understand what you’re going through – and want to you to know you don’t have to do it alone.
Start a conversation about home care
If your senior is having trouble taking care of themselves, and you’re having trouble taking care of them, you may need to talk about professional home care. Starting this conversation may not be easy, but IOA can help. We understand the particular needs of the elderly, as well as how to talk about those needs in a sensitive and constructive way.
Whether you’re looking for basic information about what services are available, or questions about how to finance such assistance, you’ve come to the right place. We can talk you through the necessary preparations, help manage day-to-day tasks, and even make recommendations for the future.
Getting additional care at home is often a time of transition – both for the senior and any previous caregivers they may have had. The IOA has highly skilled visiting nurses, physical and occupational therapists, and home health aides who’ve guided many people through this transition. We bring years of experience and dedication — as well as a positive and upbeat attitude — to every senior we serve. And with your permission, we’d like to do the same for your loved one.
