Maybe you’ve toyed with the notion of getting your senior some help at home, but aren’t quite sure what they need. A home health aide to assist them with personal care activities? A visiting nurse for their complicated medical needs? A nutritionist to help create a specialized diet for them? Or perhaps you have multiple concerns about your loved one being home alone, and don’t know how to categorize them.
This kind of confusion happens more often than you might think when considering elder care, After all, the array of services available is even vaster than you might think! In fact, the majority of people are quite impressed when they hear about it. But when you do get to that point, you need to speak with a knowledgeable professional who can tailor services to your loved one’s specific needs.
Fortunately, these types of professionals can be found through the Institute on Aging.
Meeting seniors’ needs is what we do
No matter what your senior’s needs, the IOA can very likely meet them. Let’s take personal care as an example. When you’re home alone and it seems like there’s no one to mind, personal care can often be the first thing to go. Seniors may stop brushing their teeth, their hair, or even discontinue bathing.
Lack of attention to personal hygiene can even be a symptom of depression, so be sure to involve your loved one’s physician if you feel this is the case. Otherwise, consider getting one of our trained home health aides if your senior can’t seem to find their motivation anymore. We provide hands-on assistance that helps seniors feel their best while increasing their confidence and well-being. Helping them with hygiene may also reduce the risk of infection or health concerns.
Or perhaps your senior needs someone to help with housekeeping. If washing, sweeping, dusting and vacuuming has gone from being challenging for them to being hazardous, one of our capable aides can take over. This not only lifts burdensome chores from your loved one’s shoulders, but may prevent injury as well.
