San Mateo County Senior Home Care

A change in circumstances – and perspective

Self-reliance is one of the hallmarks of adulthood and something we cherish even as we age. However, there comes a time when our ability to care for ourselves wanes. Although it is a change that brings about many uncomfortable feelings, it is actually a natural process. Of course, it may still be difficult to deal with, especially when we’re put in the position (perhaps for the first time) of having to accept help from others. There is a way, though, to make these circumstances less frightening and more fulfilling. If your loved one has begun to lose important functions such as eyesight, hearing, motor skills, and more, consider inviting one or more caring people into their lives to provide assistance. Where do you find such compassionate and dedicated individuals? They are already part of the amazing staff at the Institute on Aging, just waiting to be of service to your senior.

Staying safe and healthy through transition

Our staff of visiting nurses, physical and occupational therapists, nutritionists, and home health aides know about the special needs of the elderly. They can help reduce the fear and uncertainty your loved one may feel with regard to their changing abilities. They can also see that the senior maximizes any functionality they do have, while making sure they are as safe and healthy as possible in their homes. It takes courage to relinquish control over things we’ve managed for many years, including our bodies, our houses, and other aspects of our lives. But if done correctly, the shift can be gentle, meaningful, and worthwhile. And staying in familiar environments – such as the home your loved one has known for decades – is a very big part of that.
