If your loved one has recently undergone a major medical event or if they have lost a lot of their strength, you may be considering the different types of senior home care assistance that are available. Of course, this is no easy feat considering the seemingly endless amount of choices.The first thing that you have to do when thinking about senior care for your loved one is to keep their needs in mind. Every person is different and your loved one may be suffering from chronic conditions not common amongst their peers.
One of the most common senior home care options is getting a caregiver for your loved one. How much time a caregiver spends in your loved one’s home will depend on a number of things including their mobility, chronic conditions they may be suffering from, and other factors such as their living situation and personality. Caregivers can help your loved one with the nonmedical assistance they may need. This includes personal care, helping them go to the bathroom, helping them keep up their hygiene, running errands, and driving them where they need to go.
Senior care can help your loved one stay independent, happy and healthy for a long time. Many people underestimate the importance of independence for seniors but maintaining a sense of self could go a long way in improving their quality-of-life. If you are your loved one’s primary care provider and are not ready to hire a full-time caregiver, you may want to consider respite care. Respite care is a form of senior care that could help you take some time off and gain better control of your life. Respite care, if you are not aware of what it is or have never heard of it before, is basically temporary assistance. A caregiver will come to your home and take care of your loved one for a limited period of time, leaving you free to do other things.
Most people decide to go with respite care when they need to run errands or go on a vacation. However, you can hire a respite care professional basically whenever you need to. For example, if you need to take some time off, go to the spa or spend some time alone, respite care is there for you. Taking care of yourself is important and you should never be ashamed of that because it will make you a better caregiver for your loved one. Taking some time for yourself to focus on what you need right now does not mean you do not love your parent and that you're not there for them. On the contrary, you're taking some time for yourself so you can come back and be the caregiver they deserve.
