Looking after elderly relatives whilst trying to hold down a full time job and continue with your normal life can be very difficult. For whatever reason many families are reluctant to put their loved ones into a nursing home and would rather they stay at home but this can often not seem like an option.
By employing a home care agency your loved one will be able to stay in their own home and will be looked after to the highest level possible. Whilst your time will be freed up so that the time that you spend with them can be quality time spent doing things you enjoy rather than just caring for them.
The home care agency will be able to put together an individual home care plan tailored to the individual needs of your loved one. From visiting just once a week to providing a full care package with three to four visits a day. Home care agencies are highly flexible and are therefore able to provide the level of care and support you need.
There are many reasons why people may need the services of a home care agency including people with disabilities, the elderly, people who suffer with long term conditions such as Dementia or Parkinsons disease, people who require palliative care or some assistance whilst loved ones are away on holiday. The ranges of services available are vast and include cooking, shopping, light housework, bathing/washing, getting up and getting dressed and prompting with medication. If you feel your family could benefit from some extra help contact your local home care agency they will be more than happy to discuss the options available to you.
