We can be there for your loved ones
— when you can’t be
In-home care assistance services can be the best answer to providing support for your aging loved ones. It is hard to know where to turn when a family realizes that their elder family member can no longer stay safe and manage on their own. You can trust our screened and trained caregivers to provide superior and caring service.
Many factors come into play:
- Is there a family member who has the time and patience to be a caregiver?
- Is your loved one in another city?
- How will care services be paid for?
- Would Mom or Dad prefer to stay in their home?
All of these questions and more can be handled with the help of a professional in-home care manager supporting the family through these life changes.
Depending on a family caregiver is frequently the first step that a family will take. While this may be a low cost option, it can quickly take its toll on the family member who makes significant personal and financial sacrifices in order to care for a loved one. Depression and stress affect over half of all family caregivers, resulting in weakened immune systems and sleepless nights. It is also frequently a “learn as you go” endeavor. Companion Care provides respite care for family caregivers who may be overwhelmed.
Engaging an in-home care assistance service early on to give the family member respite from day to day caregiving demands can actually save you money in the long run. Hiring respite care can extend the time that a family caregiver can care for a loved one effectively.
Caregivers need a life too, and an agency caregiver can help you live your life without resenting your family caregiver position. Most in-home care assistance services are available for as little or a much as you need.
The greatest benefit to engaging in-home care giving assistance early on is that your loved one will be more comfortable when they are in need of more care. Throughout this cycle, the experienced in-home care managers can give you professional guidance concerning the needs of your loved one through in-home assessments, regular care management and on-call emergency support.
