The Importance of Maintaining Mobility
Dad used to love working on his hobby airplanes outside on the patio, while mom enjoyed gathering her friends over each week for socializing and a game of cards – but now that they are older, it’s becoming harder for them to move around and stay mobile. Things our loved one once did – showering, tending to the garden or even picking up groceries at the supermarket – are that much harder today, but that doesn’t mean the quality of life for your family member has to decrease.
Home health care services are designed to keep your loved one mobile and functioning as independently as possible. Professional and trained health care providers are available as much – or as little – as your senior family member needs. Dad might love to have his alone time with his hobbies, but needs a little assistance getting dressed in the morning, while grandmother enjoys visiting her neighbors but could use some help creating a menu, shopping for groceries and stocking the kitchen. Depending on the needs of your loved one, professional health care providers are available 24/7 to provide just the care that is required to keep your dear family member mobile and functioning as independently as possible.
We know how important it is to feel like we can take care of ourselves, but the truth is, sometimes it’s just not possible – we want to do more with our mind than our bodies allow us! Grandfather might not feel like he needs the assistance, but for the sake of safety, having a trained professional around offers peace of mind to the entire family and allows your grandfather to enjoy his day more fully without worrying about the risk of falls or accidents. Home health care services accommodate the needs of both the patient and the family, while offering assistance in:
- Bathing and dressing
- Meal planning and preparation
- Doctors appointments
Taking care of an elder is taxing on your life, too. Maintaining your own household and that of an elder loved one is never easy – home health care services can step in at any time to provide you the respite and recuperation you need every so often.
Don’t miss out on family time or vacations – or even miss days at work – because you feel that there is no one to help you care for your loved ones. Professional home health care services are here to help and provide hourly to live-in care when you need it.
