Some level of physical and mental decline is a normal part of aging. However, as seniors begin to lose some of their abilities, they may withdraw in themselves, become anxious or depressed, and stop doing the things they love. To prevent this from happening and support your loved one throughout their golden years, Comfort Keepers offers in home senior care options that can be personalized to perfectly fit their needs, lifestyle, interests, and more.
Unlike other care options, including those found in nursing homes and other senior living facilities, in home senior care focuses on each client individually. Our services are shaped in accordance with your family's unique situation, so your loved one can get the care they deserve. Additionally, senior care provided in the home allows seniors to age in the house they have lived in for decades, surrounded by their memories and belongings.
Professional vs. Family Care
When deciding on the best care option for their loved ones, many people consider taking on the role of the primary caregiver for their aging parents or relatives. While caring for a senior loved one can help you form a deep bond with them, it does come with its own set of challenges that may prove to be just too overwhelming for someone without proper training or qualifications. Many family caregivers develop some health problems as a result of caregiving and are often unable to strike a healthy balance between taking care of their loved one and accomplishing other daily tasks.
It is natural that you want to be there for your loved one, but it is also important to keep in mind that you do not have to sacrifice your career or hobbies to provide your parent or relative with the best care. In home senior care can help your loved one maintain independence, lead an active and fulfilled lifestyle, and remain physically, mentally, and socially stimulated. If you so choose, you can opt for respite care as well - short-term care provided whenever you need to take a break from caregiving. This option can enable you to remain your loved one's primary caregiver but also take proper care of yourself and your needs. Ultimately, this can even help you become a better caregiver for your parent or relative.
