Live in Care for Seniors in Fairfield, CT
If you were to ask one hundred seniors today whether they would prefer to move into an assisted living facility, nursing home, or remain home, the vast majority of them would prefer to ‘age in place.’ That’s because home is where they feel comfortable. Even if they haven’t lived in this particular house or apartment for many years, they have probably decorated it to be as comfortable for them as possible.
As people get older, though, they may run into numerous challenges. It may become difficult for them to get up and down the stairs. If the washer and dryer happens to be upstairs or even in the basement, they may begin avoiding doing laundry altogether, especially if they don’t want to express any concerns they have with regard to their safety to their family members.
Relying on professional and experienced home care services is a great asset for people of all ages who have difficulty tending to certain things on their own. When you’re talking about seniors, there may come a time when live in care may need to be discussed as well. This is a form of home care that takes things one step further.
November is Home Care Month and for any senior who requires assistance getting out of bed, going to the bathroom, getting to the stores and doctors’ appointments, and more, it may be practical to rely on live in home care.
The opportunity to remain comfortable.
The most important aspect of any type of home care is to help the elderly individual be comfortable, but also safe. A home care aide, more specifically a live in caregiver, would be there for the senior any time of the day or night. If the elderly individual has to use the bathroom at 2 o’clock in the morning, they can call on the caregiver to support them getting out of bed and going to the bathroom, and then getting back into bed.
This caregiver can also assist or even prepare meals. They can provide transportation in many situations, if they drive.
By relying on a live in caregiver, the senior will be able to remain at home as long as they want to. There is no need to move into any other situation or living environment, including with other family members. The best situation is wherever the senior will be most comfortable. For the vast majority of them, that happens to be home.
