Enhance Senior Independence at Home with Home & Hearth Caregivers
It’s true: there’s no place like home, and an overwhelming majority of adults age 65 and over, 90 percent per AARP, prefer to age in place in their own homes as they age. But what does that mean when it comes to senior independence?
While the desire to remain living at home as opposed to moving to an assisted living facility is extremely common, it can bring about many concerns for older adults who need help with daily tasks such as driving, fixing meals, bathing, ambulating, etc. The encouraging news is that services from a professional in home care provider, like those supplied by Home & Hearth Caregivers, are structured to support senior independence and improve wellbeing and confidence both inside and outside the home.
At Home & Hearth Caregivers, we offer unique senior care services that support older adults throughout the aging process and help them keep the independence they want. Our services include:
Transportation and companionship:
Being able to get out of the house to run errands and socialize with a friend are important elements of our self-sufficiency. Senior caregivers can provide transportation and even accompany older adults on outings to help enhance socialization, and our caregivers are also available to provide companionship both at home and on the go to assure your loved one always has a trusted friend by her side.
An in home care provider can recommend assistive products and adaptive devices to build independence and coordinate the purchase of these products. A professional home care agency can also provide help with coordination of care across health care providers for the easiest and safest care transitions.
Physical activity plays a vital role in sustaining a senior’s physical and mental wellness. Senior caregivers help encourage activities and exercise to help enhance the senior’s body, mind and spirit.
Everyone’s care needs are different, and we can provide as much or as little care as your loved one necessitates, whether that means a little extra assistance at home with housekeeping, assistance to safely bathe, or a wide variety of other services. Regardless of what the needs may be, we’ve got a solution to promote the peace of mind and independence he or she deserves.
Maintaining senior independence is one of our top priorities as a specialized Chicago in home care provider. Contact us today at 800-349-0663 to learn how we can best meet your senior loved one’s needs.
