#1 Home care agency serving Boerne, Fair Oaks, Leon Springs and The Dominion
At Inspired Care Solutions, we care for seniors while supporting family caregivers. Our care team is ready to help you navigate your long-term care policy and the claims process.
As we all know, the aging process eventually brings about physical and mental changes that can interfere with an active and independent lifestyle. Declining abilities doesn’t always require a move to a nursing home or assisted living, but it may indicate a need for extra help to support your parent’s desire to age in place.
There are many ways to support a senior’s desire to age in place. One way is to provide extra help with activities of daily living. This could include things like preparing meals, doing laundry, or taking care of basic hygiene needs. It’s also important to keep an eye on the senior’s mental health, and be on the lookout for signs of depression or cognitive decline. Finally, it’s important to provide social and emotional support, whether that means spending time with the senior or helping them stay connected to their community.
If you or your family members are feeling like you need more help, it’s probably time to get it. Ultimately, adding a home health aide or in home nurse to your squad will benefit you and your older loved one.
Consider the following factors to determine if home care could help your parents safely age in place.
–When basic needs are not being met: If your parents are not eating well, not taking their medications as prescribed, or not getting enough exercise, it may be time to consider in-home help.
–When there are safety concerns: If your parents are experiencing falls, wanderlust or other safety risks, in-home care can provide the supervision and assistance they need to stay safe at home. For starters, we can provide a home safety evaluation to assess the risk levels in your loved one’s home.
–When you’re at your wit’s end: Caring for an aging parent can be emotionally and physically draining. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, it’s important to ask for help. We provide respite services to help caregivers get the rest they need. We will care for your loved one and give you peace of mind while you take a few hours, a day, or a weekend to recharge.
If you’re thinking about adding home care to your parent’s support system, give us a call. We’d be happy to answer any questions you have and help you get started.
