Home Instead for independent living at home

Home Instead

There is a variety of care options available to ageing adults. But when does the older person and their family know that the time is right to look for a care option or which option to choose?

When Help is Needed;
Just because an ageing adult is having some issues at home does not mean that it is time to recommend a move to a nursing home. Home Care might be the perfect solution for an older parent who is recovering from an illness or surgery, such as a knee replacement, and needs help around the home, or for an older person who has lost a spouse and has become lonely and depressed to the point where their own health is suffering.

Similarly, a widower’s increasing forgetfulness could be putting him at risk of forgetting to pay the bills, forgetting to take his medications, or worse.

However, the first step in determining whether care is necessary is to take your ageing loved one’s needs and desires into account. Sometimes these are difficult conversations to have with a parent who is convinced that he or she does not need help.

The best argument for a family caregiver may be to acknowledge their desire to stay at home but to point out that a little extra help could keep the older person safe and independent at home for longer.

Signs that often trigger a call to Home Instead include;

  • Reluctance to leave the house
  • Losing interest in meals
  • Declining personal hygiene
  • Declining driving skills
  • Losing track of medication

If the above sounds familiar and you would like to know more about what care is available, then call our Care Consultant at Home Instead Mullingar to arrange a Care Consultation today, on 044 938 5260 or .
