Choose In Home Care

As your parents advance in age, you may start to worry about how they are managing on their own. Perhaps you notice little things during visits, like an unkempt house or lawn, unopened mail on the table, expired or little food in the fridge or pantry, that make you realize just how much they are slowing down. You might be used to your mother always having something delicious baking in the kitchen or your dad pruning hedges and playing Mr. Fix-It. The reality that they can no longer keep up with the day-to-day chores of life is shocking to you as their child and almost assuredly unnerving to them.

Many older Americans wish to remain in their own homes as long as possible. It helps maintain their sense of independence and gives them comfort to be in familiar surroundings. How do you balance this desire to age in place with the fact that they simply cannot handle everything themselves and may actually be unsafe attempting to do it alone? A non-medical in-home senior care company like Home Care Plus might be the answer you and your aging parents are searching for. We are licensed and insured, and our professional, certified staff provides a wide range of home care services including:

Prior to the start of care, a Registered Nurse will meet with the client and family in the client’s place of residence allowing one-on-one exchange of information regarding the services needed and the services provided.  This time allows for identification of the client’s and his/her support system’s strengths, weaknesses, limitations, objectives and service needs. With the focus on health, psychosocial and environmental factors an individualized plan of care is developed based on the needs identified. This comprehensive plan of care is tailored to fit changing needs and thoroughly reviewed with the client, family members and/or responsible parties.
