With the end of summer, many of us must return to responsibilities we may have had a break from. As activities and commitments resume, we often find ourselves struggling to fit too many family and work responsibilities into a busy week.
If you are caring for aging parents, additional commitments may include trips to the grocery store, visits to the pharmacy, laundry and housecleaning … all in addition to your own household responsibilities. Instead, wouldn’t it be nice to have time to visit with your parents, to have a few extra minutes to share the day’s events, the latest news of your family, or enjoy a meal together? But how do you find the time to help your parents remain comfortable and safe in their own home without taking away from the precious time you need for your work, home and family?
A reputable home care agency, such as HomeCare, Inc., can provide a range of personal care and supportive services to help individuals of any age stay safe and comfortable at home. Medication reminders, meal preparation, errands, light housekeeping and more can be arranged on a set schedule or during times when your other commitments make it impossible for you to do yourself.
Knowing that a parent is able to shower, dress and have a wonderful start to the day, that cupboards are filled with nutritious options, the sheets have been changed and the laundry is done, can bring peace of mind and a bit more time for yourself. Just think of all the time you’ll have to visit, with more meaningful moments than the din of the vacuum cleaner or leaving to run errands. You’ll find the precious time you spend together, well worth the visit.
All employees of HomeCare, Inc. who provide personal care are fully licensed and/or certified and have had a completed background check, so you can be sure that your loved one is in good hands.
