The holiday season is a great opportunity for us to spend additional time with our parents. As we get older, we may notice some changes in our parents. Dad is not quite as strong as he used to be, or mom can’t quite remember the recipe she has made dozens of times. Often, as adult children, we don’t want to look at our parents as people who need help.
Talking to your parents about needing assistance is difficult; this is a conversation you might have avoided this holiday season. Although the conversation maybe tough, the alternative is much worse. In the home care industry, it is common to see elderly individuals sent to the hospital with preventable injuries. A change in balance or memory is a good reason to have a trained professional help them with daily activities.
Many people turn to home care as a reactive measure after an issue, but being proactive and bringing in a caregiver at the first sign of a change can prevent falls and other incidents. Queen City Homecare provides a 2 hour minimum for preventive care services such as light housekeeping, meal preparation and transportation. With a Registered Nurse handling all care plans at the start of service, we are able to provide the highest level of care, keeping your loved one in his or her home setting.
