New Year & an In Home Caregiver in Colorado Springs, CO

Jan 11, 2018 by Glenn Savage

It's January and time to make those New Year's resolutions! Polls show that most American adults actually make and try to stick to New Year's resolutions, however unsuccessful they usually end up. This year, make a resolution that is easy to accomplish and will have a tremendous benefit. Take a good look at your senior loved ones and see if they could use some support from an in-home caregiver.

 

Why Should You Use an In-Home Caregiver in the New Year in Colorado Springs, CO?

 

Common signs that an aging family member may benefit from an in-home caregiver include:

 

            Increased forgetfulness                       Poor hygiene               Missed appointments

 

            Loss of a driver's license                     Loneliness                   Signs of depression

 

            A messy home                                     Social isolation            Frequent falls or injuries

 

            Chronic pain                                       Loss of mobility          Lots of Different Medications

 

Truthfully, there is no one reason that a senior may benefit from senior care and there is no right or wrong reason for utilizing the services and support of a caregiver. What we do know is that over half of seniors over the age of 65 require assistance with at least one area of daily living and the percentage increases with age. Some seniors only need help a few hours a week, perhaps to tidy up the home or prepare meals. Others find local transportation services to be a lifesaver, while others enjoy the socialization and companionship. In more complex situations, seniors may require daily care or even 24-hour support and supervision.

 

Not all seniors need in-home care as the result of a long-term or progressive condition. Some seniors lack the family or social support to safely recover from an injury, illness, or medical procedure in their own home. Without a caregiver, these seniors need to spend time in a nursing home or convalescent facility.

 

Studies show that American seniors want to spend as much of their life in the comfort and security of their own home as possible. Sometimes, age-related, chronic, or progressive conditions make this hard or even impossible without support.

 

If your senior loved one shows signs that they could use some support with daily living activities or personal care, make it your resolution, this year, to consider the many benefits of an in-home caregiver. It's an easy resolution to keep, and it can add great value to the life of somebody you love.
