As the holidays draw near, time spent with family becomes more frequent. This extra time is often when the daily struggles of our elderly loved ones become more apparent. How do you know when it’s time to seek in-home care for an aging Kansas City senior? Look for these signs:
Lack of Mobility
If your elderly loved one needs assistance moving around the house or driving to and from the grocery store, doctor appointments or family events, it might be time to seek a Kansas City caregiver. Our trusted professionals can help with everything from senior bath time and grooming to transportation and running errands.
Inability to Prepare Healthy Meals
Elderly adults will often lose the ability (and desire) to cook healthy meals for themselves, resulting in small portions or highly processed foods. An in-home senior caregiver can assist with grocery shopping, meal planning and meal preparation.
As memory loss and other signs of dementia begin to show, it’s important to avoid isolation for the safety of elderly individuals. Our caregivers have up to 25 years of dementia and Alzheimer’s home care experience. We know the stresses of caring at home for your loved one can be immense and disruptive for families—a caregiver can give peace-of-mind when you’re unable to provide care yourselves.
Caregivers can provide more than assistance with daily health endeavors, they can be a partner on outdoor walks, a friendly opponent in a chess game or a companion at movies. Our reliable caregiving staff will treat your loved one like a member of their own families.
With more and more Kansas City seniors choosing to “age in place,” in-home caregivers allow aging individuals the luxury and independence of remaining in the comfort of their own homes rather than moving to an assisted living facility or nursing home. Caregivers can provide as much or as little service as needed. Services will be personalized to your family’s specific requirements.
