How Home Care Fosters Independence September 14, 2018

How Home Care Fosters Independence, Wayne, New Jersey

It’s natural to become more reliant on others with age. Even simple tasks like cooking, cleaning, and grooming become challenging when arthritis takes over or mobility becomes limited; however, just because an elderly loved one could use a little extra help around the house, does not mean he or she has to move into a nursing home. By arranging for home care, your relative can remain in a comfortable and familiar environment and continue to thrive. Here, the compassionate team at Visiting Angels in Wayne, NJ, discusses one of the biggest benefits of home care: freedom.

Fostering Freedom for Seniors

home careMost people want to remain at home for as long as possible, and traveling caregivers allow many to do just that. Home care lets seniors maintain their independence without threatening their health or safety. Depending on the circumstances, it may also allow them to maintain their financial freedom. If their house is already paid off, for example, they can spend whatever income or savings they have in other ways. Nursing homes, on the other hand, can be costly and often limit how much disposable income residents have.

Fostering Freedom for Family Members

Seniors aren’t the only ones who can benefit from home care. Those who take care of their aging loved ones will also gain some freedom by having a caregiver stop by periodically. As long as the caregiver is at the house, they will have peace of mind knowing their relative is safe. In certain scenarios, home care may even allow them to take vacations or pick up odd jobs that take them away from the house for an extended period — all without jeopardizing their loved one’s health.

If you have an aging relative who could use an extra set of hands but wants to maintain his or her independence, turn to Visiting Angels. Based in Wayne, NJ, they are proud to offer quality home care to clients throughout the area. Their comprehensive services include everything from senior companionship and meal prep to light housekeeping and medication monitoring.
