Home is where the heart is, and the vast majority of adults age 65 and over, 90 percent according to AARP, prefer to age in place in their own homes as they age. But what does that mean when it comes to senior independence?
While the desire to remain home as opposed to moving to an assisted living facility is quite common, it can present many challenges for those seniors who require assistance with everyday tasks like driving, preparing meals, bathing, walking, etc. The great news is that home care services, like those provided by Caregivers by WholeCare, are designed to support senior independence and increase wellbeing and confidence both inside and outside the home.
At Caregivers by WholeCare of Nashville, TN, we offer unique senior care services that support our clients throughout the aging process and help them keep the independence they crave. Our services include:
- Transportation and companionship: Getting out of the house to run errands and socializing with a friend are important aspects of our independence. In-home caregivers can provide transportation and even accompany seniors on outings to help them maintain social interactions, and our caregivers can be there to provide companionship at home and on the go to ensure your loved one always has a trusted friend by her side.
- Care coordination: An in-home caregiver can make recommendations for assistive products and adaptive devices to enhance independence and coordinate the purchase of products. A professional in-home care agency can also assist with coordinating care across healthcare providers for the smoothest care transitions.
- Exercise and activities: Exercise plays an important role in maintaining a senior’s physical and mental health. In-home caregivers help encourage activities and exercise to help enrich the senior’s mind, body, and spirit.
- Convenience care packages: Everyone’s care needs are different, and we can provide as much or as little care as your loved one requires, whether that means a little help at home with housekeeping, assistance to bathe safely, or a wide variety of other services. No matter what the needs may be, we’ve got a solution to offer the peace of mind and independence he or she deserves.
Maintaining senior independence is one of our top priorities as Nashville in-home caregivers. Contact us today to learn how we can best meet your loved one’s needs.
