    Aging At Home: Three Benefits Of Using Home Health Care Services


    Heath care practitioners support the idea that seniors who are given the opportunity to age at home lead fuller, happier lives.


    Skilled Medical Assistance on Demand
    Seniors who choose to age at home may face difficulties when it comes to administering medications alone. Aging at home isn’t always associated with medical needs, but when it is, having a skilled, experienced nurse on hand is invaluable.


    Assistance with Daily Activities, Light Housekeeping
    Aside from offering companionship, the right home health care agency can assist with daily activities, like dressing, bathing, even light housekeeping duties. Having help on a daily basis makes it convenient for seniors with disabilities to continue to live in and maintain the home they love with minimal effort.


    Peace of Mind for Loved Ones
    Whether it’s help performing daily tasks, running errands or administering medication, the right in home health care service provides peace of mind for family members who are relieved to know that someone is available and willing to check on a loved one when they need it most.

    in Caregiving

     


    Senior Care can be described as a wilderness of interconnected family decisions.  Often people find that they have crash-landed into that situation.  They ask such questions as “What do I do?  Where do I turn for help?”  The Road Map to Senior Care is the guiding light to help one negotiate the path to care.  This book examines all of the options available for the care of senior loved ones in a clear, conversational fashion.


    Author and our guest, Stephen Andriko, will provide expert analysis that affords the our listeners with a non-judgmental approach to navigate through the maze of confusion that surrounds this extremely sensitive subject.  He will explore various delivery means such as in-home care or out-of-home placement highlighting the differences between similar services.  Further, he will discuss average costs for the various alternatives and offer resources that can help along the journey.  The purpose of Mr. Andriko's  book and our discussion today is to minimize the effects that painful emotion can have on the decision process.
