It’s mid-morning, and you receive a phone call from your sister. She stopped by your mother’s apartment to visit and found her collapsed on the floor. Your mom got up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom and blacked out. When she awoke, she didn’t have the strength to get up. Therefore, she sat on the cold floor for hours until your sister arrived. What do you do now? Situations like this may make you think Mom needs to go to an assisted living community. Yet, you know she is capable of taking care of herself, and besides, you know she would never willingly leave her home.
Most seniors prefer to age in place or age at home. Understanding what that means and what to expect goes a long way in ensuring that Mom can live in her beloved home for as long as possible. With help from Home Instead Senior Care in Waterloo, it is possible to provide senior care at home so that you and your mother can rest easier knowing she is well cared for. We tailor our services around your mother’s needs with options for household duties, meal preparation, personal care, and companionship.
