  3. Who Needs Senior Care and Why

Who_Needs_Senior_Care_And_Why_Home_Instead_Saskatoon, SK We believe anyone who needs help to stay safe and healthy in their own home can benefit from home care agency services. 

People recently discharged from the hospital may require temporary assistance with cooking, laundry and transportation. Family members with a cognitive impairment like dementia may benefit from ongoing help with medication reminders, bathing and toileting assistance, or overnight care. In general, if you worry your loved ones cannot safely care for themselves at home anymore and you have begun to feel the strain as their care needs increase you and your loved ones may benefit from the in-home care we provide.

In-home senior care provides practical support with a human touch. Our compassionate CAREGiversSM assist elder clients with common activities of daily living like showering, cooking and much more. CAREGivers can even help with errands and transportation.

Here are 5 reasons to consider in-home senior care and why:

Quality of Life. As your senior ages, keeping their life routine and familiar is important. Having the ability to stay in their home increases the chances that they will remain active and independent. Home Instead Senior Care provides in-home services to help keep your senior participate in daily activities as well as staying safe and clean. Being able to remain in their own home can motivate seniors to be more active. Keeping them in their familiar environment will also allow them to be more involved with family and friends.

Safety. The number one reason for in-home senior care is safety. One way to ensure your seniors' safety is by installing safety equipment throughout the home. Non slip carpets, walkers, grab bars, wheelchairs, and other safety devices can help keep your loved one safe. By having an in-home care professional, they can assist with housekeeping chores, clearing pathways and decluttering the home.

Personalized, Professional Care. Home Instead Senior Care hires trustworthy CAREGivers to provide professional, high quality care for your senior. We customize your in-home care services around the needs of your senior. Some may only need a few hours a week with housekeeping, transportation or personal care; while others may need around the clock care. We offer a wide variety of services to keep your loved one in the comfort of their home. With our qualified CAREGivers, your senior's needs will be met with top notch care.

Caregiver Burnout Prevention. When your senior loved one needs care, the first solution is to take on the caregiving yourself. The common problem with that is caregiver burnout. If your senior requires a high level of care, family members can become exhausted. Opting to use in-home care can allow the caregiver to break away from the everyday stresses, while providing them peace of mind while away. Caring for your senior is an act of love, time and resources. However, you must remember to take care of yourself as well. We are here to help ensure you and your loved one are cared for, in the long term.

In-home Services Provided. "Senior Care" simply means care that does not involve nursing-type activities such as wound changes. In-home senior care provides practical support with a human touch.
