Come Together to Decide on Elderly Care for Loved Ones

When a member of your family reaches an age or stage in their life where they are unable to care for themselves, decisions can become difficult. How will you find elderly care suitable to provide all the needs your loved one is going to require? Are you able to afford an in-home care attendant? These are difficult decisions with huge impacts on your future, and the future of your parent, grandparent or family member whose care is now in your hands.

Make Decisions Together

These decisions are never easy, and communication with other family members is very important. Collect as much information as you can, then gather your family to discuss information about possible services. This meeting allows all family members to ask questions and communicate their preferences about services; everyone should also be informed about the expenses so that they can be open about financial commitments for the future care of a loved one.

Talk to others who have found themselves in this same situation. Check the reviews of local elderly care centers to assure that your loved one will receive top quality care. Talk with your family, your friends and representatives from care facilities.

Once you have decided on your loved ones’ needs and found the provider who will help you care for them, your life will feel much easier. Knowing they are receiving the best possible attention, and are safe while you are away, will allow you to continue your normal routine without stress. You will no longer worry if they are safe, hungry or have taken their required medication.

Answers and Help Are Available

Neighborly Home Care has over 25 collective years of experience in elderly care. We will help you customize a care plan for in home care services. A caregiver will be assigned to your family based on your needs, through an interview process between you, your loved one and the caregiver.

How We Can Help You

As family members age they are at risk for serious diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s or dementia. They are also at a higher risk of a stroke or other condition that may leave them physically unable to care for themselves. It is still possible for them to remain at home or with family who loves them. In-home services can be provided so they can continue to live a quality life. Neighborly Home Care will:

  • Provide transportation to run errands, pick up prescriptions, or go to medical appointments.
  • Ensure that medications are taken in the correct amount and at the correct time.
  • Offer assistance with personal hygiene, daily dressing and other activities.
  • Provide companionship during those times you or other family members are away from home.

Life is busy and Neighborly Home Care understands how families do not always have the time to provide full-time elderly care for their aging family members. Neighborly Home Care is there for you to prepare meals, drive your loved one to appointments or gatherings, monitor medications, and to simply be a companion while you are away. We are here for you and your family 24 hours a day.

I just wanted to tell you how grateful we are that Neighborly Home Care stepped in & took over taking care of my Dad when we really needed it, no questions asked. Our caregiver has become part of the family and we know we can depend on her being there every day & taking great care of my Dad. He misses her when she’s not there!
