Finding the right in-home care for an elderly parent

By January 29, 2014LivHOME News

Many people are now finding themselves placed in a new role of caregiver for an aging parent or loved one. Naturally, you want to provide the very best living environment for your elderly parent, but there may come a time when you just can’t do it alone. If you want to make sure your parent can continue safely living at home, professional senior care may be the perfect answer for your family. So, how do you find the right professional in-home care for your elderly loved one?

When considering professional in-home care, the first vital question to ask is how much help does your loved-one need on a daily basis. Some of the most important areas to evaluate would be personal and household care. Household care includes things like cooking, cleaning and doing laundry. Personal care includes bathing, dressing, preparing meals and personal hygiene. For example, you would want to determine if your parent is able to safely bathe and dress without assistance. If they take medications on a daily basis, can they safely administer their own medicine? Do you need someone to help drive your parent to doctor’s appointments? Do you need someone to check on your parent early in the morning or late at night?
