Home care services are a good solution to providing care and support to older people who want to stay independent in their own home but who need help around the house and who may also need assistance with daily activities such as bathing, dressing and meal preparation. Depending on the needs of the older person, more specialised care at home is possible as well from a home care service provider, including care for dementia and Alzheimer’s and mobility issues. A good way to assess if home care is the right option is to speak to a home care company – arrange for an in-home visit with them, have them answer your questions and put together a customised care plan for your loved one.
