When it comes to caring for the elderly loved ones in our lives, there’s a lot of responsibility involved and lots of details to consider. The obvious things immediately come to mind, like making sure they don’t fall, reminding them to take their medicine, taking them to doctor’s appointments, and making sure they’re eating both well and enough food. More serious tasks might include helping them with daily activities like bathing, getting dressed, and using the bathroom.
But even the most dedicated caretakers can struggle to balance their personal and professional lives with taking care of their loved ones, which ultimately often becomes a full-time job of its own.
So while we could sit here and list safety tips for caring for seniors, ultimately we’re going to remind you of the one tip that covers it all: families need professionals like Senior Helpers.
At Senior Helpers, our goal is clear and simple: we want to make a difference in the lives of our clients and their families, and provide a service and relief that often can be hard to find. In the ever-growing landscape of in-home senior care, though, it’s important that families have a company that is flexible, reliable and fits the broad needs of its clients. In short, that’s us.
As an in-home senior care franchise, we’re dedicated to ensuring that not only are a senior’s needs met but also that they’re comfortable and happy with their caregiver. That’s why we do a test run before beginning services: so that the seniors receiving care can meet their new caregiver and get to know them before a stranger comes knocking at the door to help them.
And if for whatever reason a client doesn’t like a caregiver or changes their mind, we’re going to do everything in our power to provide a replacement as soon as possible and ensure that our clients are receiving the care they need in the interim. It’s just part of making the seniors in need of care happy and comfortable, and a big part of what helps us stand out.
We also provide several different types of care that cover the needs of our clients, including everything from simply having a visitor, to cooking meals, to helping with daily tasks we take for granted – like showering, using the bathroom, and getting dressed.
Senior Gems is a program designed to train caregivers to identify, recognize, and form specific treatment plans for each client’s individual needs, which typically are unique to themselves alone.
It’s more affordable than you think, with lots of resources for families to pay for the care they need. For more on that, check out this blog we wrote on the topic.
