One of the hardest realizations you may have in life is recognizing the fact that your mother, father or both are unable to care for themselves. One of the toughest choices you may make is trying to decide who is going to provide the care they may need. This decision is crucial, as the levels of care can span from something as easy as assistance with grocery shopping to responsibilities as personal as helping someone bathe. Even if you are able to provide some help for your parents, you may find you cannot do it alone.

It is important to understand the dynamics in this situation. You may realize your loved one needs help, but many seniors are unwilling to recognize this fact. Some even have a tendency to refuse assistance. However, most seniors also have a fierce desire to remain living independently in their own homes for as long as possible. Caring Springs Senior Care can help make this possible by offering services tailored to meet each client's needs in order to foster that independence.

We are familiar with the obstacles that can make the decision of who cares for your loved ones complicated and even a bit difficult for all concerned. Conversations may become emotional, but they are essential when living alone becomes a danger for the senior. Once you cross the threshold and begin the selection process in earnest, there are several key points for evaluating home health care agencies you should know and discuss with your loved one.

Generally, two types of care in the home are available: home health care services and in-home care services. If your loved one requires regular assistance with health care needs, Caring Springs Senir Care should be the best choice for you. We can provide a range of medical services, such as medication assistance, nursing services, physical therapy and medical social services to coordinate care.

If your loved one needs help with daily activities and personal care, such as household chores, meal preparation or bathing, or is just in need of companionship, you likely are seeking in-home care services, rather than home health care. In-home care helps with everyday activities. The costs for these services and the eligibility requirements vary.

At Caring Springs Senior Care, we have experienced caregivers ready to help. Whether your loved one needs a little help for a few hours or needs 24-hours care, we have you covered. Contact our care coordinator on 913-401-5322 today!
