Preparing a Loved One for Home Care

If you’ve made the decision to keep a loved one in his or her home, you are probably aware of the many benefits of this path, such as the ability of your loved one to remain in a comfortable setting, surrounded by items and memories that are meaningful and familiar. But that doesn’t mean the path is always easy. For example, some people have a difficult time letting go of tasks that they once delighted in (even chores such as washing the dishes). However, when it becomes clear that life at home is becoming too much for your loved one to handle, home care may be the best option.

How do you prepare a loved one for home care? While a certain amount of transition time is to be expected, there are a few things you can do to make this journey a smooth one, including openly discussing the tasks with which your loved one will be getting assistance, thanks to the help of home health aides.  However, one of the best ways to ensure that a loved one has a healthy, happy transition to the home care phase is to choose a reputable agency that can effectively meet his or her needs.

Are you searching for Minnesota senior care? Baywood Home Care can help. Our goal is to enable seniors to live where, and how, they want to live. Our senior home care services provide freedom—not constraint. Yet even with our commitment to honoring the independence of your loved one, we are aware that the transition to home care isn’t always easy. That’s why we provide the highest level of service. For example, we offer flexible senior care management with hourly assistance, 24-hour care, and overnight care. We also offer a wide range of services, from preparing meals and running errands to monitoring blood pressure and blood sugar.

However, one of the biggest ways that we make a difference in the lives our clients is by matching them with highly experienced home health aides. In fact, our caregivers all have previous home care, as well as nursing home or hospital experience.  They are genuinely nice people who communicate and listen well. They care about their clients, and clients that have previously used other agencies tell us that the consistency provided by Baywood is FAR superior to that provided by other companies. And when your loved one is going through a major life transition, this consistency makes all the difference.
