#1: Independence: Seniors are passionate about maintaining their freedom. Aging at home allows folks to keep their independence, in privacy and with dignity. Living at home, surrounded by the people and things they cherish most in life is also better for health and general wellbeing.
#2: Safety: Having a safe home environment is important for anyone at any age, but it's particularly vital for seniors. People become more vulnerable and susceptible to falls, accidents, and medical mishaps as they grow older. As a trained professional home health aide, you get to see potential hazards around the home before or as they materialize. These could be certain behaviors or physical things that have the possibility to cause harm or injury. Once identified, you rectify the situation, thus helping to maintain safety in the home at all times.
#3: Activity (physical and mental). Comfort Keepers has a special 'Interactive Caregiving' approach. It's a program that encourages seniors to move muscles and exercise their minds. You can make a real difference in the lives of those who partake in selected caregiving tasks and various fun activities. Both continual physical and mental stimulation has huge benefits for the client.
#4: Companionship. Extreme loneliness or depression or both can materialize with continual isolation. A home health aide and general support caregiver offers more than just help with daily chores and a little personal care. Friendship and regular companionship can play a crucial role in both the physical and mental wellbeing of the care recipient. Driving seniors to visit friends and encouraging them to join various organizations and events can also be of huge benefit. Genuine companionship really does make a difference in the lives of those you care for.
#5: Peace of mind. Having real peace of mind is priceless. Through you, the senior can reside in a safer environment and live a happier, more independent life at home. It not only relaxes the client, but also their close family members. These are people who may otherwise be worried and anxious if it were not for your valuable expertise and caring contribution.
