Home Care Services
In-home care is a great way to get the help you need. You may be a senior who needs assistance with daily living activities, so trust our caregivers to help with meal preparation or personal care. You may also be caring for your aging parent and just need someone to be with them while you run errands. Home care services are versatile, flexible, and customized for your comfort, peace of mind and well-being.
Caregiving is not easy for anyone. If you don’t live near your aging parent, you may wonder if what you’re doing is enough to oversee your loved one’s care. Even if you live nearby, you may discover the problems you or your loved one are facing are becoming larger and more complex than you can comfortably manage. Or maybe your life’s other responsibilities have grown to the point you are unable to provide the level of supervision and attention to your loved one’s care that you wish.
We’re here to help. While we don’t deliver medical care, we can oversee your loved one’s care through our care management services. We will keep you and your family members—whether living nearby or far away—informed, involved and confident that your loved one is enjoying a healthy, safe and independent lifestyle.
Our care managers act as your senior parent’s “coach,” helping to ensure they follow doctor’s orders, which isn’t as easy as it sounds, especially if a senior has memory difficulties or problems reading fine print. Our care managers can assist your aging parent with:
- Transportation and scheduling of doctors’ appointments
- Attending doctors’ appointments and facilitating communication between doctor, senior and family members, if appropriate.
- Monitoring client’s adherence to instructions, including reminders to take medications and exercise as directed by a physician
- Special dietary needs for conditions like diabetes, hypertension or heart disease can be managed through strict shopping guidelines and proper food preparation by our skilled CARE team.
If you’re caring for a senior parent, you may feel frazzled as you juggle caregiving duties with work, parenting and managing your own household. If you’re like a nearly a third of American adults, you spend an average of 20 hours per week caring for a chronically ill, disabled or aged family member. As your parent grows older, caregiving can quickly turn into a full-time duty requiring 40 or more hours per week.
Under even the best of circumstances, caregiving can disrupt your usual work and social life, sleep habits, exercise routine, household duties and finances. Eventually it can take a toll on your physical and emotional health. After all, you can’t be on-call 24/7. And you still want to preserve the relationship with your parents as a family member, not purely a caregiver.
Respite for Family Caregivers
While caring for your aging parent is a labor of love, it is still labor. As you spend more and more of your time caring for your senior parent, you may find yourself giving up favorite hobbies and vacations, saying no to friends, feeling distracted at work and getting more stressed with your spouse and children. Over time, juggling caregiving with work, raising children and managing a household increases your risk for depression, chronic illness and a decline in your overall quality of life.
Despite these risks, you may neglect good health habits if you’re like many caregivers. You may skimp on sleep, eat poorly, skip regular exercise, keep going even when you’re ill or postpone your own medical appointments. If you’re a caregiver who neglects your own health, you’re more likely to suffer from a chronic condition such as high cholesterol or high blood pressure and be overweight. Caregiving can also take a toll on your mental health, with an estimated 46 percent to 59 percent of caregivers suffering from clinical depression.
It’s time to pause and ask yourself: “What good will I be to the person I care for if I become ill?” As a caregiver, it is critical for you to take good care of yourself—even while you are taking care of your aging loved one.
It is possible to take some much-needed time for yourself while meeting the needs of your senior parent through SYNERGY HomeCare’s respite care services.
