The most common phrase heard from older people is, “I want to stay in my own home”. Many older people have lived in their home for decades, if not their entire lives, and the thought of having to move out just to get needed help can be very distressing.
So, how can we develop a plan so that you can remain at home, yet also have the support and companionship that so many older people need?
What Support Can Help Me Stay at Home?
There are many different types of help available to come to your home and assist with Activities of Daily Living, such as: meal prep, light housekeeping, bathing, dressing and reminders for different tasks needing done. Many people use services from Home Care Agencies, such as Loving Kindness Healthcare Systems, to staff these homes with caregivers who can help to accomplish all of these daily tasks. Not only do the caregivers assist with all the duties of each day, they provide companionship to older people, many of which live alone and look forward to the relationships they develop with their caregivers.
How Much Will It Cost to Get Help at Home?
The local Area Agency on Aging has specific departments dedicated to be a resource and assist older people to get set up with services such as: Home Care, Ride Services, Housing and Cash Assistance if needed. Certain programs are fee for services, and others have eligibility requirements where services can be provided at a decreased cost, or even free of charge at times.
