For many aging adults, the thought of living in an assisted living facility is not their first option or an ideal plan, rather it’s staying where they have lived for years. There are many benefits to this, but it does involve some diligence to keeping your family member or loved one comfortable and with all the attention they need to live well. Sometimes the mind isn’t as sharp as it once was, but their body is fully functioning and they don’t need the medical attention. In this instance, it may be helpful to have non medical home care in their home.
Mentally, independent living helps seniors with maintaining a sense of self and well-being. While seniors may not be able to cook and clean for themselves, they still feel a sense of worth by helping and contributing instead of being served hand and foot. Having an independent living aide come into the home and help with the activities that are participatory and mentally stimulating. Having a personal care assistant for your family member or loved one can mean a better quality of living. Help support your senior adult’s independent living and contact Lares Home Care to help with the day to day home care items.
