There are a significant number of seniors who refuse to move out of the home that they know and love, even though they may no longer being to care for themselves or for their home like they once did. For their loved ones, this can cause a great deal of worry and stress. However, moving a reluctant senior into a nursing home or assisted living facility could cause them mental anguish or even worsen medical conditions. Some patients have even reported feelings of depression. If you are concerned that your senior loved one won’t make the transition into a facility well, it may be time to consider allowing them to continue independent living and age in place. Our New Jersey team can help your family find the right solution.
What is “Aging in Place”?
“Aging in place” is a term used to describe allowing a senior to continue independently living in their own home. Aging in place is only possible if concerns about their well-being are addressed. That might include their ability to cook meals for themselves, keep up with household chores, or remembering to take their medications. That’s where our team can help.
Why Home Health Care Could be the Answer You Need
When you have a senior who wishes to age in place but you are concerned about their safety, wellbeing, and ability to care for themselves, it can become a heartbreaking conflict for a family. However, home health care could be the perfect compromise. Your loved one will be able to stay in their home while getting the assistance they need from one of our caregivers.
