You call your loved one every day … you shop for him or her … you take care of repairs … you drive them to the doctor and help with paperwork. You’d like to do more, but you’ve got your job and your own family to think about, too. Hiring a homemaker may be the answer.
Homemakers make a difference by providing assistance, friendship and socialization to adults who may have difficulty with daily living tasks, such as shopping or paying bills. We help these adults remain independent in their homes instead of having to more costly institutional care. Homemakers may sometimes give family members much needed time off from their duties, run errands, and often provide friendship for their clients.
Homemakers typically work with elderly clients who need assistance with tasks such as grocery shopping, picking up their prescriptions at the local pharmacy, help with preparing meals and housekeeping. They will spend time socializing, enjoying a cup of coffee with the patient, going on a walk with the patient, engaging in conversations with the patient, accompanying the patient to appointments, etc.
Safety is the biggest concern and one of the biggest factors in determining if a loved one can remain in their home. A PCAcould be the answer.
