At Preferred Assisted Living and Respite Care we understand that deciding how much care your loved one needs is a hard decision to make. We can help you in making this decision by doing an in-home assessment to decide if in-home care would be the best solution.
- Does your mom need 24 hour supervision, or does she really just need some help at home?
- Would you like to be able to go to your dad’s to just visit, and not have to deal with making sure he has groceries, that his laundry is done, there’s clean sheets on his bed, or that his medication are being taken properly?
- Does your mom manage most daily activities just fine, but your afraid she’s lonely and with a job and a family of your own, you simply can’t be there enough.
- Are you missing work to get your parents to their doctor’s appointments?
All these issues can cause extreme amounts of stress for you, the caregiver, and if you answered yes to even one of these questions, you are feeling some of that stress.
If your loved one isn’t quite ready to leave their home and doesn’t really need the supervision of a 24 hour caregiver, you might consider our non-medical home care.
