Finding Support While You Age in Place

Nearly 90% of seniors want to stay in their home as they age, but complex medical events, smaller changes in mobility or a diagnosis of dementia can make that challenging. It’s common to need extra help with personal care, meal preparation, transportation and other important tasks. In most cases, the first people you’ll turn to are family members, but even the most well-intentioned spouse or adult child might not be physically or mentally prepared to meet all your needs alone.

Professional home care changes the picture for many seniors by ensuring they have the support they need to safely and comfortably age in place. Highly trained in home aides work with you, one-on-one, to provide assistance with daily care needs and support and encouragement as you continue to work to maintain your independence. The Salus Homecare team collaborates with you to create an effective plan of care, and then we schedule services so that they’re never disruptive to your daily routines or schedule. This results in a more enjoyable home care experience and improved outcomes for you or the senior you love.

Home care services provide support with personal care, transportation, meal preparation and other daily needs. Care is provided by a professional in home aide. Home care services are typically private pay. However, some long term care plans will assist in covering the cost.

Yes. Indications that home care might be beneficial include recognizing an unsteady gait as your loved one walks, noticing that their house is constantly untidy or they seldom change their clothes, weight loss or declines in attending to personal hygiene, or having a loved one who is homebound and lacking opportunities for socialization. If you do notice these signs, Salus Homecare can assist with a complimentary, no obligation evaluation in your loved one’s home. Seniors sometimes are resistant to care because they think accepting it means they are giving up their independence. If your loved one is expressing resistance, it’s important to talk to them about their concerns and the benefits of in home care. Include them in the process of finding a caregiver, and give them opportunities to help develop their care plan. Offering consistent care can also help them to be more accepting, as developing a relationship with their caregiver helps the senior to form new connections and maintain a sense of worth.
