You may be wondering when the right time is to provide your senior loved one with personal care assistants.

They can be simple at first, like taking longer than usual to get dressed, some of the most common are:
- Forgetting to take medication, or becoming confused about dosage

- Not having the energy, they used to have and getting out of bed later
- Not participating in activities, they once loved and enjoyed

Activities with Home Care

Protecting Your Elderly Loved One from Falls
Physical exercise and activities will help with keeping their muscle tone, flexibility, and balance in check, so they have a reduced risk of injury from falls in the home. Injuries from falls can result in a long recovery time that will prove challenging for maintaining an independent lifestyle. We want to make sure we can help get rid of that risk.
Most importantly, physical activity will keep your loved one’s immune system healthy, so they spend less time sick and more time happy and well. This provides a much better quality of life for your seniors and helps them maintain independence.
