Grocery Shopping Help from a Home Care Aide in Traverse City, MI
Is a loved one struggling with transportation, errands, or mobility? A home care aide in Traverse City or the surrounding area can help
When an aging loved one starts to need help with daily tasks, family members are often the first to lend a hand. At Comfort Keepers of Traverse City, we’ve worked with families of all shapes and sizes and we know there’s nothing more important than the wellbeing of your loved one. Your family can access top quality senior care, and work with a home care aide who truly understands your family when you work with our local agency.
One of the first household tasks that a senior might need help with is usually transportation. Due to changes in physical health that can impact mobility, eyesight, balance, and more, driving a car frequently becomes a challenge for seniors. That lack of transportation creates even more problems: how will your loved one run their errands? How will they get to doctor’s appointments? How can they access the grocery store?
At Comfort Keepers, each home care aide is certified to provide safe and reliable transportation. Each aide goes through extensive background checks, professional reference checks, and will also interview with you and your family before they start. That way, your family can have the peace of mind of knowing that the aide assisting your loved one is a good match for them.
Does your loved one have a home care aide to provide access to healthy meals?
Transportation can be one of the most important things we provide because it’s a service that supports so many other aspects of health. Our home care aide will particularly focus on grocery shopping, and access to fresh food. Supporting good dietary health is one major way to support good holistic health. For seniors, grocery shopping can be made harder by mobility challenges too—after all, there’s nowhere to stop and rest between the aisles!
Grocery shopping is a need that can be met in several ways. A home care aide can help your loved one adjust their habits and find mobility support so that they can continue participating, and an aide can also work with your loved one to make a list and provide the service as a caregiver. A caregiver can help your loved one investigate recipes, purchase fresh ingredients, and maintain access to good food sources at home. Having professional in-home care means your loved one also has assistance following doctor’s recommendations for diet, rest, activity, medication schedules, and more.
