Some say the luckiest people are those who live long lives. This may be especially true when an aging person gets to live in their home for as long as they like. A time may come, however, when even the most independent senior slows down and needs non-medical assistance. If you're the adult child of an aging senior, now is the time to talk about private caregivers and home care agencies. If you have siblings, invite them into the conversation.
Home care consists of providing personal care, assistance with housekeeping tasks, and companionship. These are precisely the sort of services that Comfort Keepers provides.
Home Care Agency or Private Caregiver?
If someone you care about requires non-medical assistance on a regular basis, home care services can keep them at home and out of a residential care facility. But should you choose a Rochelle Park home care agency or a private caregiver?
The first thing to consider is whether you or any siblings have the temperament to hire, manage, and possibly terminate the employment of another person. Some people aren't designed to work in human resources, and the same goes for becoming a home caregiver. If the thought of doing interviews with complete strangers makes you uncomfortable, your best bet is to choose a home care organization rather than a private caregiver.
There are many other benefits to choosing a home care agency in Rochelle Park, including:
24/7 care is always available
Agency handles advertising and interviews
Agency handles hiring and payroll
Caregivers are bonded and insured
If a caregiver is sick or unavailable, a replacement will be sent
We have nothing against private home caregivers. In fact, we admire them very much. But when it comes down to convenience and peace of mind for a senior's family, a home care agency that's as dedicated to senior well-being as Comfort Keepers is definitely the way to go.
Comfort Keepers Is Not Your Ordinary Home Care Agency
Of course, Comfort Keepers of Rochelle Park provides all the personal and household assistance other home care agencies may offer, but our hand-selected, compassionate caregivers go a friendly step further by providing companionship that is present and engaging. Empathy, camaraderie, and uplifting the human spirit are what we're all about.
Comfort Keepers has an excellent track record of our in-home caregivers becoming lifelong friends with the seniors they assist. To Comfort Keepers, your special senior is not a list of tasks to be ticked off. Your loved one is someone with an interesting history and fascinating stories to tell.
