Senior Care is a Family Issue – Charlotte, NC Senior Home Care Solutions

Comfort Keepers knows that choosing the ideal senior home care solutions for loved ones necessitates a family effort

Around 80% of senior citizens in the United States want to age in place in their own homes. Seniors are particularly susceptible at this time of life, as they may be losing cognitive ability or developing physical limitations. As a result, seniors, now more than ever, require the help of their friends and family. Here in Charlotte, NC we’re helping families understand how they can work together to choose the best senior home care solutions. Call Comfort Keepers at (704) 980-7620.

Communication is key

Because seniors typically have trouble communicating their needs, having a family member advocate for them is critical. As an advocate, you should be part in the decision-making process to determine whether your loved one can get care at home or whether they need to transfer into a nursing home or assisted living facility in Charlotte.

By talking directly with your loved one's caregiver, you can ensure that their care needs are addressed. Even if they are unable to offer care, the rest of the family can aid by assisting with home maintenance and managing finances, bills, and medical claims. Frequent visits will also make a significant difference in the life of your elderly loved one.

Considerations

  • When is my family going to start talking about senior home care solutions?
  • How much and what kind of assistance does my loved one require in the home?
  • What is the best care option for my elderly parent?
  • How will the care of my loved one be paid for?
  • Is there a family member in Charlotte, NC and the surrounding area who is close and willing to help?
  • The personality and temperament of your loved one are also factors to consider. Are they outgoing or do they prefer to be alone? This will aid in the selection of a suitable caregiver as well as the most appropriate care schedule. Take into account your parents' previous living situations. Those who have accumulated a large home through time will find it difficult to adjust to a smaller living space.
