Do You Know What Support is Available to Your Dad?

Not every older adult needs help as they age, but the time may come. If your dad needs help now or you suspect he will in the future, what is available? Do you know what elder care services are out there?

You’re not alone if you think only those who are disabled, ill, or feeble qualify for elder care. The truth is that these services are designed to help senior citizens live independently.

 

Elder Care Offers Companionship

Elder Care Madison, FL: What Support is Available to Your Dad?

How many of your dad’s friends still live close by? If they’ve moved to a new state or country seeking a lower cost of living or to be closer to other family members, your dad could be lonely. If he’s calling you every day wanting to talk, he’s likely lonely. If he never leaves his home and is becoming reclusive, it can also be a sign of loneliness.

One of the most popular caregiver services is companionship. Caregivers are there to join your dad for as many hours as is desired. They can play games, watch movies, and chit-chat. You could have a caregiver stop by daily, weekly, or every other week.

 

Elder Care Helps with Household Chores

How clean is your dad’s home? Is he having a harder time getting his bathtub or toilet cleaned because he can’t get on his hands and knees? Does he struggle to carry a vacuum up and down the stairs? Is he keeping up with laundry?

Caregivers offer help with light cleaning and laundry. They can do the laundry, fold it, and put it away for your dad. Caregivers can run a vacuum, mop the floor, and dust furnishings. If there are chores your dad enjoys doing, you can specify that those chores do not get done by the caregivers.

 

Elder Care Helps with Reminders

If your dad often forgets to take his medications, caregivers can help. If he is good about scheduling appointments but forgets that he has that appointment, a caregiver can remind him and ensure he gets there on time by offering transportation.

 

Elder Care Ensures Your Dad Can Live Independently in His Own Home

Elder care services cover other important aspects of daily living like grooming, personal care, and meals. Caregivers can cook your dad’s meals, prepare snacks, and make sure he stays hydrated. They can help him get dressed, organize his mail, and field phone calls to weed out scams.

Are you ready to arrange elder care services for your dad? Once you have an idea of the services that are most helpful to him, call an elder care specialist. That person can go over things you may have forgotten and help you set up a schedule for caregiver visits.
