Do you really know everything that is going on with your loved one? As a leading provider of Providence in home care we know that sometimes that’s not the case. One-sixth of people over the age of 65 have been hiding a serious illness or injury, suggests a survey conducted by Centra, a care and support provider in the UK. The survey included data retrieved from 2,000 people between the ages of 65 and 93.
Worry that an elderly loved one who lives alone is covering up an injury or illness is not uncommon. Many individuals have the same concerns, but their family member or close friend is unwilling to come clean. Sometimes the problem may be that a spouse, who is caring for an ailing husband or wife, is not in prime condition themselves and requires additional support they are not willing to ask for.
More Comfortable with a Professional
Providence in home care is an excellent way to aid a senior that needs help in a wide variety of areas. Often the biggest concern someone has is being a burden or worry to their children. Hiring a CNA from MAS Home Care often alleviates this anxiety since he or she recognizes that it is the professional caregiver’s job and they are trained to do exactly what they have entered the home for. Home care can also prevent unnecessary hospitalizations and will also help the ill or disabled client to retain as much independence as possible. What a relief to know your loved one is in good hands.
