Home care aide provides seniors with a valuable service and if you asked your aging parent where they would like to spend their golden years, the answer is likely at home. It’s a fact that most senior citizens prefer aging in the comfort of their own homes, which is why Comfort Keepers of Calgary, AB is dedicated to providing home care services for your senior loved ones who are still living independently in their own homes.
As your loved one continues to age, their bodies and abilities change. They can become weaker and more susceptible to injuries from common activities like picking up objects, trying to clean areas of the home that are hard to reach or going down the stairs. Instead of waiting for an accident to happen, a Comfort Keepers home care aide can be there to provide support for light housekeeping, like vacuuming, mopping dusting, doing dishes and laundry.
A home care aide can also run errands with your senior loved one in the Calgary area if he or she is no longer able to drive.
Depression and anxiety often come as results of the inability to care for oneself or their home. Seniors who suffer from depression usually eat less and get less physically active. They also get socially withdrawn, which can have a bad impact on their mental health, accelerating conditions like Alzheimer’s’ and dementia. If you notice mom or dad’s home is messy, disorganized or accumulating dust or trash, it may be time to seek professional elderly care assistance.
If your aging loved one is living alone, they might be having a tough time to take a proper care of their home. In turn, their house can get messy, which can make them feel sad and disappointed. Comfort Keepers of Calgary, AB can help prevent that from happening. Our caregivers will come to your loved one’s home and take care of all light housekeeping duties necessary to keep their living space nice and neat.
