Take Time to Talk about Home Care with Your Elderly Mother

Home Care in Hilshire Village, TX

Home Care in Hilshire Village, TXYou might not have a great deal of time throughout the day. You may be an incredibly busy person, a business executive who has tremendous responsibilities, deadlines, and other things that need to get done. That’s fine, but if you notice your aging mother is having difficulty doing certain things around her house, if she is calling you, a sibling, or somebody else to get assistance with these things, it’s a small cry for help. It also points to the prospect of home care.

Some people may have a tendency to ignore the topic of home care because they don’t know how their family member is going to respond to it. They may have some inclination to believe that an elderly individual would be adamantly against any type of professional home care, simply because they may have mentioned it in the past and wanted nothing to do with it. They may also not fully understand the challenges a senior is having within their own home environment.

To a younger, healthy adult who has all of his or her physical capabilities, is strong enough and has good balance, the simple notion of being uncomfortable walking up and down stairs may not seem like a practical thing to worry about.

If your elderly mother has expressed any concerns about safety within the comfort of her home, it is absolutely essential to make some time to talk about various home care options. An in-home care provider could be hired to work with her for just a couple of hours a day for one or two days a week. They can also be hired to support her throughout the day, from the time she wakes up until the time she goes to sleep at night. They can be hired for seven days a week, if that’s what’s necessary.

Seniors may not ask for help, but they can certainly put out signs they are having difficulty with certain things. Just because life is so busy at the moment, that shouldn’t deter you or anyone else from sitting down and discussing the prospect of home care with your aging mother.

The last thing anyone wants is for something bad to happen, but without the right level of support at the right time, your mother could end up taking a bad step, losing her balance, falling down and being injured. Falls are the number one cause of accidental death among seniors at home. With home care, that doesn’t have to be the case for your aging mother.

For most of us, the word "home" evokes warm feelings of comfort, security and well-being. For older adults, home also means holding tight to cherished memories and maintaining self-esteem and independence. When illness, injury or age make life a little more challenging, remaining at home in a comfortable, familiar environment encourages recovery and enhances the quality of life. Home can be defined as a private residence, an independent or assisted living facility or even a short term stay in the hospital, we recognize the additional benefits provided by a personal, professional assistant.
