For seniors who have decided to “age in place” there may come a time when they require some personal assistance. Even though they are in familiar surroundings their needs and personal capabilities may change. Among other issues, individuals who age at home may face a decrease in mobility, a lessening of muscle strength, impaired vision and hearing loss. When that time comes a Home Care Aide may be the right choice to offer some help. To ensure that seniors can continue living in their homes, Home Care Aides can provide a wide variety of help, including personal care, light housekeeping, meal preparation, transportation services and medication reminders. In addition, as seniors spend more and more time at home, caring and compassionate Home Care Aides offer valuable companionship.
