We’ll Get Your Loved One to Family Events

By Patti Soisson

While Home Helpers of Bucks County specializes in helping your loved one feel at home, that doesn’t mean our services are confined to residential spaces. Because living a happy life also means getting out of the house to connect with family and friends, we’d love to accompany your loved one to various family functions. Our focus is on both in-home care and out-of-the-home satisfaction. Our caregivers do everything they can to keep senior citizens happy, active and feeling as independent as possible.

 

Complete Assistance

 From family picnics, family reunions and graduations to various other family functions, our caregivers would be more than happy to join your elderly loved one. They’ll have the same level of professional attention provided by their caregiver as they would in the comfort of their own home. Even better is the fact that our caregivers go the extra mile to make sure clients have everything they need while they’re out and about so they remain as comfortable as possible and always look forward to spending time with family rather than feel stressed about forgetting something. We take care of all the heavy lifting so our patients can concentrate on enjoying themselves and nothing else.

 

Senior Citizens Have Everything They Need

Just like you make sure you have your keys, phone and wallet before leaving your home, senior citizens need a few more things. For instance, your loved one might need a list of medical information that includes the names of any medications she or he is currently taking as well as the actual medications. Depending on health conditions, senior citizens might also need a blood sugar meter, blood pressure monitor or an automatic external defibrillator, also known as an AED. It’s also a good idea to bring a basic first aid kit for emergencies and the contact information of a primary care provider.  

 

The Importance of Spending Time With Friends and Family

Not only do we like to accompany our clients to their family events, we also like to stress the importance of attending such functions. It’s common for us to experience increasing loneliness as we age, making it essential to build and maintain relationships with family and friends. While senior care can go a long way, it’s no substitute for being surrounded by loved ones and the mental benefits doing so can provide.

 

If you’d like to learn more about the out-of-home care services we provide, feel free to reach out to us. We’ll ensure our clients always make an appearance at the next family function.
