In-Home Care for Your Loved One
Many elderly parents in Fort Smith, AR, these days may be prideful and unable to admit that they can no longer live safely and comfortably all by themselves. They refuse to move into the homes of their anxious children, nor are they willing to go to a nursing home. Instead, they insist on staying in their own house. And that’s why so many families need home care services.
With our friendly and highly trained caregivers from Home Helpers of Fort Smith, senior family members can still live in their homes without causing the rest of their family any grave concern for their safety and comfort. Worried children are relieved to know that caregivers are there to remind their sometimes forgetful elderly parents to eat right or to take their medications on time. They may need help with various household chores, including taking out the trash, dealing with the laundry and the dishes, and keeping the place neat. In other cases, perhaps the only assistance they need is for travel, when they have to have someone with them to get to the park to enjoy a nice walk, or to more urgent appointments such as to the doctor’s office. For these types of assistance, you can rely on our responsible caregivers to lend a hand when such help is required.

But that doesn’t mean that our caregivers are untrained in basic medical care. In fact, they undergo regular training for CPR and first aid, so they can provide immediate care while the emergency medical services are on their way.

It’s our responsibility to make sure that our caregivers develop these rigorous capabilities, and we take our responsibilities seriously.
