For many people, it’s difficult to accept the fact that they need help. Young or old, people enjoy and want their independence. When a loved one needs in-home care, but they don’t want it or believe they need it, getting help for them is difficult, if not impossible. Often, care comes too late or at a point of decline that could have been delayed had the right resources been in place.
At Home Helpers, we understand this and have a plan to help smooth the transition. Our flexible and affordable Friendly Visit Program features a gradual approach to in-home care that often begins with supplemental help around the house, such as light housekeeping, running errands or basic companionship. Using this initial approach often breaks the barrier of a client’s fear and anxiety regarding “some stranger coming into their home.” Our clients then have more input regarding their care, resulting in a care plan that is appropriate, affordable and better accepted.
