"My mother just needs a little help at home," the caller says. The conversation continues as the caller explains that her mother does not want to leave her home but needs help with everyday tasks. Perhaps her mother has fallen recently or has just come home from the hospital. How do you know when it is time to find a home heath caregiver or companion to provide some personal assistance, or a "little help" for your loved one?

 

Safety is a constant concern and is a major factor in determining if a loved one can remain at home. Falls, mismanagement of medications, and memory deficits play important roles in home safety.

After a fall, senior adults may experience a decline in their health and become fearful that they will fall again. The fear of falling may cause senior adults to become less mobile which leads to decreasing strength and endurance.

Managing multiple medications is often confusing. Taking the correct medication and dosage at the right time or discontinuing one medication to start another creates the perfect storm. Mismanagement of medication is often the reason for a hospitalization.

Short term memory loss or dementia may rob a loved one of his or her independence. When memory loss occurs, a caregiver can provide personal assistance so that a senior adult can remain safe at home. C&S Healthcare Services' competent, caring home care assistants will provide that "little help".

Companions are available to provide services for clients who do not require the skills of a nurse or caregiver.

 

What if my loved one requires a higher level of care at home?
