Warning Signs That Your Loved One May Need In Home Care

Warning Signs That Your Loved One May Need In Home Care

senior in home care serviceChoosing the proper senior in home care services for your parents or grandparents may be one of the most difficult decisions you have to make. Even though it can be difficult for your family to watch elderly loved ones age and decline, it is important not to turn a blind eye to these changes. Here are some signs that may be time for your relative to have in home care.

Letting things go around the house
Some signs — such as leaving the oven on, letting dirty laundry or trash pile up, or not emptying the cat’s litter — may seem small. But added together, this kind of negligence or forgetfulness can be an indication that help is necessary. Not only that, but even one neglected chore can cause a dangerous accident, like a fire breaking out on the stove, a leaky pipe bursting, or a slip or fall that results in a broken hip.

Ignoring personal care
Does your parent or grandparent seem disheveled all the time? Does it look as if they haven’t bathed or washed their hair lately? Are they wearing the same clothes day after day, or do you often see them dressed in dirty clothing? These are all signs they may require daily senior in home care services.

Changes in eating habits
Your loved one may not be eating because they are struggling with grocery shopping or meal preparation, or they may be eating poorly because they rely on junk food and candy to fill them up. Look around the kitchen; is it adequately stocked? Do you find old food spoiling in the fridge or an empty pantry? Are your parents losing weight because they don’t remember to eat, or gaining weight because they don’t have adequately nutritious meals?

Overall cognitive decline
If you notice that your loved one is having trouble making decisions, difficulty following directions, and/or increased confusion, then it may be time to hire a caregiver who can offer 24 hour home care.

While every person is different, these are some signs to be on the lookout for as your loved ones get older. If you are noticing these indicators, a senior in home care service can be a beneficial solution. An in home service allows your elderly relative to stay comfortable in their own home, which is a huge benefit for their welfare and overall well-being. A full 82% of seniors report preferring to stay in their own homes as they age.

I like working for 24hr home care because they allow me to have a flexible schedule and I can take advantage of how far away from home I'd like to travel for work.

Pros: It’s nice working here. With this agency, you have a very flexible schedule. There are a lot of 4-5 hour shifts, although they do offer overnight shifts as well from 8 hours, maybe 12. You can qualify for employee benefits after 1 year of working here. They have “emergency rate” wages as well, these are last minute shifts that can raise from $1-5 an hour; if they hired you at $14hr and they give you an (e-rate) emergency rate then it’ll probably be from $15, $16, $17+ depending on the case. Traveling is required and they did have a virtual interview with me. They have employees working 24 hours if you decide to call them. They use the CC-Go app to clock in and clock out. They also give you a link to a corporate perks website that will give you discounts on phones, plane tickets, hotels ect. Cons: Communication with the office/managers can be difficult at times because when you call, anyone/random person can answer. My personal recommendation as a company request for employee(s): Sending each caregiver a “care package” in a ziplock bag with gloves, masks, hand sanitizer, ect. in case a facility or client doesn’t have the supplies needed. Having these “care packages” would help the company prevent any further sicknesses when dealing with urination and bowel movements if anything were to happen.
