Getting the Most Out of an Assisted Home Care Service

Not everyone wants to enter a care facility to get support during their senior years; for many people, residing in their homes is the best thing for them. But if you need a little extra help, an assisted home care service can be the best compromise and help you live your life as independently as possible.

As we get older, it becomes more likely that we will need help around the home and to help carry out day-to-day functions.

Are you struggling to do tasks you once carried out with ease? Or have you experienced medical issues requiring extra support due to illness or limited ability?

But what if you don’t want a stranger coming into your home? Would you prefer to get support from someone like-minded and closer to your age? Senior to senior assisted home care services are an excellent match for those wishing for more of a companion-type relationship than a caregiving role. 


What Is An Assisted Home Care Service?

An assisted home care service for seniors involves a caregiver visiting you in your home to help with predetermined duties as required.

At Seniors for Seniors, we work carefully to partner with seniors who closely match your personality and lifestyle to offer you the most support possible when you need it.

Our exceptional assisted home care service allows seniors to feel more relaxed in their homes, knowing all of the jobs are taken care of by a compatible person who can offer more than simply complete a task.


How To Get The Most From Your Assisted Home Care Service

When you first realize you need help or are looking for help for a loved one, it can be an overwhelming time. Knowing what the service is and how to get the most from it can help you to ensure you are receiving the care and support you need in the best way possible.


Be Honest

In the first instance, you need to be honest about what you require from a home care service and why you need it. Be as simple as possible about who you are, your lifestyle, and everything in between. This will allow us to make a better match and provide the best support possible. There is no shame in admitting you need a little bit of help; far from being an issue, it can be a great source of comfort and relief.

Do you need a few hours of companionship a week? Or are your medical concerns requiring round-the-clock or overnight care? Whatever your requirements, we can work to accommodate you as much as possible as long as we know what you need.


What Do You Need Help With

Our carers provide many different services, so you must be clear about what you require help with and the type of service you expect.

Providing you with a compatible senior means getting that friendly one-on-one support to make your life easier, so if we know beforehand what is to be expected and when we can provide a more fulfilling service that better meets your needs.

Our seniors can perform tasks such as; light housekeeping, minor DIY jobs (changing light bulbs, etc.), companionship, pet care services, shopping, cooking, personal care, light gardening duties, and more.


Be Open To Help

We understand that relinquishing control can be a tough pill to swallow for some people. Still, if you are struggling, our assisted home care service is an affordable way to remain living in your home and retain your current lifestyle in a way that benefits you mentally and physically. Our seniors work hard to ensure they offer the best service possible at all times. The reality is if you resist their help and are reluctant to engage with them, they can not perform their roles to offer you the maximum benefit.


Set Limitations

Our service is here to make your life easier, and we know that there may be something you won’t be comfortable with or items that you prefer your service to be carried out. Speak to one of our advisors to find out how you can control your home care service to put personal limits in place that help you feel more comfortable with your partnered senior and get the most from our expert assisted home care service.
