If your family is contemplating the idea of in-home care to help provide for the needs of a senior, you’re not alone. There are more than 15.7 million1 “family caregivers” across the nation who spend their time and money caring for an aging loved one who can no longer live entirely independently. The levels of required care can vary widely, from those who just can’t drive themselves around anymore to people who require virtually non-stop assistance. If it is no longer feasible for you to continue providing the necessary level of care all by yourself, finding a reputable and reliable in-home care provider may be the best thing you can do for yourself and your loved one.
All the Comforts of Home
Most seniors prefer remaining in their homes, even if they have health ailments or difficulty moving around freely. We all, hopefully, enjoy being at home. It’s an environment personalized over the years to maximize comfort and happiness. Your loved one’s home is likely an integral part of who they are, which is why it’s so difficult for many seniors to acquiesce to moving into a care community. With in-home care, seniors can continue to enjoy the home in which they’ve built a life while at the same time receive the care and companionship they require.
The loss of independence is often one of the most difficult things seniors deal with as they age. Many have to admit that they need assistance and begin to consider the various care options available. Many seniors feel relieved when they have someone in their home to assist them. They are able to rely less on busy family members allowing them to ultimately reduce their stress and improve their quality of life. Most seniors want to do as much for themselves as possible, and in-home care supports seniors by helping them do just that but with the level of assistance they need for overall well-being..
A cornerstone of in-home care is personalization. Caregivers get to know the seniors and can provide the tailored services each individual needs. The in-home care SYNERGY HomeCare provides includes a personal touch that makes the experience of home care a positive one. By utilizing the services of the same caregivers, your loved one will build a relationship and friendship with a person who will be happy to provide companionship when you can’t be there.

Families enjoy immense peace of mind after inviting a caregiver to their home or the home of the senior.
