Thanks to in-home care providers such as SYNERGY HomeCare, it’s possible for many seniors, including those living with dementia, to retain a considerable degree of independence while remaining in the comfort of their own homes.
Knowing Your Limits
When your elderly loved one is no longer able to remain be fully independent, they often end up having to rely on close friends and family members to help out with daily tasks such as cooking, cleaning and grocery shopping. Declines in memory, physical capabilities and cognitive faculties abilities increase the responsibilities placed on these family caregivers. As the situation becomes more demanding, it can become more difficult for these individuals to maintain their own daily routine.
While it can be an enormous advantage to have friends and family nearby to provide assistance, there may well come a time when you simply don’t have the time or resources to provide the level of care your loved one needs to remain safe, healthy and happy.
