How can I get help deciding if my mom needs extra care?
So how many folks out there have been at this point? After some recent visits to mom or dad, you realize that things don't seem to be running as smoothly as it once did. Mom has started forgetting to take her medicines or Dad is having falls in the shower a lot. Mom can't remember names of people and places or Dad is getting lost in his own neighborhood. This is usually the first step for most of us in deciding if mom or dad needs care. So what is the next step?
At Synergy HomeCare we not only can provide a caregiver for your mom or dad, we can also help you in your first steps of research. It helps when you sit down face to face and talk to a care manager and get the opportunity to ask that person your questions. If you had to guess right now, you probably would not know exactly what level of care your mom or dad needs or what level is offered in your hometown. By talking directly to someone you have the opportunity to ask "what exactly does dementia care mean?" or "how do I know if my mom really needs personal care and what is that?".
Of course you can do a Google or Yahoo search for these terms but let's face it, internet searches pale in comparison to an actual person who is trained to help you answer your questions.
If you want a resource to talk to call Synergy Homecare of North Georgia at 770-783-2323 and let us help point you in the right direction for care for your mom or dad in Cartersville, Canton, Acworth, Kennesaw or Woodstock.
