Has the Time Come to Consider In-Home Care for Your Loved One? | Qualicare

We all want to keep our independence for as long as possible. But there comes a time when our loved ones might need more help than they admit. 

Our team of in-home care providers at Qualicare wants you to know the signs to look for when it comes to your loved one needing in-home care.

Knowing the Signs

Today, more and more seniors are wanting to age at home, and who can blame them? Fortunately, when you choose an in-home care provider like Qualicare, your loved one is able to receive the best of both worlds—quality care in the comfort of his or her own home. 

Let's take a look at some ways your loved one might be telling you it is time for in-home care: trigger events.

Trigger events are what most people call the episodes that show that a loved one needs additional care. The following are a number of trigger events that your loved one might show, including: 

  • Losing a driver's license
  • Inability to get around easily
  • A fall
  • A hospital stay
  • A procedure
  • A number of forgetful events
  • Poor appearance due to grooming and dressing
  • New fears
  • Social isolation
  • Forgetting to take medication regularly
  • Declining health

We Are Here

While you might feel as though you need to take care of your older loved one alone, this is far from the truth. Our team of in-home care providers are here to care for your loved one just like we would our own family. That way you can still take care of your own family while knowing your loved one is being cared for effectively, efficiently and carefully.

Plus, our in-home care providers don't just want to help your loved one. Our goal is to provide a 360-degree approach to care for the entire family.

So, don't go at caring for your loved one alone, especially when we are here to help!
