Trying to find the perfect holiday gift for seniors, who have accumulated so many “things” over the years, can be a challenge. While it’s always nice to receive a candle, new tie, or food item, we have a creative suggestion to consider instead: the gift of in-home care.
While you may be thinking that the seniors in your life would balk at the idea of hiring a caregiver – after all, they’re perfectly capable of managing their daily living activities independently – SYNERGY HomeCare offers a wide range of services that are appropriate for seniors of all ability levels. Consider the following:
- After years of caring for everyone else, the opportunity to have some help with housework and laundry is often a welcome relief for seniors, freeing up time for more enjoyable activities.
- Grocery shopping and running other errands, especially during the pandemic, can be handled efficiently by an in-home caregiver, allowing seniors to remain safely and comfortably at home.
- Who wouldn’t love to have nutritious, delicious meals provided for them, and the kitchen cleaned up afterwards?
Home care services offer the opportunity to pamper older adults, offering just the services that are needed or desired, with the opportunity to expand upon those services if the need arises in the future. A senior who has become comfortable with a caregiver who prepared meals for her, for instance, will have an easier transition to additional care support, such as with safe showering/bathing and other personal care needs. And an added bonus: caregivers serve as friendly companions to alleviate feelings of isolation.
Home care services also provide family members who are assisting their senior loved ones at home with the chance to step away from caregiving chores, and simply spend enjoyable, quality time together.
