Benefits of home care
Home care may be right for you whether you or your loved one’s needs are medical or non-medical.

Increased in-home safety:
In many cases, family members are not able to assist seniors who are aging in place as often as they would like to. Having a home health aide present to assist your loved one can offer peace of mind during those times. In-home care providers can also evaluate the home and communicate with family members about any potential hazards that may exist. These adjustments along with the presence of a provider in the home may also reduce the risk of falls.

Greater independence:
Whether recovering from a hospital stay, or aging in place, extra assistance with household tasks can increase independence for older adults. Home health aides can assist with light housekeeping, meal preparation, and even transportation when needed. This is especially helpful for older adults who are no longer able to drive but are still looking to participate in activities outside of the home.

Socialization:
Isolation can greatly impact older adults mentally, physically, and emotionally. Connecting with a non-medical companion can be a great way to increase socialization. Having someone available to help older adults travel and continue their normal activities throughout the week also removes social barriers of aging and disability.

Medication management:
Many older adults take multiple medications on a daily basis. It can be challenging to keep track of when (and how much) medicine should be taken. Home care providers can aide in not only the administration of medication, but monitor possible side effects and drug interactions that may occur.

These are just some of the benefits of home care with Wilf At Home. Our commitment is to provide quality and individualized in-home care, ensuring that we create an atmosphere of trust, respect, dignity, accountability, integrity and excellence.
