The desire to remain at home can be strong during the holiday season because, simply put, there truly is no place like home for the holidays. It’s where we carry out our cherished family traditions and create our fondest memories. It’s where our loved ones gather together under one roof. It’s where the smell of holiday treats fills the air. Being home for the holidays provides a comfort like no other.
While this season is known for bringing great joy, it can also be a very difficult time of year, especially for those facing serious illness. Home care services can be especially helpful during the holidays for seniors and their families.
Reduce Avoidable Hospital Admissions
Having a skilled clinician regularly monitor your health for any changes, manage your medications, provide prompt health interventions when necessary, and advocate for you with your physician(s) can prevent hospital visits. Our personalized care services are tailored to your unique health needs, providing you with peace of mind and clearing up your time and energy to be spent on the things that matter most.
Limit Illness Exposure
Illnesses such as flu, pneumonia, and COVID-19 peak in the winter months, making seniors especially susceptible to more severe illness. Receiving care in the comfort of your own home can limit possible exposure from clinics, hospitals, and other public places.
Combat the Winter Blues with Companionship
The bittersweet memories of loved ones who have passed, spending more time indoors, colder temperatures, and less socialization during the winter can amplify feelings of loneliness and isolation.
The companionship provided by home caregivers can lift your spirits and combat these holiday blues by providing social interaction and support while improving your quality of life. A companion caregiver can also help assist with a range of non-medical services to alleviate stress including light housekeeping, meal preparation, etc. Your loved ones may also find comfort in knowing that you have a caring companion looking out for you when they’re not around.
Care in the Comfort of Your Own Home
We create your custom care plan based on your individual health needs and goals, allowing you to set a schedule that is convenient for you and develop a routine that you feel happy with. We all want to age in the familiar comfort, safety, and security of our own homes. Our care can help put you at ease by providing you with the care you need while allowing you to continue living within familiar surroundings.
We’d love to lend a helping hand this holiday season. Let us give you the gift of staying home for the holidays!
