When would your dad benefit from home care assistance? If he’s starting to slow down, especially with some daily tasks, it’s important to support him when he needs a helping hand. Take a closer look at the ways home care assistance helps him.
Your Dad’s Home Is Clean
One of the most popular home care services is housekeeping. A caregiver will help clean your dad’s home. Caregivers will sweep or vacuum the flooring, tidy up clutter, dust surfaces, and wipe down counters, sinks, and the stove.
His caregivers can take out the trash and recyclables, bring trash cans back to his garage or shed, and replace empty trash containers with new bags. They can water his houseplants and remind him to feed and water his pets.
The Laundry Is Completed
Caregivers stop by and do your dad’s laundry every week. His bedsheets are changed and clean sheets are put on his bed. Clean towels replace his dirty ones. His caregiver gathers, carries to the laundry room, washes, and dries all dirty laundry.
If your dad needs to go to a laundromat for his, his caregiver can drive him and keep him company while the washer and dryer do their jobs. Your dad’s caregiver will bring the laundry to the right rooms and put it away, whether it is completed at home or in a laundromat. If anything needs ironing, his caregiver can iron items before hanging or folding them.
Your Dad Has Home-Cooked Meals
Your dad has never been much of a cook. But, home care assistance ensures your dad has a caregiver at his home for meals. His caregiver will cook what he wants, alter it if needed to meet dietary needs like low-salt or sugar-free, and join him for the meal if he hates eating alone.
His caregiver will talk to him about what he’d like for the week. They’ll build a grocery shopping list together and shop for items that match your dad’s preferences and dietary needs. His caregiver can carry everything in from the car and put food away before it spoils.
Someone Stops By Regularly
One of the most important benefits of home care is that someone regularly stops by. It could be once a week, several times a week, or daily. It’s up to you and your dad to decide how often he wants a caregiver around.
During those visits, if anything seems off, such as a heating system that’s not heating his home effectively, his caregiver can help him schedule repair services. If his water isn’t flowing correctly, his caregiver helps him arrange to have someone check it out.
Your dad ran out of milk. So, his caregiver helps him create a list of the items he needs, and takes him shopping. Or, his caregiver can pick up a grocery order for him.
Support your dad with the home care assistance arrangements that meet his needs. An advisor can help you schedule caregiver visits and choose the services that will help the most.
