No Couples Should Be Forced to Live Apart
Senior couples shouldn’t have to worry about maintaining their safety or needing help around the home and they also shouldn't worry about being separated. While separation is sometimes impossible to stop, it is almost always better to keep elderly couples together when possible.
While many elderly adults are resistant to request home care services, it is easier for them to get started with care from a professional caregiver. Many seniors opt to care for their spouse - “in sickness and in health” - but providing around-the-clock care for another person is a lot, especially if the care partner is also in their senior years.
With the right resources and a flexible caregiver set-up, the necessary support can be just a phone call away.
Reason home care services are popular with Married elderly couples:
Many home care agencies are experienced in providing care for couples,
Home care services allow elderly couples to age in place together,
Many agencies offer specialty services for senior couples ranging form hourly to live in care,
Flexible scheduling and service plans
An experienced caregiver can also spot signs of decline.
Keeping Elderly couples together with Home Care Services
Although keeping senior couples together at home isn’t always simple or easy, separating them can have terrible consequences. The loss of a long-term spouse is linked with mental health concerns, increased risk of poor physical health, and a lower average lifespan. Being able to grow old with the person you love is one of life’s greatest gifts. Our home care providers frequently work with family caregivers to keep mom and dad together in the home they love.
Some families opt for Nursing homes for their parents but they may struggle to find a care facility that can meet each parents unique care needs. If one of your parents requires personal care due to limited mobility, and the other needs home dementia care for Alzheimer’s, a high-quality home care agency can accommodate both parents’ care needs.
