Is It Time For Senior Home Care in Union County, NJ

Becoming a caregiver can happen in an instant. It can also take years before your loved one needs around-the-clock help. Either way, most of us are not equipped with the knowledge or skills to meet the demands that full-time (or even part-time) caregiving requires.

WHEN TO USE HOME HEALTH CARE

Having your own personal support worker is one of the best and most comfortable options for seniors who would rather live in their own home but require additional help.


Some situations in which home health is needed include:

  • Following an inpatient hospitalization, rehabilitation, or a stay at a skilled nursing facility – to help the senior transition back to independence

  • When a senior has had a recent medication change, in order to monitor for side effects and assure a new medication is effective

  • When seniors experience an overall decline in functioning – in order to help them to regain independence through therapy or learning new skills to compensate for their deficit

WHAT CAN A HOME CARE WORKER DO FOR ME?

Caregivers can assist in providing for medication management, transporting to appointments, light housework and meal preparation, encouraging modifications for the home, evaluating for health or environmental risk factors.


Additionally a home caregiver can assist with:

  • Taking the right medication at the right time

  • Running errands

  • Cleaning the house

  • Meal preparation

  • Personal care

  • In-home health care

Relying on family members to run errands will also get frustrating and inconvenient because everyone has their own busy lives to lead, especially if long-term home care is needed.


When this happens, one of the best ways to mitigate any disasters or unforeseeable inconveniences both to yourself and your family is to hire a qualified home care worker.
