There are approximately 40 million Americans over the age of 65, according to the U.S. Administration on Aging, and that number will grow over the next decade as more and more Baby Boomers reach retirement age. Many of these people still live in their homes. Such an arrangement allows people to keep their independence. However, keeping up with maintenance and daily chores can be a burden as one ages. Home assistance can help.
What is Home Assistance?
Home assistance companies help to bridge the gap between independent living and assisted living and nursing home care. Connecticut In Home Assistance offers help with a myriad of day-to-day tasks and chores to make life easier for older homeowners, their families and/or their caregivers. Our caring and qualified team members can come in to help for an hour, a day or on a live-in basis.
Home Assistance Services
Connecticut In Home Assistance offers a full range of in home services, from transportation to the doctor’s office to daily house cleaning and maintenance to personal care. We can also be that person who reminds you to take your medication, to accompany you on a walk or to play cards with. Just a few of the services we offer are highlighted below:
- Homemaking services. If you or your mother or grandmother needs a little help with day-to-day chores, we understand that you can’t always be there. After all, you have family obligations of your own. Our caregivers can go to the grocery store, do the laundry, make the bed, take out the garbage, do dishes and prepare a meal.
- Personal care services. Sometimes just getting ready for the day can be too much to handle. Our personal care assistants can help with things like bathing, dressing, toileting and getting out of bed. These friendly and well-trained team members will also help with meals, medication and incontinence issues as well as light cleaning, cooking and shopping. This is also a great option for care-giving family members when they have to be away from home. Our personal care assistants are all certified nurses aides and certified home health aides.
- Companion services. A less often talked about fact of growing older is loneliness. After the intense activity of raising a family and/or pursuing a career, an empty house can seem confining as we get older. Our companion services can help alleviate this sense of being alone. Our pleasant companions will go for a walk, play a game of cards, fix a light snack or meal or just sit and talk. Our companions can also provide transportation to social functions, church, the doctor’s office or to go shopping.
