Living at home alone can be a challenge for the elderly and disabled. They are at risk of injury from accidents. They may not be capable of preparing meals, cleaning their home or maintaining their personal hygiene. Depression can ensue from loneliness.
Usually, in these situations, there are 3 options:
When family members take on the burden of caring for their sick or elderly relatives, it is an act of love. However, there are only so many hours in the day. Between full-time jobs and caring for their own home and families, it’s challenging to find enough time and energy.
Reputable assisted living facilities will provide them the medical and personal care they need; however, it’s still not the same as home. Most people prefer to remain at home as long as possible. They enjoy the familiarity, comfort and independence of their own environment.
That’s where Visiting Care Giving Services comes in. We have staff that can handle all your loved ones’ medical and non-medical needs. They can remain in the comfort of their own home, while remaining certain that they will receive the proper level of care. Contact our St. Charles home care team to learn more about our services and learn about the other surrounding communities we serve.
