Do you have an elderly loved one currently in hospital? A senior who might have fallen or has medical condition like COPD? If so, consider in-home senior care upon discharge.
You might say why would I need more help in the home if a nurse is going to come and check on mom? The answer is simple. The nurse is only going to visit for maybe an hour, check mom out or help with bathing and then leave.
What will happen the other 23 hours? Maybe you could go over and help mom with some vacuuming or laundry. You might be able to grocery shop for mom or dad but can you really stay with your aging loved one for couple hours and make sure he or she takes medications, complies with phyisical therapy exercises, gets regular meals and is safe going to the bathroom?
You might be able to spend couple hours you might not. Hiring an in-home senior care agency like Comfort Keepers can make a huge difference in keeping mom or dad out of the hospital.
Comfort Keepers serving the communities in Montgomery, Chester, Philadelphia and Delaware County PA has no long term contract and can provide as little as 2 hour visits. There is no frequency requirement so if you can go to your mom and dads say 3 days a week you can hire Comfort Keepers to go the other 4 or 2 or whatever you think you need to keep mom or dad home.
