As the aging process progresses, seniors will need additional care and support from family and loved ones. While all of us would like to manage care alone, sometimes additional support is needed from professionals to provide specialized care solutions that make life easier for both the patient and family. At Home Helpers, our goal is to make life easier by providing services that allow seniors to get the care they need from home and taking some of the burden off the backs of their loved ones. Our goal is to provide the highest quality of care to seniors that need assistance from caregivers around the home.
As seniors age, they may begin to experience a common problem that affects millions of Americans. Alzheimer’s disease gradually gets worse as time goes on and eats away at brain cells in a way that can inhibit one’s ability to get work done and enjoy life. After detecting the disease, it is critical that patients immediately take action to help slow the progress of Alzheimer’s. While there is no cure, there are ways to almost completely stop its progression through long-term care. Home Helpers can assist with carrying out routine treatments that help to slow down this disease. This could include simple procedures like helping seniors to remember to take their meds to more extended care like supervision during the day or even full-time assistance.
Unfortunately, one of the primary reasons why families are forced to send parents into nursing homes is because seniors have a difficult time remembering to take their medicine. During a time when medications are so critical to the extension of one’s life expectancy, Home Helpers can assist with various services that can help individuals remember to take their medications. We can send a professional out to an individual’s home to personally administer the medications if necessary. However, in most cases we can use the Direct Link medication dispenser, which automatically administers medication at the proper time. By working with seniors in this way, we are able to save significant costs associated with moving into a care facility.
Many families are financially crippled with hundreds of unnecessary visits to hospitals in order to carry out routine checkups. Home Helpers can help seniors by routinely checking various vital signs that might be necessary without having to see an expensive doctor. Our trained professionals will be able to look for signs that additional assistance might be needed from more expensive medical professionals in hospitals. Routine checkups for conditions such as diabetes, COPD, or heart disease can mostly be done from home, and this can save significant costs.

Many individuals that are caring for an aged loved one can take advantage of our free in-home consultations where we can provide competitive rates and tell individuals how we will be able to help with a specific problem. This can give families the peace of mind that they need while spending time away from their loved ones to do routine activities like working or going to school. Through a combination of professional care and monitoring units, Home Helpers is able to save significant costs for families and seniors alike.
