Aging is a part of life. We can’t simply stop the clock. For most older adults, the time will come when a little extra assistance performing the tasks of daily living is necessary. In fact, there’s a 2 out of 3 chance that a senior becomes physically or cognitively impaired in their lifetime.
Staying in one’s own home for as long as possible is an attractive option. In fact, about 90 percent of older adults want to age within their own home. For some seniors, moving into a long term care facility like an assisted living facility or a nursing home is an option. For millions more older adults, “aging in place” at home is ideal. With many elders, this goal that can be attained through the help of senior home care. Chosen Family Home Care exists to ensure that seniors can get the most out of life.

What does senior home care, also referred to as elderly home care, entail? How do you know if it’s the right choice for you or a loved one?
There are a large array of different services available to seniors aging in place. Many senior home care options will fall into one of two different categories.
For starters, one category focuses on personal care services that assist with activities of daily living. Additionally, they can also focus on other needed senior support areas. The services offered may vary , but are tailored to meet the needs of the older adult that they serve. For example, support might include homemaker services, running errands, and housekeeping help. Other services might include companionship and hands-on assistance with a senior. Caregivers might help older adults bathe, get dressed, and cook, among other things. Chosen Family Home Care can offer all of these services based on a senior’s need. On the other hand, senior home care services might revolve around professional care assistance.
