We all love our independence. Most of us want to live independently in our own homes for as long as possible. However, as we get older, there are certain things that we may no longer be able to do on our own, including many things that are critical to our quality of life. This includes: managing medications correctly, running errands, cleaning the house, preparing healthy meals, as well as maintaining personal and health care.
Managing day-to-day tasks can become increasingly difficult as we age and admitting we need help is not always easy. Plus, with everyone balancing work and lifestyle commitments, it is often difficult for families to juggle the extra time needed to maintain long-term support for ageing parents. Accessing extra support in the home can ease the burden of running errands and managing daily care needs, allowing more precious family time to enjoy together.
Accepting in-home care is often the best and most comfortable option for seniors who need additional help but would rather live in their own home. With quality care to maintain your independence, you can continue to live in the place you feel most comfortable.
If you or a loved one is finding it difficult to manage day-to-day chores such as personal care, shopping, housework and gardening, it might be time to consider a Home Care package with Orana to support you to safely stay in the comfort of your own home.
