Making Aging in Place in Chicago Possible
At Visiting Angels® Chicago Lakeshore, we understand many seniors in our local community have a deep desire to remain in their own homes for as long as they can. Our senior care services are designed to make aging in place possible, even for elderly adults with difficult age-related issues like Alzheimer’s disease or arthritis. Our home care providers offer exceptional care personalized to the unique needs and lifestyle preferences of their care recipients. By relying on this professional support, elderly adults can live life on their own terms throughout their golden years.
Understanding the Importance of Aging in Place
While the vast majority of older individuals want to live in their own homes during the aging process, this often proves challenging for many. As we age, we tend to lose strength, coordination, and overall mobility. Activities that were once second nature, whether bathing and grooming or cooking and cleaning, can become difficult or even impossible to complete safely. As a result, many elderly adults experience a loss of independence that often leads to a move away from home.
However, aging in place shouldn’t be out of the question just because a senior requires support. Remaining at home in the Chicago area while receiving professional care helps elderly adults maintain their quality of life even as they cope with significant age-related concerns. Instead of moving into an unfamiliar environment where they must adhere to a pre-determined schedule, seniors can continue to enjoy the spontaneity of life in familiar surroundings.
