In Home Care Services in Santa Monica
Helping Your Parent Age in Place
As seniors get older, many wish to remain in their own home and community for as long as possible. This process can help older individuals enjoy independence, privacy, and dignity. Our dedicated in home care services can help you prepare for this process. If you have a parent or family member who wishes to age in place, Visiting Angels® Santa Monica can assist with this.
Let's take a look at what you can do.
3 Tips For Preparing To Age at Home
With aging in place, the goal is to ensure that your loved one has safety and comfort. They may need additional services or support to ensure that it's feasible long-term. Here's how to start planning for what they need:
- Take their health into account. Your family member's health may dictate the level of support they need, both now and in the future. Are they physically active? Do they eat regular, balanced meals? Do they have ongoing health issues? If it's possible, try to loop in their doctor or their health team. They might be able to provide insight on what support systems will benefit your parent.
- Assess safety concerns. You want to make sure that your parent can live at home safely. Falls and injuries aren't uncommon for seniors who deal with age-related muscle loss and other mobility concerns. Remove clutter throughout the house, including rugs, wires, and other potential tripping hazards. If your loved one is struggling to stand up or sit down easily, it may be important to upgrade safety in the bathroom and bedroom especially.
- Schedule regular support. Professional care can be incredibly impactful for seniors living alone in Santa Monica. It's a great way to ensure your loved one has regular social contact and help with any difficult tasks. Consider starting off small with in home care services and upgrading as necessary. You can also incorporate other forms of support, like regular visits from other family members.
