How To Help Aging Parents Stay At Home

When an older family member lives at home alone, it's hard not to worry about them. Maybe you've noticed them struggling with simple tasks, or maybe you're just concerned about their overall health and safety. At Visiting Angels® Charlotte, our in home care services make it easier for seniors to remain aging in place comfortably. 

In addition to our senior care, we also help families prepare for aging in place. If you're concerned about a parent living alone, here's what we recommend. 

3 Tips For Supporting Seniors in Charlotte 

A little planning can go a long way when it comes to aging in place. Often, challenges don't occur overnight. Instead, it's a gradual process—which is why it helps to set up these types of support for your aging parent: 

  • Incorporate safety features. Injuries and falls can have devastating effects on older individuals. Fall prevention is crucial for any senior aging in place in Charlotte. Walk through the house with your loved one. Are there spaces that are difficult to navigate? Do they struggle with mobility, getting up, or sitting down? Try to incorporate safety features—from grab rails to shower seats, strong lighting, non-stick rugs, and more—that help.
  • Think about social contact. Maintaining good mental health gets more crucial as we get older. Frequent social interaction goes hand-in-hand with mental health, reducing anxiety, providing purpose, and helping seniors stay alert. If your loved one has a strong network of friends and family nearby, make sure they're visiting on a regular basis. Alternatively, encourage them to enroll in local programs or other social activities. 
  • Consider in home care services. For seniors living alone, having regular professional care can be enormously helpful. Through caregiver support, they'll have a frequent source of social contact as well as help around the home. Caregivers can also help with cooking and errands and can encourage seniors to stay active and healthy. Our team can keep in touch with you, too, providing updates about your loved one's well-being.
