Home Care Services in Oshtemo

Home care services are an important part of aging in place for many seniors in Oshtemo. In-home care can help seniors maintain their daily routines and favorite activities, while keeping them happy and safe in the comfort of home. Without this kind of support, many older adults would be at risk of losing their independence.

As helpful as home care services can be, many families in Oshtemo struggle with the question of when to get started. At Visiting Angels® of Southwest Michigan, this is one of the most common issues we encounter. Families know their loved ones will need in-home care at some point. But they’re unsure if now’s the right time to hire these services.

If you find yourself in this situation, we recommend scheduling a free home care consultation. We offer these consultations at no charge and with no obligation. This way, families in the Oshtemo area can speak with an expert about in-home care without any pressure or risk.

In the meantime, here are three important points that you and your family may want to consider.

When to Get Started with Home Care Services?

Discussions About Home Care Happen for a Reason. If your family is considering home care services for a loved one, it’s probably for a good reason. In our experience, very few families will discuss home care services before it’s necessary. Instead, it’s much more common for families to wait longer than they should before contacting a home care provider in Oshtemo.

Part-Time Care Can Make a World of Difference. Hiring a home care service can feel like a life-changing decision, but that’s not the case in many situations. If your loved one is mostly independent but needs help with occasional tasks, you can schedule care accordingly. Short, weekly visits will give your loved one a helping hand with activities like laundry and light housekeeping. In between, your loved one can maintain their regular routines.

Family Caregivers Need to Practice Self-Care. Today, tens of millions of Americans act as unpaid caregivers for family members. If you’re in this situation, it’s important that you find time to care for yourself. Respite care visits can help you avoid caregiver burnout—an all-too-common problems for family caregivers. If you start to find yourself feeling overwhelmed, don’t wait until it’s too late to schedule respite care.
