How Caregiver Services in Springfield MA Help Seniors Remain Independent

Provider of Caregiver Services in Springfield MA with elderly patient

As our loved ones get older, we often ask ourselves how best to provide them with the resources they need to thrive. It's probably no surprise that most seniors would prefer to remain at home, according to many studies done over the past few years. For seniors living in or around Springfield MA, caregiver services can help them stay at home while equipping them with the needed support to stay independent. 

At Visiting Angels® West Springfield MA, we see firsthand how impactful living at home can be for seniors versus living in a nursing home. But it's not just our own experience—research over the years has shown that seniors living at home typically experience a longer life with fewer challenges related to mental and physical health. Regular caregiver services allow seniors to get affordable in-home support so they can maintain the routines and activities they've enjoyed for a lifetime.

  • Minimizing clutter. As our loved ones get older, fall risks become a very serious concern since it can have a tremendous impact on quality of life. Our caregivers can help to remove clutter and even help your family member with mobility, so they're less at risk of falling, hurting themselves, or otherwise facing mobility concerns without support.  
  • Running errands. For many seniors, tasks like grocery shopping or going to the doctor can be increasingly difficult without help. Your loved one's caregiver from Visiting Angels West Springfield MA can run errands on their behalf, remind them of doctors' appointments, and even help them get to destinations. 
  • Supportive companionship. Statistically, our aging population is at a high risk for social isolation. Many seniors can go weeks without seeing others. Caregivers provide an important check-in to make sure your loved one is all right, but we also provide compassionate support in moments of anxiety or stress.
