Struggling Caring for a Loved One?
Home Instead Can Help

Depression senior father Home Instead Senior Care in home non medical elder care northwest Georgia

After her father passed away from end-stage Parkinson’s, this father’s primary caregiver daughter told Home Instead “Had I not had help with Dad, the stress of the progressive disease and caring for him could have very likely killed me before he passed away.  I so wish I had thought to ask someone years earlier to talk with Dad and tell him how hard this also was for me — and the greatest gift he could give me toward the end of his life would be to accept help, if only for me.  I truly believe — fiercely independent and stubborn as he was — he would have accepted help, for me.

My heartfelt wish for family members now caring for a senior loved one is that they seek and accept help.  It is beneficial for everyone. Call Home Instead, they offer a free, no obligation care consultation.”

Our downloadable online brochure The Home Care Solution: A Guide to the Best Choices for Senior and Those Who Care About Them may be especially helpful for you.

We encourage you and other members of the family to watch this video and be sure to remember to laugh …as this senior woman recounts the “joys” of aging.  Laughter is the best medicine.

Why Home Care?  Because there’s no place like home…

A recent study by Home Instead Senior Care found an overwhelming majority of seniors (86 percent) want to continue living at home for as long as possible. Seniors appear to be willing to seek help to do that. The study found that 54 percent of seniors who live alone are four times more likely to use professional care than those who live with their children. The users of in-home care tend to be older: 42 percent of seniors over the age of 80 rely on professionals.
