It is important to know that help is close by when you most need it. Here are our top 3 reasons why you should look to receive help at home.
A loss of independence can be a difficult time when you are used to doing things on your own. It can be stressful, enraging and embarrassing when you need to start asking people for help. Asking for help isn’t the end of the world, and is actively encouraged when you reach an older age where it is okay to ask.
Here are our top 3 reasons why you should ask to receive help at home
- Helps to regain independence. Once you start receiving help at home, you have the opportunity to feel more confident to be able to do things again that you never thought you would be able to. Things such as gardening and cooking can become a regular part of your life with someone by your side to offer support in doing the activities you enjoy.
- Promotes an environment of safety. As you grow older if your vision, hearing, or mobility start to decline, simple things that never used to be a concern can become a safety concern for both you and your loved ones. Things such as mats and steps becoming more dangerous and can lead to a fall or injury. It can be important for someone to remove these items or make these risk areas as safe as possible to prevent the likely hood of things such as falls.
- You and your loved ones can make easy choices. When you receive help at home, your ability to make choices becomes even easier with the ability to choose how you receive help and when you receive it. This opens up the freedom to have days where the family can visit or you do your own thing when you want to.
