It is often very hard for people of any age to admit they need help, especially if they’ve never asked for it before. But if they can get help in the house it’s a lot easier than having to go to a sheltered housing unit or a senior home. Staying at home helps the people maintain their independence.
So what are some of the areas of help available? Household maintenance is one which means a cleaner, or someone to help with laundry and ironing, shopping and gardening and even someone who can be on top of the bills and appointments. There are also apps these days for that so a loved one could just set that up for the person requiring help.
Transportation is another issue. Sometimes people find it increasingly difficult to drive or would rather not drive at night. Look into local transportation options which also have reduced prices for disabled/elderly.
There is so much help that can facilitate staying in the home for those who are starting to experience difficulty in some areas.
