BUSINESS: Home Instead Senior Care

 

Written by Sarah Paige Berling in the March 2013 Issue

Home Instead Senior CareMany people worry about their parents getting older. Will they remember to take their medicine? What if they have to go grocery shopping? Who will keep them company while I’m at work? For most people, the thought of putting them in a retirement center is heartbreaking.

Fortunately, there are companies like Home Instead Senior Care, which believe in helping seniors “age in place” in their own homes, should they wish. “It’s important for seniors to continue to live in their home for many reasons,” says Linda Childress, franchise co-owner of the local Home Instead Senior Care branch. “However, the primary reason is familiarity and comfort.” Being able to have a senior continue their lives still following their normal routine at home allows for confidence for them and peace of mind for their families.

Home Instead focuses on helping seniors live out their day-to-day life with as little interference as possible, continues Childress. “Our Caregivers provide assistance with daily activities, including shopping, grooming, cooking and companionship.”

Caregivers are usually certified nursing assistants who receive extensive training in the care of the elderly, including comprehensive Alzheimer’s Caregiver training. Furthermore, “All of our caregivers are bonded and insured, and we perform strict background checks on each and every one. We want to make sure that we are protecting our clients,” promises Childress.

When asked if there’s an option for 24-hour caregiving, Childress replied, “We have caregivers that are live-in caregivers who work 24-hour shifts with our clients, as well as temporary or part-time caregivers.” It’s all about the needs of the client.

So whether Grandma forgets to take her medicine or Mom can’t get around the way she used to or if Dad is just lonely or Grandpa needs help with his grocery shopping—Home Instead Senior Care is available to help in whatever way they are needed.
