Your home situation is unique, and several factors will weigh in here is a list of factors to evaluate:
Household maintenance. If you’re finding it hard to keep up, you can look into laundry, shopping, gardening, housekeeping, and handyman services.
If you’re having trouble staying on top of bills and appointments, financial and healthcare management may also be helpful.
Transportation. This is a key issue for older adults. Investigating transportation options can help you keep your independence and maintain your social network.
You may want to look into local transportation such as buses, reduced fare taxis, and senior transportation options to appointments.
Home modifications. If your mobility is becoming limited, home modifications can go a long way towards making home more comfortable.
This can include things such as grab bars in the shower, ramps to avoid or minimize the use of stairs, or even installing new bathrooms on the ground floor.
Personal care. Help with activities of daily living, such as dressing, bathing, feeding, or meal preparation, is called personal care or custodial care. You can hire help with personal care, ranging from a few hours a day to live-in care. People who provide this level of care include personal care aides, home care aides, and home health aides. Home health aides might also provide limited assistance with things such as taking blood pressure or offering medication reminders.
Health care. Some health care services can be provided at home by trained professionals, such as occupational therapists, social workers, or home health nurses. Check with your insurance or health service to see what kind of coverage is available, although you may have to cover some cost out of pocket. Hospice care can also be provided at home.
Day programs. Day programs, also called senior daycare, can help you keep busy with activities and socialization during the day, while providing a break for caregivers. Some day programs are primarily social, while others provide limited health services or specialize in disorders such as early stage Alzheimer’s.
