The summer months are ideal for backyard barbecues, trips to the shore, vacations, and other outdoor fun with family, colleagues, and friends. However, if you are caring for an older adult, you may sometimes feel like your summertime plans need to be put on the back burner. You don't have to sacrifice your fun in the sun to care for your loved one.
Our experts on home health care in Philadelphia, PA, provide in-home caregivers that can help you keep your summertime commitments while ensuring your senior loved one receives the care and companionship they need. Here are a few reasons you may want to consider professional senior care from us during the summer:
Summer excursions are fantastic opportunities to relax and recharge, but it's not always possible for an older adult to travel with you. If you are traveling out of town, our staff can provide compassionate and dedicated respite care for your loved one while you enjoy a worry-free vacation.
When school dismisses for the summer, many parents find themselves chauffeuring children to camps, sports, summer jobs, and friends' houses. These errands may mean fewer available hours to care for an older loved one. Our experienced caregivers can extend the bandwidth you need to manage extra childcare responsibilities.
Our qualified caregivers can help seniors safely enjoy their favorite outdoor activities – whether taking a walk, planting vegetables in the garden, visiting the park, or simply sitting in the sun. Our caregivers can preserve your loved one's sense of independence by giving them the freedom to pursue their interests and hobbies while being on hand to assist when asked.
As we age, our bodies aren't able to recognize or handle sweltering hot temperatures as well as when we were younger, placing older adults at a higher risk of developing heat-related illnesses. A qualified and experienced caregiver can ensure your senior's home is at a safe temperature and help them remain hydrated and dressed appropriately for the weather.
If you need a compassionate and experienced caregiver for a vacation, short stint, or on an ongoing basis, our caregivers can accommodate your schedule and meet your loved one's needs.
