For many people, being a caregiver for an aging parent can become complex. Gradually the demands of caregiving can overwhelm even the most dedicated families. But there are several solutions for these circumstances, and you don’t have to face them alone. In this post, we’ll share three recent comments from family members that our senior care services teams hear frequently. Hopefully, these answers provide guidance for our readers.
“Mom’s home care agency sent a different caregiver every day, and she was still alone too often.”
A loved one may not need care every minute of the day, but it’s nice to know it’s there whenever it’s needed and will come with a familiar face. Country Meadows senior care services offer 24-hour access to medical care and caregivers available day and night to provide help as needed—all without disrupting a family’s work or personal schedule when a caregiver is suddenly not available. The availability of on-demand senior care services helps loved ones live as independently as possible, often far more so than staying in their own home. They are free to go about their day and maintain their privacy while always knowing help is readily available.
“This is all new to me, so I have no idea about the cost.”
The cost of senior care services—independent living, personal care or memory care can vary quite a lot. It’s important to remember, though, that there are fewer expenses associated with senior care services in a retirement community. Gone are home maintenance and repairs, taxes and utilities, even groceries as meals are provided. Since every person’s situation is different, Country Meadows uses customized pricing to ensure our residents pay for what they need and nothing else. And, we have a financial calculator to help you compare your current living expenses with our all-inclusive rate.
