As you consider using a nursing home or in-home care to assist your senior loved one it is important to consider why they chose to live in a certain place. Wood Dale is close to the big city, and a vibrant part of the Chicagoland area, but far enough away to have a life all its own. With a lively community, metro parks for playing outside, and access to all the amenities that come with being near a city it is easy to see why someone would choose to make Wood Dale their home.
With that all being said, consider your loved one’s feelings and don’t underestimate the care available to them at home before booking that room in the nursing home. Most seniors only require small amounts of help to continue living at home. This can include help getting ready in the morning, a hand keeping the house clean, or maybe they just need assistance in preparing healthy meals. Comfort Keepers offers these supports and more as part of our customized in-home care plans.
Even if your loved one has a more serious, progressive challenge, such as dementia or Alzheimer’s, that does not necessarily mean they have to move. Comfort Keepers offers medication management with helpful reminders, home monitoring systems to ensure help is always available, and even 24-hour care to ensure someone is always nearby. These services are available based on your loved one’s schedule and can be fully customized based on need or preference.
Whether your loved one just needs a hand around the home or full-time care, Comfort Keepers can create a specialized care plan to meet your needs. Contact one of our in-home care consultants about an in-home care consultation as soon as you think care is needed.
