Is Home Care Right For Me?

Sometimes it’s hard to know when help is needed at home. Perhaps you or a loved one is aging or experiencing some challenges, and you want to know what your options are. If you can answer yes to any of these questions, then it’s time to consider whether home care is right for you.

Do you have difficulty with basic household tasks such as laundry, cooking or cleaning?

Is bathing a challenge? Or dressing, due to limited movement?

Could you use help getting in and out of bed?

Do you worry or get anxious when you’re home alone? Do you feel safe?

Do members of your family show signs of fatigue or overwhelm in trying to accommodate you?

Do you feel guilty, or hesitant, to reach out to your loved one for help? Do you some times go without essential needs to avoid being a burden?

Are you isolated physically from friends or family? Live further away than you’d like?

Do you have trouble swallowing?

Do you tend to forget your medication, or get the dosages mixed up?

Do you ever notice pain in your chest, or do you have trouble breathing?

Do you fall frequently? Are you not able to live independently?

Do you have trouble operating your ventilator?

Are you using a mobility device you could use help with?
