Having the help of a care worker can make a significant difference to the daily life of your elderly relative. If your loved one is beginning to struggle with their activities, a care worker will be able to provide support in a range of tasks.

Personal care

Carrying out adequate personal care can be problematic for the elderly. It often requires physical manoeuvres that aren’t easily done on a daily basis. If your elderly relative is struggling physically, having someone to help out with this aspect of their routine could save them time, stress, and reduce the risk of injury.

Medication support

Many elderly individuals that need care and support also need to be taking daily medications. If they suffer from poor memory or dementia, home care services may be necessary. For some individuals, remembering what they need to take can be quite the feat! A care and support worker can provide crucial assistance by keeping track of your relative’s medication needs.

 Shopping and meal preparation

Domestic duties that were once easy can feel like a marathon for someone in old age. This includes activities such as shopping, meal preparation, cleaning, and daily administrative tasks. Having an able body around from time to time to perform these tasks can make all the difference to the smooth running of your relative’s day.

24/7 care

Some people need a little more support, requiring round-the-clock care. Moving into a residential home can be a daunting and emotional transition for an elderly person. Access to 24/7 home care means that they can continue living as independently as possible, and within the surroundings that they are familiar with.

If your loved one has a separate bedroom for a care and support worker, this could be a great option for someone with significant care needs.
