Elder Care in Downers Grove, IL
Quality Elder Care in Downers Grove, IL
Perhaps the most underrated type of care we provide to our elderly loved ones is elder care. What is elder care? Elder or companion care is the care that primarily focuses on the emotional support we provide to our elderly family members by offering them company and basic assistance with their home care needs. When it comes to our aging loved ones, we want them to be happy and of sound mind in the late years of their long, fulfilled life. With elder care, we offer to you our staff of talented and diligent CAREGivers℠ that are eager to engage in fun activities with your loved one keeping them mentally sharp and enjoying the things they like to do best.
Home Instead Elder Care Benefits
Although many people are not aware of the benefits of Home Instead®, research has supported the fact that mental stimulation and activity reduces the chances of an elderly person developing Alzheimer’s and dementia. Along with the obvious advantages of remaining mentally alert, elder care offers your loved one the opportunity to remain physically active and healthy by having a compassionate guide accompany them on walks through the neighborhood or park, assistance gardening or doing basic exercises, and even helping around the house with things like meal prepping to ensure they are eating healthy.
Another great benefit of elder care is that it is cost-effective. Simply put, your aging loved ones receive genuine care and continue to enjoy their independence at a reasonable price. Many senior citizens enjoy the company, but do not need it more than a few times a week. In some cases, it’s nice for them to have somebody accompany them to the doctor’s office for a visit or help them schedule an appointment or assist them with a trip to the grocery store. Regardless of the reason, with elder care, your elderly loved one can live a life fulfilled in Downers Grove, IL.
