How to find Greenwich home care
Right For Me
Finding the right care for a loved one is an important, personal, and often complicated decision. Especially when a parent or close family member is the one needing care, it can be hard to be objective about when the timing is right to get help. The following areas can be used as a guide to determine whether now is the right time to explore home care for a loved one.
Are there any challenges with walking, standing, sitting, or balance? One in four older adults over the age of 65 fall each year and falling once doubles the chances of falling again. While most falls do not cause injuries, an estimated 20% of falls cause serious injuries such as a broken bone or a head injury.
Are family members close by to care for the older adult? Do they have the time on a consistent basis? Even when family support is present and strong, home care can serve as a vehicle to relieve a family caregiver from time to time of caring duties to rest and recharge.
Does the older adult suffer from memory impairment that impacts their daily life? Do they forget to take their medicine or have trouble remembering things that were just told to them or just happened? Do they wander out of the house and have trouble finding their way home?
Is the home a safe environment to mitigate the chances of accidents? Even with proper precautions, some homes and their layout may present challenges for older adults to safely maneuver on a daily basis.
PERSONAL CARE ABILITY
Does the older adult have challenges completing normal personal care activities, such as bathing, brushing teeth, taking medication and dressing?
Does the older adult have regular interaction with friends and family? Research has linked social isolation to higher risks of physical and mental conditions, including high blood pressure, obesity, anxiety, depression and cognitive decline. Regular contact with people and engaging in meaningful conversation and activities helps older adults have a sense of purpose, improves their mood, and can help them live longer.

The benefits of Greenwich home care support
PERSONALIZED ONE-ON-ONE CTRE
Your caregiver’s entire focus is on your loved one, helping them to live independently and live life how they would prefer. Your caregiver can assist with all personal care needs and provide a helping hand around the house. Your care plan is personalized and based on a schedule that is convenient for you.
PREVENTS FALLS AND OTHER ACCIDENTS
Falls can happen while attempting everyday tasks such as getting into and out of the shower or walking up a flight of stairs. Your caregiver will be there to assist with these common tasks and identify other potential hazards around the home that could cause injury and potential hospital visit.
As the name implies, with home care, you will be living at home. Ninety percent of Americans 65 and older want to stay at home for as long as possible. Among the familiarity of one’s home, older adults can live in an environment that is comfortable, which can improve mood, feelings of independence, and overall confidence.
RELIEF FOR FAMILY CTREGIVERS
Caregivers can relieve a family caregiver for periods of time to allow them to rest, refresh and take care of other responsibilities.
STAY MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY HEALTHY
Caregivers help older adults stay healthy by preparing health-conscious meals, reminding when medications need to be taken, and through engaging conversation. As a reliable companion, a caregiver can facilitate participation in activities and exercise in the home and out at social gatherings to mitigate risks of social isolation.
LOW RISK OF INFECTION
By receiving care at home, the number of people the older adult will come in contact with on a regular basis is drastically less as compared with senior care facilities.
