Is there anything more important than family? The time that we spend together and the memories we create can last lifetimes and generations. So why would we waste any time with them?
One of the most common things that we hear from people that are unsure about home care is that they don’t think that they need it because they can always get their child or another family member to do it for them.
A family member helping you with home duties might be fine every once and a while, but they also have home duties of their own. When they come for a visit they want to spend time with you and not be “put to work.”
This is when home care services can help. Home care services can take care of the standard duties to allow you more time with family. Less time working in the garden and more time with the grandkids.
One of our clients said that his kids were around all the time helping him with jobs around the house. They were there but it wasn’t fun, and it felt like work. As he said it should be about the quality of time and not the quantity of time.
If this sounds like something you were thinking than maybe it’s time to get your free assessment form My Aged Care and find out what services you are eligible for so that you can get back to spending time with those you love.
