Home Care Grove City PA
Want to stay in your home?
Is home care right for you? Deciding whether to stay at home or to move into an alternative living situation should not be a rushed decision. Take time to think about where you are now in your life and what you need.
Weigh the following options
- Household maintenance- could you benefit from a helping hand of an aide or a staff person who will only do as they are asked but will respect your independence in your home? Do you need help with shopping or doing laundry? Or is alternative care a more appropriate choice?
- Personal care- could you use a helping hand with bathing, dressing, meal preparation, etc.? Do you need a few hours a day or would you benefit from 24 hour care?
- Transportation- like many people, do you find it hard to drive at night? Do you feel comfortable or safe driving anymore? Would you like a home care staff to aid you into the community for doctors appointments or provide a ride to the grocery store?
- Companionship- feeling sad that there is no one at home for you to converse with and relate to? We offer companion aids that are strictly for the purpose of keeping you company.
Not sure what the answers are? A Transition Coordinator from our agency can assist you during a “assessment” to help develop a plan of care for your needs and wants. Other people that can help you in making a decision are your doctor(s), family, friends, Gecac, etc.
