Signs Your Loved One May Need Home Care

As our loved ones age, their physical health can undergo significant changes. While many elderly individuals adapt and continue living independently, some may eventually require additional support. In the early stages, family members like yourself might step in to help with certain tasks, such as mowing the lawn or assisting with grocery shopping.

However, there comes a point when their needs surpass what you can provide. At Home Care Assistance Sydney City & East, this is where our Aged Care Professionals can help with a tailored care program designed to meet your loved one’s needs. Deciding to seek home care can be challenging, so we’ve put together this guide on signs it might be time to consider professional assistance.

Struggling with Daily Activities

When your loved one starts having difficulty with everyday tasks like eating, dressing, bathing, or moving around the house, they might need home care. At Home Care Assistance Sydney City & East, our Aged Care Professionals can help with these tasks to ensure your loved one’s basic needs are met. Care plans are tailored to maintain as much independence as possible while providing necessary support.

Changes in Weight or Eating Habits

Significant weight fluctuations or altered eating habits can indicate trouble with meal preparation or forgetting to eat. While it’s important to consult a doctor for any underlying health conditions, professional care can help with meal preparation and ensuring a nutritious diet.

Difficulty Maintaining the Household

If your loved one’s home is constantly unclean or cluttered, despite never having been an issue before, they may need help with household chores. Home care services can assist with tasks like vacuuming, cleaning bathrooms, and doing laundry, allowing your loved one to focus on other aspects of their daily life.

Increased Falls or Worsening Health Conditions

Frequent falls or deteriorating health conditions may signal the need for assistance with medication management and adherence to rehabilitation protocols involving diet and exercise. Professional care can help reduce the risk of falls and manage health conditions, potentially decreasing hospital visits.

Forgetfulness, Confusion, or Changes in Mood

Confusion and forgetfulness can be distressing and lead to depression or anxiety. Mood changes might also result from feeling socially disconnected. Having a Care Professional at home can provide safety, reassurance, and social interaction, helping your loved one stay connected and secure.

Every individual is unique, meaning the need for home care and the type of care required will vary. At Home Care Assistance Sydney City & East, our Aged Care Professionals can implement tailored care plans that meet your loved one’s needs. This can help them live in their home safely for as long as possible. Recognising the signs that home care may be necessary helps you engage the right support before bigger issues arise.

This is the best home care company in Australia !
As a former employee of this company working in the office and as a Carer, I cannot recommend this company enough. They genuinely care for their clients and employees. I loved working there with... Jeremy and his staff, but unfortunately had to leave due to relocation. I would not hesitate to recommend HCA Syd East to all clients who are aged and/or with disabilities to engage this service provider for all their vital services to enable you to live and enjoy staying in your own home and to be as independent as possible. Jeremy and his staff really listen to your needs, goals and aspirations and do their very best to match you up with a compatible and suitably qualified Carer. Nothing is too much trouble.read more
Jeremy is a really good man, he has fantastic family values and cares for everyone. I would definitely recommend Health Care Assistance to help you and your family
Home Care Assistance run by Jeremy and Samantha, a lovely couple with a caring attitude and a family themselves. After bringing my Mum to Sydney and needing expert help immediately I found HCA online... and liked their story. As soon as they walked in our door, we knew we were safe. I liked the fact that there was direct contact with the owners and nothing was too much trouble. The carers selected for Mum were perfect for her and very capable. Unfortunately Mum has had to move to a nursing home now but I would happily recommend this wonderful business to anyone with aged care needs.read more
