Home Care Services – Ways to Know When It Is Time

Home care services offer elderly care clients the assistance they need to live comfortably and safely in their own home.  However, for some families, home care services can be a tricky topic.  Those who are nervous about talking to a loved one about long-term home care should know they are not alone. Millions of Americans are already caring for their aging parents and relatives and those numbers will only increase over time. But taking that first step to start conversations with loved ones about long-term care is an important one. What to Look For What are the signs a loved one needs help? There are several – many which are noticed during visits with relatives. Pay attention to the condition of the home. Is it messy or cluttered? Are kitchen supplies being put away in the right places? Are bills being paid on time? Look at the condition of the person. For instance, notice hygiene and clothing. Are they taking showers, brushing teeth and changing clothes on a daily basis? More importantly, do the clothes make sense for the weather or season? Weight loss is also a sign that they may need additional care. Confusion and forgetfulness are both important [...]

Home Care Service Encourages Clients to Reduce Sodium Levels

ComForcare Home Care shares tips to help elderly care clients avoid hidden sources of sodium for a more nutritious diet and improved overall health.  Home care services offer help with many aspects of daily life, including one of the most important – nutrition.  There is a Chinese proverb that states, “He who takes medicine and neglects diet, wastes the skill of his physician.”  It’s no secret that Americans in general could benefit from a healthier diet, and luckily, many are making changes to select more nutritious meals for themselves and their families. With the introduction of convenience foods into our society, one aspect of health that has become problematic is the consumption of too much salt.  The average American consumes about 3,400 milligrams of sodium a day – more than twice the 1,500 milligrams recommended by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.  Furthermore, 75 percent of our sodium consumption comes from processed and restaurant foods. While a little salt is okay, eating too much can create serious health problems, including high blood pressure and can increase your risk for heart disease and stroke.  At ComForcare Home Care, we encourage our home care clients to make healthy diet choices and are [...]

Home Care Franchises Offer Professional Alzheimer’s Care

Bloomfield Hills, MI, December, 2012 - Alzheimer’s care can be a big responsibility and is often given by loving family caregivers who are willing to put the needs of their loved one above their own.  Many family caregivers work tirelessly to enable their loved one to continue living in the comfort of their own home.  However, with the number of Alzheimer’s cases continuing to rise, it is very common for spouses and elderly care givers to begin to show signs of dementia themselves as the years pass.   ComForcare Home Care urges families to observe elderly couples living at home to determine what their needs may be and find ways to meet them so loved ones can continue to live happy, healthy lives at home.   The Alzheimer’s Association has projected that the number of Americans affected by dementia or Alzheimer’s disease is expected to rise from 5 million to almost 16 million by the year 2050.  To manage this growing concern, the association suggests that elderly couples with early signs of dementia plan for advanced home care or Alzheimer’s care services at some point in their lifetime.  Home care franchises like ComForcare provide professional and compassionate elderly care and Alzheimer’s [...]

ComForcare Home Care Shares Insights for Lengthening Lifespans

Home care experts at ComForcare have come together this month to share ten ways to help seniors lengthen their lifespan: Protect Your DNA. As we age, the ends of our chromosomes — called telomeres — become shorter. This makes people more vulnerable to disease. You might think there’s nothing you can do, but new research suggests otherwise. In a pilot study, lifestyle changes boosted an enzyme that increases telomere length. Other studies also find diet and exercise can protect telomeres. So healthy habits may slow aging at the cellular level.  Speak with your home care provider to share ways you can incorporate healthy habits into your life. Be Conscientious. An 80-year study found one of the best predictors of a long life is a conscientious personality. Researchers measured attributes like attention to detail and persistence. They found that conscientious people do more things to protect their health and make choices that lead to stronger relationships and better careers. Make Friends. Science has given you one more reason to be grateful for your friends – they might help you live longer. Australian researchers found elderly social butterflies were less likely to die over a 10-year period compared to people with the fewest friends. [...]

ComForcare Offers Support and Guidance for Family Caregivers

Home care providers are encouraged to get together and share ideas, practices, and motivational stories and quotes to keep each other moving forward during tough times. Caring for an aging or sick relative can be time consuming and stressful, but staying positive and counting your many blessings will help you along the way. Here are a few tips to keep the faith as a home care provider:   -      Get Educated. Often times we worry about every little change in our loved one’s health or appearance. While it’s always good to get these things checked out, educating yourself so you know what to expect as a home care provider will help manage the stress.   -      Put Yourself First. At the end of the day, if you are unhealthy it will not do anyone any good. It is so important for you to take some time out of each and every day to refresh. Step away, even if it is for a few minutes, to do something just for you.  If you are feeling constantly overwhelmed, consider hiring a home care agency to provide respite care so you can focus on your own health too.   -      Schedule Fun. Schedule entertaining activities a [...]
