Benefits of Home Care

senior smilingEvery single day, families are struggling to cope. Many are raising children, working demanding jobs, and trying to care for a senior family member. Advances in medicine and healthier lifestyles help elderly and seniors live longer and continue to live more productive lives. But the numbers also tell another story. More and more children need to help care for their parents. Women, especially, are caught between balancing the care of their parents with piano lessons and Little League for the kids, a full-time job, church, community, and volunteer activities. These family caregivers eventually run out of hours in the day; the stress becomes too great and the balance is broken. That’s where we as an agency come in.

As a dedicated agency, we can help these families restore balance, order and peace to their lives and help their loved ones remain at home.

At Interactive Care Agency, we begin the care process by reviewing your needs through discussions with involved family members; when necessary we consult with the physician(s) of the care recipient, social workers, hospitals, or nursing home staff.

Next, working in conjunction with the family, we develop an individualized program to manage your daily needs. We match your needs to the best possible caregiver, bring them to your home and ask you to participate in the selection process.

Our agency provides one-on-one care for an optimal outcome. It is a 24-hour service agency that works tirelessly around the clock to meet the client and family needs. The benefit of our agency over a long-term facility or a convalescent home is that our staff provides exceptional care in the convenient of the client’s home. Trusting in our agency will bring peace of mind and prevent unexplained incidents that occur to clients while residing in long-term care facilities or convalescent homes. With elderly clients, providing care at their homes will be beneficial in regards to comfort, familiarity and convenience.

The hardest thing for a family, an elderly person, or anyone else is to trust in a stranger to take care of them or their loved ones in their home. That we are quite aware of. Another difficulty is for individuals to give up their independence. It is especially hard for a healthy active person that requires even the slightest assistance to think about receiving help. On the other hand, it is difficult for families or individuals that require greater assistance to be true to them to seek help. We know in those difficult times bringing in outside help requires planning and sacrifices to families and friends.
