Do You Need Elderly Assistance Services?

Hiring elderly assistance services can be a big help to you and your loved ones. Here are a few things you’ll want to know before you check out home care agencies.

Are you the primary caregiver?

Caring for a loved one can take a toll on you. If you’ve been doing it for a long time now and you’ve started withdrawing from friends and family, you’ve lost interest in activities you previously enjoyed and you’re often irritable or sad, then you could be suffering from caregiver burnout, the WebMD says. That’s often the result of a number of reasons, including taking on too much by yourself. If you haven’t got anyone else to help you care for your senior loved ones, then it might be time to consider elderly assistance services.

Do your parents live alone?

On the other hand, if you live apart from your parents, and you’re starting to see signs that your parents are having a tough time moving around and performing everyday tasks, then hiring the services of a home care agency can be the best solution. Engaging the services of a home care aide can give you peace of mind. You’ll breathe easy, knowing someone is keeping an eye on your senior loved ones. Also, having an aide help around the house, run errands for them, prepare their meals and offer grooming or bathing assistance can take a lot of the pressure off you. You don’t have to feel guilty about not being there because you know you’re doing what you can to ensure they get the best care possible.

How to choose an agency?

Look for a home care agency that’s a good fit for what you and your parents need. Here are a few tips to guide your decision:


As we age, our bodies change. We lose agility and strength. We lose our sense of balance. We lost stamina. It can be difficult to watch a loved one going through this, slowly losing their independence and ability to do for themselves. A home health care service can help, but how do you know when your loved one is ready for a helping hand around the house?

Changes to House Care

One of the first signs that your loved one might be ready for a little help is if there are changes to the way they maintain their home. You might notice that dishes are piling up in the sink and on the counter. You might see that they are not taking out the garbage regularly, or that a once spic-and-span home has not been swept or vacuumed recently.

Changes to Appearance and Grooming

Another good sign that your loved one is in need of compassionate help in the home is an increase in changes to their appearance and a lack of grooming. They might wear the same clothing repeatedly, or you might notice mounds of unwashed laundry. They might let themselves go as far as personal grooming is concerned.

Forgetting Medications

Yet another sign that your loved one is not as independent as they once were is consistently missed medication doses. Everyone misses a dose of medication from time to time, but if your loved one is consistently missing doses (or taking too much medication), it’s a sign they need help.

European Best Care can assist with either full-time care or respite for special needs patients. Caring for a loved one with special needs, whether it be from injury or disease, is proven to be overwhelming for inexperienced family members. We are committed to meeting the needs of individuals with conditions that inhibit their day-to-day lives. Our elder care caregivers are trained to accommodate many special physical needs and mental illnesses with the utmost levels of empathy, understanding, and professionalism. We will work one on one with family members of the patient to assess their unique needs and craft a custom care plan accordingly. Once the right caregiver for the job is chosen, they will come as much or as little as needed to offer their companionship, assistance, and emotional support. Our caregivers will aid with daily tasks like eating, bathing, and running errands. Senior adults with special needs can feel a greater sense of independence with our in-home caregiving services. For anyone who can no longer care for themselves adequately due to a physical or mental disability, we are here to ensure they remain safe and cared for in their homes.

Companion Care

The level of companion care we offer changes based on the seniors and their unique needs. Our non-medical services are administered in the home of the senior and involve both social and physical care for the elderly. The primary goals of companion care services are to provide exceptional emotional support, improve the well-being and quality of life for the senior, and drastically reduce feelings of loneliness. We hand select each caregiver that we believe will be a fitting match. They will provide a warm, comforting, and uplifting environment in the home of the senior to help lift some of the burdens of inevitable aging challenges they may be facing. Companion care helps support independence for seniors so they can stay in their homes for longer. Human companionship is a basic need we all require, seniors who may live alone or be isolated from others will especially benefit from regular human contact. The level of care and frequency of our visits are entirely customizable based on the needs and wishes of the senior. If a senior is experiencing early signs of dementia or Alzheimer’s, companion care with enough mental stimulation can help drastically delay the devastating effects of these diseases.

Companion care services include:

  • Medication reminders
  • Light housekeeping tasks
  • Light physical activity (walks in the park, neighborhood)
  • Encouraging social activities. Including shopping trips, movies, family visits
  • General shopping (groceries, household items, medications)
  • Help with bathing, grooming, and dressing
