    Tips on How to Preserve the Quality of Life for Your Aging Parent

    Last updated 2 months ago

    Taking care of an elderly parent requires attention to their financial, physical, and emotional needs. In this video, you will learn about how to preserve the quality of life for your aging parent.


    While your parent is still capable of making their own decisions, now is a great time to discuss their will and power of attorney wishes. You should also talk about their ability to remain at home, and if they want to stay in their own house, how elderly care can help. Senior care can provide you with the time you need to attend to other areas of your life. A home care service can also give your parent the chance to socialize and bond with others.


    Home Helpers offers comprehensive in-home care services for families in the greater Philadelphia area. Call us today at (855) 241-4724 for more information on our senior assistance options.

    Home Helpers Promises to be There For You No Matter What the Weather May Bring!

    Last updated 2 months ago

    It's been extremely cold, wet and frozen in the Philadelphia area lately. While most businesses have closed their doors so that the employees don't have to travel in these conditions, the Home Helpers employees are doing the exact opposite!

    Pictured below is one of our caregivers, Natalie. While on her way to a client's home this morning, her car got stuck in the snow. Instead of thinking about herself and how she was going to get her car out, she suited up and WALKED the rest of the way to her client's house to make sure she was there for any situations that required her help.

    Natalie is the perfect example of how Home Helpers will go above and beyond for our clients. We are proud to have all of our caregivers on the Home Helpers team, and they are the reason we are the premier home care agency in the Philadelphia area. Thank you for your dedication this morning, Natalie!

    A Look at the Services Provided by Home Helpers

    Home Helpers strives to give our senior clients and their families the assistance they require to maintain healthy and balanced lives. Our comprehensive range of services cater to the differing needs of those we serve. If you are the caregiver to an elderly loved one, Home Helpers can facilitate your care with our various support options.


    Domestic Assistance

    Especially when you have your own home to maintain, trying to take care of an elderly loved one’s residence can become an overwhelming task. That is why Home Helpers offers a diverse array of in-home care services to ease your domestic responsibilities. If you require assistance to keep your loved one’s home clean and in order, we can help with tasks such as dusting, vacuuming, and dish washing. We can also make sure that your loved one has freshly laundered linens and clothing.


    Emotional Support

    Being able to live at home can afford your loved one a tremendous sense of independence, but they may not have the resources or capabilities to leave the house and maintain relationships with friends and family. The absence of these positive relationships could negatively affect your elderly loved one’s emotional wellbeing. In addition to providing the necessary domestic tasks that can make their experience at home comfortable and safe, Home Helpers can offer the emotional camaraderie that your loved one needs, as well, to feel connected with others.


    Personal Hygiene Help

    In the event that your loved one can no longer attend to their personal hygiene needs, Home Helpers can assist with these tasks. Our associates provide the highest level of professional care, so if your loved one requires help, you can rest assured know that they will receive the discretion and respect deserved as we perform these sensitive tasks.


    Would you like to learn more about how Home Helpers can help your elderly loved one? To set up a consultation with one of our Philadelphia associates, call (855) 241-4724. We would be happy to meet with you to discuss your loved one’s individual in-home care needs.

    3 Different Forms of Dementia

    Last updated 2 months ago

    Dementia is a progressive condition that can rob a vibrant person of his mental acuity and personal independence. It may begin with a frustrating inability to recall certain words or names but can then advance to behavior harmful to both the sufferer and those around him. Individuals with severe dementia may keep the oven on for hours at a time or forget to take medication imperative for health. For this reason, in-home care services can become a lifeline for families who cannot be there to watch over a loved one who suffers from one of the following forms of dementia.

    Trauma-Induced Dementia

    Doctors often warn families with elderly loved ones to supervise their activities for fear of dangerous fall accidents. A slip and fall incident can cause a fractured hip, which may force the sufferer to be immobile for months. However, if that person also hits his head during the fall, the trauma may be severe enough to stimulate the beginning of dementia. In fact, any type of serious blow to the head could bring on dementia-related symptoms such as forgetfulness and incoherent speech.

    Multi-Infarct Dementia

    Older individuals are also at a higher danger of suffering from strokes. A stroke prevents oxygen from reaching one or more areas of the brain, which can result in cellular death and brain damage. Depending on the region of the brain that suffered damage during the stroke, the resulting injury can provide the catalyst for the onset of dementia.

    Alzheimer’s Disease

    Alzheimer’s disease is the most prevalent form of dementia. This condition can take months or even years to develop. Because it can progress so slowly, sufferers and their family members may not notice the condition in its earliest stages. Unlike stroke, which causes the rapid death of brain cells, Alzheimer’s damages cells over time. As the disease continues to harm brain cells, however, sufferers tend to show more of its symptoms, including speech issues and confusion.

    Do you have a loved one who is suffering from dementia? Home Helpers can provide the compassionate in-home care you need. To find out more about the types of senior care services we provide for individuals living in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas, call (855) 241-4724.
