Peggy called Home Helpers Tuesday evening about getting some help for her mom, Mrs. A, who’d fallen and broken her wrist. Mrs. A lives in an assisted living community and suffers from anxiety; Peggy was told by the nurses in the community to call some agencies about getting some additional assistance for her mom. Before calling us, Peggy said she called a few other companies who didn’t even answer the phone after 5pm. When she called Home Helpers that evening, she was so thankful to speak with our team member, Kim, who was able to immediately get her in touch with an owner who could answer her questions and start the process of putting in place the care she needed for her mom. Peggy felt confident that we’d be there for Mrs. A on Wednesday morning; as promised, Mrs. A is receiving the extra support she needs to remain as independent as possible in her home.
When talking this morning with one of our nurses, Peggy extended her gratitude to our whole company, stating that “what we do matters.”
Home Helpers is proud to help our clients - whenever they need us!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
