Empty Nests: Care When Living Alone

We watch those we love grow over the years as we experience the joys, worries, traditions and milestones that come with raising a family. In what can seem like the blink of an eye, the ones we cared and provided for transition into the world by leaving home and starting their own journeys. Suddenly one life phase ends and another begins, and living in an empty nest can be quite an adjustment. Living alone doesn’t always feel lonely for everyone, but it can be made more difficult when in need of support to meet daily needs.

Care on the Road with Affordable Care at Home

Driving a vehicle is how many individuals make their way around town. Whether running errands, making it to appointments on time or venturing out to social events, getting behind the wheel is a common method of traveling to where one needs to be. For various reasons, however, driving independently can pose a safety risk. Certain injuries and conditions can inhibit one’s ability to safely navigate a vehicle, putting them and others in danger. When facing driving restrictions or an inability to drive at all, going about routines that require travel can become difficult.

       Here at Affordable Care at Home, we understand the limitations one may feel when driving independently is no longer an option. This is why we offer transportation services as one of our numerous in-home care service selections. Our reliable, trusted caregivers are able to provide the care you need whether in your own home or out on the road. Providing safe transportation to destinations around town helps our clients continue their usual routines without worrying about how they will get to where they need to go. Such destinations may include:

  • Doctor’s appointments

  • Homes of friends or relatives
  • Social events
  • And more

Running Errands with Affordable Care at Home

Everyday living activities and responsibilities are an ever-present part of daily life. While some of the tasks on our plates may change and evolve over the years, others stay relevant no matter how much time passes. From paying bills and going to doctor’s appointments to more relaxing trips to the salon or store, there is much to keep us busy. However, completing such duties and going on outings around town can take a toll when they can no longer be accomplished independently. For many reasons, these and other chores may require assistance to tackle.

Affordable Care at Home is a proud provider of in-home care with years of experience helping clients meet their everyday needs. Along with offering our support with daily living, we extend our services beyond the home and out into town.

Safe Travels with Affordable Care at Home

It’s a privilege enjoyed by many. Being able to get into your vehicle and drive yourself wherever need be is a freeing, self-sufficient feeling. After passing the driver’s test and smiling (or not) for an identifying photo, that shiny, plastic rectangle sits in our wallets without a second thought unless the need for it to be shown or renewed arises. As the years go by, however, it may come to mind more and more. Some injuries and medical issues can inhibit our abilities to safely drive ourselves from place to place. Some conditions that may affect one’s ability to get behind the wheel include:

  • Limited movement and flexibility in muscles and joints. This can be related to an injury or arthritis.
  • Slowed or delayed reflexes
  • Impaired vision due to glaucoma, macular degeneration or cataracts
  • Memory loss – a common early symptom for individuals with Alzheimer’s and Dementia.
  • Hearing loss
  • Taking certain medications
  • Other medical conditions

When any of these factors affect your driving capabilities, your risk of getting into an automobile accident and injuring yourself, or others, increases. You may be concerned that one of more of these conditions will keep you homebound. Though in-home care services typically take place inside one’s home, Affordable Care at Home is pleased to extend your care beyond your doorstep. Transportation is an available option we offer for our clients who wish to get out and about while under our care. The safety and well-being of our clients has always been and continues to be our top priority. We hold our caregivers to the highest of standards, ensuring that they are qualified, skilled, competent and reliable before hire. If you require transportation as part of your care plan, you can rest easy knowing you are in the capable hands.

Offering a wide variety of services to meet the specific needs of our clients is something in which we take tremendous pride. Our caregivers provide a safe, comfortable atmosphere while these services are rendered whether inside your home or while out in the town. Doctor’s appointments, grocery shopping, visiting a friend or family member, going to the store or simply getting out in the fresh air are all made possible. You can still be on the go with Affordable Care at Home.
