Your decision making
When to consider a helping hand at home
‘There’s no place like home’
It’s only natural that you’d like to stay living at home, to enjoy your independence and autonomy, but there may be a time where you need help with some tasks around the house in order to keep you there.
Consider these questions;
- Having more difficulty doing certain tasks around the house?
- Struggling to maintain yourself and your home?
- Paying your bills?
- Recuperating after a hospital stay?
- Feeling fatigued?
- Having concerns about becoming more forgetful than usual?
- Nursing your partner?
- Experiencing the loss of a loved one or carer?
- Wanting to get from A to B but can’t drive anymore?
- Getting out to see friends, the doctor, or other usual outings?
Family members and friends
Are you concerned about the wellbeing of your loved one for any of the following reasons?
- They are struggling living on their own, or caring for their partner, and are not coping
- Worried about them falling or having an accident
- Seeing some (increasing) signs of forgetfulness
I have observed that;
- what were once simple tasks for my loved one are now becoming difficult
- their personal hygiene is not what it used to be, or they often wear the same clothes
- they are no longer doing activities/hobbies that they used to do until recently
If any of these questions or other concerns you have about their ability to cope resonate with you, it may be time to consider help from RSL LifeCare At Home. You may simply want to discuss your concerns for peace of mind.
