Celebrating the holidays should be a time filled with peace and joy. However, if the season left you wondering about the safety of Mom or Dad, then it's probably weighing on you. There is help, though, with in home care from an agency in Chesterfield, St. Louis, or nearby areas in MO. With the right team of caregivers in place, your parents can access the support and help they need, living safely, happily, and comfortably, all in familiar surroundings. 

Next Steps to Plan Ahead for In Home Care

Before you can make a move and look for a home care agency in the Chesterfield area, you have to do some homework first. This will help you find the best-fit professionals for Mom or Dad. To get started:

Think about their needs. For instance, do they need help getting around the house, with transportation, personal hygiene, and meal preparation? Or is companion care or light housekeeping a better fit? And how often, whether daily, on a part-time basis, or even 24/7 with live-in care?

Talk to your family. Bring your parents and the rest of your family into the conversation. It's uncomfortable, but a must with one goal in mind: making sure your parents have the help they need. Even if they get defensive, keep the conversation going by asking questions, sticking to the facts, speaking calmly, and taking it slow.

Consider finances. Before moving ahead with home care, it's important to have a sense of what your parents' financial situation is like. This will help you find a home care agency in Chesterfield that won't put your family in a financial crunch. So, try to get a sense of their cost of living and also if they're eligible for any benefits from government programs.
