Asking for help can be hard. It requires a level of vulnerability that most of us are not comfortable with. This is especially true for the demographic Companions for Seniors serves the most, our mothers, fathers and grandparents. They’re usually from a generation that survived The Great Depression, fought in a World War and raised a family through it all. They’re use to providing others with care, comfort and a helping hand.
When that dynamic shifts for your parent or grandparent it’s important to emphasize that asking for help isn’t a sign of weakness. When talking to your loved about getting help, emphasize that it’s not about them doing less, it’s about wanting them to be able to do more.
Usually when people contact us about getting help for their parent, it’s because their parent has become less active and whether they mean to or not, they’ve started to shut themselves off from the world. Hiring the services of a home health agency like Companions for Seniors, can help give those in need of our services their independence back. We see our client’s engaged more with their family and circle of friends because they no longer have to worry about how they’ll get somewhere, or doing chores around the house that drain their energy.
Often times, when we meet with a client for the first time, especially when we’re brought in at the request of the child of the client, our initial interviews start with a defensive mood. Once we explain what our services can do to expand their lives, the mood always changes to excitement. They become excited because they understand that less time doing chores/running errands etc… means more time they’re to spend with the ones they care about.
We love being able to give our client’s the gift of a more fulfilling life. It’s why we started this company. We want our client’s to be able to do all of the things that make them happy, all while still living in the comfort of their own homes and communities.
