Still You: Aging and the Desire to Maintain Independence

When the effects of aging begin to limit independence, it is only natural to feel a sense of loss. Transitioning from independent living to requiring modifications or guidance for daily routines can be a difficult change to process. Perhaps it feels as if this shift has been approaching incrementally for some time. As years go by, once easily completed living tasks become harder and harder to accomplish alone. Or, on the other hand, it may feel as if this shift took hold almost overnight. Whether gradual or sudden, having to depend upon another to meet daily needs isn’t always easy.

Our team at Aqua Home Care has worked with many individuals throughout the years who, for one reason or another, require everyday living care. Being on the receiving end of care can be hard on those who long for independence. Having the support of a compassionate, understanding caregiver can help. At Aqua Home Care, we take the time to match individuals with in-home caregivers who truly care. We refer trusted care professionals from our reputable registry who take the time to get to know their clients and make them feel comfortable. Having someone nearby who understands and who works with you so that you can be as independent as possible in your own home can make for a smoother transition into in-home care. A needs assessment is performed when gathering information on each potential in-home care recipient. This allows all parties to be aware of what level of assistance is required. Ensuring that your needs are met with your safety, comfort and well-being in mind is the ultimate goal, and it is our duty to find the person best suited for the task.

Finding yourself in need of care at home can potentially lead to feelings of loss. We at Aqua Home Care understand that this life shift isn’t always welcomed. When care does become necessary, however, we go above and beyond to find only the best. A compassionate caregiver who considers how you are feeling and is there by your side through it all can help ease you through these big life changes. If you or your loved one is seeking care at home, please do not hesitate to call our Aqua Home Care team. Independent living doesn’t have to be forgotten once a caregiver is needed. Whether support is required for all, most, or some aspects of your day, care is available on your terms.
