Ask Becci: Why In-Home Care

One question I get asked quite a bit is why someone would choose to use a personal assistance care company such as Family Staffing Solutions, instead of just taking care of their elderly loved one themselves.

While I never doubt the devotion, love, and best intentions that any person would have toward their aging parent or other elderly loved one, I know from experience that the demands of careers and other responsibilities often limit the amount of time and energy you have available for the personal care needs of older relatives. It is important to recognize that you may not always be there when they need you, and no one need suffer the guilt that sometimes occurs when you are unable to meet that expectation.

When you arrange with Family Staffing Solutions for in-home personal assistance care, good things happen. Experts agree that older family members who remain in their own home age more slowly, are happier, and enjoy a better quality of life.  They also live longer and have fewer medical expenses. By getting acquainted with a care company like Family Staffing Solutions, you can relax knowing that caring, professional in-home assistance is just a phone call away. You are free to make important decisions without emotional pressure and stress brought on by an emergency.

Family Staffing Solutions has staffed more than a 1,500,000 hours of quality personal care since 1999. Our management teams operate with the first hand knowledge of their own family experience with aging parents.  This experience gives each of them a special sense of relationship with our clients.  The Family Staffing Solutions’ caregivers are bonded and insured.  They are carefully screened and receive on-going “effective caregiver” training. Our goal is to match our best caregiver to the  individualized requests of your family. We believe that these are standards that every care company should achieve.
