Working daughter discovers home-care solution for parentsTrueCareAdmin
It has already been several years since Jennifer Murray took over the duty of making the annual Thanksgiving turkey from her mother.
But, Murray noticed her regular weekend visits were increasingly busy: helping with the upkeep of her parents’ household. Lately, it seemed there had not even been time for a walk in the park with her dad or a talk over tea with her mom.
Murray, an only child and MBA candidate at Notre Dame University faced, a looming dilemma. After her MBA, she will relocate to Chicago.
“They are still well enough to remain in our family home but do not have a strong support network,” she says, weighing her options, “Of course, I’ll be back for Thanksgivings but my parents need more regular assistance.”
Dianna Holmes, MSW, HFA, was a local nursing home administrator. She was recently appointed chief operating officer of People TrueCare, and can now confirm, “In these situations, home care is a perfect solution.”
“Seniors who stay in the familiar surroundings of their own home fare the best, both mentally and physically,” she says, “What many people do not realize is home care often is very reasonable as our home care professionals only work the hours necessary to meet the individual needs of our clients. Seniors residing in a skilled nursing facility pay for 24-hour care even if it is not needed.”
Senior TrueCare services allow you to continue living in the quiet and peaceful comfort of your home longer, going about your customary activities, eating your favorite home-made foods and living at your own pace. Senior TrueCare provides targeted assistance and thoughtful oversight to clients and families. Having a mature, personal home care professional to support those making a choice to remain at home, is a beautiful option.
For Murray, discovering Senior TrueCare as an option meant piece-of-mind: “I’m so glad knowing someone will be there, to stroll with my dad, run errands, make sure the house is taken care of and have a chat with my mom.” As mom and dad’s needs change, Senior TrueCare can assist in navigating their journey even if they would require 24-hour services every day in the privacy of their home.”
