National Long Term Care Planning Month

National Long Term Care Planning Month

October is National Long Term Care Planning Month. It was established to remind people to plan properly for their later years or on behalf of a loved one. While no one can predict the future, Long Term Care Planning Month provides an opportunity to explore the options available should the time arise when the services would be needed. Private Home Care provides exceptional caregiving for seniors, and our clients stand that choosing PHC was sincerely the best choice for long term care. For National Long Term Care Planning Month, it is important to anticipate what your or your loved one’s needs may be.

Take the time to familiarize yourself or loved ones with what caregiving may entail. Long-term care involves a variety of services designed to meet a person’s health or personal care needs during a short or long period of time. These services help people live as independently and safely as possible when they can no longer perform everyday activities on their own. This includes assistance with activities of daily living (ADL’s), support for cognitive decline, medication management, companionship, and more. Private Home Care has over 30 years of experience providing personalized care and pride ourselves on our flexibility and dedication to meet individual needs and preferences. We invite you to inquire with us today about how we can best work with you and your loved ones to create a successful long term care plan.

Aging in place is the most comfortable, familiar, and dignified manner of living for the elderly. Private Home Care provides highly skilled caregiving in order to support healthy aging in place. It has been proven time and again that aging in place is the healthiest option for seniors for nearly all measurements of health. This is proven to help slow advancement of memory loss in part due to routine and familiarity, which helps trigger memory. Smell is one of the most powerful memory facilitators for example, and studies have shown that in the early stages of Alzheimer’s, smells increase memory recall. Staying in your own home helps ensure familiar sights, sounds, and smells to help keep you connected cognitively.

Also, because of the increased network connection and being able to maintain your current social network that comes with staying in your home and community, cognitive decline can be slowed. In fact, a study found that seniors with frequent social activity and participation enjoyed a 70% reduction in cognitive decline compared to seniors who were more isolated.
