Hire a Caregiver and Stop Worrying About Your Loved Ones

We humans are considered a very intelligent and smart species however, in certain situations you end up doubting this very theory. During this time of development, advancement and competition, we humans have indulged ourselves in this unnecessary race of life, where we do not get any time for ourselves at all.

These situations cause feeling of frustration and anger for someone with a healthy and normal household. Now imagine the situation for someone who has a person to take care of and to provide help 24×7, it is indeed more frustrating and aggravating for him.

Whenever you think about hiring a help for your family member there are certain problems that you face that stop you from approaching the help.

  1. Lack of Trust:
    The basic form of hurdle that you face is the lack of trust on the third party. In the current times, it has become difficult to trust those who are close to you or even your blood relations, then how can one possibly trust a stranger with his family member?
    However, if you do it right then you can overcome this specific problem completely. For instance by hiring a Caregiver you will be able to supervise the situation anytime that you want. You will also be able to calculate your family member’s behavior with the caregiver and how that caregiver is handling the patient.
  2. Feelings of Relaxation:
    When you get someone to help you in your problem, you tend to feel more relaxed and happy. Such feelings emerge themselves in everything that you do: your work, your tasks and the time you spend with your family also improves.
  3. Shared Responsibility:
    By hiring a caregiver you find someone to share in your responsibilities with: you feel gratitude and respect for them. This share in responsibilities also gives you extra time for not only yourself but also for any task that was left pending by you for so long.
  4. Privacy:
    When we talk about taking care of senior citizens, most patients feel embarrassment and abasement because some stranger is taking care of them at some unknown place filled with strangers. However, in case of hiring someone from home care industry, the patient also feels somewhat relaxed because they are at the familiar and safe place: their homes. When it comes to taking care of a senior person, mental health is very important and disrupting it can cause further problems rather than solving them.
  5. You get to decide:
    In the case of other types of help, the company sometimes makes decisions by themselves, however when you hire a caregiver it depends upon you about the level of help that you want from the caregiver. Even after hiring them, you get to make the most decisions based on the situation and circumstances.
  6. Any task that you want:
    Caregivers can provide you all types of help that you require from them. It can vary from washing patient’s cloths to feeding them, from bathing them to just talking to them and giving them company, from picking groceries to cleaning and vacuuming the house.

    Claire J.
  • Akin Care Senior Services Agency provided excellent care for my dad. On the first phone call, Ann was very attentive to my dad’s specific needs for a live-in caregiver and wanted to identify the perfect caregiver before accepting the job. I interviewed several other agencies and concluded they were going to be revolving door of caregivers. Once I selected Ann, she was very helpful in navigating what I needed to do and identified resources for me to access. What you get with Akin is honestly, Ann, the owner of the company. I live in Georgia and my dad in Princeton – so I really needed a local person I could count on and trust. Ann was always available by phone or text and was present with my dad as needed – without having to be asked. She identified the perfect caregiver matched to my dad’s physical and personality needs and they immediately hit it off. She treated my dad as if it were her own father. Thank you Ann – the peace of mind you gave me was precious.
