Long Term Home Care


Disabled Need Long Term Home Care

Disability is not only a trouble for disabled person himself, but it’s also a test for siblings` love to that person. And you’ll agree that mental disability is just like a plight! You love your disabled spouse, you want to look after him, and you try… but how long? Because most of the time disability is for good. And you never know when he is going to recover.

Did you ever think about a disabled person? About his needs? He needs medicine in time, he needs proper food, and he needs someone who visit him regularly. Just think how he takes bath, how he walks, how he even breathe? He needs someone to whom he may trust. Yeah he also needs an emotional companion. Who will be such kind of person? A spouse!

But in today’s corporeal world it’s too difficult choice to choose between one`s dreams and taking care for a disabled person. Even if you do choose helping, for how long will you continue doing so? Because you are getting nothing through it. For how much time will you be as determined as you were on the first day? Its bitter reality that one day you will get tired. You won’t find yourself able to do this. And you will think this job as a burden. It’s not only bad for you but worst for that disabled person if you can’t continue.

Let me explain this scenario with an example. Jacob is an average American with some dreams in his mind. He and his wife Clara live happily in Washington DC. One day, they come to know that Clara`s father is paralyzed. They go to their small town and find out his condition is not satisfactory. Clara can’t leave her Father in this condition as he is the only one who supported her with each decisions of her life. Neither can she leave her job, where she is going to be promoted in next few weeks. What should she do? Yes, as a good daughter she must live with her father and should take responsibility of him. But can she Leave Jacob and her little Johnny? No; is there any way out? Yes, there is a way called Professional Home Caregiver.

A professional home caregiver is just like another friend in a family. He is the substitute for the time you can’t give to your disabled person. Moreover, a caregiver is always more courteous, skillful and honest than anyone other. He knows things better as it’s a caregiver`s job. A caregiver just cares if you don’t have enough time.

Why one should hire a professional caregiver when a spouse can do it. Yeah a spouse can do the little jobs, but for how long? Long term Home Care can take very long time. You may help him in Lifting, bathing, dressing, diapering, toileting and helping with walking but a professional caregiver is always better than you in this service. Moreover, a spouse may face errant behavior because of dementia or depression. And you can’t negate that bathing them and cleaning them is a hard thing to do. Here comes a caregiver that helps not only a disabled person but also to you and whole family.

So I advise you: don’t take risk, don’t waste your time in thinking. Just hire some Professional Home Caregiver for your love ones before it’s late.

  • 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.
