There are many different reasons why a family member could need consistent supervision and care. It could be a debilitating disease such as, dementia, Alzheimer’s, cerebral palsy, or something simple as a broken leg or hip. The responsibility of caring for this person will usually fall on one person’s shoulders. This can be a huge load for one person to bear alone.

If you are the one person whose has taken on the responsibility of caring for your loved one, you don’t have many other options. You can place them in a nursing home, or walk away from the responsibility and hope someone else picks up the load. For many of you those are not options you even want to consider. However you do have one other option you can consider – home care.

Home care finds a qualified person to help with the responsibility of caring for your loved one. You decide when you need them the most whether it is help with your loved one on a daily basis or maybe just one or two days a week. The Caregiver can provide basic” companion care” or more extensive hands on “personal care” needs with all the activities of daily living we all take for granted.

In the Cincinnati, Ohio area, there are several home care professional services that will introduce you to a member of their qualified staff. You will have the opportunity to speak with this person to decide if they are the right person to fit the needs of you and your loved one. If not, the service will send someone else for you to interview.

Before enlisting the assistance of one of these services you may need to discuss this with the loved one you are caring for and get their okay. It will be difficult to leave them in someone else’s care, especially when you have been doing it yourself for a long time. However, these services will work with you. You can stay at the house to watch over the caregiver for their first few visits to help them get used to the routine you have worked out. Any special needs you and your loved one have can be worked out with the Care Company and the caregiver provided by the service.
