Home Instead After the Holidays: Why Home Instead’s Phones Ring Off the Hook in the Post-Holiday Season

Posted by Jason Vyhlidal , 12/9/2019 3:00 PM

Going home to be with family for Christmas is an annual tradition many people look forward to every year. It's a chance for relatives returning from afar to eat the foods remembered so fondly from childhood, catch up with old friends, and spend time with older family members they may not see on a regular basis.

 

It's also a time when many people discover their aging parents are struggling with the daily tasks and chores that younger people often take for granted. The trip home may highlight for adult children that their parents are getting older and that in order to remain healthy and happy in their homes, they'll need some outside help.

 

Finding the right person to care for an aging loved one can be a difficult task. The person hired to care for an aging adult needs to be able to compassionately and effectively oversee a myriad of tasks from ensuring mom takes her medication on time, to taking dad shopping for food, to helping mom and dad around the house. The aging adult needs to feel comfortable with this new addition to their lives and the adult child who has hired the caregiver needs to feel reassured that the service the caregiver is providing is reliable, trustworthy, and considerate.

 

Luckily, the Home Instead Senior Care® network is there to help. The local Home Instead franchise office is often an adult child's first phone call. There they will find a team of knowledgeable and caring people ready to help them find the right CAREGiverSM for their family's needs. In addition, the local Home Instead Senior Care franchise office often provides the family with a wealth of information that helps make it easier for the aging adult to age in place.

 

Once the CAREGiver is in place, the adult children often find that they are given peace of mind, knowing their aging loved one is taken care of. Thanks to their Home Instead Senior Care franchise office, adult children discover they are able to enjoy their relationship with their parents again. The next time the family gets together, the adult child can feel a sense of relief, making the holiday season even more joyful for everyone. And they are also able to return home after a busy holiday season with less guilt and feeling more comfortable knowing their loved ones are in good hands. It all simply started with that one post-holiday phone call to the local Home Instead Senior Care franchise office.
