Mom Looks Forward to Their Help

When my mother fell a few months ago, my brother and I started talking to see which of our homes she would move into. We knew she would not be able to stay at home while she recuperated from her hip surgery as a result of her injuries. Both of us are single and work full time, but he travels more for work than I do. Because of that, it was decided she would move in with me. I take care of her when I am home, and I contacted a company that provides senior home care in long island to take care of her when I am at work. They handle all of her hygiene needs since I don’t have time to help her with a shower in the mornings. They also help her with her therapy exercises. They are very basic but she still needs help in getting them done. I feel much better knowing that the home care workers who come on a daily basis to help her are trained medical professionals. She feels extremely comfortable with each one of them. While she usually gets the same person, there has been a time or two when she has had someone else come in to help her. They also help to administer her medication since she is also a diabetic. While all of this is important, I think what she values above all else is the companionship. While this is their job, these professionals are very personable and they make my mom look forward to their visits. I have seen them in action, and I think I am going to have them continue to visit Mom when she ends up moving back into her own apartment after she is healed. She is not going to move around as good as she did before her fall, and it will give us both peace of mind knowing they are there to help her.
