How Home Care Can Support a Loved One Who is Hard of Hearing

Many individuals plan to live at home for as long as possible as they grow older, even with changes in health, mobility and cognition. Seniors’ desire to live independently at home is often a great idea but can become a burden for family members as they get older and stop being able to hear as well as they used to.

Fortunately, home care providers such as Griswold Home Care are close by - we’ve been in Worcester county since 2001. Our home caregivers understand that clients who are hard of hearing require patience and a quiet environment where it’s easier to communicate. Custom home care plans tailored for specific needs will help them stay comfortable in their home by providing services that range from light housekeeping to meal preparation, transportation and personal care. All of our caregivers are employees of Griswold Home Care and are routinely given continuing education modules in the home care landscape so we can provide comprehensive and current home care services.

Having a caregiver scheduled for regular visits will help prevent feelings of loneliness that come with hearing loss and give an older loved one something to look forward to. With quality home care in place, your senior loved one will:

  • Maintain dignity and independence
  • Be able to stay involved with family
  • Receive services one-on-one rather than waiting for their turn as is often the case in a nursing home or facility
  • Stay safe with a caregiver who can help in the case of slips or falls
  • Get outside in appropriate weather
  • Transportation to various appointments, social activities or errands

As America’s most established home care provider, Griswold Home Care continues to set standards for aging in place. After reaching out to inquire about services, one of our care coordinators will call to ask you several questions to get an idea of the specific challenges that a loved one in need of care is facing. We can then use to place the best possible caregiver, or caregivers, with our proprietary CarePairing System™. We take great pride in accomplishing this while keeping costs reasonable for the client.

There comes a time when family members need to take responsibility for a loved one if they are having problems hearing or other things that don’t allow them to care for themselves like they used to. The caregivers at Griswold Home Care are available to help families care for a loved one in Worcester and the surrounding towns. Our goal will always be to refer a caregiver we would be happy to have in our own home. Contact us today at (508) 917-6649 to learn more about how our Home Care Services can help your family.
