Hear from Clients We’ve Served in Franklin

“I have used Right at Home for my mother's care since she can no longer take care of herself. I do not live close to her so I found this service to be exceptional in helping my mom out on a daily basis. They are at her home to give her her medications, prepare her meals, help her dress, bathe, remember to use her walker, clean her house and wash her clothes. They also spend lots of time talking with her and playing music that she enjoys listening and singing to. She has the same couple of caregivers on a daily basis, and is so happy when they are there. The home office staff visits her home weekly and is in contact with me regularly. If I need to speak to them, it is never a problem getting in touch with them. Being so far from my mom, Right at Home has truly given me peace of mind with her daily care.”

Daughter of a current client in Franklin, WI

“The care for my mother included needing help getting meals ready, they spent time with her, and made sure she had lunch. They were very good. They were very considerate, kept me informed of everything with my mother, and they were just such pleasant people.”

FAQs About In-home Care Services in Franklin, WA

In-home care seeks to meet individuals where they are at. Today, it is much more common for elderly individuals to maintain their independence in their senior years. Staying at home can help continue that sense of freedom, but presents safety concerns for the individual. Senior in-home care provides a solution that allows an individual to maintain their independence, while also getting the support they need with meals, transportation, and other daily activities.

Some seniors don’t like the reduction of freedom that comes with moving into a senior living facility or retirement home. It can also become more difficult to visit with family members or complete daily activities with independence. In-home care ensures seniors still get the support they need, where they’re most comfortable.

Discussing senior home care can be a difficult subject. It’s important to approach the conversation with your loved one the right way. It’s never a good idea to become accusatory or aggressive. This period of change, including losing some freedom they used to enjoy, can be a bit scary for some seniors. It’s important to approach the conversation with empathy.

It’s a good idea to ask your loved one how they feel. Explore what’s most important to your loved one, and be sure to hear them out. As much as you may want to jump in and help, it’s key to respect their desires. If you observe behaviors that may indicate safety concerns, it’s important to ensure your loved one gets help, without overstepping your bounds. Try to avoid telling a loved one what you think they need, and instead offer to help with their concerns.

As individuals age, it can become more difficult to complete daily tasks alone. If your loved one is no longer able to feed themselves, get dressed, go to the store alone, or handle other necessities, it may be time to involve the Franklin, Wisconsin senior home care team at Right at Home.

Explore more signs your elderly loved one may need additional help.

While you may expect some changes in your elderly loved one as they age, certain differences can point to dementia or Alzheimer’s. When you notice these, it’s important to help your loved one get support.

Early dementia warning signs may include:

  • Repetitive memory loss, especially forgetting what month or season it is
  • Inability to make plans or problem solve
  • Difficulty completing daily activities
  • Struggling to communicate their thoughts
  • Drastic mood changes or sudden apathy
