When most people think of homecare, they think of elderly folks in need of extra help to remain in their homes.
But some people in need of homecare are actually quite young. Homecare is not just for seniors.
He saw a lot of action and because of some explosions that were set off near him in combat, he suffers from hearing loss and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Now that he is back in the United States and no longer on active duty, he has enlisted the help of homecare for his everyday life.
Angela and her husband, Tom, have four young children.
Two years ago, Tom started having trouble with his motor skills. He would drop things unexpectedly. He would have unexplainable cramping in his muscles. Neither symptom made sense since he was young and healthy. His doctor ordered some tests and it was discovered he has ALS better known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. There is no cure, only a slow decline of total muscle function. Angela still wants her husband at home for as long as possible so she has welcomed the help of homecare for this season of life.
Linda was in a serious car accident.
It’s a miracle that she is still living. However, her head was injured so she has to relearn everyday tasks. While she is recovering, she moved back to her parent’s house. Her parents arranged for homecare to take care of her needs during the day while they are at work. Linda is working with therapy to hopefully regain enough ability to live on her own again someday. But for now, her family is able to function because of the services of homecare.
