Can an aide help you stay in your home longer?

| Feb 10, 2021 | Long-Term Care Planning |

For many, long-term care planning means considering things like nursing homes and assisted living centers. You can work on all of this as part of your estate plan. You know that you could have many healthy years ahead of you, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that living on your own will be possible or, perhaps, safe. So you make a plan in advance to address potential needs in the future.

However, you don’t want to leave the home that you love. You’ve lived there for decades. You raised your children there. Are there any ways to get the care you need, on a long-term basis, without having to leave?

The benefits of in-home care

There are potential options, such as in-home care aides who come to your house. They are not doctors or nurses, but they can help with many of the same things the staff at an assisted living center would help with:

  • Dressing
  • Showering
  • Cooking
  • Running errands
  • Driving
  • Shopping
  • Cleaning

These are just a few examples, but they essentially give you a way to safely do tasks that may be difficult on your own. Perhaps you’re worried about something like forgetting to turn off the stove or slipping and falling during a shower. You don’t need care around the clock and most of the time you spend in your home is safe and comfortable. An in-home aide allows you to stay there and still get the type of help you do need, when you need it.

Of course, if things change and you need more consistent care, you can always move to an assisted living center at a later date. But using a service like this may give you a few more years in the family home, and that’s something you’re really going to love.

Exploring your options

If nothing else, this should help to show you why it’s so important to explore all of your options. At our elite firm, we are helpful and knowledgeable, and we can assist you with every aspect of estate planning so that you get exactly what you want and need out of the process.
