Happy Father's Day from Health Force of Georgia
Father’s Day takes on a different significance when Dad is the one who needs help, rather than the one who is giving the help. He is loved no less, but the Father’s Day gifts and plans may be different. No longer may Dad be able to go golfing or have the need to dress up with a new tie. So, what can you do to make this Father’s Day special for the man who made your life special?
Being there one-on-one is the best thing. Being face-to-face and communicating with Dad will let him know that you love him and care about his wellbeing. Maybe you can grill out together or sit and watch an old movie together. Focus on what Dad can still do and enjoy. The time spent with Dad is much more important than any material gift you could give. Reminisce about events and family times from the past. Recent memories are the first to go and you might ask Dad to tell you about an event or friends from many years ago. The most important thing you can do is make your Dad feel loved.
As Dad ages and his needs change, you may find that you need additional assistance in caring for him. Keeping Dad at home where he is most comfortable might require someone that can visit more often than you can to help Dad to keep living independently. At first, you might just have someone take him grocery shopping or help with preparing meals. It might be that Dad needs help with personal care and getting dressed. Dad might have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease and be progressively losing more mental capacity. This might mean that you need specially trained home health care workers to come in weekly or even daily because you do not have the training or time to do this yourself.
Health Force of Georgia knows that not everyone needs the same level of care to remain at home to avoid moving to an assisted care living facility. We have trained professionals that can take care of many complex medical conditions and we have caregivers who can provide personalized home care services. Our caregivers are Georgia-licensed and fully screened before being allowed into your home including: complete background check, employment records verification, health records check and they are bonded and insured.
Maybe this Father’s Day you can give Dad the gift of some help. Give us a call and tell us how we can help Dad to keep living in his home. Happy Father’s Day from Health Force of Georgia.
