One of the hardest things about growing older is the loneliness and isolation felt by so many seniors. They have lost friends and family members, and their group of confidantes is dwindling. We all need human contact, someone to care about us and show affection, someone to listen to our concerns and provide emotional support, and someone to laugh at our jokes. That’s where I believe Luxe Homecare comes into play. We have dedicated our homecare agency to making the lives of our clients more fulfilling and independent.
The importance of our homecare givers and the void they fill in so many lives was recently brought home after having a meeting with Lynn and her mother, Evelyn, who is in her early 80s. In just the last two years Evelyn has lost two close friends and a sister. Her heartache is intense; you can see the sadness in her eyes. Lynn, her daughter, is concerned that her mother’s depression over these deaths of loved ones will end her life sooner. They came to speak to me about getting a caregiver who could also act as a companion for Evelyn. Lynn wanted someone who could help her mother navigate housework as well as take her to luncheons and other social events at the senior centers in the area. Evelyn had some requirements too. She didn’t want anyone who was pushy or rude, they had to have a great sense of humor, and they couldn’t drive like a maniac. I assured both Lynn and Evelyn that we could easily meet their specifications.
We are Serious about Matching Our Caregivers to Our Clients
At Luxe Homecare we meet with clients and determine their needs, personality, and likes and dislikes before matching a caregiver with them. We know how important it is to have these two individuals in sync with one another. A good fit between a home caregiver and client makes everyone feel safer and happier.
We matched our caregiver Louise with Evelyn, and from what I understand they are getting along famously. Louise has a mother Evelyn’s age and is beyond patient with her. They enjoy each other’s company, and, according to Evelyn, Louise is a careful driver. Lynn appreciates that we can be there for her mother when she can’t. It puts her mind at ease and allows her to spend more quality time with Evelyn.
