Transitions in Senior Life

Last Updated on Thursday, 03 July 2014 12:21 Written by Administrator Thursday, 03 July 2014 12:05

Transitions in living situations are challenging at any stage of life but are especially tough on seniors due to the state of their physical, emotional, and cognitive health. A big change for someone in their 40s is a speed bump in life. For seniors, a big change can be traumatic. After a lifetime of working hard, seniors often feel out of control and fearful as they start to lose their independence. A lot is at stake for everyone involved and seniors need tremendous support in making the right decision. Consider these scenarios:

#1: The senior stays at home with homecare services

The homecare option allows the senior to “age in place” and provides tremendous flexibility. When deciding between privately hired help vs. a home care agency, consider the following:

  • A privately hired individual does not go through the stringent hiring process a good agency requires. Agencies must adhere to state and federal regulations (annual criminal checks among others) to ensure the safety of the clients
  • Although the cost of a homecare agency is higher than privately hired help, the risk of the senior getting sued is removed if the caregiver gets hurt on the job
  • Hours can be increased or decreased anytime
  • The senior will receive individualized care based on their needs and interests
  • Perhaps the best part of great homecare is the companionship the senior will enjoy 

    Transitions


Typically, after the initial resistance wears off, seniors wonder why they didn’t set this up earlier.  The article "Choosing a Homecare Agency with Confidence" published in WISER LIVING Winter/Spring 2014 provides a comprehensive list to use when comparing agencies. To see the article, call us at 603-483-8999 and we will send you a free electronic copy.

Happy 10th Anniversary to Us!

Written by Administrator Thursday, 26 June 2014 14:32

In 2004, one remarkable woman decided to make a difference in the lives of seniors wishing to age at home in NH. Debra Desrosiers, with the full support of her husband and business partner, Ron Desrosiers, opened New Hampshire's first Visiting Angels. Since then, Visiting Angels of Auburn NH has helped thousands of families by providing non-medical homecare to seniors in the greater Manchester, Concord, and Salem areas.

Their business started on Debra and Ron's kitchen table and grew through tremendous dedication. Debra and Ron, along with their full time office staff, now work out of their custom built 3,500 square foot office in Auburn New Hampshire. Their caregivers consist of over 100 Angels who service clients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.  

On June 12, 2014, Visiting Angels of Auburn NH celebrated their 10th Anniversary at the Puritan Backroom. Over 100 people gathered to celebrate the company's remarkable success over the past decade.  The theme of the party was "The Power of 10."  Debra led the attendees down memory lane with pictures and stories highlighting the most significant milestones, toughest hurdles, memorable clients, community service projects, key partnerships, triumphs, and funniest moments.

We Want to Know...What Makes our Clients Smile?

Smile Lips 2013

One of the joys of our agency is the person-centered care approach we take with our clients. Yes, we take our "typical" home care agency training seriously to ensure client safety, cleanliness, transportation to appointments, nutritional needs, and other important factors of activities of daily living. Additionally, the Alzheimer's Association Habilitation Therapy training (mandatory for all our employees) sets us apart from other home care agencies. But beyond these trainings is what we call "person-centered care" approach. Joyful companionship is a very important part of our services. Our approach may be a little different in that we encourage our staff to discover our clients' GREATNESS.  What did they do (or are still doing) in some capacity as professionals, as heroes, as parents, as intellects, as ... people? What activities, hobbies, or passions make our clients SMILE? Is that "built into" your care plan? If not, here is an opportunity to do just that.
