How Home Care Improves Senior Independence


Independence is a gift. To a senior person who will face a lot of difficulties brought by aging, this sense of freedom can be a treasure. Try to put yourself in the shoes of someone, who, after years and years of working without depending on anybody else, is suddenly subjected to an ailment or condition where they must need assistance with walking, eating, or dressing. This moment can be overwhelming.

As a Home Care Service Provider in Hawaii, we understand the great need for independence among our senior loved ones. So we do our best that in serving them, their sense of independence is still respected and dignified.

Allow us to help you see how the services provided in a home care setting can empower your aging loved one’s freedom.

  • They have a sense of their community.
    Because they can be receiving help and assistance at home, they can easily proceed with the activities and routines they do in their community. They know how to go to the grocery or which pharmacy to buy their medicines from. This familiarity gives them a sense of control in their situation which is very important in helping them feel like the aging years haven’t robbed much from them.
  • Their social circle is alive.
    Seniors can benefit from being surrounded by great friends and familiar neighbors. While a Healthcare Service Provider in Hawaii is helping out in their chores, medications, or housekeeping concerns, they can take their time staying updated with the neighborhood happenings. This knowledge can give them assurance that the people who care for them are very accessible.
  • They are staying in the place they love to call home.
    The feeling of home is associated with peace of mind, ownership, and enjoyment of familiarity. This sentiment can improve their mental health, empowering them to do things as they can, helping them to accomplish things in their own turf.
  • Their family relationship is strengthened.
    Being in close proximity to their children and grandchildren allows for more bonding moments. The more that they spend quality time with each other, the deeper their love and connection with one another grow. When providers of home care services are also helping out with the senior person’s chores, they can even have more time to spend with their family members. This ability to make time for their family on their own volition can be a reward to cherish in their independent lifestyle.
  • They can have an upper hand with the cost.
    Truly, receiving care at home is more affordable than when in a care facility as they still have to pay for the place along with all the medications and services. However, when they’re at home, they will only shell out for the services and medications and no longer with the location of care.

At Helping Hands Healthcare, we help you promote your aging loved one’s sense of independence as they stay safe and secure in their own abode.

The state of Hawaii has determined that most caregivers are considered employees and in order to LEGALLY hire and pay your OWN caregiver, you must have a company established with State and Federal tax ID numbers. In addition to their hourly pay you must also pay for Workers Compensation Insurance, Temporary Disability Insurance, General Liability Insurance, and if the caregiver works more than 20 hours per week you must also provide medical insurance for each caregiver. Therefore; choosing an established agency such as Helping Hands Healthcare is an affordable and easy solution that will save you time, money, and relief from being in violation of State and Federal Labor Laws.
