What Are the Signs That a Person Needs Home Care?


Being independent is essential to every person. As we reach adulthood, this becomes one of our ultimate goals. Nothing is as empowering as being able to live on our own and take care of ourselves. Although independence means so much to adults, it may not be ideal for everyone. This holds especially true for those who require home care services.

Living on their own may not be ideal for the health and safety of homebound patients. Whatever their medical conditions are, it is important to keep in mind that they are not in their best health to be able to properly take care of themselves. Homebound patients are still prone to accidents even if they are in their abode.

To help ensure the safety of patients, getting the help of a healthcare service provider in Hawaii is the best solution.

Not all patients are the same. Some have greater needs than others. This is why it is important to look out for signs that show whether or not it is time for them to get the help of healthcare professionals.

Look out for these tell-tale signs that a person needs home care:

  • Mobility problems
    Having difficulties with physical functions is a clear sign that a person needs assistance.
  • Lack of self-care
    Poor hygiene signifies that a person struggles in taking care of himself/herself.
  • Sudden weight changes
    Sudden weight loss or weight gain can be a sign of health problems.
  • Struggle with housekeeping
    The condition of the environment that a person is staying in reflects his/her well-being.

Have you noticed the abovementioned signs in your loved ones?

Don’t hesitate to refer them to Helping Hands Health Care, a home care service provider in Hawaii.

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.
