As difficult as it is to imagine, your parents won’t always be able to do the activities they once could. Going to get a haircut, making dinner, and doing the laundry are tasks that we often take for granted until we reach an age where they become too difficult to manage on our own. As an adult child, you probably find yourself picking up these tasks to help your loved one out, but it’s becoming hard to balance with the responsibilities that you already have. If this sounds familiar, it may be time to hire a professional in-home caretaker. Explore the benefits below. 

Assistance with Activities of Daily Living

Professional in-home caregivers can help your aging loved one take care of their regular household duties such as laundry, vacuuming, dishwashing, changing linens, making their bed, taking out the trash, and organizing cabinets and closets. In-home caregivers can also assist with medication reminders, healthy meal preparation, and transportation. 

Personalized Care

The main benefit of non-medical, in-home care, especially when compared to nursing homes, is that the care is customized to fit the unique needs of your family. At HomeSpark, we perform a Home Safety Assessment and meet with you to craft a personalized in-home care plan, ensuring that we have the time to truly get to know your aging loved one as an individual 

Convenience and Comfort

More adults over the age of 65 are choosing to age within the comfort and familiarity of their own homes. In-home care allows aging individuals to maintain their independence and prevents them from having to uproot their life as they have known it for years. 

Reliable Care

In-home care is reliable and trustworthy, especially when compared to alternatives such as nursing homes, assisted living, and senior community programs. Caregivers go through a robust training and hiring process and participate in extended learning opportunities throughout their careers. Just as importantly, they genuinely care about your aging loved one's well-being. 


You want the best possible care for your aging family member, but it’s also important to consider and plan for the financial impact that finding care will have. Fortunately, in-home care is more affordable than traditional nursing home care without sacrificing the quality of the care that is being provided. 

Dedicated Caretaker

Having a dedicated caretaker has numerous emotional benefits for aging individuals in non-medical, in-home care. Caregivers take the time to get to know those in their care and form a positive relationship with your loved one. When you can’t be there with your loved one, you can trust that their caregiver will be spending quality time with them, engaging in conversation, learning about their history, playing games with them, or getting them out for walks in their local community. 

If you are concerned about your aging loved one's health and safety, it’s time to have a conversation with them about the need for non-medical, in-home care. Contact HomeSpark today to learn more about how we care for people.
