When in Doubt, Contact Home Care Services in Boca Raton FL

Myra wasn’t sure what she was going to do when she received the call that her mother had suffered a stroke.  She didn’t know what to think or where to turn, and when she was driving to the hospital, she was thinking of all of the worst-case scenarios.  She kept picturing her mother withering away in some nursing home where she was being ignored, and Myra couldn’t visit her enough.  She hadn’t yet thought about home care services, so when she got to the hospital and was able to talk to the doctor, that was one of the first things that he mentioned.Home Care Services Boca Raton FL

He told her that she should contact an in home health care services agency to find the right level of care for her mother.  Yet Myra kept thinking about the dire notion of a nursing home.  She absolutely didn’t want her mother to have to live in a place like that (not that Myra actually had ever been to one, but she had seen them on TV and in the movies and they didn’t look too nice).

So she was thinking that she would take care of her mother herself.  She would either move her mother into her home, or she would arrange to stop by every day after work to check on her.

Her mother spent about a week in the hospital and when she was scheduled to be released, the doctor asked Myra what she had planned for her mother’s recovery, and care at home.  She didn’t want to tell the doctor, because she wasn’t sure she was doing the right thing.  Finally, he sat her down in his office, and spoke to her about her concerns.

“Your mother will be fine,” he had said, “as long as she has the right level of care.  Do you have that level of experience that she needs?”

She admitted that she didn’t have a clue what she was going to do.  She told the doctor about her concerns with regard to nursing home care, and she chuckled and told her not to rely on the movies to get her information.  He then told her that’s why he recommended home care services.

“An in home care provider is someone who has the experience and dedication to support your mother and make sure that she is safe and healthy while living at home. That’s why it’s called in home health care services.”

Myra was finally convinced to contact the home care services agency within her mother’s town and she was glad she did. With all of her doubt, she avoided doing that, but it’s what she should have done from the beginning.
