We all want to stay active, independent and in our own home for as many years as possible. Of course, this can naturally get harder to maintain over time.
Thankfully, there are some smart ways to make it easier. It turns out it could be an extremely wise move to seek out help a little earlier.
It’s easy to think of home care services as something purely for the elderly; for those who have already lost that independence. This is far from the reality.
In fact, the door is open for younger retirees to accept government-subsidised home care earlier, allowing them to keep that independence far longer.
Amana Living is now working with active over-60s in Western Australia to help make the most of this system.
At first, only the lowest-level services – such as simple weekly cleaning assistance or a home handyman – may be all you need.
As your needs change, your services can adapt. And should you require more assistance in the future, such as meal preparation or larger-scale health care, you will already have a coordinator who understands your needs. They can access the services you want, control for quality and manage your scheduling. So you have peace of mind and freedom to get on with life.
By accepting a little help today, you’ll be able to stay active and in your own home for many years to come.
