Chubbuck, Idaho In-Home Care
Staying at your home as you get older is called “aging in place.” This allows you to continue to live your life the way you have for decades. Ninety percent of adults over the age of 65 prefer to do this to maintain their independence. In-home care can help the elderly to age in place, and with that come many benefits if done properly.
As your elderly loved ones start to age, it may be time to think about how to ensure their wellbeing is taken care of, even when you are not able to be there. Many elderly are fully capable and able to care for themselves, however accidents can happen, and are more likely as their body ages and is not able to function with the energy it used to. If your elderly loved one desires to still maintain their independence but lives alone, you may want to consider Chubbuck, Idaho In-Home Care with The Gables.
What Is In-Home Care
The Gables provides the happy medium help that you need. Some people find it frustrating when their family members are needing a little bit of help, but do not need full assistance yet. In-home care provides just that. Our care providers will come to check on your loved ones to make sure they are okay, when you are unable to do so. We often find that family members are able to check in on their elderly often, but during the work day, they are left alone for many hours by themselves. We are able to provide assistance for as many hours as desired, based on what your loved ones’ needs are. Our goal is to help your loved one to maintain their independence while living at home, without the worry about an accident happening while you are unable to be with them.
What Our Chubbuck, Idaho In-Home Care Provides
There are different areas of care, as well as different levels of care that you can choose from when it comes to our in-home care services. For those only needing companionship, or those needing hands on assistance, we provide everything you need and everything in-between.
In order to keep the mind sharp, one would need to make sure their mind is regularly stimulated. The presence of a caring friend can help to stimulate the mind with meaningful conversations. As we get older, our minds and brains start to deteriorate more quickly, so it is important that our loved ones are not left by themselves to be lonely. If your loved one lives alone, you will want to consider companion care to help them to feel less lonely and to brighten their day with friendly company. It is more likely for depression to develop for those who live alone.
Having a companion, even for just a few hours a day, can help those feelings of loneliness subside. To give your loved ones variety to their day, our providers are able to provide them with meaningful conversations, give our clients something to look forward to each day, and ensure the safety and wellbeing of our clients. It truly is amazing what some friendly company can do for our souls.
Our personal care services with The Gables in Chubbuck, Idaho provide more hands-on help.

Chores and Cleaning
You can either add on chores and cleaning onto your current plan or if your loved one is very independent and just needs some extra help around the house with cleaning, we can help with just those needs.

We are also able to assist with any yard work that might be done as well. We believe that a clean and tidy house can help the mind to be at ease.
