The Nanny Check

Your children are the most precious and important people in your life. You treasure them more than life itself. So, when it’s time to hire a nanny or babysitter, how do you decide who will protect your child as much as you do? Access Investigative Services has the answers.  Vetting your child’s nanny is one of our specialties.

We’ve all heard horror stories about children found wandering the streets unattended because the babysitter fell asleep.  Or, kids were harmed or neglected by a nanny.   A background check of your nanny is not overreacting. It’s being safe.

Why Choose Non-Medical Home Care?

When your loved one reaches a certain age, they may need a little extra support with day-to-day activities, and these may or may not include home health services. But if they only need assistance with things like bathing, dressing, meal preparation, and light housekeeping, why would you pay extra for services you don’t need?

This is where non-medical home care may be the right option for you. Professional caregivers can assist with the daily goings-on of life and provide peace of mind for you and your family. Common services include:

  • Personal Care
  • Transportation to appointments
  • Medication prompts
  • Recovery care after surgeries
  • End-of-life care
  • Respite support for caregivers

Whether you need someone to keep your loved one company while you are at work, or maybe you need 24-hour live in care, a non-medical home care service such as Legacy In-Home Care can provide these services and much more. They offer personalized and unique care plans tailored to your lifestyle and specific needs. Patient and experienced caregivers can even provide support with dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Legacy In-Home Care aims to help seniors maintain their independence right in the comfort and safety of home. Just because you are getting older does not mean you should have to sacrifice your quality of life, and they understand that no two situations are the same. Some may need more assistance than others, and Legacy’s highly-trained caregivers are ready to give all the time and support you require.

Legacy is the trusted choice for families and seniors in Florida’s Marion, Sumter, and Lake counties. If you feel that non-medical in-home care is the right decision for you and your family, consider Legacy In-Home Care.

Respecting Parents As They Age

Many of us will reach retirement age with good health intact and excellent mental clarity. For those who don’t, there is help available.

Currently, the largest population of seniors will be Baby Boomers born between 1946 and 1964. This population is expected to double by the year 2050. The time to plan is sooner rather than later.

But, aging is not a bad thing. Many seniors continue on with daily activities as if they were decades younger. Healthy means happy, and good health is the key to a fabulous retirement. Make sure mom and dad are getting proper healthcare and that they are getting adequate nutrition.

Adult children should never approach aging parents in a negative manner. Aging is not a disease. The young adult still lives in the minds of seniors and we should do what we can to keep it there. A simple question such as “so mom, would you like us to help you with anything? Are you doing okay?” is all that is needed in most cases to begin the conversation. If you haven’t been around much in previous years, suggesting a retirement “home or community” may be met with resistance. Here are some positive suggestions:

– Assess the situation often. If all looks well, it probably is.
– If possible, share concerns with other siblings.
– Ask important questions regarding living wills, healthcare decisions, and power-of-attorney.
– Make sure parents remain active in clubs, church, or visiting friends.
– And by all means, stay in touch! Love is the best medicine.

And, when help is needed, Legacy In-Home Care can make the difference between peace and tranquility and total chaos. We offer assistance for every stage of aging. We love what we do – so will you! Contact Legacy In Home Care today.
