Leave It To Me-Adult Home Services Agency

A Growing Population

  By the year 2030, the population over the age of 65 is expected to triple the number it is now. As the generations pass by, experts believe that this number will continue to increase. This phenomena is due to the fact that medical advances have increased the lifespan of most adults. However, with this ever increasing population, there are some problems that will be faced as time passes by.

Over half of the people age 65 or older, will require some sort of assistance to get everyday tasks completed. This number increases as a person gets older. They may need help with ADLs (activities of daily living), such as bathing and grooming. Others will need help with remembering to take their medications on time or to eat the right types of foods. Then, there are those that will need help with housework, personal errands, and meal preparations. Some might even need a little companionship if they spend much of their time alone. It is common practice to place someone with these types of needs into a nursing home or assisted living facility, however experts agree that sometimes the best places for these individuals is in their home surrounded by their own things. But how is that possible? This is where Leave It To Me comes in.

A Different Type of Service

Leave It To Me-Adult Home Services Agency, is based in Waterloo New York. This small agency, established just this year, focuses on helping the senior population with everyday tasks in the home so that they can remain independent surrounded by the things and people that they love so dearly. Leave It To Me is not a home health agency, but instead a home services agency. They do everything that a home health agency is not there to do. With the combination of aid from a home health agency and a home services agency, a person who would otherwise be condemned to a nursing home, can remain at home, living as independent and happy as possible.

Leave It To Me has four areas of focus. The first is personal errands. They will shop, pick up medications, transport to social activities, pick up/drop of dry cleaning, make bank deposits, run to the post office, and remind clients to take their medications. They can do these errands for the client or take the client to do the errands themselves.

The second area of focus is housekeeping. They will come in and do all of the things around the house that one cannot do for themselves, or who have a hard time getting it done. Dishes, vacuuming, dusting, cleaning bathrooms, washing windows, sweeping, mopping, and even light lawn care are common areas of service.

Meal preparation is sometimes a difficult time for most and thus, Leave It To Me also performs this service. They will prepare healthy, well-balanced meals for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. If one has a sweet tooth, they will even prepare baked goods. If meals are needed for future use, they also offer a service that pre-makes meals that can be used at a future date.

Lastly, this small company also offers companionship. To some experts, this is the glue that holds people together. Socializing and being with other people, to some, is one of the most enjoyable aspects of life. Whether it be reading out loud, playing a card game or completing a puzzle, companionship can really lighten the hearts of so many. Just to know that someone is there, caring about you can really make all the difference in the world.

Get Back To Life

Getting older should be a time in life that is embraced, and not feared. It should be a time when one can sit back, relax, and enjoy his or her life so far and not have to worry about what the days ahead have in store. Leave It To Me allows older adults the chance for just that.

Leave It To Me is also perfect for adults that are facing life's most difficult challenges like disability or chronic illness. The services are also great for the adult caregiver who has to look after an elderly family member or friend, but who doesn't have the time to get it all done. What about the busy working adult who just doesn't have enough hours in the day to see that all of life's little tasks are taken care of. Whatever a person's situation, Leave It To Me has a solution. The best part is, everything is done with the client's wants, desires, wishes, and interests in mind.
