The Truth About What Happens When People Come Into Care ‘Too Soon’

– No more accepting the diminshed appeal of living alone

– Have the leisure of choosing the best home

In a moment I’ll go into detail about what can happen when someone comes into care early, but first I want to touch on a delicate point that is sometimes blocked out of mind.

Everyone likes to live in their own home. I do & I’m sure you do too. However, for older people the experience can often lose its appeal as their health declines.

Often their spouse may have died. While they may always have their family, they may still feel lonely or isolated. Folks entering their late 80s will notice their social groups decline.
Older people living alone can suffer from:

  • Poor physical health
  • Loneliness
  • Depression
  • A lack of structure in their day
  • Poor diet and fluid intake

What often happens then is some kind of crisis – a fall, a hospital admission…

In a moment I’ll go into detail about what can happen when someone comes into care early, but first I want to touch on a delicate point that is sometimes blocked out of mind.

Everyone likes to live in their own home. I do & I’m sure you do too. However, for older people the experience can often lose its appeal as their health declines.

Often their spouse may have died. While they may always have their family, they may still feel lonely or isolated. Folks entering their late 80s will notice their social groups decline.
If they have memory problems they may be putting themselves at risk. They may be contacting family members around the clock out of sheer anxiety.

You then may need to find a suitable care home for your Mum in an urgent fashion. This will limit your choices & choosing the wrong care home could prove even more detrimental for her overall health going forward.

 

We were delighted when mum settled easily and happily into her new home. Mum seems to have got involved in many things.” – Kathryn P.

So can it be a problem when people come into a care home too soon?

In short, no. This is a common concern, with a lot of guilt surrounding it. But let me clear up some important points about this.

It is far better to find a care home that both you & your Mum will love. When your Mum comes into care at this early stage she gets looked after properly.

The care she receives at home tends to be very hit & miss. Often with 2 or 3 people trying to manage several different needs. It’s messy & priorities get missed.

At Hopton Cottage we will speak directly with Mum’s GP, District Nurses or Hospital Services to make sure all her physical care needs are sorted quickly & easily.

For Mum’s mental health needs we will speak directly with Memory Services & Community Mental Health Services so you will have nothing to worry about. The right people help Mum in the right way at the right time.

We have skilled care managers who can identify health problems & help them to be addressed with access to relevant services. They can then manage this going forward with resident and family involvement.
They will have lovely care staff who look in on them regularly and will help in any way needed. The same staff week in week out who they get to know and trust. They become part of the home and are loved by their fellow residents and staff alike.
If you can see why it’s so important to get your Mum into the right care home earlier rather than later, then please consider Hopton Cottage Care Home. I know you’ll be making a smart move.
Our “Home for Life” guarantee means that when your Mum comes to live with us, that’s it. She stays living with us. If your funds for her ever run out, we’ll continue to look after your Mum and reduce her fees so that her remaining time here can be funded by Kirklees Council.
Remember you can always call us with any questions or concerns about your Mum.
