Perhaps you have noticed some subtle signs that your parents are not able to keep up with some of the everyday tasks that they once used to do. It can be a difficult conversation to have with your parent if you haven’t already broached the topic, but many seniors are open to the idea of having personalized care and services in their home because it allows them to retain their independence. Here are some signs that it may be time to consider private hospital care for your elderly parent(s).
Unable to Keep Up with Daily Tasks. This may be the most obvious (and yet subtle) way to determine if your parent could benefit from private hospital care. Has your parent been forgetting to eat? Perhaps the dishes are piling up in the sink, food has been left to spoil in the fridge or he or she has not been taking out the trash.
Forgetfulness. Has your parent been forgetting to take his or her medication or taking the wrong dosages? Perhaps your parent has left their mail to pile up or has late payment notices because he or she has not been paying bills on time. Your parent may also be missing appointments. These are all signs that your parent may benefit from private hospital care.
Uncertainty with Normal Tasks. Perhaps your parents are having trouble remembering how to turn on the stove or doing other day-to-day tasks that used to be easy. These are symptoms that should be evaluated by a doctor.
Decline in Overall Health. Perhaps your parent has unexplained bruises or they have lost weight recently. Has their diet been poor? Have they been in an increased number of car accidents due to declining vision?
Mobility Issues. Are your parents having trouble getting around their home? Perhaps their balance is off or they have trouble getting up from the couch. Mobility issues can become a serious cause for concern as they are at an increased risk of falling.
Mentally, your parents may have a loss of interest in activities that once consumed their time. Perhaps they are having a lot of mood swings lately. Similarly, if your parents are struggling with personal care (such as showering) and this has become noticeable, these are also signs that your parents could benefit from private hospital care.

What Our Customer Are Saying
Mom mom just passed away. The team at C-care was like extended family to us.....Raymond in particular. He always answered the phone, regardless of the time or day. No answering machines! He made sure he understood our needs and sent the PSW with the right skill set, to meet those needs.
Mom had dementia. Even thru this past year with the challenges of Covid19, she always had a PSW that understood how to successfully handle someone with the unique needs that dementia brings. Now our needs have changed and we just require care for my dad. Raymond will re-evaluate how are needs have changed and ensure we have the best care money can buy. In my experience with 2 other agencies, C-Care is hands down a more nurturing, better accommodating, and more caring. Don't let fancy companies fool you!! C-care is the best!!
C-Care has supported the daily care of my parents in law for over 2 years. I have been impressed with the level of care, empathy and personal affection each care-giver has shown in support of my husband's ailing parents. I have personally interacted with several PSWs and I have felt they represented the highest level of professional and ethical behavior. I have professional experience of good hiring practices as a retired HR executive and I have been impressed with C-Care case management and patient care. Great management, great patient care professionals.
Our daughter underwent spinal surgery. When I spoke with Raymond at C-Care I was under a lot of stress, when we finished talking I felt I had chosen the right place for her support. Raymond handled everything perfectly, supplying us with excellent care, his staff at C-Care are the best! I recommend this company without hesitation. Thank you Raymond.
I can't speak highly enough of the people at C-Care. Raymond and his team are nothing short of super stars. Each and every staff member I connected with was incredibly professional, patient and caring. Raymond never disappointed helping to provide scheduling for both short and long term needs. I quite simply do not know how I would have coped without him and his team.
My father suffered from Parkinson's and dementia for several years and C-Care provided 24 hour in home care for the last two years of his life. Raymond, who is in charge of operations, is committed to ensuring every caregiver is a good fit for the families they support. We had a combination of full and part time PSWs taking care of my dad. They deserve more than 5 stars. They were all reliable, warm, professional and honest. I was so happy with the company, I employed their services again for an elderly gentleman under my guardianship who was still living alone in his home. They are extremely responsive and answer emails and phone calls 7 days a week late into the night.
We were extremely happy with the quality of the caregivers. Our father was hospitalized for a week and needed support around the clock at the hospital and for the first 2 weeks at home. Raymond and Lina provided excellent people who looked after our father competently but also with compassion and sensitivity. They were an important factor in his recovery.
