Home Care This Winter

21 Nov 2022

Home care, whether full-time or part-time, is very important, especially this winter. With increased living costs and electricity being more expensive than ever, more people will be struggling than ever before. However, it doesn’t have to be. At Hands on Care, we’re experts on providing high-quality care to our customers in Telford, Shrewsbury and the surrounding areas. 

In this article from Hands on Care, we’re going to go through the reasons why home care will be more important than ever.  

Read on to learn more!

Help Isn’t Just For Nurses 

The first reason why you should consider home care this winter is perhaps the most fundamental: having a carer at your home means that you’re not isolated from your friends and family during the holidays. This means you can enjoy a close holiday with your family members this Christmas time.  

Help With Monitoring Temperature

The most important thing this winter will be monitoring the temperature in your home and ensuring that you stay at a comfortable temperature. 

Doctors have known about the issues affecting body temperature in older people for a long time, and letting your body temperature fall dramatically can lead to serious health problems. So, as you can imagine, it’s important that you ensure that your body temperature is maintained. 

Having a home carer can help you do that. 

Help Staying Social 

No one really likes going out when it’s cold, regardless of whether you’re 3 or 93. But humans are social animals, and we need social interaction in order to maintain our mental health. Having a carer can not only help you stay social through interaction, they can also help you with mobility, ensuring that you don’t just stay cooped up in your home. 

Help Cleaning Your Home

The final reason why home care is going to be important this winter is, quite frankly, homes get stuffy during the winter period. Having a carer – one who can help you with cleaning duties – is a great benefit. Not only does it save you from over exerting yourself cleaning your home, but it also means that your home can be cleaned far more regularly.
