How To Accept Care Without Feeling Shame
There comes a time in everyone’s life when we need a little bit of help to live independently. It can be difficult to accept this reality, especially if you’re used to living on your own, taking care of yourself and maintaining your independence.
Most of the time, seniors end up needing assistance because of health problems and age. At Premier Personal Care, Inc., we work with seniors and their families to help them overcome feelings of shame and accept help through in-home care, elderly care and recovery home care.
Why You May Be Feeling Guilty About Taking Care Of Yourself
General conventional wisdom says that once you acknowledge the necessity for in-home care, it’ll help you get over any guilt or shame you may be feeling, but that’s not necessarily true. You may fully understand your need for assistance, but you still may feel guilty about taking care of yourself.
A common misunderstanding is that self-care is indulgent, that it’s something you have to do to make yourself feel good, but that’s simply not true.
Especially when it comes to your health, in-home care and maintaining your independence, accepting help isn’t about indulging. It’s about making sure you can stay healthy and sustain your preferred lifestyle.
A second common misconception is that self-care has to come at the expense of something else, that it has some sort of cost. But this isn’t necessarily true either — accepting in-home care or elderly care is about making sure you’re safe and healthy.
Nonmedical At-Home Care
Premier Personal Care, Inc., provides compassionate care in your home as you need it to make sure your life remains as normal as possible. We work with seniors who may be suffering from injuries or mental diseases or recovering from an accident. Whatever your situation may be, chances are our caregivers can offer assistance.
This type of service from Premier Personal Care, Inc., can help you maintain your independence comfortably in your own home. Whether you’re looking for companionship and conversation or need a bit of help with meal preparation or pet care, Premier Personal Care can provide those in-home care services as you need them.
Maintain Your Independence With Recovery Home Care
If you’re recovering from a debilitating illness or accident, our team can help make sure you’re maintaining your freedom and independence as you recuperate. This type of care may make it challenging to overcome feelings of shame, since you may be used to being active, and your illness or injury may prevent you from being as active as you might like.
In-Home Elderly Care Keeps You Safe
When you use in-home care services from Premier Personal Care, Inc., you can help keep yourself safe, as falls and accidents are much less common at home than in unfamiliar environments.
The bottom line is that it may be hard to accept help and care from others, but when you do, you can help make sure you continue to live a long, healthy and productive life.
