Learn About All of Your Home Care Options
This year's summer weather has been harsh, and Arkansas has already faced her fair share of weather threats. From lighting strikes to hailstorms and strong winds, summer weather hazards are all too real. BrightStar Care in Fort Smith knows that everyone should be prepared, especially seniors, for whatever wild weather may come our way.
If you or someone you love would welcome assistance at home, whether due to dementia, immobility and health concerns, or simply the frailties of age, a home caregiver can be at the ready for whatever you need. Our senior care services include companion care (with transportation services, light housekeeping and meal preparation services), personal care and dementia home care.
A senior caregiver can help gather the following items for severe weather preparations:
- Enough clean drinking water to last at least 3 days for each person
- A first aid kit with bandages, antibiotic ointment packets, gauze pads, tweezers and alcohol wipe packets
- Flashlights and extra batteries
- A list of emergency contact phone numbers
- Extra pet supplies
- Extra personal supplies such as incontinence items or hearing aid batteries
A senior companion also offers home safety help throughout the year.
A BrightStar Care home companion monitors for hazards that might cause a fall and injury such as rugs, slippery tile, dim lighting, bulky extension cords or improperly working appliances.
Weather preparedness for Fort Smith and surrounding communities is critical, especially during the summer. Home care from BrightStar Care is ready to help you prepare for anything that comes your way.
