Care for an Aging Veteran

For aging veterans, home care may be necessary at some point in time. But for those who may be on a fixed or limited income, it may not be possible to consider the prospect of hiring a Care-for-an-Aging-Veteranprofessional and experienced home care aide. The cost alone can cause them to give up on that idea and, instead, try to do the best they can on their own and avoid serious accidents, injuries, and other emergencies.  It’s important to realize that in-home care is a very affordable option.

Family members, friends, and others who are worried about their elderly loved ones, may look after them for a while. But as the months march on and turn into years, that type of support can begin to fade out.  Even adult children who devote their energy to making sure their elderly veteran father is safe and comfortable within his own home, will eventually find that this type of work is extremely difficult.  Sometimes, they are forced to make a decision between providing care, doing the best they can at work, in their own relationships, and even other activities that are important to them.

How do people make a difference, especially when they already know they simply don’t have that kind of time to devote to the senior? Far too many family members who become caregivers for their aging parents or other loved ones have a number of other responsibilities in life, including their career, their own family, and more.

Learning as much as possible about quality home care and focusing on relying on this type of care from an agency, as opposed to an independent caregiver, can make a difference. Quality home care agencies are devoted to providing the optimal level of care and support for seniors. Contact an agency to learn about availability and the services they offer.

About Kyle Laramie, Founder & CEO

In recognition of his impact in leadership, Kyle was named to the St. Louis Business Journal’s prestigious “40 Under 40” list and St. Louis Small Business Monthly’s “100 St. Louisans to Know” in 2014. VCC was named a St. Louis Small Business Monthly “Top 20” small business and a finalist for the St. Louis Post Dispatch Top Workplace (2015-2022), St. Louis Business Journal Best Place to Work (2019 & 2022), and the Arcus Awards (2014). The team has served more than 14,000 Veteran clients and their families. Kyle frequently speaks on Veterans’ benefits, addressing conferences such as the Home Care Association of America and Decision Health. He is passionate about giving back and has built a charitable-minded organization that supports various philanthropic efforts.
