IC Nanny Services – Calgary Trusts Them for Caregiving Too

Nannies in Calgary have found a new calling – taking care of elderly residents. A Calgary senior and his son have found out first-hand how these services can be of further assistance.

 
PRLog - Jul. 5, 2012 - Calgary, AB – Once upon a time, Calgary resident Lawrence Sharp was just as his surname suggested him to be.  A good athlete in his younger days and an energetic personality for most of his working years, Sharp was always on the go back in the day.  He would work 50 hours a week and spend the weekends with family and friends alike when he wasn’t catching up on unfinished tasks from the week that was.  In other words, he was the epitome of “work hard, play hard.”  However, that was a good three to five decades ago.

Nowadays, Sharp can no longer be at work or play, let alone do it as “hard” as he did in his salad days.  “He’s a shadow of his former self,” said his son, Lawrence Jr.  “His day consists of waking up, reading the morning paper and watching television lying down for most of the day.  He can no longer feed himself due to his chronic arthritis.  It’s been this way ever since he moved in with my family a few years ago, but we chose not to commit him to a retirement home.  Good thing we found IC (Nanny and Caregiver Services.)”

Thanks to IC Nanny and Caregiver Services, elderly individuals like Sharp have been getting the care and attention they deserve.  The company provides more than just nannies in Calgary for families with small children.  Even families with elderly relatives can take advantage of IC’s wide range of caregiving services, which include emergency care, meal preparation, safety monitoring and live-in home care.  They provide services either part-time, or like in Lawrence Sharp’s case, full-time.  Sharp Sr. was especially impressed with the physical therapy services provided by IC.  “I’ve been living in pain for most of the past two decades.  If not for (arthritis), I’d probably still be working by now.  But IC’s caregivers have made things manageable for me.  The pain’s still there, of course, but at least I know someone’s looking out for me round the clock.”

Different seniors have different problems – it may be a debilitating illness that prevents one from moving around properly and with ease, or has one bedridden.  It may be a less severe concern – even at their strongest, elderly people do not have the strength or the stamina to do many of the things they could d when they were younger.  But many families have passed on the usual route of committing their elderly parents or grandparents to assisted living centers.  These are families that prefer a personal touch and are more comfortable with Calgary nannies or caregiver services.

The younger Sharp had this to add about his family’s decision.  “Committing a loved one to a nursing home, for me, is a cop-out.  It’s not what you want to do if you value the well-being of your mom or dad.  I believe all nanny services in Calgary should have some form of service that can also cater to the elderly.  It’s not just the little ones that need supervision, after all.”
