Finding Dependable, Fun Assistance for Your Aging Parents

Papa has made it their mission to provide quality assistance to seniors.

Whether your older parent needs someone to take a walk in the park, play a game of checkers with, or someone to do light housekeeping—Papa has the perfect Papa Pal for the job.

Caregivers often want to devote more time to their aging parents, but due to their own work responsibilities, household chores, errands, and social activities, finding the time to do so is often quite difficult. More often than not, seniors have friends who would love to help them out, but due to their own medical conditions, they no longer have the ability to drive or the energy to assist.

Finding dependable, attentive and fun caregivers is now possible.

The needs of seniors

As a caregiver for your parents, it is likely that you can find the time to stop by for a visit with them in the evening or during the weekend or to call them a few times during the week.

But your love and moral support isn’t the only need that they have.

Seniors with health problems tend to have frequent doctor appointments and these can be very time-consuming once you pick up your parent, wait for a lengthy time at the doctor’s office, get prescriptions filled and then take your parent home.

Your parents also need to run errands that require that you go along, such as getting a haircut, banking, and shopping for groceries or their clothing needs.

All of these things are quite time-consuming and can wipe out your PTO at work at a rapid pace.

How Papa can help

Papa has made it their mission to provide quality assistance to seniors by hiring responsible and attentive staff members to help out with many of their needs.

If your parent is homebound, he or she likely miss the social aspects of his or her life. This includes time to socialize, attend church or other fun activities where they can interact with others.

Papa recognizes that this basic need is crucial to their mental and physical well-being, and enables you to hire a Papa Pal to go by and simply visit with your parent.

Whether your parent wants to reminisce by looking through an old photo album, needs a partner for a game of chess or help with a computer or cell phone, or just craves a friendly chat, the Papa Pal is there to provide the fun social time that is crucial to your parent’s well-being.
