Common In-House Senior Services that Help Them Live Independently

Most older adults want to stay in their homes for as long as possible. However, daily tasks like shopping, cooking, and housekeeping get more challenging as we age. While a relative or friend may lend a hand, assisting with tasks takes time and effort.

Our team at Sage House Senior Care has put together a comprehensive guide on common in-house services that can help seniors live independently.


Does your loved one have a hard time staying on top of chores? Hiring in-house help can take these tasks off of their plate and yours. To find out if hiring help is worth it, calculate how much of your time is spent performing housekeeping chores. House cleaning services can be arranged when you want — typically on a weekly, biweekly, or monthly basis. Even a deep clean of the home once a month can be beneficial, so you and your loved one can focus on simpler daily tasks.

Running Errands and Providing Transportation

Many major retailers and grocery stores have adopted convenience features like delivery service and curbside pick-up. In fact, your local drug store, dry cleaner, and other retail outlets likely offer same-day delivery or express pick-up for services. This can help facilitate shopping and make leaving the house a thing of the past for seniors who have trouble getting around.

Additionally, home care agencies provide companion services that include transportation for your loved one to run errands. These aids also offer help with shopping and appointments.

Meal Preparation

Not eating healthy and nutritious food can take its toll on your loved one. If they are constantly heating frozen dinners, eating take-out, or drinking meal replacement shakes, you may want to consider an alternative. Meals on Wheels is a well-known food delivery service for seniors. While programs vary by location, the basic service includes healthy meal delivery to those age 60 and older who have limited mobility or trouble finding or cooking nutritious food.

In addition to Meals on Wheels, home care agencies provide personal care aides who can plan, shop for, and cook meals for your loved one from scratch.

Medication Management

Many seniors have chronic medical conditions that require consistent medication. According to a study conducted by Oregon State University researchers, nearly 40% of adults aged 65 and older take five or more prescription medications. When a routine becomes too tough to remember, they must get help.

Home care workers provide in-house services for seniors. They can visit your loved one at a set time each day to provide medication reminders in person and note that the correct dosages were taken.


Getting around with limited mobility can be extremely dangerous for seniors. Hiring a professional in-home caregiver can help ensure that your loved one is under constant supervision and has assistance with mobility and transfer, reducing the likelihood of falls and other accidents. Your loved one may even want to move around more because they know someone is nearby to help catch them if they fall.
