What Is Home Care?
If you and your family need assistance in meeting the needs of an aging loved one, care at home is among the options that can help keep your loved one healthy and happy at home. Home care is increasingly popular because seniors and others who need assistance are able to maintain their independence, continue to live according to their habits and preferences, and maintain existing social and community ties.
Home care means inviting a caregiver into your loved one’s home so that they can provide assistance with day-to-day tasks, check in on your loved one’s health, and provide physical, mental, and emotional support.
Caregivers can help with:
- Meal planning and preparation
- Personal grooming and bathing
- Toileting and incontinence care
- Light housekeeping and maintaining a safe home
- Socializing and emotional support
- Running errands, or transportation to medical appointments
Senior Homecare by Angels can provide assistance with all of these tasks, and we make sure that the caregiver your family works with will be a right fit in both caregiving expertise and also personality. We know it’s important to make sure that our home care clients and our caregivers are able to build trusted relationships, so we look for matches based on values, personality traits, habits, and experience.
Caregivers can assist families in many ways. Whether your loved one needs assistance for a few hours a day or around-the-clock monitoring and care, we’ll work with your schedule to design the care plan that’s right for your loved one and your family. We can also help with transition care if your loved one is recovering from a surgery or an extended hospital stay, or with respite care if family caregivers need time outside of the home.
If you’re ready to get assistance in meeting the needs of your aging loved one, contact Senior Homecare by Angels. We’ll consult with you about your schedule, costs, and the care that’s needed. We’ll schedule an in-home visit, and then discuss the kind of personalized care plan that will work for your aging loved one. Then we’ll schedule a caregiver meeting so that you can interview a caregiver candidate and make sure they’ll be a good fit for your loved one and your family.
