4 Ways to Use Senior Home Care That You May not Have Considered

4 Ways to Use Senior Home Care That You May not Have Considered

If you are a senior or the adult child or loved one of a senior, then you probably know about senior home care services. If you don’t know about senior home care services, well, you probably should, so keep reading and learn about them. Most people, however, know that seniors can receive a number of care services within the comfort of their own homes. It’s a great way to receive senior care because it is, for most seniors, more convenient than moving into a senior care facility, and furthermore, it is almost always cheaper than moving into a senior care facility.

When we think about senior home care services, we most often think of various personal care services. Personal care helps seniors with the activities of daily living. Such activities include eating, going to the bathroom, bathing, and grooming. Seniors who can’t quite manage to do these activities on their own clearly need personal care to help them. But there are senior home care services that you may not realise are available. Here are four ways to use senior home care that you may not have considered.

1). Homemaking Services

Not all senior home care services are about physically helping the senior in question themselves. Many seniors can manage to take care of themselves all right, but taking care of their homes might prove difficult, exhausting, or even dangerous. For such seniors there are homemaking services. With this senior home care service, seniors can benefit from a caregiver coming by once or twice a week or even every day, if necessary, and helping with tasks such as laundry, dusting and vacuuming, or grocery shopping.

2). Companionship Services

Senior home care services are not just about helping seniors with their physical health. Let us not overlook the importance of mental and emotional health as well. Many seniors face mental health challenges, such as depression, and the slowing down of cognitive functions. This can be as a result of a neurological disorder or because of isolation and loneliness. Companionship services allow seniors to interact with a caregiver on a regular basis so that they don’t become detached from the outside world.

3). Specialized Care

Sometimes seniors require special home care services that are designed to help them with a specific condition that they have. Seniors with conditions such as multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s Disease, or Parkinson’s Disease or seniors who are recovering from a stroke or other injuries have special needs and requirements that not all caregivers are necessarily equipped to handle. But with specialized care, seniors can work with caregivers who are especially trained or experienced in helping seniors with the same condition that they have.

4). Live-in care

 For around-the-clock care, surely seniors must move into a senior care facility, right? You can’t get 24/7 care with a senior home care service, can you? Actually, you can. It’s called live-in care and it involves a caregiver moving into the home of the client. This way, the caregiver can be on hand to provide care in the case of an emergency whenever that may be.

What People Are Saying About Us

I’d like to convey to you how wonderful the aide Afia is for my mother’s care. She has been with her since last January and has become more than just a caregiver. She truly “cares” and is skillful in her abilities. My mom has had several health situations and her current health has improved to the best she has been in several years. Both her doctor and my family attribute a large part of that to Afia’s care. She is diligent about her diet and sleep patterns, and her “toileting” issues. All of this has contributed greatly to my mom’s overall improved health and her peace of mind as well as our family’s peace of mind. We cannot say enough about her. We are also very satisfied with Executive Care all the way around, from the billing department and everyone we speak with on the phone, very courteous and professional.
Cindi E
It’s almost five years since we have been receiving caregivers through Executive Care, and I would like to take this transitional period to express our appreciation for the services you have provided thus far. We are particularly appreciative of the special attention and care Lili has given to our case. Lili has been very sensitive to our particular needs and it has been and remains important to us to have consistency in the arrangements by having Lili as our go-to person in light of Dr. E’s special needs. It is apparent that Lili has many other important responsibilities, so we wanted to thank Executive Care and Lili for the efforts she has made on our behalf.
Judge Naomi E
I have had business dealings with Executive Care for some time now and have invariably been very satisfied. The personnel have been considerate, trustworthy, capable and always responsive. They have provided a genuine physical and emotional lift to the patient, in my case an elderly, frail sister. I do not hesitate to recommend the organization for the services rendered.
