Senior in-home care services have revolutionized senior care. In the past, senior in-home care services were accessible to only very few seniors, because of a lack of geographic availability, high costs, and just a general lack of understanding for the need of such services. Thankfully, the cost of senior in-home care services has come way down and these services are now widely available. Here are six senior in-home care services worth considering.
We have a tendency in this society to overlook the importance of mental and emotional health. We understand the threats posed by various physical ailments, yet it’s harder to see, and therefore harder to consider, mental health problems. Thankfully, this is starting to change. Many seniors are physically healthy but are isolated. This can lead to loneliness and depression which can in turn cause physical problems. Companion care is a senior in-home care service that can prevent and treat these mental and emotional problems by giving seniors somebody to talk to and who can evaluate their mental state, as well as help them be more sociable.
Many seniors can manage their lives all right but managing their homes is either too tiring, too difficult, or too dangerous for them to do. Years ago, such seniors might have to leave their homes and move into a senior care facility. This would be terrible for any senior who doesn’t want to leave their home. Homemaker services can solve this problem. With this senior in-home care service, seniors can benefit from caregivers visiting them and taking care of the dusting, vacuuming, laundry, groceries, and so on.
Personal Care Services
Personal care services are probably the type of service you first think of when you think of senior in-home care services. Personal care helps seniors with the Activities of Daily Living. Such activities include eating, grooming, toileting, and mobility. Seniors who struggle with these activities require assistance, otherwise they might neglect their self-care. Thankfully, they need not move into a senior care facility as they can receive all the personal care they need with senior in-home care services.
Live-in Care Services
You can even arrange for around the clock senior in-home care services. With a live-in caregiver, you can rest assured that you or the senior in your life has access to senior in-home care services 24-7. The live-in caregiver will be, like all caregivers, bonded, insured, and have gone through a criminal background check.
Specialized Care Services
Some seniors have conditions that make caring for them difficult. Seniors with certain conditions need specialized care. Such conditions include Alzheimer’s Disease, ALS, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, and more. With specialized senior in-home care services, seniors living with conditions such as these can work with a caregiver who is especially skilled and experienced in treating seniors with the same condition.
Skilled Care Services
Seniors can even access the services of Registered Nurses in their own home with senior in-home skilled services.
On-demand Ride Services
Sometimes healthcare providers can partner with on-demand ride services and offer this as part of a senior in-home care service package.
