6 Ways A Healthcare Agency Can Help The Elderly

6 Ways a Healthcare Agency Can Help the Elderly

Different healthcare agencies offer different services. Elderly people need more healthcare services than most younger people do. Here are six ways that a healthcare agency can help seniors specifically.

1. A Healthcare Agency Helps Seniors And Their Families Figure Out What Care They Need.

Knowing you could use some assistance is not the same thing as knowing exactly what form that assistance should take, how it should be provided, and how often. These are things that should be figured out in a detailed and personalized plan of care. The best healthcare agencies have nurses on staff who can sit down with seniors, listen to their concerns, assess their needs, and draw up a plan of care.

2. A Healthcare Agency Can Allow Seniors To Age In Place.

Many of the services this article will discuss are available in senior care communities. But not every senior wants to live in such a community. Many prefer living in their own homes. A healthcare agency that offers in-home care can allow seniors the opportunity to remain in their homes and age in place.

3. A Healthcare Agency Can Provide Personal Care.

Personal care helps seniors with physical tasks such as getting around, using the toilet, bathing or showering, and eating meals.

4. A Healthcare Agency Can Provide Companionship.

Many seniors face mental health challenges that stem from loneliness and depression. Companion caregivers visit seniors, converse with them, encourage them to be social, and keep them connected to the outside world.

5. A Healthcare Agency Can Provide Homemaking Services.

Sometimes simple things like having somebody come over to take care of the vacuuming, laundry, or grocery shopping can really improve the quality of life for some seniors.

6. A Healthcare Agency Can Help Healthcare Centers And Similar Establishments.

All of the above examples are ways in which a healthcare agency can directly help their elderly clients. But in-home care is only one category of care that an agency can provide. As mentioned above, there are senior care facilities, such as assisted living communities and nursing homes, that hire caregivers to look after their residents. Caregivers also work at hospitals, rehab centers, outpatient clinics, and more.

It can be difficult for establishments such as these to maintain the perfect number of staff. A healthcare agency can provide supplemental staffing so that these facilities don’t have to worry about hiring or laying off employees while still having the right number of staff.

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.

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.

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.
