7 Different Types of Elderly Home Care Services

 

Elderly home care services can and do help countless seniors across America. One of the greatest things about elderly home care is that it is an inherently personal service. Every senior receives care that is customized to their needs and wants. Because of the personalized nature of elderly home care, it can benefit just about any senior. Here are seven different types of elderly home care services.

1. Personal Care

When we first think of elderly home care, many of us first think of personal care. Personal care is in some ways the classic type of elderly home care. It involves caregivers helping the elderly with the Activities of Daily Living. These are the activities that we all perform every day to take care of ourselves. They include activities such as getting in and out of bed, eating, using the bathroom, washing and grooming, and mobility. Many seniors struggle to perform these activities on their own but they don’t want to move into a senior care facility. Elderly home care services can help such seniors.

2. Homemaking Services

Many seniors can take care of themselves all right, but taking care of their homes is another matter. But it seems silly for an elderly person to move into a senior care community and leave their beloved home just because they can’t manage the vacuuming. Homemaking services can help. These elderly home care services focus on taking care of the homes of the elderly. Caregivers can do this by cleaning the kitchen, doing the laundry, helping with grocery shopping, and other tasks.

3. Companionship Services

Mental and emotional health is as important for the elderly as it is for anybody else. Possibly even more important because many seniors live in isolation and this can lead to loneliness and depression and other serious problems. Companion care services can prevent and lessen these feelings of loneliness. Companion caregivers focus on the mental wellbeing of the clients. They can do this in a number of ways such as by arranging social functions for them, helping them keep up with correspondence, and just having conversations with them.

4. Specialized Care

Because elderly home care services are personalized, you can receive care catered to somebody with your specific condition. If an elderly person is recovering from a stroke or injury, or has Alzheimer’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, or another disorder, they can really benefit from working with a caregiver who is especially experienced in helping people with that condition.

5. Skilled Care

Sometimes seniors need to see a registered nurse, not a caregiver. Elderly home care services can arrange for in-home visits from registered nurses to provide skilled care.

6. Live-in Care

Some seniors require around-the-clock supervision and assistance to be safe and healthy. Elderly home care services can even provide this. You can have a qualified caregiver live in your home with you to provide care whenever needed.

7. Transportation

Some elderly home care service companies partner with ride sharing programs. These services give seniors the freedom to travel wherever they need to. As great as ride sharing apps are, mobile phones are not the easiest things to use for many seniors. Elderly home care services can handle that for them.

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.
