An Overlooked Aspect of Elderly Care

Elderly Care

The baby boom generation was the result of a population spike in the years and decades after World War II. The boomers are now reaching their senior years, meaning we now have a larger elderly population than ever before. What’s more, great advances in medicine and technology mean that we can live longer, on average, than we ever had before. Because of this, there has never been a higher demand for care workers who work specifically with the elderly. Elderly care is more a part of our cultural consciousness than ever before. Yet still, it’s amazing how many misconceptions about and overlooked aspects of elderly care that persist.

Home elderly care

The first misconception is also the biggest one. When it comes to elderly care, it’s amazing to think of how many people automatically think of a nursing home. They equate elderly care with a medical facility. While that might have been true in the past, it certainly is not now. Indeed, for many seniors, in home care is by far the best option.

We are often guilty of overlooking mental health. That goes for people of all ages, but especially of the elderly. Minor physical problems can be exacerbated by emotional distress and mental anguish. Distress and anguish caused by, say, having to leave your home of years, or even decades, to go to a nursing home because you can’t look after yourself any more. Why should we subject our elderly loved ones to that when they can likely get all the care they need right in the comfort of their own home? Elderly care has never been more available nor more affordable.

A variety of elderly care services

One of the best parts about in home elderly care is that you can be sure that your parent or elderly loved one is getting the exact care they need, customized to suit their specific needs. For some seniors, all they really need is some companionship; somebody to talk to, to socialize with, to play games with, and maybe somebody who can help out with a few things. For other seniors, their health might be excellent, but they’re still seniors, so some tasks and chores can be incredibly taxing. For them, the type of elderly care that’s best suited is homemaking services. Somebody to help them out with the day-to-day tasks of taking care of a home.

Other seniors might require more involved care. Personal care workers can help with matters such as getting in and out of beds and wheelchairs, dealing with colostomy and ostomy bags, and following basic exercise routines. And even when a senior requires around-the-clock care to ensure their safety and well being, you can get a live-in care worker to live with your elderly loved one and provide the care needed. Even when meeting with a registered nurse is required, this can be arranged in-home, as well. And Executive Care offers all of these elderly care services and more.

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.
