Different Types of Elder Care Services

Different Types of Elder Care Services

Elder care has changed a lot over recent decades. It has progressed and evolved into something better. It was not too long ago that if a family determined than an elder member required care of some kind, they instantly began looking at nursing home and assisted living brochures. Back in the day, it was only natural for working families to place their elder members in facilities such as these where the care provided was more or less uniform. Thankfully, today, we can access a far greater range of elder care services.

Assisted Living

Assisted living communities still exist today. They might be called senior care facilities, retirement, communities, nursing homes, or whatever; but they’re still around. And generally, they’re better than they used to be. Different communities cater to different seniors with different needs. But they all still have one major flaw: you have to move out of your home to go there. Many seniors don’t want to leave their homes where they’ve been happily living for years, even decades. So what are their options?

In-Home Elder Care Services

There now exists a plethora of elder care services that can be provided to seniors right in the comfort of their very own homes. The in-home elder care service market is growing and growing and so too has grown the range of elder care services that can be provided in home. From help with relatively minor tasks such as help with keeping up with correspondence and doing the laundry, to more major forms of assistance such as helping seniors with Alzheimer’s Disease and even live-in care, the range of elder care services is truly vast.

Different Types Of Elder Care Services

So just what are these various types of elder care services? Well, here they are:

Companionship

  • Providing companionship, friendship and emotional support
  • Talking, listening and sharing experiences
  • Playing games/cards and reading
  • Providing transportation to medical appointments, grocery store and errands
  • Accompanying clients to recreational and/or social events

Further Types Of Elder Care

But that’s not the limit of elder care. As discussed, elder care services can also include live-in care. Such care sees a caregiver placed in the home of the client to live 24/7. This means the caregiver can be present whenever needed and can tend to emergency situations. There are also specialized types of elder care services. These services are provided by a caregiver who is specially trained and experienced in dealing with clients who have specific conditions, such as multiple sclerosis, ALS, Parkinson’s Disease, or the aforementioned Alzheimer’s.

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.
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.
