How Specialized Is The Care That Seniors Receive?

How Specialized Is The Care That Seniors Receive?

Senior care is a fairly simple concept at first. Seniors require care and assistance at higher rates than younger people, so an industry has sprung up to care for them. But all seniors are different. Is senior care specialized or is it one-size-fits-all?

Senior Care

Seniors experience certain problems at comparatively high rates. The average septuagenarian or octogenarian is less mobile than younger people. Therefore, it only makes sense that they hire a healthcare agency to provide a caregiver who can help them get in and out of bed or up and down stairs. Seniors are likely to experience memory loss. If this extends to forgetting to take medication or even forgetting to eat or bathe, then somebody needs to be there to remind them. These caregivers deliver their services in one of two places:

  • In senior living communities
    Senior living communities are places where seniors live where they can receive all this care in a convenient and consistent manner. Many seniors love the camaraderie they receive from their fellow senior residents. But these communities can also be quite expensive, and many seniors are reluctant to leave their own homes.
  • In the private homes of seniors
    What could be more convenient than receiving all the care you need in your own home? In-home senior care is also more easily specialized to meet the needs of the client.

Specialized Senior Care

At Executive Care, we divide our in-home care into three broad categories:

  1. Personal Care
    This is the care most people think about when they imagine senior care. Personal care involves caregivers helping seniors accomplish everyday tasks needed to take care of themselves. This can include everything from help using the toilet, to help using the shower, to help with eating, and more.
  2. Homemaking Care
    Some seniors can take care of themselves fine but taking care of their homes is harder. Homemaking care is a specialized care that involves taking care of household chores and errands for seniors.
  3. Companion Care
    Physical health is only part of the equation. Mental health is just as important. Companion care helps seniors maintain and improve their emotional and mental wellbeing.

Specialized Senior Care For Specific Issues

Any of the above three categories of care can be specialized to suit the client in question. Often, clients receive a package of care that combines services from two or three of these categories, specialized to suit their needs. But some seniors have issues, such as dementia/Alzheimer’s Disease, multiple sclerosis, or Parkinson’s Disease that require specialized care. Executive Care can assign a caregiver who specializes in helping seniors with these diagnoses.

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.
Cindi E
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.
