How to Get Home Care Assistance

As we age, the likelihood that we will need some assistance in our lives increases. Sometimes the assistance we will need will be taking care of ourselves. We might have a condition or an injury that limits our mobility and dexterity. We might develop a neurological issue that requires some care to help us manage our lives. Thankfully, there is plenty of care and assistance available for these issues.

But many seniors have difficulties of a different kind. Often, seniors can take care of themselves all right. They can get around OK, they can manage their personal hygiene, they can get in and out of bed just fine. But taking care of their homes and their lives can tricky, exhausting, and even dangerous for some seniors. Is there help available for seniors like this?

Home Care Assistance

There is help indeed and it comes in the form of home care assistance. Home care assistance is a specific type of senior care dedicated to seniors who struggle to fully take care of their homes but who, otherwise, can take care of themselves just fine. Back in the day, seniors in this position were very unfortunate indeed. Many seniors were compelled to move out of their homes –homes that they loved and in which they had lived for decades in some instances– and into a senior care facility of some kind. All of this not because they could not take care of themselves but because they found grocery shopping, laundry, or meal preparation too difficult.

Thankfully, those days are over now. For one, there are independent living and retirement communities. These communities offer a place for seniors to live in which they can run their own lives but do not have to worry about homemaking and housekeeping. But even better than that, there is home care assistance.

How Home Care Assistance Works

Home care assistance sees a caregiver come to the home of the client and help to run errands and do chores. The caregiver can come by as infrequently as once a week or every day. It all depends on how much assistance the senior needs. Some of the services included in home care assistance include:

  • Making and changing beds
  • Dusting
  • Washing dishes, pots, pans, and utensils
  • Cleaning kitchen counters and appliances
  • Cleaning inside the refrigerator
  • Gathering up trash from inside the home and putting it out for pick up
  • Cleaning bathroom fixtures
  • Sweeping, vacuuming, and mopping floors
  • Vacuuming carpets and upholstery
  • Doing laundry
  • Overseeing meal planning and preparation
  • Cleaning up after meals
  • Assisting with diet plans and reinforcing diet maintenance
  • Transporting clients to doctors, clinics, errands, shopping, and outings
  • Shopping for groceries and cleaning supplies
  • Performing errands
  • Providing companionship, friendship, and emotional support

Remove the Worry with Home Care Assistance

As you can see, the list of home care assistance services is long and varied. And the best thing about home care assistance is that it alleviates a lot of worry. Seniors need no longer dread those chores that they find difficult. And families of seniors don’t need to worry that their elderly loved ones are struggling to manage their homes.

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.
