Is Home Care Assistance Practical?
Home care assistance for seniors sounds like the best option, right? Seniors get to remain in their own home, they don’t have to be separated from their loved ones, and they can still get the care they need. Sure, it sounds great. But is it really practical? Can a senior really get all the proper care he or she needs without leaving their own home? And even if so, is home care assistance affordable? Or is it only for the rich? Just how practical is home care assistance?
In many ways, home care assistance is considerably more practical than moving out to a nursing home or other manner of elder care facility. Just because the daily minutia of keeping up with household chores is getting a bit beyond you or your loved one, does that really necessitate the great big upheaval that is moving house, selling possessions, and possibly even saying goodbye to pets? That doesn’t sound practical at all.
That’s why Executive Care offers basic homemaking services as part of our home care assistance packages. Everything from grocery shopping, laundry, transportation, and more are available home care assistance services from our caregivers. Such tasks can be a real burden on seniors and can prevent them from enjoying life, or worse still, can injure or otherwise hurt them. But homemaking services as part of a home care assistance package will take care of all that.
Of course, what we think of most often when it comes to home care assistance is of a medical nature. Making sure our elderly loved ones remember to take their medication is of the utmost importance, and routine visits from the caregivers at Executive Care can ensure there are no problems. What’s more, our home care assistance plans also cover help with issues such as following exercise regimens, incontinence, and bathing and grooming.
Live-in care probably seems the most impractical home care assistance. After all, how do you find somebody willing to live in your or your loved one’s house round-the-clock? Somebody reliable, trustworthy, and friendly, no less. Well, you don’t; you let us at Executive Care do that. We have many professional, reliable, and warm caregivers and we will work with you to find the one that’s the best fit to provide live-in care for you or your loved one.
Just because somebody needs 24-hour home care assistance does not necessarily mean a move to a nursing home is in order. Live-in care is merely the most complete form of home care assistance. And before you write off the notion as being “too expensive”, please contact us. Our live-in home care assistance packages are probably more affordable than you think.
