Elderly care has come a long way in a relatively short time. It was not long ago that if you or a loved one required some kind of elderly care, the only option available to most was to start looking at nursing homes or other assisted care facilities. But that is no longer the case. More and more people are choosing in-home care to meet their needs or the needs of an elderly loved one. But wait, isn’t home care super expensive and impractical? No, it certainly is not! Read on to find out how companies such as Executive Care have revolutionized elderly care.
The Freedom of Home
Back when most people assumed the only real option for elderly care was a nursing home, people would put it off as long as possible. Nobody really wants to move out of their home and into a nursing home, no matter how nice it is or how well run it may be. This is your home after all. And for many seniors, moving out and into an assisted living center is tantamount to saying your life as a productive member of society is over. So seniors would put up with thousands of little inconveniences –and many serious problems– just so they would not have to move out.
The Little Things
These inconveniences can be as seemingly minor as household chores, such as cleaning, taking out the trash, and grocery shopping. To younger people, these are no big deal, but for many seniors they can be exhausting, painful, and even dangerous. But still, why should anybody have to move simply because they’re having trouble with the vacuuming?
That’s why Executive Care offers homemaking services as part of our elderly care plans. Homemaker services covers everything from doing the dishes, dusting, making the beds, laundry, transportation, and a whole host of other services. When you no longer dread having to dust and vacuum once a week, it can be a big weight lifted off your shoulders. Likewise, many seniors’ eyesight becomes too compromised for them to drive safely, but with Executive Care’s homemaker services, you’ll have somebody else to do all the necessary driving.
The Bigger Things
You might be thinking, “That’s all well and good, but my elderly mother needs around-the-clock care, so in-home elderly care is not an option”. Well that’s where you’re wrong. Executive Care also offers live-in care. We can match you with a fully qualified, trustworthy, friendly, and professional caregiver to take care of all the around-the-clock needs of you or your elderly loved one. Thus you are provided with all the help you could possibly need.
At Executive Care we can take care of the little things like dusting to the big things like helping with medication. And we’ll also do everything in between. But it’s not just these basic services we provide that matter. It’s also the intangibles. Just having the companionship of a caregiver, whether it’s a few hours a week or 24 hours a day can be great boon to the health and wellbeing of an elderly person.
