What Are Some Home Health Care Options?
Nowadays, you have plenty of home health care options. Gone are the days when, if you required more than a few services or some specialized ones, you were forced into looking at nursing homes. Now there are plenty of options for you to get the health care you need (or an elderly loved one needs) right in the comfort of your own home. Honestly, your home health care options are really only limited by your needs. That is, of course, if you find a good provider of home health care. And Executive Care is the best.
One of the best things about home health care is that it tends to be far more personal than the type of care you’d find in a nursing home or assisted care facility. Even if the workers there are great, kind hearted people, they’re often understaffed and just have too many people to attend to. What’s more, it’s often a case of squeaky wheels getting the oil, because the residents who require the most care often get the most attention, and the others can be neglected.
With home health care, however, a senior will receive the caregiver’s entire attention for however long he or she is there. What’s more, being in somebody’s home is great way to get to know them and understand who they are. So while the caregiver is assisting with eating or bathing, or helping with wheelchair or bed positioning, or assisting with prescribed exercise programs, they are getting to know you or your elderly loved one and establishing a rapport with them. This feeling of companionship can be just as important to seniors as are the many tangible benefits that home health caregivers provide.
Another great thing about home health care is that it’s not “one size fits all”. It can be tailored and customized to meet your needs or the needs of your elderly loved one. Many seniors have specific conditions that require specialized care. They need somebody trained and experienced in treating and working with seniors with their specific condition. This is something we’re well prepared for at Executive Care. We can supply you with caregivers who can address conditions such as:
- Alzheimer’s and Dementia
- Spine and Brain Injury
- Developmental Disabilities
- Accident Victims
- Surgery Patients
- And Others
Many seniors also need the services of a registered nurse, sometimes quite regularly. At Executive Care we are prepared for this and can offer visits from registered nurses as part of our home health care services. Registered nurses can evaluate care and give advice. By bringing in registered nurses whenever they are needed, we can provide the in-home care and assistance that you or your family member requires in order to recover from a hospitalization, avoid a current condition from getting worse, or help them step back into their life.
