What Are The Limitations Of Home Health Care Providers?

What Are the Limitations of Home Health Care Providers?

Home health care providers offer a range of health care services that their clients receive in their own homes. But what are the limitations of these services?

Why Are There Home Health Care Providers?

Home health care provides something that senior living facilities do not. You’re probably familiar with nursing homes, assisted living communities, retirement homes, and the like. These are different kinds of senior living communities that serve their residents in different ways. Many seniors are safe, healthy, and happy in these facilities. But this style of care, and this style of living, isn’t for everybody.

Home Health Care Means Aging In Place.

Simply put, a lot of seniors don’t want to move out of their homes. Many seniors love their homes and would be saddened if they felt forced to leave. Furthermore, all senior living communities involve a communal style of living to some degree, and that’s just not for everybody. Lastly, home health care is almost always less expensive than moving into a senior living facility.

What Are The Limits Of Home Health Care?

If home health care is more affordable, then it must be lesser than senior living communities in some way, right? Well, perhaps not. Home health care can be divided into three main categories:

1.    Companionship

Mental health challenges are common for seniors. Sometimes these challenges come in the form of loneliness and isolation. Many seniors live in places where they can’t visit often with family and friends. This can cause depression which can lead to a host of other problems. Companion caregivers visit seniors in their homes, keep them company, and help them with their mental health.

2.    Homemaking

The biggest problem facing many seniors is simply how to take care of their home. Homemaking caregivers can visit to do the dusting, mopping, scrubbing, and other difficult household chores. They can even run errands for their clients such as grocery shopping.

3.    Personal Care

Personal care helps seniors with the Activities of Daily Living. Tasks that are simple for younger people—going to the bathroom, getting up and down stairs, brushing their teeth, etc.—are very difficult for some seniors. A personal caregiver can visit seniors and help with all these tasks and more. Unless a senior needs a specialized piece of machinery or equipment that can only be accessed in a medical facility, home care assistance can help with just about anything.

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.

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.
