What Elder Care Services Are Available to Me?

What Elder Care Services Are Available to Me?

Elder care services have transformed what it means to be a senior in the 21st century. Not long ago, any senior who was unfortunate enough to have an issue that required care of some kind –which, if we live long enough, will likely be a situation in which we all find ourselves one day– would be automatically directed towards a nursing home or senior care facility of some kind. For the vast majority of seniors, that’s just how it worked. There was very little consideration for the diversity of seniors, their situations, and their needs. Nowadays, that’s all changed. Now, there are a plethora of elder care services available to seniors everywhere.

Elder Care Services

Let us begin by defining what we mean by “elder care services”. An elder care service is any service designed to help seniors in their lives. These services are typically provided by a caregiver and can be conducted in the homes of seniors or in senior care facilities. Elder care services can focus on physically helping the seniors themselves, for example, helping them get in and out of bed or helping them with their personal hygiene. Or it can be something that helps seniors manage their lives, for example, helping them with errands and chores and the like.

Types of Elder Care Services

Elder care services can be broadly divided into three main categories: physical care, companion care, and homemaking care. Here are some brief overviews of each:

  • Personal Care – This elder care service sees a caregiver help a senior with the activities of daily living. Physical care involves a caregiver physically helping the senior in question. Some physical care services include: assisting with eating and bathing, using bath equipment, dental/denture care, grooming, emptying or changing external urinary collecting devices, providing colostomy care and emptying ostomy bags, and assisting with transferring to/from bed, wheelchair, toilet and chair.
  • Companion Care – This elder care service sees a caregiver help with a seniors mental and emotional wellbeing. Some companion care services include: Talking, listening, and sharing experiences, playing games/cards and reading, helping to keep clients in contact with family and friends and the outside world, providing transportation to medical appointments and grocery stores, and accompanying clients to recreational and/or social events.
  • Homemaking Care – This elder care service sees a caregiver help a senior with the housekeeping tasks and errands that they find difficult or dangerous to perform. Some homemaking services include: Washing dishes, pots, pans, and utensils, cleaning kitchen counters and appliances, gathering up trash from inside the home and putting it out for pick up, sweeping, vacuuming, and mopping floors, doing laundry, and overseeing meal planning and preparation.

Other Elder Care Services

But those aren’t all the elder care services out there. Seniors can also get all of the above services offered around the clock with live-in care. Seniors with specific conditions such as ALS or Multiple Sclerosis can benefit from working with caregivers who are specially skilled in dealing with those conditions. And all of the above services are available from Executive Care.

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.
