What Services Does Personal Care Cover For Seniors?

What Services Does Personal Care Cover For Seniors?

Personal care can help seniors in a variety of different ways. This article will go over a number of different services that personal care can offer to seniors.

Personal Care Helps Seniors Accomplish The Activities Of Daily Living.

Some forms of senior care help seniors with their mental health (companionship care). Some forms of senior care help seniors with pragmatic matters such as taking care of their homes (homemaking care). Personal care helps seniors physically. Personal care helps seniors take care of themselves and manage what we at Executive Care term the “Activities of Daily Living”.

We use this term to describe everyday tasks of self-care that we all must do. We all have to get out of bed each morning and get back in it at night. In between we have to shower, shave, brush our teeth, or take care of our dentures. We have to use the toilet. We have to get up and down stairs. We have to eat and more. Personal care can help seniors do all these things and more.

Personal Care Helps Seniors In The Bathroom.

Many seniors experience struggles in the bathroom. First there’s using the toilet. Some seniors have problems with bowel regularity and others struggle with incontinence. Some seniors need help using bedpans or commodes and others have to use external urinary devices like catheter bags, and other use ostomy bags or colostomy bags. These items aren’t always easy to use, especially when seniors are first getting used to them. Senior caregivers can help with all of them.

But the toilet is one of only two prominent fixtures in the bathroom, the other being the bath or shower. The bathtub can be a dangerous place for seniors, that’s why personal caregivers can help seniors get in and out of showers and baths as well as bathe themselves, if necessary. But bathing is only one part of cleaning and grooming. There’s dental/denture care, skin care, nail maintenance, combing hair, and more, and personal caregivers can help seniors with all of these.

Personal Care Helps Seniors Improve And Maintain Good Health.

Beyond staying clean, one needs to eat healthy to be healthy. Yet many seniors don’t eat healthy either because they can’t really cook for themselves, or in cases of neurodegenerative diseases, they simply forget to eat. Personal caregivers can help seniors with eating and remind them to take medication. Personal care can also help seniors follow prescribed exercise routines. Furthermore, all these personal care services and more can be provided to seniors in their own private homes.

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.
