What Should I Look for in Senior Care?

What Should I Look for in Senior Care?

If we’re lucky to live long enough, we will require senior care at some point. Regardless of specific health ailments or living situations, we will all need some type of care as we age. For many of us, professional senior care will be the best the option. But what should you look for when examining the senior care options for you or your loved one? How can you know what your best option is?

Your options

The first, and perhaps biggest decision you must make pertains to the two overarching types of senior care that exist: in-home or a senior care facility (such as a nursing home). Far too many people think that a senior care facility is their only real option, either because they assume in-home care is not complete enough or is perhaps too expensive. But this isn’t the case.

More and more people are discovering that in-home senior care is the superior option. Why uproot your whole life, sell your house/move out of your apartment, and disrupt everything just because you need a little extra help running your household or looking after yourself? For many seniors, it doesn’t make sense. And that’s why in-home senior care is so great. But you have to find the type of in-home senior care that’s right for you or your loved one.

Find care tailored to your needs

At a certain point, a senior may find that he or she needs a little more help than just hiring little Timmy down the block to cut the grass. But if struggling to cope with household chores is your only real problem, why would you need to hire a fully qualified nurse who is more better employed by somebody who needs help with medications and such? Try to find a senior care package that focusses on homemaking: grocery shopping, vacuuming, laundry, etc. For many seniors, help with homemaking can make all the difference in the world.

Of course, many of us will need more help than just with chores and errands. If you or your loved one does need help with medications, following exercise plans, or perhaps help with colostomy or ostomy bags, some personal care is required. But again, this does not necessitate a move to a senior care facility. You can hire a fully qualified caregiver to come into your home to provide assistance with such issues.

Now the big problem comes when a senior requires around the clock care. Surely, at this point, a nursing home is needed. Not necessarily. Live-in care is becoming increasingly popular. You still get to live in your own home but you also have the company of a caregiver who is there to look after you and you alone. Live-in care can help with all aspects of daily life.

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.
