What You Should Know About Personal Care For Seniors

What You Should Know About Personal Care For Seniors

Personal care can transform and even save the lives of seniors. If you’re not sure if personal care is right for you or an elderly loved one, here are some things you should know about personal care for seniors.

What is included in in-home personal care for seniors?

Personal care helps seniors in their everyday lives. Personal care helps seniors take care of themselves. At Executive Care we have a term for this. We call these tasks the “Activities of Daily Living”. These are the tasks seniors must do to take care of themselves every day. These personal care tasks include:

  • Eating, bathing, using bath equipment, dental/denture care, grooming, and hair care
  • Self-administered medications, basic skin care, and nail maintenance
  • Emptying or changing external urinary collecting devices, including catheter bags
  • Colostomy care and emptying ostomy bag
  • Using urinals, bedpans, and/or commodes
  • Bowel and bladder incontinence care
  • Normal body movements and exercise including following prescribed exercise programs
  • Getting in and out of bed, wheelchairs, and other chairs
  • And more

Personal Care Can Be Provided To Seniors Within Their Own Private Homes. Seniors Don’t Necessarily Have To Move Into A Senior Care Facility.

When most people think of senior care, they think of personal care. And when most people think of personal care, they think of senior care communities. Many senior care communities are great, and many seniors are happy there. But senior care communities are definitely not the right place for every senior.

Many seniors are emotionally invested in their homes. They have lived there for years and maybe even decades. Leaving their home signals, to them, the beginning of the end. They don’t want to move into a senior care facility and might even refuse to accept all care if it means having to leave their homes. Thankfully, that won’t be necessary. Personal care is available to seniors in their very own homes. Executive Care is proud to offer in-home personal care.

Personal Care Can Simply Be About Helping Seniors Get Around More Easily And Ensuring They Take Care Of Themselves. Personal Care Can Also Save Lives. But There Are More Subtle Benefits, Too.

When a senior receives personal care, especially in-home, it is easy to add on other senior care services to improve their lives as well. Homemaking services help seniors manage their homes and companionship care looks after seniors’ mental health and emotional wellbeing. In-home personal care is also often cheaper than moving into a senior care community because no extra rent or fees are required. To learn more about personal care for seniors, please contact us.

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.
