Home care works by having a caregiver come to the home of a senior and provide help and assistance as needed. Because the needs of seniors are diverse, the form the care takes will differ from case to case. For clients who need a lot of assistance, they can get that with home care. For clients who need only a little help here and there, that is also an option.
Here are some of the different types of home care that Executive Care offers:
Many seniors live somewhat isolated lives and this can cause mental and emotional problems. With companionship care, a caregiver will come to the client’s home and talk and interact with them, listen to any problems or concerns they may have, and help to keep them connected to the outside world.
For many seniors, taking care of their homes becomes more difficult than taking care of themselves. With homemaking services, caregivers can help seniors take care of their homes, lessening the burden of stress and anxiety. Homemaking services can include bed making, laundry, and transportation, among many others.
Personal care sees a caregiver provide help with personal activities. Activities such as getting into and out of bed or wheelchairs, help using the bathroom, self-grooming, and others.
Some clients require around-the-clock care, but this is not an impediment to home care. You can hire a qualified and trustworthy live-in caregiver to live in the client’s home and provide care as needed.
Executive Care can also connect you with caregivers who are skilled and experienced in helping clients with specific ailments, such as Alzheimer’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, and more.
Executive Care can also arrange for Registered Nurses to meet clients in their home to provide certain services such as assessments, simple wound care, bladder catheterization, and others.
