10 Ways Home Care Can Benefit You
We often get questions from people who aren’t completely sure what in-home care can include. We’re here to give you 10 ways we can help you! For more questions about our services, call (605) 275-2344.
1. Living at Home
Honestly, there is no place like home. When using home care your loved one can experience personal one-on-one care from the comfort of their own home.
2. Peace of Mind
If you’re caring for a loved one from far away, or are worried about leaving them during the day while you’re at work, a caregiver can help. Your home care aide can put your mind at ease while you’re away by ensuring the care of your loved one.
3. Personalized One-on-One Care
When a caregiver comes to your home, the focus is based solely on you. Each person has different needs and the services provided to you should reflect that. Whether it’s 24-hour care, morning and night assistance getting ready for bed or ready for the day, cleaning, or meal preparations, a caregiver can be there to assist you any time and day of the week. Services are customized to fit each and every client’s needs separately. Home care is not a ‘one-size-fits all” industry.
4. Flexible Scheduling
A caregiver can be there to help any time of the day, 7 days a week.
Caregivers can assist with many of the daily household chores that may be more difficult to manage than they used to be. Laundry, sweeping, mopping, vacuuming, and dusting are just a few of the services that your home care aide can do for you.
6. Meal Preparation
Aging, injury, recent discharge from a hospital or nursing home, or illness can make it more difficult for your loved one to provide themselves with the nutrition they need to stay healthy. Your caregiver can provide home-cooked meals that meet your nutrition standards.
7. Medication Reminders
Dealing with multiple prescriptions and doses can be confusing and hard to manage. Your home care aide can help ensure that your loved one is taking the proper doses at the right times.
Running everyday errands can become a hassle when driving isn’t an option anymore. Your caregiver can drive you to visit family members, doctor appointments, the grocery store, or anywhere else you may need to go.
9. Errand Assistance
If leaving the home is more inconvenient than it used to be, your home care aide can also run errands for your loved one. Your caregiver can ease your mind knowing that these small, everyday tasks are being taken care of.
10. Exercise Assistance
Many times after leaving a nursing home or hospital, or just with aging in general, exercise is highly encouraged. Caregivers can go through each exercise with you to ensure you’re regaining strength and remaining as healthy as possible.
