What Type of Home Care Service is the Right Fit for You?
Home care covers a large variety of your basic activities of daily living (ADL’s). For those who aren’t already familiar with all of the benefits, it can be difficult to decipher exactly which cares are the right ones for you. Here is a breakdown of the services provided to help you choose which is the most beneficial to you and your family.
Companionship is important in maintaining emotional wellbeing. People who have good mental health can recover faster from illnesses and adapt more easily to changes in their situation. During companionship shifts we strive to get to know and understand our clients so we can engage them in activities that they are passionate about. Whether you’re leaving your loved one to go to work or just need some time to run errands, a caregiver can be there to socialize, play cards, go on an outing, look through photo albums, etc.
Sometimes even doing simple tasks like washing dishes and doing laundry can become harder with age. Your home care caregiver can be there to help you or your loved one keep up with cleaning chores.
Caregivers can also provide cares that span beyond companionship and cleaning. Personal cares are given to clients who have limited mobility or are recovering from an illness or surgery. Personal cares provided include bathing, bathroom/catheter assistance, and dressing.
Longer shifts such as 24, 12 and 8-hour services often include a mix of cleaning, companionship, and personal cares. A caregiver can be there as much or as little as needed to reduce stress and risks of injury.
