Jane Austen said it best: “There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort.” Many agree with Austen, too. In fact, a vast majority of older adults wish to age in the place in the comfort of their own homes.
However, when age-related issues or illnesses make daily life and activities more difficult, families often wonder if their loved ones can remain at home or if moving to a care facility is best. The good news is that, with professional personal care services, older and disabled adults can continue to live at home while ensuring their care needs are met.
How Can a Personal Care Assistant Help My Loved One?
The services provided by a personal care assistant can provide a wide range of benefits to older loved ones. Our services can include any of the following:
- Personal care assistance such as bathing, dressing, and hygiene care
- Meal planning and preparation in accordance with dietary needs and restrictions
- Grocery shopping and errand running
- Medication reminders
- Light housekeeping and laundry assistance
- Assistance with walking and transferring
- Transportation to and from medical appointments and social gatherings
- And more
For those with chronic health issues such as Alzheimer’s, diabetes, or Parkinson’s disease, personal care services play an important role in improving health and wellbeing. Our personal caregivers are able to provide specialized care seniors with chronic conditions or disabilities need in order to maintain their independence while also staying healthy and well.
No matter the condition or need, our comprehensive approach to care ensures that your loved ones receive the necessary support to enhance their safety, comfort, and quality of life.
We work closely with our clients and their families to develop a care plan that not only meets each person’s unique needs, but also brings joy, provides mental stimulation, and encourages physical and emotional wellbeing.
Our personal caregivers are in regular communication with a client’s loved ones to share progress, answer questions, and simply check in by providing companion care.
