More than 7.6 million Americans receive home care, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The number is much greater when you consider that it does not include informal care which is care given by a friend or family member. Home care is generally defined as non-medical support services delivered at the home of the senior. The aim of home care is to allow seniors to remain at home longer rather than enter an assisted living community, nursing home or other type of senior care. Home care may be appropriate if a senior prefers to stay at home but needs assistance with activities of daily living.
The following are the few things our caregivers can do for your loved ones.
Hourly home care allows clients to hire our caregivers on an hourly or as-needed basis. By helping with daily activities, our caregivers enable clients to maintain their normal daily routines and age in place. We have NO HOURLY MINIMUMS and we offer our service from 1 hour per day to 24 hours per day.
Live-in care is for seniors who need around-the-clock assistance from a caregiver. Assistance is generally non-medical and includes such tasks as medication management, shopping, and assistance with activities of daily living (ADL). In live in care, caregiver stays with the client 24 hours.
Respite care provides temporary relief for a primary caregiver or family member, enabling them to take a much-needed break. Respite care can take place in your own home, at day-care centers, or at residential or nursing facilities that offer overnight stays.
Approximately 20 percent seniors face rehospitalization which can be frustrating and stressful for the patient as well as for the family members. Post Hospitalization Care can help your loved ones to stay safe and sound at home by providing the assistance they need and help them recover well and continue the path of wellness.
Caring for a person with Alzheimer's or dementia often involves a team of people. Whether you provide daily caregiving, participate in decision making, or simply care about a person with the disease — we have resources to help.
Our trained and experienced caregivers engage clients in intellectual, physical and emotional interactions that complement medical treatment and improve the quality of life for seniors and their families.
