Everyone is looking forward to their retirement or senior years. It is the time to relax and enjoy what a person has planted for years. The problem is that it is also the time that most elders have less stamina and develop health issues. These hinder them from doing pleasurable and essential activities for their well-being. It should not be the case if they can get help from private sitters for the elderly near them. Living Well Family Care can help with these in North and South Carolina.
Private sitters for the seniors?
Private sitters for the elderly are the companions and assistants who provide help in anything they need to do. It includes fundamental tasks like
- Meal preparation and feeding
- Medicine reminders
- Prescribed exercise
- Maintaining good hygiene such as bathing, changing clothes, toileting, etc.
Private sitters can also assist in necessary chores like running errands, shopping, light housekeeping, laundry, setting up medical appointments, etc.
Usually, no definite rules require private sitters to take up formal education. But it is an advantage if they have an educational background and work experience in caregiving. After all, most seniors demand companions who at least have knowledge in CPR, first aid, or taking blood pressure.
However, it is imperative to note that doing any medical-related tasks, even the basic ones, may depend on a local government’s rule. Some states require going through training programs and passing the standards before doing these and other similar duties. When critical health issues are the priority, certified nursing assistants should be in charge.
