What Are Some In-home Care Senior Care Services?

3 Jul 2022

These days, it is not uncommon to have grandparents, parents, and even your in-laws living under your roof. But living with someone else can be a bit tricky, especially with different lifestyles and schedules. 

In-home care can help you and your family get through the day and make everyone feel happy and safe, but you need to know what to look for in a senior care service.

PERSONAL CARE

Personal or custodial care refers to assistance with daily living tasks including dressing, bathing, or meal preparation. Personal care services can be offered by home health aides for a few hours per day or live-in care that is available 24/7. Additionally, they could offer occasional support with tasks like monitoring blood pressure or reminding patients to take their medications.

HEALTH CARE

Trained experts, such as occupational therapists, social workers, and home health nurses, can provide certain healthcare services in the comfort of a patient’s home. You may be responsible for out-of-pocket costs if you do not check with your insurer or health service to determine what coverage is available. Home hospice care is also an option.

HOUSEHOLD MAINTENANCE

It takes a lot of effort to maintain a household. You might check into washing, shopping, gardening, housekeeping, and handyman services if you’re struggling to keep up. Financial and healthcare management may also be useful if you are having problems keeping up with your payments and appointments.

DAY PROGRAMS

Day programs or adult day care can help you keep occupied during the day with activities and interaction, while also giving your carers a rest. This can be beneficial for both of you. There are various types of daycare programs, some of which focus solely on socialization, while others offer limited medical services or specialize in conditions such as the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease.

TRANSPORTATION

Transportation is a critical concern for people of advanced age. It is possible that you are having trouble driving or that you just don’t want to drive at night. Having access to trains, buses, ridesharing applications, reduced-cost taxis, and senior transportation services can help you maintain your social network and preserve your independence for a longer period of time.
