Older adults, disabled individuals, or patients recovering from surgery often need an extra hand at home. Home care services can fit a wide variety of needs, both large and small. Receiving care at home can help a senior to age more comfortably rather than face a move elsewhere, improve the quality of life of a disabled person, and reduce the possibility of a hospital readmission for those recovering from surgery or an illness. Here are a few ways in-home caregivers can assist you or a loved one:
- Light Housekeeping: This includes household chores like vacuuming, doing dishes, laundry, changing beds, and dusting. If your loved one has difficulty performing these chores, ask us about our housekeeping services.
- Companionship and Socialization: Living alone when you cannot drive or have easy access to public transportation can be incredibly isolating and lead to depression. An in-home caregiver provides companionship and mind-stimulating activities as well as transportation to events, social gatherings, a local museum, and more.
- Personal Care (usually required daily or several times a week): When assistance is needed with bathing, toileting, eating, dressing, grooming, walking, getting out of bed or a chair, or making certain that medications are taken as prescribed; a specially trained in-home caregiver can help.
- Nighttime Care: For a person who is unable to get out of bed to the toilet, or when dementia causes “sundowning”, extra assistance throughout the night from an in-home caregiver at Heaven at Home can give a family caregiver a solid night’s rest.
