Provided by a licensed Home Health Agency
According to the AARP’s “Home and Community Preferences” survey, more than three-quarters of those aged 50 and up want to age in place. Unfortunately, illnesses and disabilities can complicate matters for those who are aging. If your loved one is struggling with aging in place, in-home care can help.
Finding in-home care can be a daunting experience because you want to find only the best services for your family and you may wonder, “So what exactly is the care that my loved one requires?” Here is some information for you.
What Exactly is In-Home Care?
In-home Care allows people to age in place, or continue living independently in their own home. Personal care and companion care are the two types of in-home care.
A companion provides social interaction and can assist with daily tasks and chores. They can also arrange for and accompany clients to medical appointments, social activities, and errands. Companion care primarily provides emotional support and socialization to the client.
Companion care services include the following:
If a family member of yours lives independently and wants to stay in their home but has difficulty with certain daily tasks, companion care can be extremely beneficial to their happiness and wellbeing.
A personal care aide can assist with activities of daily living (ADLs) as well as more personal tasks. They may also assist with the companion care duties outlined above.
Personal care services include the following:
If your loved one needs help with personal tasks, personal care can provide you both with the peace of mind they require to age in place.
The first step toward receiving care is arranging for an in-home assessment. Before beginning home health services, a registered nurse will visit the client and develop a care plan.
