Overnight Assistance

Many times the most difficult part for a senior living at home is being alone at night. Homecare personal services can be extended into night time care. Seniors may need multiple services including assistance with toileting, medication management, bathing, catheter care or wound care. The caregiver will be alert throughout the night so you and your loved one can rest peacefully.

Live-In Care Assistance

Patients who have cognitive and/or physical disabilities can enjoy the familiarity and comfort of their homes by having a live-in caregiver providing needed services. You will even have the option of choosing the same caregiver. By having the same caregiver in the home, your loved one will receive a more consistent level of care.

Post Surgery Assistance

Homecare personal services are not only reserved for those who are elderly or have disabilities. The first few weeks after a hospital discharge can be extremely critical for a patient. Even if they did not have surgery, they may need assistance around the home due to mobility restrictions or other complications. Transportation and homemaking services may be needed during this time so the patient is able to recover without being rushed to return to their prior routine. The patient will also be assured that their privacy is protected at all times.

Companionship

It is not uncommon for those who need homecare assistance to also want someone around to simply provide companionship. Caregivers can not only offer assistance around the home with tasks, they can also play cards, write letters, go for walks with the client, or hold conversation.

Homecare personal services provide the optimal solution for seniors, disabled adults and others who need help at home and do not want to move to a long term care facility. The patient’s health and safety should always remain the most important priority.
