Home Care for Senior

Home care is changing rapidly as time passes by. Traditionally, care for a senior family member is the responsibility of the immediate family. However, in the modern society, seniors are left behind in nursing homes. Rather moving your loved ones into a nursing facility give them the privilege to live with dignity via in home care program.

What is home care?

Home care is also known as in-home care, custodial care, social care or home health care, simply because assistance and care are being given at home. Senior care services are mostly provided with healthcare professionals who are well- trained and mentally-equipped such as caregivers, nurses, doctors, occupational therapists, physical therapist, and medical social workers.
What is the importance of home care providers?
Home care providers deliver wellness programs and medical services to elderly people in their own home. They are specialize in giving high quality of medical services not just to seniors but also with home-bound individuals. Home care agencies are the most trusted and reliable group of individuals who are working together with network of home care professionals.
What are the services that most home care agencies provide?
The elderly care industry provides short-term and long-term services. Below are common care assistance and services we provide:

• Bathing
• Laundry
• Cooking
• Feeding
• Medication management
• Overnight service
• Gait support

Which is better an independent provider or a full-service agency?

Considering the cost, an independent provider is much cheaper but it needs careful legwork because you are hiring your own employee which is entitled with benefits. You will also conduct your own background checks unlike with a full-service agency, the billing, social security, and tax issues are simpler. If you do not like the performance of the caregiver, you can ask for a replacement.

Now, you must be careful in choosing your care provider. Here are the five basic tips in choosing a elderly care provider.
5 Tips in Choosing Home Care Provider

  • 1. Choose reputable home care agency with compassionate and trained caregivers/nurses/medical worker.
  • 2. Conduct an interview for background checking before taking the person inside your home.
  • 3. Orient the person with the tasks to be given including the payment procedure, rules and regulations,
    and termination of contract.
  • 4. Listen and be watchful on how the person answers to your questions.
  • 5. Check thoroughly the references of the candidate.
  • The Benefits of Senior Care and Assistance

    Consider an in-home care provider to provide 24 hours of health care services. It guarantees maximum care for your loved ones which is highly required for elderly patient. Personalized care will make your parents, grandma or grandpa to feel safe and comfortable. It enhances the longevity of their lives.
    Most seniors are seeking for emotional support from their families. Senior care services help to meet the needed emotional assistance. Being at home, they can feel maximum comfort and be able to enjoy their lives.
    There Is No Place Like Home
    Most people do not want to send their loved ones in nursing homes. Senior care will be the solution to your problem. Even your grandma or grandpa does not want to live away from home and from your family. Remember that your own home offers incomparable comfort and happiness.

    The time a caregiver can provide a person vary but can range from one hour, two hours or more few days per week or most of the time. There are also instances that the personal caregiver lives in the home of the person he/she is taking care of and makes himself/herself available round the clock. However, with this type of set up, two or more caregivers are often needed to share the responsibility.
    There is really no defined training for a personal caregiver. However, most of them have undergone on-the-job trainings. Some caregivers are already certified nurse assistants. When greater medical assistance or supervision is required, visiting nurse or home nurse must be contacted instead of a caregiver. The jobs of personal caregivers differ significantly.
    These personal workers sometimes do the housework like cleaning, changing beds and more. They can sometimes shop or prepare the meals for their patients or clients. They can help in showering or bathing, changing diapers, doing personal grooming and many other personal care requirements and needs. There are also times that they help clients or patients with limited mobility problem to move and lift.

    The Right Home Care Service for our Loved Ones

    <h1>The Right Home Care Service for our Loved Ones</h1>


    For some of us, taking our elders in a nursing home is not the right move. Thus, we opt for home health care as a better option. Instead of moving them into a facility that offers long-term care, older adults choose to stay in their homes as much as possible. This can be the right choice if one only needs minor assistance with their daily routines. However, there are other things you should consider as you start exploring the wide array of available home care services.


    <h2>Does In Home Care Right for Us?</h2>


    It is normal for us to want to stay in the comfort of our own home as we grow older, but we need to take a step back and look at the bigger picture before we come up with the right decision. Most of the time, the decision to leave home was made right after we experience an emergency or a sudden loss. Hence, coping up with the adjustments are more difficult and painful. We should take a careful look with our options, budget, and other alternatives. Every home situation is unique, and there are some factors to weigh. Following are some of the issues to evaluate and determine if an elderly home care will work for us.


    • Accessibility and location – is your home located in suburban or rural area? Does it require you to drive a lot? Is the area safe and accessible by public transit?
    • Home maintenance – does your home have a lot of steps? Is it easily modified?
    • Support system – do you have relatives and friends living nearby? Most of the elders prefer to rely on only with family members for help but as the needs increase, they might be no longer available, so it is important to check the proximity of community services and activities available as well.


    <h3>The Family’s Take on Senior Home Care</h3>


    Each of us has different family support and structure. Before we decide on the method on proper caring of senior in the family, we should consider the family’s culture, structure, and the members’ expectations. You may also have alternative plans if you prefer your family less involved as possible. This conversation is not easy, so it is better to discuss these issues than wait for an emergency where options are limited. You can have opinions from professionals to help defuse family tensions as well.


    <h4>Finding the Right Home Care Agency</h4>


    After you already found out the needs and wants of the family, it is the right time to evaluate the appropriate home care provider. More often, the best referrals come from family, friends, and colleagues. Ask your trusted people such as the family doctor if they know care providers. You can acquire referrals from agencies or independent providers.


    If you prefer home care agency, prepare your budget as it usually comes more expensive. Check for the agency’s license, history, and the background of the caregiver to ensure everyone’s safety. Designating the right people to take care of your elders is crucial for their overall health so make sure that every aspect is well-taken into consideration.
