We offer in home care to seniors who want to the keep the independence of living in their own homes but who do need some assistance with everyday tasks.
The reasons why some people need assistance in the home can be straightforward and simple or they can be complex and varied. Almost everyone with a choice will prefer to live in their own place over a residential home or in a long-term hospital care facility. Thanks to the rise in home help services this is now more doable than at any time ever. However, convincing someone to accept help can sometimes be a challenge, to say the least.
How We Can Help
The challenges in home care persuasion can be particularly difficult with the elderly, most of whom have lived an independent life. How do you even approach the subject of a dementia test to a parent, for example? You may notice signs that they themselves cannot see, things like:
- Memory disorders
- Personality changes
- Impaired reasoning
Dementia and Alzheimer's disease are not the only reasons why people need help from those who work in home care sectors. Fragility and disabilities can also prevent us from carrying out every-day errands and common chores. You don't have to be old either. There are people who have undergone major surgery and others who are recovering from bad accidents who also need help around the house.
Everyone who works in home care undergoes professional training. They are also handpicked and matched with the specific needs of those they care for. The two sectors in the home help sphere are:
- General Home Care
- Home Health Care
Those who work in general home care typically include people who carry out non-medical assistance. They will assist with things like bathing and dressing, light housework, meal preparation and so on.
Health home care in Berrien County, MI, provides medical care and well as general home care. These caregivers may be nurses or medical aides trained in a specialist area.
