Determining the Level of Home Care for Your Elderly Loved One
Does your elderly parent or loved one refuse to leave their home despite the evident need for assistance? Thousands of families nationwide are faced with the difficult decision of how to provide care to a loved one who insists they are capable of living independently at home. Fortunately, Home Care Assistance San Diego offers the ideal senior care solution. With home care, seniors are able to remain within the comfort of their own home and have the freedom to choose a care schedule that meets their individual needs.
The following information is designed to help families determine the level of home care that will best provide their loved one with the most safety and comfort, while promoting their independence.
Not all seniors require full time care and monitoring. Many seniors have a caregiver only in the morning, during the night or on weekends. Seniors receive minimal assistance with activities of daily living such as cooking, laundry and light housekeeping. Care is offered on a flexible schedule that allows seniors to maintain their regular routines and independence. If your elderly loved one has recently lost their ability to drive, our hourly care plans are ideal for transportation for errands or scheduled medical appointments.
Live-in care provides seniors with around the clock care and monitoring. Caregivers help with activities of daily living, as well as with personal care including bathing, dressing, grooming and incontinence. If your elderly loved one is bedbound or suffers from problems with immobility, live-in care will provide them with the most assistance and comfort. Live-in care is also a great option for seniors who prefer the assistance, comfort and companionship of a full time caregiver.
If your loved one suffers from a chronic condition such as Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s or is recovering from a stroke, fall or injury, specialty care is essential to their wellbeing. Each condition requires care from a highly trained and experienced caregiver to minimize the symptoms of the condition, as well as to ensure your loved one’s safety. Home Care Assistance caregivers provide specialty care assistance on an hourly basis to support existing caregiving routines or on a full-time basis to provide respite to overwhelmed families.
At Home Care Assistance of San Diego, we are committed to providing quality care for seniors. Before we begin providing care, one of our expert Care Managers will consult with the senior, their family and their doctor to determine the patient’s needs, abilities and preferences. With this information, we will design a customized care plan for your loved one. Our home care assessment ensures that your loved one receives exceptional care that enhances their quality of life.
