If you are caring for a loved one, here are ten ways homecare support can help:
Home health care professionals can be there when you aren’t able to be: If you are caregiving from a distance, home health care can give you peace of mind. Trained and qualified professionals can assess safety risks and make simple corrections in the home – from placing a mat on a slippery floor, to recommendations for ambulatory assistance.
Home care supports activities of daily living (ADLs): In-home services allow adults to receive day-to-day help with the personal care they need, preserving their dignity and maintaining a good quality of life. Assistance with activities of daily living can include bathing, grooming, and medication reminders.
Access to skilled nursing care at home: Skilled medical care can be delivered at home by thoroughly supervised nurses, certified, licensed, and knowledgeable about high-technology medical equipment. Home health care can ensure that your loved one’s complex medical needs are met.
Support with diet and nutrition: Adults age 65 and older, people with chronic conditions, and those recently discharged from a hospital or nursing facility are likely to be nutritionally at-risk. Aging, bed rest, illness, and injury can all contribute to the loss of lean body mass. Home care may include nutritional counseling and home-cooked meals to protect your loved ones against malnutrition.
Medication management: If your loved one is on multiple prescriptions it can be confusing to manage. Home health care professionals can ensure the right medications are being taken at the right times to control health conditions and prevent harmful drug interactions.
Home health care professionals provide caring companionship: Research shows that aging adults stay healthier with social interaction. Home health aides can become trusted friends for walks, reading, cards, games, movies, meals, and other social activities. Accompaniment on errands such as grocery shopping, medical appointments, and other activities are also added benefits.
Home care helps with light household chores: When aging adults struggle the daily demands of housework, such as laundry, vacuuming, dishes, and simple chores home care helps to consistently maintain a safe and healthy living environment.
Home health care clients have comparable or better health outcomes: Research has shown that clinical results are comparable or better with fewer complications when home care is provided to individuals with chronic conditions such as pneumonia, diabetes, or COPD.
One-on-one focus and support: Home health care services are truly unique, providing meaningful, one-on-one personal and skilled care that builds strong bonds between professionals and their clients.
