Benefits of In-Home Senior Care
Why do you need to go anywhere else but Home?
From companionship to ensuring there is someone around to look after your loved one’s well-being when you can’t be there, in-home senior care has many benefits. Here are a few things to think about and keep in mind while researching your options:
Comforts of Home & Family:
The #1 advantage of in-home Senior Care is keeping the people and things that you love close by, surrounded by familiarity, so your loved one can keep a strong sense of self and of independence. With our Senior Care, you can stay in the home you love, with the backyard flower garden or patio set to watch the birds, close to those friends and family that stop by for visits and holidays, and with your sunny kitchen for your morning cup of coffee.
Personalized Care Plans:
The caregiver that arrives at your loved one’s door has only one purpose, and that’s to ensure that your loved one gets 100% of our attention and the quality compassionate care they deserve. Your loved one gets one-on-one care at the necessary level to achieve the ultimate comfort. Whether it is overnight, or a few hours per day of care, DHS Health Care Service offers a wide range of services to suit your loved one’s individual needs and Senior Care personalized to your needs and wants.
Independence, Confidence, and Comfort:
Where is your loved one most comfortable? Where does he or she feel most confident and open to taking part in activities? The answer, most likely, is their own home. Not only is the recovery process easier and faster in the calming familiarity of the home environment. But with a range of home care services, your loved one also has the control and ability to lead a meaningful, independent life. These home care services range from medication reminders and help with range-of-motion activities to daily chores, meal preparation and grocery shopping.
Family Support & Participation:
A Case Coordinator will develop a plan to involve your family in the care process. We like to keep everyone in clear communication about the needs and changing requirements of your loved one. This includes routine calls or visits with you and your loved one; as needed to revise your senior care plan on an ongoing basis. Communication is very important to the success of your senior care plan.
Your Peace of Mind:
When you bring a DHS Health Care Service caregiver into your loved one’s life; you’re doing more than ensuring compassionate care for your loved one. You’re also ensuring peace of mind for you. In most cases, people often find that offering the range and level of care or knowledge needed to be able to meet your loved one’s needs and deserves is not possible. With kids, a job and a family life of your own, it’s unreasonable or impossible to layer the added demands and responsibility of being a full-time caregiver for your senior parents. Taking advantage of a professional caregiver is not giving up on your loved one or being selfish. On the contrary, you’re being selfless by bolstering your own love and support with professional, quality in-home personal support.
