At-Home Care: What Can You Expect?

You may have noticed that your grandparents look a bit overwhelmed and weary lately. Age takes asignificant toll on their motor skills, making it difficult for them to carry on with daily tasks such as cooking, bathing or even changing clothes.

Make sure you know the extent of the home care needs for your seniors before hiring home care providers.

High Quality, Compassionate Elderly Care At Home: The Best Services!

As we grow older, our ability to manage even the most simplest of tasks—like walking, bathing—becomes an everyday challenge.
Many older adults would rather have a stay-at-home arrangement than move into a care facility to help them through this new phase. 

This is the right choice for you or the senior in your life, if minor assistance is needed with daily activities. The home care services from iCare Proslets seniors enjoy a close network with the nearby friends and family, while ensuring that they have quick and reliable care at home, as they continue to maintain their independence within the comfort of their home.

How do I know if home care is right for me?

It’s completely natural to want to stay home at an advanced age. However, if you are still undecided between opting for a professional care facility or getting home care services, take a look at your health condition, budgets, and study each alternative thoroughly.

How can home care providers help?

As a senior, you may be used to handling all your chores all by yourself. But there is no denying the fact that it gets more and more difficult with age. You might need to rely on family members for help. Home care services like ours can be of tremendous help. We can help provide services depending in your support needs and general health.

Personal care

Home care services for the elderly include providing help with daily activities such as bathing, dressing and meal preparation. 

The help can be available for a few hours or you can opt to have live-in caregivers available 24 hours a day. Your Certified Nursing Assistants can also provide medication reminders and take blood pressure etc.

Respite care

Sometimes the stay-at-home caregivers need a break from taking care of the elderly in their lives. Respite care services can provide qualified help for a few hours a day to provide the regular family caretakers with a break,so they can run errands or take some time out for themselves. 

During the duty hours, the respite services can offer help with changing, eating, medication or any other usual care-taking chores.

Long distance care giving

The Intelligent Communication Management Platform such as the one available with iCarePros lets adult children stay in touch and up-to-date with their parents or grandparents as well as at-home caregivers. This helps them achieve peace of mind that the seniors have access to compassionate living assistance.
