The need for personal home care assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), such as bathing, dressing, transferring, toileting and feeding, often leads seniors or their family members to seek the support of home health aide services. Boca Home Care Services specializes in senior in-home care by matching clients with experienced and compassionate caregivers, who can manage these daily tasks. These ADLs are generally also the triggers for long-term care insurance policies to begin payments for a claim, with dementia being another major determinant for insurance payments.
However, family or spousal caregivers often find that it’s not just personal care tasks that become overwhelming, but also the everyday responsibilities required to take care of oneself and the household. Seniors themselves might feel exhausted by these tasks, particularly if they’re living alone. This is where home health care services, such as those offered by Boca Home Care Services, can make a significant difference in the lives of seniors and their caregivers.
Professional caregivers, including home health aides, nursing assistants and companions, provide a range of in-home care services that, when utilized even just a few times a week, can improve seniors’ safety, well-being and overall quality of life. These services include transportation, shopping, cooking, laundry, light housekeeping, exercises and walking, medication reminders, mail and bill review, social contact and ongoing observation.
Home health care services like these offer peace of mind to family members, knowing that their loved one is being looked after. Additionally, it provides much-needed respite for the spouse or family caregiver, giving them well-deserved breaks. This “time off” is particularly crucial for elderly spouses caring for a partner with Alzheimer’s or other types of dementia.
