When a loved one needs some extra help around the house, you want to make sure that the in-home care worker is someone you can trust. Whether you need a permanent solution or you’re the primary caretaker and live in Dayton, Ohio in-home care can give you respite so you can come back to your duties refreshed and energized. In-home care can be a flexible and personalized option for the person receiving care - whether they need help with household tasks, companionship, medication reminders, or all of the above. Find out why these services are improving the quality of life of seniors not only in Dayton, Ohio but around the world.
For seniors living alone, companionship is an essential need. In-home care provides much-needed social interaction which is crucial to overall well-being. In-home care workers can watch movies or television, play cards or games or simply chat with the person receiving the care. In-home care workers will also take an interest in hobbies and crafts and do them with the person they are caring for, thereby improving hand-eye coordination and keeping the mind active. The company and presence of a caring human being can elevate the mood and prevent loneliness.
From mailing letters to picking up medication from the pharmacy, running errands can be a difficult task, especially for people with limited mobility. Perhaps because of their age, they are no longer able to drive. An in-home care worker can help with these types of tasks to keep life running as normal.
Seniors are more likely to slip and fall in the shower and bath, but you may not always be there to ensure this doesn’t happen. Even if a senior is self-sufficient and mobile, accidents can still happen. That’s why one of the services in-home care workers provide is being on stand-by during showers and baths.
Household tasks like mopping, taking out the garbage, and vacuuming can often become too much but they must be done! In-home care workers are happy to assist with challenging chores that help keep the home clean and tidy. A personal schedule can be created so that they can tackle the tasks that require immediate attention.
Permanent or Temporary?
In-home care can be a permanent arrangement, where the worker comes by regularly, or temporary, where the worker comes until they are no longer needed. Whether in-home care is needed daily or a few times a week, we work with you to ensure your in-home care worker is there when you need them. In both permanent and temporary in-home care situations, an ongoing relationship is established and the worker gets to know the person they are working with on a personal level.
