Exploring personal care services with Miami Valley Homecare

December 18, 2019 at 5:00 AM

There comes a time in many people's lives when they need extra assistance at home. Both aging and adverse medical events can leave you feeling vulnerable. At Miami Valley Homecare, we offer personal care services to people throughout Miami Valley. We're here to explain what we do and why our approach to home care services is different.

A personalized approach to care services

Miami Valley Homecare was born when a loved one suffered from a stroke. We looked at the different care options available and decided we would rather have something with a personal touch. Although franchises can do a lot of good work in caring for people, they're often driven by targets. That isn't what we wanted for our loved ones, and so we decided to take a different approach.

Care is our number one concern and we treat each person as though they're the loved one who first inspired our services all those years ago. We believe that word of mouth is advertising that money can't buy. Those who we care for regularly recommend us to others and we continue to strive to exceed their expectations.

Helping people maintain their independence

We believe that excellent personal care helps people remain in their homes in as independent a way as possible. We assess each person to see what they're currently struggling with. Using our assessment, we can create a custom care plan that's unique to their circumstances. 

Helping your loved one maintain their independence is important for lots of reasons. Those who are able to remain independent usually enjoy a better state of health for longer. They're also less likely to suffer from conditions such as Alzheimer's. When they do have an Alzheimer's diagnosis, they're less likely to suffer from rapid cognitive decline. Overall, independence is essential for your loved one's wellbeing. 

Delivering around the clock care

Our drop-in care services are there for people who require a little assistance. Between our calls, they're able to care for themselves and keep themselves safe. Unfortunately, some people reach the stage when they need a consistent presence. When that happens, they find themselves choosing between entering a care home or having a live-in carer.

At Miami Valley Homecare, we provide around the clock personal care services. From meal preparation and cleaning through to personal care, we can do it all. We always act with absolute sensitivity and empathy. Your loved one's dignity will remain important to us at all times.

Brief care periods and long-term options

Not everyone who needs a carer requires their presence forever. Some of our clients come to us because they're recovering following surgery. Or, they may need our help because a family member who usually cares for them is out of town. When that's the case, we can create a care package that matches your time requirements.

If you feel as though you need long-term support, we can create a plan that meets your needs. Whether you want one visit a day or someone to assist you with each mealtime, we can work to meet your requirements.

If you feel as though our personal care services are right for you or your loved one, your journey should start with an assessment. We'll look at what you're currently struggling with and discuss ways we can make your life easier. We'll also ask you what you expect from a personalized care plan and whether there's anything that's important to you. From there, we'll present you with your options and begin working together.

If you're in Miami Valley and you require care services, we want to hear from you. To discuss your plan, call 937 671 2273.
