There’s a rising trend of elderly people choosing to stay in their own homes as opposed to residing in a care home or another similar facility. It’s less stressful, provides more comfort when it is needed most, and if often much more convenient to everyone involved.
However, it may get to a point where care is required – be it around the clock care, assistance with preparing meals, or any other facet of care. If moving to a care home isn’t an option, then there is plenty that can be done in terms of home care services for seniors.
Home care does cover quite a broad spectrum, but the basics tend to fall around either 24-hour care, night care, or other kinds of care which can be intermittent or mixed with other, more comprehensive care plans.
For example; it may be that you only require care during the day, in the form of a visit to ensure that your medication for the week is set out with the correct dosage and labels, and perhaps instructions from your caregiver if need be. Or you could simply require some company, which a caregiver would be more than happy to provide.
On the other hand, it may be that more frequent care is needed, perhaps even 24-hour care. In this instance, it may be that you have a carer during the daytime helping you with anything you may need, and then have a different carer doing a waking or sitting service on the nighttime.
Or, it could be something in-between – perhaps that you require assistance with shopping, paying bills, or another part of your daily routine.
