When loved ones age, their abilities to perform certain everyday activities may begin to falter to the point that extra assistance is needed. For family members, understanding care needs and what is involved with different levels of care is an important first step in coordinating a long-term care plan. Activities of daily living are often the first items of care that an elderly person will require. Traditionally, these include, but are not limited to:
- Personal hygiene
- Walking, transfers and repositioning
- Meal planning and preparation
- Housekeeping – cleaning/laundry
Other non-medical services to consider including in a care plan are companionship services, as well as respite services to provide relief and rest to the family caregiver. In-home care agencies, like Partners in Healthcare, are valuable resources for families. We provide an assessment to determine the care requirements of each client and then work with the patient or family to develop a plan for care, provide guidance along the way, and implement and monitor care and services. As industry experts, in-home care agencies know how to maximize available resources to assure that all needs are met, and that the care at home is safe, comfortable, and efficient.
