Does Your Loved One Need Assistance To Help Them Stay Independent At Home?

$

Quite often, an elderly individual isn’t ready to leave their home for independent living, an assisted living residence, or a nursing home, but still could use some assistance in their own home. Such assistance can range from periodic health care and personal grooming services, to 24-hour in-home caregiving. There are many options available and it’s best to know what they are and how they may help a senior living at home before researching particular care and service choices in your area. No doubt, there will be many additional questions you’ll have when considering senior home care and services, but this checklist can be a great help when thinking through the many options available.
Below are considerations to help you determine if senior home care is right for you.

Care Needs

Consider their care needs and make a list of things that need to be provided. Be able to show an example of a usual day, from the moment the wake until they return to bed and be sure to include a timeline of when they have their meals, naps, and other activities.

Hands-on Care

How much hands-on personal care is needed vs. the non-hands on companion care? If more companion care is needed, make a list of things that the care recipient likes to do.

Transportation Services

Consider their care needs and make a list of things that need to be provided. Be able to show an example of a usual day, from the moment the wake until they return to bed and be sure to include a timeline of when they have their meals, naps, and other activities.

Memory Loss

Is there memory loss? If so, have you had the type of Memory Loss diagnosed (Alzheimer’s Disease, Huntington’s Disease, Pick’s Disease, Frontal Lobe Dementia, Frontotemporal Dementia, Lewy Body Disease, Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus, Vascular Dementia, Parkinson’s Disease)? Blood clots and brain tumors may also cause dementia. A diagnosis of dementia type will help the agency to better understand the care needs and assign a Caregiver with the right type of training and qualifications.

Language

Do you need a Caregiver who speaks a certain language?

Hours

How many hours of care per day will you require? Review the list of services you will need performed during the care visit and decide on the minimum number of hours per day which would work as a starting point. The agency will need to know the hours of service to assign a Caregiver.

Dietary

Are there any special cooking requirements? Communicate any food allergies or specific cooking requests and consider how groceries will be purchased or delivered if the care recipient is unable to shop for groceries on their own.

Additional Skills

Are there any “skilled” care requirements, such as taking blood pressure, blood sugar testing, wound care or a feeding tube? Communicate if these specialized services will need to be performed or monitored.

Medication Reminders

What is the care recipients method for providing medication reminders? Do you know for sure if the medications are currently being taken correctly? Be able to provide a list of medications and the method of monitoring so the Agency will be aware of possible side effects and other requirements such as taking pills with or without food, etc.

We are a Quality Home Care Organization

Good news: today there are more options than ever for seniors who are starting to find daily living more challenging. No longer does such a circumstance mean one must leave their home to find help. Today the help can come to them — in their own home. And, as an added benefit, home care is a more cost-effective alternative to hospital care or other institutional care. Perhaps that’s why, increasingly, older people are choosing to live independent lives and take advantage of home care services.
