In-Home Care to Enhance Well-Being
Your mother or father may have reached an age where they are in good health, but need a little help here and there to get their daily responsibilities achieved. You may be far away, or have your own responsibilities that make it difficult to provide as much assistance as you would like. A-1 Domestic Professional Services offer non-medical home-care services that provide seniors with just enough assistance to help maintain their daily lives and household. Taking of advantage of programs offered by A-1 Domestic can help your loved one just enough to take assist with daily tasks, while allowing them to remain in their own home environment.
Safety and Security
Our non-medical home care focuses primarily on helping seniors in their daily lives. The majority of seniors that live alone may need assistance at the beginning of the day to get dressed, groomed, and taking any necessary medications. Additionally, many need help towards the end of the day getting prepared for bed, as well as even all through the night. Apprehension and anxiety about the nighttime can make it difficult for seniors to fall asleep and unwind. Regardless, however, one of the most important needs for seniors who live by themselves is often simple companionship; the need to have someone there to keep them company. A-1 Domestic Professional Services provide caregivers who understand this need, along with the physical assistance necessary for daily living. Stimulating conversation, as well as interaction with another individual, is one of the main key components in keeping the mind engaged and alert. There is much to be said about the healing aspects of companionship, as simply having someone there to hold one's hand or to simply read along with side-by-side, can do wonders for the mind, body, and spirit. With our non-medical home care services, A-1 Domestic will provide clients with compassionate caregivers who understand the importance of companionship and friendship.
Finding the Right In-Home Caregiver
In the past, medical crisis, illness, or injury for the elderly often meant the end of living in one's own home and moving to a hospital or given facility. However, we have seen a new movement in home-care that, in recent years, has allowed many seniors who suffer from a variety of chronic illness and diseases remain in their own homes. Certain technologies and portable equipment has allowed many seniors to get some of the same medical treatments at home that are typically only received in hospitals.
Home health care agencies place a team of doctors, nurses, and caregivers in the care of a given patient and make house calls in order to oversee that client's care, within the environment of their own home. This form of care is particularly helpful for those suffering from diseases such as dementia, as the patient is less likely to become confused if they are within their familiar environment. Despite struggling with a debilitating illness, an individual is more likely to lead a satisfactory life if they are able to remain in their own home.
If your loved one has a serious medical condition, need, or illness, a trained medical caregiver, through our caregiver services is the best option. A non-medical need for a caregiver, where a senior simply needs assistance around the house, transportation to doctor's appointments, and simple companionship, would call for a non-medical care companion. A-1 Domestic Professional Services provides a wide range of care giving services and will work with you to find a caregiver that best suits your needs or the needs of your loved one.
If your senior loved one requires care that requires a doctor's prescription, then you should contact a home health agency. Keep in mind, however, that home health aides generally are only authorized to perform the tasks described in the prescription. If your senior needs assistance getting to and from doctor's appointments, cleaning the house, or simply having someone to spend time with, you should contact a non-medical home care agency like your local Home Instead Senior Care® office. Many caregivers and older adults find that using a team approach of having both non-medical and home health care services concurrently actually provides the best solution.
