There are better options compared to the nursing homes and assisted living facilities. In-home care services are providing quality service to seniors who can now remain in their familiar surroundings. What that means is that the seniors can be afforded more freedom.
There are some different types of in-home services to choose from dependent on an individual’s needs.
Personal Care Services
Personal care tasks continually become a big challenge as people get older necessitating help for our loved ones. Personal care services are a great option especially for children who give the primary care to their elderly parents.
Retire-At-Home Ottawa will send a qualified caregiver to bathe your loved one(s) and to assist them with getting dressed. Other tasks that the worker will provide include fixing hair, applying makeup, fixing them a meal, clipping their nails, and reminding and ensuring that they take their medications. The listed tasks can be packaged and scheduled at an appropriate time for the entire family.
Household Chore Services
Your loved ones may be facing challenges keeping up with their household chores. A second challenge would be you may not have the time to help out due to work and family commitments.
Retire-At-Home Ottawa can provide the services you desperately need. The household chore services are also suited for seniors who return home after surgery or hospitalization.
The worker sent will help out with chores such as doing the laundry, washing dishes, or cleaning around the entire home. We offer the opportunity for you to sit down with the worker to map out an agreement on the chores that needs to be completed and at what frequency. For example, the bathroom may need to be cleaned twice every week or change of bedroom linen every week.
Community Assistance Services
Some of the assistance that your elderly parents may not be necessarily in the house, perhaps they require companionship or an escort around the home. You may not be available to offer any assistance due to the nature of the 9 am to 5 pm jobs.
Retire-At-Home Ottawa provides workers who will take your elderly patients to the grocery store, to the doctor’s appointment, and to the pharmacy to get a refill of their medications. Other assistance can be taking them to a church service or to enjoy some social time at the local senior center.
You can take advantage of the time that our agents are caring for your elderly parents to get some respite and much-needed break from the constant care and attention given to their parents.
