Senior home care consists of many services that can be provided in the privacy of your family’s home. Typically, home care providers screen potential seniors prior to admittance. This screening might include ADLs abilities, medication use, and weight/nutritional status. This care type can provide various medical services including opening container lids, assisting residents in drinking fluid to swallow medication, and retrieving medication from secured storage. In-home care provides multiple services including assistance scheduling medical appointments, short-term nursing care, and local transportation. Also, services provided can include rehabilitative services and help with household chores. Non-medical home care may also afford your family member help with assistance managing tasks and with meal preparation. Finally, assistive home care can support your family member with wellness services such as monitoring vitals and transfers from wheelchair to bed.
