Deciding on care options for an aging loved one can be one of the most important and confusing decisions to make. There are a lot of options out there and you want to make sure you make the right choice. Senior home care (sometimes called elder care) is becoming a growing alternative to nursing homes and senior living facilities. But what is senior home care? What makes it such a popular choice with families and seniors? And what can you expect when you make the decision to use home care?
What is home care? And What can it offer Seniors?
Personal senior care is a popular choice for many families.
Home care allows people the care that they need while letting them keep the most important thing - their independence! Home care combines the best of both world. It gives seniors personal care in the comfort and familiarity of their own home.
With personalized health care, our goal is to assist Independent seniors to continue living the life that they are accustomed to. A brief list of what home care offers includes:
- light housekeeping
- cooking meals
- monitor any medications that need to be taken
- offer companionship
- helping seniors get to all their appointments
- plant and child care
- and much, much more
How can I figure out what level of care is required for my parent/loved one?
We make this as easy as possible by offering a free assessment when you call. We’ll arrange a time, at your earliest convenience to come in and meet with the family and/or client. The assessment will only take about 45 minutes to an hour. After we’ve covered everything we can discuss and help you choose options that’s right for your situation.
Our levels of support vary based on the client’s needs. We can be scheduled for as little as three hours a week and our services extend all the way to 24 hour in home care.
How long do we have to wait for personal home care to begin?
Because we know how important it is to keep Seniors on their path of independence, our goal is to make sure that our clients get the best care as quickly as possible.
Once you’ve made the decision that personalized senior care is right for your family, we will start the process to start care immediately.
As soon as all the paperwork has been processed, we will start home care within 24 hours. In order to make sure that your needs are met, we assign a manager to personally monitor your account. As soon as service begins in your loved ones home, your manager will call you to make sure everything is running smoothly. Making the right decision for your loved ones future can seem confusing. But, if you decide to go with home care we can make that future manageable and enjoyable. Make the phone call and schedule your free assessment today for peace of mind tomorrow.
We offer home care throughout HRM (Halifax, Dartmouth, Bedford, or Sackville and beyond) and we now have a location in Liverpool which serves Queens County.
