Research shows that around 85%-90% of seniors desire to live out their retirement years in their own home, whether it is the house where they raised their kids, or they were downsized to an apartment in the city or a cottage somewhere in the tropics. The rapid growth in the number of seniors seeking elderly in-home care has caused many companies and individuals to respond by providing different types of services and ways to cater to this need.
They can make it possible for seniors and people with physical challenges to remain in their own home while receiving the personal care they need, as well as provide companionship and someone to help them with daily tasks. Personal responsibility can include dressing and bathing, as well as grooming and helping one "move around the house," as well as provide incontinence management. Daily tasks can consist of light housekeeping, doing the laundry, shopping, preparing meals, and escorting the senior to doctor appointments. The added benefit of nurse aide care and senior care is that the nurse aide can also provide companionship, a much-needed friend, and someone who can listen and understand the needs of the elder or person with physical challenges.
A home health service offers the traditional nursing functions that are found in a hospital or nursing home environment: basic medical functions such as giving medications, helping with the bandage and dressing changes, checking vital signs; moving patients, giving baths, physical therapy, etc. Many now offer services beyond that: extended socializing with the patient (reading books and magazines, playing cards, talking), running errands, preparing meals, helping with exercise, shopping - the list goes on. Performing these extended functions helps those patients who don't have families, or whose families can't be with their loved.
Home health service today offers so much to patients who are recuperating from surgery or illness. These services offered allow patients to recover comfortably in their own home, without stressing families who can't provide many of those services, and they provide peace of mind and independence for recovering individuals. Investigating home health service options is something all patients should do if they are ill, or are experiencing health problems. Many patients and their families are pleasantly surprised by the different services many of these care services offer.
