When you or your loved one hears the words ‘in home senior care’, you both may think of a senior whose health is declining that cannot do things for themselves anymore. This idea is an inaccurate description of what these services actually are. Loved ones seeking care in the home may do so to simply get a hand keeping up with daily tasks, because they need monitoring for medical purposes, or have a short or long term medical condition. There is also the companionship and peace of mind a professional can provide. Below, we will explore some of the most common in home senior care services offered in Boise.
Household chores will often take a backseat when your loved one starts to lose his or her ability to perform chores or tasks within the home. In fact, if you start to notice clutter, this is one of the first indications that your loved one may not be able to keep up with his or her household duties. Caregivers can help your loved one by grocery shopping for them, cleaning up the home, and laundry.
Transportation services are offered by senior care providers because as seniors start to age, they may lose their ability to drive. You will often notice an increase in the number of traffic tickets or accidents that your loved one has. Caregivers can provide your loved one with transport to and from doctors’ appointments, the store, and anywhere else they need to go.
Many seniors who suffer with mobility issues or conditions such as arthritis will find it hard to complete daily duties and they may need some help. Some of the care services that can be provided include dental hygiene, getting dressed, bathing, toileting, and more.
