If you were to ask your senior loved one if they would rather live in assisted living or their own home – chances are the answer would always be to stay in their own home amongst familiar surroundings and years of memories.
As our loved ones age, their care may change, and it may be more challenging for them to continue necessary personal care or home care as when they were younger. For seniors recovering from an injury or experiencing symptoms of Dementia, having additional care could make staying in their home possible for a more extended period.
Suppose a family member is a primary caregiver. In that case, it may become challenging to be there daily or if additional care is required, especially if they live farther away or work full time. Having support and assistance from a home care agency can relieve the stress for caregivers and seniors.
Personal Care and Home Support are excellent alternatives for having assistance during the day with your loved one’s basic needs and comforts. The team at Promyse Home Care will assist you or your loved one with routine daily and weekly tasks that will enable them to stay where they call home.
With Live-in home care, a caregiver stays in a senior’s home for one or more 24-hour periods a week to ease the burden of worry and anxiety off your shoulders, knowing that our live-in caregiver is always there to respond to emergencies and provide good companionship. You might choose traditional 24-hour care (around-the-clock care), where the caregiver is awake at all times. This 24-hour care means other caregivers rotate 8-hour shifts so that someone is always awake and alert to help your loved one.
