As we age, many of us strongly desire to remain in our homes. Home care for seniors allows seniors to maintain independence and remain living at home.
Aging in place refers to living comfortably in your own home as long as possible, instead of entering a retirement or long-term care facility. If you only require modest assistance with your daily activities, have a tight network of family and friends nearby, and can use the appropriate home care services to meet your needs, aging in place can be an option worth considering.
There are many home care services for seniors that allow them to maintain independence and routine in their daily lives. These are some senior home care services offered by Kind Senior Care:
Personal Care Services and Hygiene Tasks
To ensure the senior in your life is living comfortably, our team of professionals at Kind Senior Care is happy to help with personal care services and lessen some of the risks of a senior completing these tasks independently. Some of our clients merely want on-call support, but others need more “hands-on” help to complete crucial tasks. In either case, your loved one will be empowered and treated with respect by our team members, who have received extensive training to carry out these tasks.
Being older or recovering from a hospital stay can make it a little more difficult to handle routine household chores. It might be difficult to add tasks like cleaning and bringing out the garbage to your list, even though doing the laundry and washing dishes may seem simple. Anything requiring mobility can create a fall risk for seniors. To ensure their safety, Kind Senior Care conducts light housekeeping services for seniors.
Specific light housekeeping duties offered by our team include:
- Washing and putting away dishes
- Dusting around the house
- Organizing and tidying up the house
- Vacuuming, sweeping and mopping
- Assisting with pets
- Caring for your houseplants
Our dependable transportation services at Kind Senior Care involve much more than just getting customers from point A to point B. We may assist you in getting ready for your appointment, walk with you from your home to the car, drive you to your destination, and even wait and take notes at your appointment because our kind caregivers are trained to provide through-the-door service.
The best part is that those driving services are included as a standard part of your regular care plan after you put your trust in us! You might ask your Kind caregiver to do some errands for you whenever they are on duty. In fact, many of our clients and their families plan crucial events like medical visits and other outings during the times that our staff members are coming to the house.
Our transportation services help support activities like:
- Visiting friends and family
- Medical, vision and dental appointments
- Faith-based services and programs
- Running errands
- Social events
Meal Planning and Preparation Services
Several senior citizens give up making nutritious meals because the cleanup is too difficult or daunting. Some elderly people simply don’t enjoy eating alone after years of sharing meals with family members in the same home. Many people also struggle to chew and swallow food, which prevents them from eating as they should.
No matter the reason, our team at Kind Senior Care can help ensure the senior in your life is well-fed with nutritious ingredients prepared in a way that works best for their eating limitations. For the physical and mental health of seniors, a well-balanced diet is crucial. The body receives the energy it needs from a nutritious diet to get through the day or mend after a hospital visit.
Not only can Kind’s highly qualified staff assist with cooking, but they can also handle your weekly grocery shopping and meal planning! In order to ensure that any food produced in your house is secure and fresh, your caregiver will also keep an eye on expiration dates. Our meal planning and preparation services include:
- Grocery shopping, food storage, and organization
- Tracking eating habits in a dietary log
- Keeping the entire kitchen clean and well-organized
- Preparing nutritious meals and healthy snacks
- Feeding assistance
- Checking food expiration dates
