As we get older, it’s normal to become a homebody and find comfort in remaining at home. However, remaining at home doesn’t solve the problem for those who feel lonely or need help with daily tasks.
Private duty home care offers the opportunity for your loved one to receive the necessary care they’re looking for from compassionate people. At Kind Senior Care, we have reliable, experienced professionals who can come to your home to keep you company, help with personal care and more. Our private-duty caregivers offer a range of services in order to meet your senior’s needs and maintain their happiness. But how do you know if it’s the right decision? We’ve done the research for you:
When Should I Consider Private Duty Home Care?
Trying to decide when to get private duty care can be a tough decision. However, there are a list of criteria in which people begin to consider private duty home care.
- When starting a new prescription of medication, a private duty caregiver can provide reminders to take your medication
- Anytime you or a loved one receives a new diagnosis
- After a fall
- If you’ve been discharged from the hospital or skilled nursing facility recently, or are planning ahead for a discharge, and know that you will need recovery aid, a caregiver can supply support
Whether you are experiencing a loss close to you or were recently diagnosed, a private duty caregiver can be there for you in your time of need.
What Does Private Duty Home Care Consist Of?
Knowing what private duty home care consists of helps when making a decision on using a caregiver. Private duty home care has several perks that go past watching over you or your senior. They will take care of light housekeeping, meal planning, and more.
- Personal care: bathing/dressing, and hygiene
- House duties
- Medication reminders
- Meal planning and preparation
If any of these tasks are troublesome to you or a senior you care for, home care would be a great option.
