Senior care is recommended to those individuals who prefer to stay in their homes, but need a constant care which their family members cannot easily provide. In today’s busy life it is not possible for family members to be around elderly for the whole day. There are many home cares providing home care solutions. With senior care, seniors can live on their own as long as possible, receiving as much help as possible from the outside. The services given to seniors depend mostly on every individual’s condition. Elder care may either involve giving limited health care services to seniors with minimal health concerns or more complete health care services to a recuperating, disabled or ill senior.
Home care assistance may be acquired either through an in home care agency or by hiring a care giver directly. Direct hires are more common for companionship services and for home health care for seniors.
Senior care companionship services are mainly provided to elderly adults who are physically healthy, but need some help in their daily activities like bathing, dressing, medication reminders, etc. The main purpose of companionship services is to allow them to live independently in their own homes for as long as possible.
Companionship services provide seniors great opportunities for enjoyable conversations and activities that can enhance the senior’s lives. Companionship services may include strolling around the neighborhood, discussing current news or personal interests, talking about the past while viewing old pictures, and working on puzzles, playing scrabbles, going to church and attending senior center activities.
