For many people, home is the most comfortable place in the world. That's why it is so important for seniors to be able to continue living at home for as long as possible. Seniors and some individuals with disabilities struggle to stay at home because they begin having trouble caring for themselves.
When important health and well-being tasks become a challenge for an individual, they must rely on help from family members and friends to keep them going. This can be a struggle for some people and isn't possible for others.
Often family members aren't available enough to meet all their needs, and that's when they often have to move into an assisted living center or a nursing home.
Assisted home care is a helpful service for many people in Washington. Assisted home care takes the caregiving burden off the family members and provides individualized care to the individual in the comfort of their home. Not every home care service is created equally, though, and working with a reputable agency like Comfort Keepers is important.
Use an Agency with Reputable Caregivers
Carefully choose an assisted home care agency that only hires caregivers that are compassionate, honest, and reliable. The best agencies have a rigid background check and training process, and that results in better caregivers. That’s what our clients expect here at Comfort Keepers. We seek out those who have a passion to help those in need, and take the time to train them on the proper way to administer care to our clients. That way, no matter who hires us to help take care of their family member or loved one, they will get consistent, comforting care from a caregiver who is already background checked and trained.
Agency Home Care Offers More than Private Practices
When hiring assisted home care services, there are private and agency options. Private caregivers can cost less, but many don't have reliable insurance. A single caregiver also can't offer the stability that an agency can.
When working with a private caregiver, the well-being of your loved one will suffer when the private caregiver isn't available to offer services for some reason, like illness, vacations, or other reasons. This happens more than you might expect. Working with an agency gives you access to multiple caregivers, so someone is always available during the scheduled service time for more consistent care.
How to Decide How Many Hours of Assisted Home Care You Need
For relatives with minor needs, they may not have full-time care requirements. Some of the things that caregivers can help with include bathing, meal preparation, errands, and companionship.
For seniors and disabled individuals with moderate needs, full-time care may be required. Caregivers could provide care everyday. During this time, the caregiver has time to help with a variety of tasks and to socialize with your loved one while there.
In more severe cases, services can be arranged for all-day help or even around-the-clock services with multiple caregivers. This is ideal for those with memory issues who have a tendency to wander, such as those with Alzheimer’s and dementia, or even just being there for seniors who require more assistance or are at higher risk of falling.
