What Services Can a Home Health Aide Provide?
When a senior becomes our client, they can be sure that all of their in home care needs are met because they will have someone with them every step of the way. While not a complete list, some of the services we provide include:
Dietary Assistance: With dietary assistance, your loved one’s caregiver will help them with all their nutritional needs. This includes preparing delicious meals and snacks throughout the day, as well as creating a healthy meal plan that follows nutritionist’s guidelines, assisting with shopping for groceries, and even assistance with feeding.
Hygiene Assistance: Cleansing the body also cleanses the soul, and this can be especially true for seniors. With a home health aide there to assist them, your loved one will be able to do all of the tasks necessary to stay clean. Additionally, our caregivers are trained to minimize discomfort or embarrassment of the client in their care when helping them with toileting or other personal hygiene matters.
Mobility and Positioning: Getting up and down throughout the day is something most people take for granted, but for many seniors it can be a dangerous activity that exhausts the body and increases chances of injury. But, with a caregiver there to help, your loved one will be able to get into and out of beds and chairs without the risk of being hurt in a fall or slip.
Incidental Transportation: When many people reach their golden years, they no longer have the ability to drive safely anymore. Fortunately, all of our caregivers are licensed drivers and can get your loved one where they need to go. So if your family member has an appointment they need to go to, or they would like to go to the Otsego County Senior Center to attend a class, we can get them there and home again safely.
