El Dorado At Santa Fe Home Health Care Services
We are not an assisted living facility - we're better! We offer in home senior care including overnight care, assistance in bathing, going to the restroom, general hygiene, and daily life activities. All of our care plans are personalized and tailored to meet the needs of the individual and family members.
Often, the most common need asked for is dementia care at home is from a trained and experienced caregiver who can take part, interact and contribute to keeping routine going while your senior is at home.
Taking daily walks with loved ones, cooking and eating meals, getting dressed, bathing and dressing up and more are all activities that our caregivers do. We believe that keeping a caregiver aware of what tasks need to be done and when is also essential - every client has their custom care plan created and a caregiver matched to ensure that plan is followed. We know. that even the most responsible family caregiver needs a break too which is why respite care if part of our available services.
Dementia and Alzheimer's affect everyone eventually. Accepting this and helping seniors transition to assisted living at home begins with a frank, open conservation with the senior and the appropriate family members in a comfortable in home setting.
The next step is for the family to start planning how they will provide the caregiver with daily living activities. We offer a free in home assessment (or a virtual one!) to help you get started. This is a no obligation assessment of your seniors needs and we help you document what is needed to help your senior stay at home comfortably and safely. This list may include but is not limited to shopping, errands, meals, bathing and dressing up, taking medication on a daily basis and more.
Even if a person doesn't need constant medical care, there are still things that they need to be doing to stay healthy. Daily physical activities are critical for maintaining brain function. It is also important to pay attention to the emotional and mental needs of your loved one. Having a caregiver who is attentive to these things, can provide the types of care that will make your loved one comfortable in his or her home and make sure that their daily living is not compromised because of their condition.
