Does your loved one feel vulnerable living at home alone? Having a caregiver in the home, particularly at night when a senior may be vulnerable, offers reassurance which can help seniors sleep through the night and improve overall quality of life and peace of mind.
Below are services that are offered to seniors in Morning Star area of Charlotte, NC
1. Physical assistance
By providing physical assistance, a home care aide may help senior clients get out of bed, take a shower, get dressed, get up and down stairs, and much more. Some of these tasks might appear easy and straightforward enough; however, with less strength and balance as seniors age, they may be very difficult.
A senior who lives alone may be less likely to take walks around the neighborhood. But an in home care provider may make walking an everyday routine for a senior and help him or her improve overall health and quality of life.
2. Emotional support
A professional home care aide knows how essential it is for seniors to remain as socially engaged as they are capable. When a professional care aide spends time with a senior client, they will usually ask questions, collect information, and determine what kind of activities may be of interest to the senior in order to help them enjoy social time and mental stimulation.
3. Checking their surroundings
These professional in home care aides will understand the benefits of a shower seat or stair lift, safe steps, handrails, grab bars in the shower and will be able to provide assistance in using these safety precautions. They may also note when light bulbs or smoke detector batteries may need to be checked to avoid putting the senior at unnecessary risk.
4. Assessing safety itself
Tied into assessing their surroundings, these care providers will regularly assess safety in the home, even including whether or not the windows are secured, doors are locked properly, and that the senior is safe at home, whether or not someone else is there with them.
5. Eating right
When people eat right, they have more energy and their body receives the right amounts of minerals, vitamins and other nutrients they need to remain healthy. This may fight fatigue and provide additional stamina and strength for the senior, which may result in improved safety at home.
Nothing refreshes the human body like a good night’s sleep. Having insufficient sleep may result in restlessness, irritability, and a feeling of being fatigued all day long. Most families have discovered that after setting up in home care, seniors are able to sleep better.
