Caregivers, also know an personal care aides, personal attendant, or companions, specializes in delivering in-home care services to assist elderly, chronically ill, mentally disabled, physically challenged clients, hospice patients and those in various stages of rehabilitation or recovery with their daily tasks and. activities.
The Caregiver engages in one on one non-medical personal care to patients in their home setting using a patient specific care plan to facilitate the patient’s self-care and independence with activities of daily living such as:
Long-Term/24 Hour Care
Long-term/24-hour care is care given over an extended period of time or within a day. It involves a variety of services designed to meet a person’s health or personal care needs. These services can include Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) tasks, such as bathing, dressing, moving from one location to another. Or on the other hand, Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs) tasks, such as housework and preparing and cleaning up after meals. Long-Term/24-hour care is aimed at helping people live as independently and safely as possible when they can no longer perform everyday activities on their own.
Ambulatory Care is medical services performed on an outpatient basis, without admission to a hospital or other medical facility. Being able to go home the same day does not mean you will not need additional assistance, and so it is important to have someone on hand who is able to help with getting tasks done, such as moving around the house, getting in and out of bed, chairs, or wheelchairs.
Hospice care is care that focuses on the quality of life for individuals who are experiencing an advanced, life-limiting illness. Hospice care provides compassionate care for people in the last phases of incurable illness so that they may live as fully and comfortably as possible. It also provides peace of mind for families, knowing that their loved one is getting optimal care.
Specialized assistance (care) to help persons with Dementia/Alzheimer’s maintain their independence at home. Maintaining client’s daily activities, providing social interaction, ensuring good nutrition, and offering intellectual stimulation. As the disease progresses, a person with dementia will become more dependent. Remain patient and be flexible and cater your care to the person’s individual needs.
Social Care Program
Social Care Program seeks to teach seniors how to utilize social media and technology to stay connected to friends and family. Learning to be familiar with the digital platforms and devices that are currently being used is not easy. However, the benefits far outweigh the challenges of learning, and helps the elderly to keep in touch with their families and remain an integral part of their lives.
Respite care is a short-term break for primary caregivers. Respite Care is generally when something unscheduled comes up, or an emergency. However, it may also be scheduled, for example, when it is time for a caregiver’s vacation, or to attend to themselves. It helps to prevent primary caregivers from becoming too exhausted, isolated, or even burned out. Respite care can take place in a client’s home, at day-care centers, or at residential or nursing facilities that offer overnight stays.
Part Time Care
This form of care provides ongoing care regularly, typically for a few hours each week. This allows family caregivers scheduled time off to make appointments, run errands, exercise, or enjoy some downtime. Similar to Respite Care, Part time care is usually given as an opportunity for at-home carers to take some time out for themselves.
Support Care is care administered that is aimed at improving the quality of life of patients who have a serious or life-threatening disease. It also includes assisting the family’s primary caregiver, in a bid to lighten their load and offer help when and where needed.
