What is Home Care Assistance?

by admin

A 2011 study conducted by AARP showed that 90% of individuals over age 65 prefer to age in their own homes for as long as possible. Did you know senior home care services can help honor that preference? 

Home care offers a more personalized alternative to nursing homes and assisted living communities. It provides a variety of services such as personal care, homemaking, companionship, and more to individuals living at home, so they can remain comfortable and independent for as long as possible. It is a service especially beneficial to those who are growing older, are chronically ill, recovering from surgery, or living with a disability. Do you know someone who needs support with some daily tasks, but does not necessarily need to be in a nursing home or hospital? Home care could be a great option for them. 

Home care is different for each client and family. No two clients are the same, and Regina’s Healing Hands works to tailor care to fit each individual’s needs. Care services can be available anywhere from a few hours a week, to 24-hour care- it all depends upon the level of care that is needed. Regina’s Healing Hands Services include: 

Personal Care: 

  • Bathing, Grooming, Dressing
  • Toileting and Incontinence
  • Medication Reminders
  • Mobility Assistance
  • Repositioning to Avoid Bedsores
  • Transportation to and from Medical Appointments

Senior care can enhance the quality of life for Bay Area seniors. In addition to supporting their physical safety and reducing hospitalizations, the right caregiver can boost emotional wellbeing, which can increase motivation to be active, thus, fostering healthier cognition and physical stability. It can also provide peace of mind for family members concerned about the safety of their loved ones.
