In Home Care Services Enrichment Activities Go Beyond Keeping Individuals Safe and Independent
Interim HealthCare’s HomeLife Enrichment® Program is designed to help seniors lead safe, independent and enriched lives. Customized for the individual, this program focuses on the mind, body, spirit and family and provides a variety of services that go beyond the usual services that many home care companies provide.
In Home Care Services: Medication Reminders Can Help Avoid Unnecessary Hospitalization
A growing number of adults – approximately four out of five – are currently taking at least one medication while nearly one-third of adults take more than four prescription medications at the same time. Remembering to take medications on time is a big challenge, especially for the elderly. Interim Care Professionals can assist with reading labels and reminding seniors to take their appropriate medications.
In Home Care Services: Helping With Laundry Conserves Energy for Many Older Adults
By having Interim Care Professionals help with washing, drying and putting away the laundry, seniors can often conserve their energy for more important tasks. Sometimes these services are done in the home and other times assistance can be provided to clients at a Laundromat.
Light Housekeeping Helps Keep Things Neat and Can Help Avoid Unnecessary Falls
Keeping up with housekeeping can be a challenge for many seniors. While Interim HealthCare is not a maid service, Care Professionals can provide light housekeeping services including dusting, sweeping, vacuuming, mopping floors, cleaning bathrooms and kitchens. Care Professionals also help with organizing drawers and closets and making sure things are picked up to avoid any slips or falls.
Meal Preparation is An Important Part of Everyday Living
Nutrition is very important and helping prepare nutritious meals is often the little extra help a senior needs. Many seniors do not have the opportunity to eat a well-balanced meal, and some even participate in cooking activities so they become involved in as much or as little as their ability and desire allow. Often just having someone to eat a meal with makes a significant difference.
Transportation Helps Get You Where You Want to Go
Many seniors have a problem getting to the store, picking up prescriptions, running errands, going to the beauty salon and getting to their doctor’s appointments.Although we’re not a taxi, ambulance or limousine service, many Interim HealthCare offices provide transportation in conjunction with other personal care and support services. Interim HealthCare helps provide the extra support which can make a big difference in the health and well-being of seniors. By providing transportation to the doctor’s office, seniors are better able to avoid unnecessary readmission to a hospital or other facility. A trip to the beauty salon is often just what a senior needs to lift their spirits.
Live-In Home Care Services Customized to Meet Individual Needs
Customizing care to each client’s needs is part of the service plan developed by Interim HealthCare. It can be a few hours a week to full time care. Sometimes clients want live-in home care which means that an Interim HealthCare Care Professional will live in a client’s home to provide in-home care each day. The services may vary depending upon the needs of the client. By providing live-in services, the client and family members gain peace of mind in knowing there is someone in the home with the client.
24-Hour Home Care Services
There are times when clients need around the clock 24 hour services. Depending on the need, Interim HealthCare can coordinate caregiving with shifts of employees who can provide specific services. In many instances, this type of continuous in-home care service is provided for clients who are at risk when unattended, such as persons with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia-related conditions.
Respite Care and Relief Provides a Much Needed Break for Family Caregivers
Respite care provides breaks from the daily routine of caregiving. It can relieve stress, restore energy and promote the necessary balance in the life of a family caregiver. Whether it’s for a few hours or a well-deserved vacation, Interim HealthCare can provide the necessary support and relief.
