Personal Home Care Services for Seniors

For most patients, especially those approaching their golden years, getting back on their feet after suffering from Parkinson, Alzheimer or other progressive brain diseases can be difficult. Seniors might experience a decline in brain functions and thus find it tough to care for themselves properly. This is where a personal caregiver comes in to help them recover and feel valued.

According to research, person-centered care in homes caused an improvement in healthcare satisfaction by valetudinarians. For geriatrics, maintaining their overall welfare is everything. And spending the rest of their lives in a retirement home terrifies most.
Personal care services enable them to be in the midst of people they love, sights they enjoy, and memories they created during their lifetime. 

What Personal Care Services Entails

Personal care, also known as private care, involves making seniors feel happy and excited about approaching the later times of their life. Most people get scared to grow old because of the inadequate care they see others receive. But with an in-home personal care provider, your elders get to enjoy:

  • Medication Management: A common problem most elders have post-operation is forgetting to take their drugs. A caregiver can help solve this problem by reminding them and organizing their pills in order of which should be taken at certain times and frequency.
  • Mobility Assistance: Due to old age or accidents, most seniors are unable to move around. This can affect their health if they stay dormant for long periods. A caregiver can assist by taking walks with your loved one, running errands, and encouraging them to take little steps to strengthen their muscles.
  • Meal Preparation and Nutrition: Cooking can become strenuous for most seniors. For some, the idea of having to buy groceries dries up their appetite for food. A caregiver can assist by getting the ingredients needed, cooking them meals according to their dietary preferences, and cleaning up to make them feel better and nourished.
  • Companionship and Emotional Support: For most geriatrics, there’s often no one around to keep them company. Either their friends must have passed on or they don’t find anything interesting. A caregiver can provide much-needed support and fill that emotional void. Activities like word puzzles and chess help to bond seniors with private-duty caregivers.
  • Toileting and Incontinence Care: For elders suffering from stroke or dementia, a huge level of attention must be paid to their hygiene. A caregiver would help by providing wipes, providing comfort, and preserving the dignity of your elder.
  • Customized Care Plans: Not every geriatric has the same diet requirements. For some, they need to eat more fruits and reduce their calorie intake. For others, they need to exercise more. It’s up to the caregiver to provide a specific care plan based on instructions from your family and healthcare providers that would suit your elder.

Importance of Private Duty Home Care For Seniors

Private home care is crucial for making geriatrics feel comfortable and preserving their dignity. Caregivers aim to provide a positive experience by:

  • Identifying holistic approaches best suited for seniors
  • Creating a safe living environment for seniors
  • Tackling their physical and emotional needs
  • Enhancing the Seniors’ Quality of Life
  • Fostering one-on-one personal interaction
  • Preventing social isolation

How To Know If Personal Care Is Right For Your Elderly Loved One

Most people think personal care is only for seniors. While there’s a degree of truth to that, it doesn’t mean people faced with the following can’t benefit from having a private duty caregiver cater to their well-being:

  • Depression
  • Safety concerns
  • Terminal illnesses
  • Social interactions
  • Changes in appearance
  • Family support availability

Difference Between Companionship and Personal Care for the Elderly

Companionship care and private duty home care are intertwined, albeit two distinct types of services, each serving different purposes for seniors.

Companionship services primarily focus on making the senior feel alive. A companion eliminates boredom and isolation from your seniors by engaging them in conversations, sharing stories and mentally stimulating their brains with games like word puzzles and chess. A companion doesn’t offer medical help.

While private home care services involve a caregiver performing everything a companion would and more. They are often trained in specific skill sets and can provide medical help. They are the best option for your elders if you’re looking for someone to provide comprehensive care.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you select caregivers to join the Ezra Home Care team?

Our caregivers undergo a rigorous screening process including a criminal background investigation, certification or licensing verification (in applicable positions), and a thorough reference check. The caregivers that we select are all people that we would want to take care of our own loved ones.

How do I know that I or my loved one will be assigned a caregiver that is a good fit?

First we will conduct a free Safety and Needs Assessment of your loved one or of your current situation. The Safety and Needs Assessment will allow us to customize a care schedule and determine the type of caregiver your loved one or you may need. Then we will give you and your family the chance to meet with several caregivers that match your needs and schedule.

What if the caregiver I am assigned is not a good match for me?

If you find, for any reason, that you would prefer to try another caregiver we will find a replacement for you.

What if I only need help for an hour or two?

No problem. At Ezra Home Care, we have no minimum hour requirements.

If I already live in an assisted living community, can I still use your services?

Absolutely. Many of our clients need more care than an assisted living community can provide but do not want to live in a nursing home. As long as your community approves, we can supplement your care services so that you can remain as independent as possible.

What if I’ve already moved into a nursing home, but still want services that Ezra Home Care offers?

We are happy to assist you no matter where you live. If you find that you’d like a companion to talk to, an escort to an appointment or any type of assistance beyond your nursing home’s services, we are there for you.

Ezra Home Care is a “private pay” service. What does that mean?

Private pay means that services are paid for using personal income or assets—without aid from insurance or government benefits. We would be happy to discuss pricing details with you directly.

Are there any other ways to pay for private home care services?

Yes, there are other available options:
  • Long term care insurance
  • Reverse mortgages
  • Veterans Administrations
  • Workman’s Compensation
  • State and local programs, community organizations
  • Viatical Settlement

Why choose Ezra Home Care over a franchise?

Ezra Home Care is large enough to handle all of your home care needs, yet small enough to give you the personalized service and care you deserve. Since Ezra Home Care is privately owned, we have a greater flexibility of accommodating our clients' needs. We are not bound by territory, and are capable of providing continued care even when our clients are being relocated to another areas. Our decision-making process is more efficient than that of a franchise because all of our decisions are made right in the office, without the need for a comparatively lengthy corporate approval process. Schedule a free Needs and Safety Assessment and you’ll see exactly what we mean.

Everyone I was in contact with was kind and sympathetic and called after to offer condolences. I was impressed with everyone I spoke to and met. I would highly recommend them.”
