Our Private Home Care Services
Providing care to your loved ones is likely at the top of your priority list. That being said, providing adequate care and being there for them with the daily time constraints and stressors of life can make it very difficult to provide them with the care they need. Below, we will be going over some of the benefits of private home care.
Benefits of Private Home Care:
1. Around the Clock.
At Care for Me Homecare, we believe that one of the many major benefits of Private Homecare is the peace of mind of having assistance and companionship provided to your loved one around the clock.
This will allow you to have a thorough and complete picture of the day-to-day activities of your loved one, as well as be comforted with the knowledge that they are safe and secure.
Knowing that you will have professionals working around the clock to be there for your loved ones is something that will provide you with ample peace of mind.
2. Support with their Diet.
A healthy diet becomes more and more important as we age. The need for nutrient dense foods and adequate hydration is paramount to the well-being of our clients and all elderly people. Home care assistants, with the assistance of the client themselves, the family and our Care Managers, will ensure the client has a varied diet. This is an element of the care that is documented daily.
One of the biggest problems that a lot of people are faced with when it comes to their loved ones is not being there around the clock. Because of this, you are unable to really tell what your loved ones are eating throughout the day and sometimes whether or not they are even eating at all. Not being able to tell if they are eating can be a big problem because it can lead to major health complications.
By having access to private home care professionals, they will be able to effectively monitor your loved one’s diet and see what they are eating and whether or not they are eating enough. Elderly people have specific dietary requirements that must be met, and a variety of things can really cause complications with their diet whether its sickness, a minor injury or anything else. Having someone there to look after and monitor their diet is really a great way to limit this issue altogether.
3. Medication Management.
Another big area that having access to private care can help is through medication management. If your loved one is someone that is taking some sort of medication or even multiple medications, it might be difficult to manage. Being able to effectively manage their medications is key to ensuring that they remain as healthy as possible.
Having someone looking after their medication intake can provide you with the peace of mind you need to know that they are operating as per the doctor’s orders. We ensure that all home care assistants monitor and document all medication, with the help of blister packs and by prompting the client to take their medication, in accordance with the prescription.
Homecare Assistants will also ensure that prescriptions are collected on time. When necessary, Homecare assistants can attend Doctor or Hospital appointments with the client.
4. Help with some Chores.
Our Home Care Assistants can also complete daily chores on behalf of the client, such as: Vacuuming, Changing Bed Linens, Mopping the floors, Cleaning and putting away the dishes, laundry and other day-to-day light household duties, to ensure the running of the home for the client.
Care for Me Homecare encourages clients to maintain as much independence as possible, encouraging them to make decisions and engage with maintaining their surroundings, when possible, while still providing a clean and safe environment for the Client. Hiring private home care is also going to minimise the amount of work that is needed to do in and around the home.
Whether your loved ones normally take care of this work or you drop in to do it for them, these professionals will be able to help with various light household chores that can really maximise the amount of time that your loved ones have and that you have to spend doing other things.
5. Personal Care
Personal care differs for every client. Personal care can range from the security of knowing a carer is outside the bathroom while a client showers all the way up to bed baths. Carers offer assistance with catheter care, stoma care as well as personal grooming such as electric razor shaving and blow drying and styling of hair all depending on the client’s individual needs.
We provide assistance with all elements of Personal Care, whether it is assisting with showering, introduction and assistance with Pad Changing or simply assistance with dressing and undressing. We understand the delicate nature of the transition to needing assistance with these intimate and private tasks.
At Care for Me Homecare, our trained homecare assistants will offer the appropriate and required assistance to our clients, maintaining the dignity and respect of the client, while also promoting their independence in completing the tasks they can manage on their own, with regards to their personal care. This is vital to the overall health and self-esteem of all individuals.
6. Dementia Care
Our person-centred approach to Dementia means that our care plans are specific to each individual and focus on the individual themselves and not the illness. While we pride ourselves on our high quality and industry-leading specialized dementia care, we ensure that our trained Homecare Assistants continually encourage our clients to engage in independent decision making, when possible.
Effective communication is a key component in delivering efficient and robust care, with respect and dignity being essential to ensuring our person-centred approach to care is maintained.
Overall, there are a lot of different benefits that you can get from making an investment in private care for your loved ones. It is easily one of the best ways to enhance the quality of life of your loved ones. Along with this, it is going to allow you to get the peace of mind that you might need to ensure that your loved ones are being taken care of and looked after.
While you might want to look after your loved ones all on your own, life can get in the way. By hiring a professional caretaker that can look after them 24/7 as a live-in homecare assistant or by simply arranging for shorted daily visits, you will be able to provide them with the assistance they need to be as safe and healthy as possible.
