Does my loved one need assistance?
The term home health care refers to a variety of medical or health-oriented services provided in the home. For the elderly person who needs some assistance to remain in the home but is not able to be fully independent, home health care offers both service and peace of mind. At Patient Caregivers, our friendly, competent staff provide companionship and ensure you or your loved one stay safe and have all needs met while remaining at home.
Why Home Health Care?
Although injuries and illness may mean the need for ongoing care, many individuals simply need some extra help. Advancing age may make it more difficult to perform basic tasks of daily living, or a senior may no longer be comfortable driving. Some individuals need help managing their medications or with basic hygiene. Home health care can ensure all of those needs are met in the familiar surroundings of one’s own home.
Who Needs Home Care?
Basic home health is for the person who wants to remain at home despite physical limitations. These clients may need help with meal preparation, grooming, shopping, housework or transportation. Some clients need nursing care or services like physical or occupational therapy. Although each agency is different, nearly all offer services that include basic support as well as nursing care for more complex needs. Each client’s care plan is customized to meet his or her individual needs.
Whether the need is for temporary services or something long term, home care is nearly always an option. For more information about Patient Caregivers or to learn how Patient Caregivers can help you and your loved one, please contact us at (713) 227-3448
