Senior and Companion Care
SMost people, given the option, would rather age in place, staying in the family home they love, rather than needing to go to an assisted living or hospital setting as their care needs increase. However, staying at home can prove a challenge to senior citizens, who need additional support with day to day tasks, pain management, good nutrition and social activities. This is exactly where our senior and companion care services can help. Allow our passionate caregivers to support you or your loved one in a home setting, with a wide range of services tailored to senior members of our community.
Who May Benefit From Senior Care?
Senior care might be offered on an ongoing basis for senior citizens, or for a shorter time, to help you or an older loved one when recovering from illness, injury or a surgical procedure, for example. Our senior care service might be a temporary option you put in place to allow respite for regular carers, or may be a long term plan to help a loved one age in place. We are able to design senior and companion care plans to meet the needs of a wide range of families, and can provide the tailored care you need, for as long as you need it.
What Does Senior Care Cover?
San Antonio Home Health Care Services offer an individual approach to each person we care for. That means our senior care service can be made to fit the needs of you or your loved one. Senior care may involve a caregiver visiting a senior citizen at home to offer help with wound care after an injury or operation, monitor chronic conditions, provide medication management and administration. For others, senior care might look different. We may visit your home to help with meal planning or cooking to ensure good nutrition, to offer companionship and social contact, or to support other medical professionals with assessing issues and progress.
The Benefits Of Senior Care At Home
Senior care at home can be the key to allowing aging in place, letting senior members of the family stay in the home they love while receiving additional support for both medical and day to day needs. This form of support can be cheaper and far more enjoyable than hospital or institutional care, making it a better choice for all the family. Home based care can also be suitable if a loved one is recovering from an illness or injury, but needs some additional medical support. By having caregivers visit at home, not only can a personal care plan be provided, it’s also easier for family members to visit and to maintain many of the comforting routines of daily life.
