Who Needs In-Home Care?
Individuals who qualify for in-home care include those who cannot safely or effectively complete one or more activities of daily living. Comfort Home Care generally assists families who are temporarily or permanently unable to assist in the completion of their loved one’s ADLs.
The degree to which an individual requires in-home care is always unique to their circumstances – there is no “one size fits all” approach to in-home care. For example, one individual may require minimal assistance with one ADL, while another may need continuous support with the completion of each ADL every day.
Oftentimes primary caregivers are able provide the assistance with ADLs that a loved one requires on a daily basis. In some cases, however, they may be unable to assist a loved one with specific ADLs for a brief or extended period of time. Here are a few reasons why a primary caregiver may not be able to provide ADL assistance:
- The caregiver is unable to assist with the more physically demanding tasks involved, such as helping the loved one move in and out of bed or up and down stairs
- The caregiver has personal or professional obligations and therefore requires an individual to assist their loved one while they are away
- The caregiver needs additional support while they are at work during the day
- The caregiver is temporarily unavailable to provide the care typically provided due to travel or illness
