If you or a loved one can no longer live independently at home, you might be considering senior home care.
In Rockville, in-home health care agencies offer a wide range of services designed to help seniors remain in their home even if they need assistance with some of their daily living activities. The specific services offered by professional home healthcare agencies can vary greatly, however.
To determine which senior home care agency is right for your needs, consider the range of services that are available as compared to your needs.
What Services Can You Expect from In-Home Senior Care?
In-home care providers typically focus on assisting seniors with what are known as the Six Activities of Daily Living, or ADLs. These are the basic functional categories that correlate with independence and self-sufficiency. Even when an individual can no longer perform ADLs on their own, in-home aides can provide the assistance and support necessary to complete these tasks.
ADL categories include:
- Bathing and Hygiene
Other services that agencies typically provide include , providing critical social interaction, providing transportation to medical appointments, and helping seniors engage in hobbies and recreation.
What Senior Care Services Do You Need?
Once you have an understanding of the different types of in-home care for seniors available in your area, you can better evaluate your requirements. Maybe you can still navigate most or all of your activities of daily living, but you would like to have a qualified aide to provide companionship and social interaction. Or perhaps you have a loved one who has mobility issues and needs support for getting up, walking around, or engaging in daily exercise.
Keep in mind that the needs of many seniors change over time, and they may lose the ability to bathe, dress, prepare meals, etc. When choosing a senior home care provider, look to the future and consider how your needs for care could grow.
What if you need specialized care, for someone dealing with dementia/Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s Disease, for example? In those circumstances, look for an agency that also has the experience and resources to meet those needs.
