We all know there’s no place like home, and the vast majority of seniors age 65 and over (90 percent, according to AARP) wish to age in place in their own homes as they age. But how does that affect senior independence?
Although the desire to age in place at home rather than move to a nursing home or assisted living facility is common, it can bring about a number of difficulties for seniors who require assistance with day-to-day tasks like driving, preparing meals, bathing, ambulating, etc. The good news is that professional in-home care services, like those offered by All Care, are designed to boost senior independence and improve overall wellbeing and confidence, both inside and outside the home.
At All Care of Southern Oregon, we provide professional senior care services that support older adults all through the aging process, while helping them maintain the independence they desire. Our in home care services include:
- Accompanied transportation and companionship: Being able to get out of the house to run errands and visit with a friend are important aspects of our independence. In-home caregivers can offer transportation and even go along with seniors on outings to enhance socialization, and our caregivers are also on hand to provide companionship both in the home and on the go, to ensure seniors always have a trustworthy friend available.
- Care coordination: An in-home caregiver can recommend assistive products and adaptive devices to improve independence as well as coordinate the purchase of these products. A professional in-home care agency, like All Care, can also provide assistance with coordinating care across healthcare providers for the easiest and safest care transitions.
- Exercise and other physical activities: Physical activity plays a vital role in maintaining an older adult’s health and wellbeing. In-home caregivers help encourage and motivate seniors to participate in activities and exercise to help enrich mind, body, and spirit.
- Personal care: Each individual senior’s care needs are unique, and we can provide as much or as little care as your senior loved one requires, whether that involves a little help at home with housecleaning, assistance to safely bathe or shower, or a wide variety of other services. Whatever the needs may be, All Care has a solution to promote the peace of mind and independence each person deserves.
Maintaining senior independence is one of our top priorities as specialized Southern Oregon in-home care providers. Contact us at (541) 857-9195 to learn how we can best provide for the needs of your senior loved one.
