There really is no place like home, and the great majority of adults age 65 and over, 90 percent per AARP, wish to age in place in their own homes as they grow older. But how does that have an impact on senior independence?
While the desire to remain at home rather than face a move is rather common, it can present many difficulties for seniors who need assistance with day-to-day tasks such as driving, fixing meals, bathing, ambulating, etc. The good news is that Sacramento home care services, like those offered by Live Well at Home by Eskaton, are designed to support senior independence and enhance wellbeing and confidence both inside and outside the home.
At Live Well at Home of Sacramento, we offer professional elder care services that support older adults throughout the aging process and help them maintain the independence they desire. Our services include:
- Escorted transportation and companionship: Getting out of the house to run errands and socialize with a friend are important elements of our independence. In-home caregivers can provide transportation and even go along with seniors on outings to increase socialization, and our caregivers are also available to provide companionship in the senior’s home and on the go to ensure your loved one always has a trustworthy friend by her side.
- Coordination of care: An in-home caregiver can suggest assistive products and adaptive devices to enhance independence and coordinate the purchase of these products. A professional in-home care agency can also provide assistance with coordination of care across healthcare providers for the easiest and safest care transitions.
- Exercise and activities: Exercise plays a significant role in maintaining an older adult’s physical and mental wellbeing. In-home caregivers help provide encouragement to participate in activities and exercise to help enrich the senior’s mind, body, and spirit.
- Personalized assistance: Each senior’s care needs are unique, and we can provide as much or as little care as your senior loved one needs, whether that means a little help at home with housework, assistance to bathe safely, or a wide variety of other services. Regardless of what the needs may be, Live Well at Home 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 Sacramento home care providers. Contact us today to learn how we can best meet your senior loved one’s needs.
