It really pays to utilize the services of a home health aide for relatives with difficult living circumstances. It’s a great support mechanism to help you care for an elderly relative while still handling your daily responsibilities like work, children, and running errands.
This is a non-exhaustive list of some of the benefits of hiring home health care services.
It’s a safe alternative to driving by oneself.
At some point, it’s not a good idea for elderly seniors to drive a car by themselves if they suffer from a serious condition. Our trained staff not only provides excellent medical treatments but also covers the intangibles like transportation.
You can quickly address emergencies and avoid serious injuries.
Do you have an aging parent who is at risk of falling and getting hurt more easily? A dedicated home health aide can keep an eye on them and detect and eliminate obstacles that could cause accidents in the home.
Home health aides can monitor health, hygiene, and medication usage.
There is a lot of complexity to managing health and personal hygiene during the advanced years of our lives. For medications, it helps to have someone answer questions and monitor how well they comply with the doctor’s recommendations. The aide can also help when it gets harder to handle bathing and personal hygiene habits.
It’s a nice source of companionship.
If your relative struggles to cope with loneliness when everyone is away at work, this can be a huge mental-health benefit. We specifically train and coach our staff to focus on becoming friends with their clients. This small gesture is enough to bolster one’s quality of life severalfold.
Home health aides are a viable and affordable alternative to assisted living facilities.
Sometimes it’s very difficult to avoid the need for assisting-living services, but it’s nice to know there are other approaches. Our services are far less expensive and can address a myriad of complex needs such as gastrostomy tube care or infusion therapy. Vital services like these can be costly, however. That’s why we work with customers through several payment options and insurance carriers like Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Florida Blue.
