Did you know that Parkinson’s disease is the second most common age-related neurodegenerative disorder after Alzheimer’s disease? Considering this, factors which might contribute to a senior needing home care include physical impairments or disabilities, a new diagnosis, post-surgery recovery, worsening ailments, and declining overall health.
If you don’t want to put your loved one in a senior housing facility, at home care can be a great option! For elderly adults who are no longer independent or in good health, aging at home may be the best next step.
The proper health protection and guidance from in-home care can make life easier for your aging loved one while letting them maintain their sense of independence.
Here are some of the various types of home healthcare solutions for your senior:
- Companionship & Concierge Solutions
- Specialized Homecare
- Meal Services
- Safe & Accessible Transportation Solutions
- End of Life Homecare
- Convenient, Safe Solutions
Companionship & Concierge Solutions
Bluebird Homecare’s companion services provide your aging loved one with the company, on-site supervision and assistance that they need to remain independent and in their own homes. We’ve taken the provision of home care and assistance to our aging clients to a whole new level with our companionship and concierge services.
In short, we do whatever we can to help make your life easier, less stressful, or more comfortable. Let your senior caregiver take care of the things your loved one no longer can. From scheduling appointments to ensuring bills are sent out in a timely manner, your senior’s caregiver will keep your loved one safe and secure. Bluebird Homecare has you covered.
At Bluebird Homecare, we understand the emotional and physical toll that specialized senior diseases can take. When it comes to Parkinson’s, dementia or Alzheimer’s, the care for your senior loved one can often take more time than you may have.
As your parents or loved one may begin to experience confusion, difficulty remembering or performing simple tasks, or trouble with daily activities, care can become even more difficult. Because you know home is the best place for your family and is where they want to be, the Bluebird staff is available to provide non-medical assistance with common daily challenges.
Preparing meals is among the most challenging of the Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). Many aging or disabled individuals struggle to plan, prepare, or remember to eat the nutritious meals that they need to stay healthy and independent. Bluebird Homecare understands this struggle; that’s why we can help provide your loved one with the healthy, consistent meals they deserve.
Our at home health caregivers can not only supply your senior loved one with companionship, but can ensure they don’t hurt themselves in the kitchen and that they eat when they need to throughout the day.
Safe & Accessible Transportation Solutions
Transportation is one of the key factors in maintaining one’s independence, but many elderly and disabled people have reached a point where handling their own transportation is challenging or impossible. When it comes to trips to the grocery store, doctors appointments and more, you’re likely going to need someone to accompany or transport your senior loved one when you cannot.
With the right at home solutions, your senior caregiver will make sure your loved one gets to their destinations safely and on time. If you or someone you love is having trouble driving or procuring transportation for themselves, Bluebird Homecare can help.
End of Life Homecare
It is not uncommon for an elderly parent to need a higher level of care, but still wish to remain at home. Especially when it comes to an end of life diagnosis, ensuring a sense of normalcy can be the best way to go for your loved one.
By choosing Bluebird’s end of life homecare services, you can help your loved one maintain their independence while still receiving the supervision, assistance, and support that they need. Similarly, you can keep them at home where they can spend their last days in a familiar place, with people they love.
Convenient, Safe Solutions
It is often the most convenient for seniors to receive care at home, regardless of where they reside. Furthermore, they will retain most of their independence as they receive more individualized home healthcare. As family members or friends age, it is natural to worry about their well-being and safety.
No matter where you choose to care for your loved one, you want to maintain a sense of ease when thinking about them. You won’t need to worry about your loved one’s safety if they receive care at home, since they will be monitored 24 hours a day.
Care at home can give you peace of mind, especially when it comes to caring for elderly loved ones. Provide senior loved ones with a sense of normalcy without reducing their sense of self.
Keep Your Loved Ones at Home
Aging in one’s own home is a great option to ensure that you or a loved one maintain independence and a familiar life, all while costing less than most other assisted living options. Bluebird Homecare helps make healthy, independent living in the home possible. If you or a loved one is looking to age in place, contact us to see how we can help.
