As we age, our needs change. Our senior loved ones may begin to require more help with daily tasks. However, they aren’t ready to leave their homes. An in-home caregiver can help seniors stay in the familiar, comfortable surroundings they love and still receive the assistance they need.
What are In-Home Caregivers?
Bluebird’s in-home caregivers are professionally trained to provide customized care in a person’s home. They carry out individualized care plans designed to provide seniors the support they need to live at home and stay connected with friends and family.
In-home caregivers help with everything from activities of daily living to making service appointments. From companionship to housekeeping to dementia and Alzheimer’s care, Bluebird’s caregivers are there to help your loved one and your family.
Contact us at Bluebird Homecare to discuss the many options available for in-home caregiving.
Develop a Plan
The first step in great in-home caregiving is to develop a plan specifically for your loved one. Bluebird’s certified homecare specialists evaluate each individual’s needs. The care plan details and focuses on the areas in which they need support.
Some seniors want help running errands or doing laundry. Others need help dressing or bathing. Our specialists design care plans that meet the current needs of each senior.
Care planning is an ongoing process. As your loved one’s needs change, our team adjusts their plan to support them, and you, so they can continue to live at home. We work with you to make sure the senior in your life is getting the services they need to safely remain in their familiar, comfortable surroundings.
Manage Health Care Needs
In-home caregivers often help seniors manage their healthcare needs. For some, that involves making sure they take scheduled medication or maintain good hygiene. For others, it means transportation to and from doctor’s appointments.
Bluebird also offers in-home care for seniors with diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, developmental disabilities, and dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.
Aging often involves increased healthcare and medical needs. An in-home caregiver can ensure that your loved one gets to their appointments and follows their provider’s instructions.
In-home caregivers also support families who are overwhelmed by the healthcare needs of their loved ones. Having a trusted, trained caregiver offers peace of mind to both seniors and their families.
Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle
A large part of in-home caregiving is allowing and encouraging seniors to maintain a healthy lifestyle. An in-home support system helps your aging loved one eat healthy meals, stay active, and maintain social connections.
All aspects of a healthy lifestyle can be challenging for seniors. Physical limitations may keep people from cooking or exercising by themselves. They may need transportation to social activities or help contacting friends and family.
An in-home caregiver not only helps arrange activities and cook meals, but they also provide companionship and facilitate social outings. Social isolation is a common problem for seniors, and one that is linked to increased risk of dementia, depression, and physical stress and illness.
A good care plan and an in-home caregiver can help your loved one maintain their physical and mental health and live a happier, more fulfilling life.
