This can be frustrating for a senior who has spent most of their adult life fully independent. In this instance, personal care can be a great benefit to explore.
At Amara Home Care, Inc., we provide personal care services to seniors throughout greater Chattanooga, Tennessee. Please contact us today if you or an elderly loved one might benefit from our home care services.
Personal care is a type of service assisting people with activities of daily living, including the following services:
Personal care allows a senior to live comfortably in their home instead of nursing facilities or in-patient hospitals. A customized care plan is built around your loved one’s unique needs, so they never have to feel like their independence is compromised and another person manages their life. Personal care is offered for patients needing temporary or prolonged assistance post-hospital discharge, adults with Alzheimer’s and other dementia conditions, Parkinson’s and related movement disorders, 24-hour care, and individuals simply needing help remaining independent.
It is important to note, personal care is different than companion care. Companion care, also known as sitting services, does not allow the caregiver to touch the patient, such as lifting or transferring them out of bed and into a wheelchair. On the contrary, personal care does allow such services and therefore is considered a higher level of care than companion care.
