As loved ones age, it is often challenging to meet their needs mentally, physically, and emotionally, and sometimes that’s because it is hard to identify the rapidly changing needs. As a loved one gets older and loses some physical or mental vigor, it is sometimes difficult to know how much to intervene. The ideal goal is to help them maintain their independence and still ensure they are safe and receiving proper support and care.
At All Seasons, home care for the body is just as important to us as home care for the mind, and by providing this care in the comfort and familiarity of one’s own living space, we can help friends and family members meet the changing needs of seniors as they occur.
All Seasons Home Care Service Areas
At All Seasons Home Care, we offer a wide variety of different levels of care throughout the aging process with flexible services that can vary as the needs of our clients change.
All Seasons Home Care for the Physical Body
As our bodies age and begin to change, we may notice alterations slowly or quickly, depending on our health and history of illness or injury. You may find that your loved one is experiencing decreased mobility, digestive issues, a change in sleep habits, an increase in pain, and/or the inability to physically perform certain tasks that used to be simple, such as the ability to shower, dress, or use the toilet on their own.
A senior’s changing physical needs can and should be met with care, attention, and dignity, and at All Seasons Home Care, we can assist with everything from pain management, mobility, gentle exercise, remembering to take medication, and all kinds of other tasks that can be updated or changed as a senior person’s physical body goes through the aging process.
All Seasons Home Care for the Mind and Emotions
When we age, our physical bodies aren’t the only thing that changes. Changes in the mind can cause alterations in mood, emotions, and cognitive ability. While these are some of the most difficult changes for seniors to experience, they are frequently challenging for family and friends to witness as well. At All Seasons Home Care, we are experienced in balancing the maintenance of dignity and independence with safety and gentleness. We not only provide activities, routines, and support to the seniors as they go through mental and emotional changes, but we also offer support to our seniors’ families and friends with respite care so that they can take care of their own mental health.
Respite care can be thought of as a “respite” or “break“ from caregiving, so that a primary caregiver, often a family member, can take care of their own lives, needs, and responsibilities. Even having respite care provided for one or two days a week or specific periods of time during the day, can allow primary caregivers to decompress, run errands, and keep themselves healthy. This break provided by All Seasons caregivers can help ensure primary caregivers stay motivated and energized, so that they can continue providing exemplary care for their loved one without burning out.
The Aging Process and Changing Needs
The aging process looks different for everyone, even though many of us experience common maladies as we grow older. At All Seasons Home Care, we like to sit down with the senior and his or her family members to come up with a personal plan, so that we can meet the specific needs they have when entering care.
Together, we determine how much or how little assistance they need, if they need help with personal errands or lighthouse work, if they would like social companionship, or someone to help with daily tasks of living such as bathing, dressing, and cooking and preparing meals. Additionally, we can adapt our plan as their needs change and the level of care needs to be modified.
Our caregivers keep in close communication with the families of our seniors to make sure the very best care is always being provided in the comfort of their own homes, so that the mental, emotional, and physical aging process is a little bit easier and a lot more comfortable.
