4 Types of Professional Home Care Services

Professional home care services offer assistance to individuals with difficulty performing daily activities due to illness, disability, or aging. Home Care Right at Home offers customized support and healthcare services to meet our clients’ unique requirements. Here are four types of professional in-home care services:

1. Companionship Services

Caregivers engage in conversations with the individual, fostering social connections, and reducing feelings of loneliness. This can involve discussing personal interests, or sharing stories. Our skilled caregivers participate in or facilitate games and puzzles with clients to challenge the mind and provide entertainment.

Depending on the individual’s mobility and preferences, caregivers may organize outdoor activities like walks, gardening, or bird watching to encourage physical activity. Our providers can accompany clients to social events, community gatherings, or local clubs to facilitate social interaction. Caregivers assist with meal preparation and provide the opportunity for conversation during meals.

2. Medical Alert Systems

Medical alert systems, or personal emergency response systems, are devices that provide assistance in the event of an emergency or fall. Home Care Right at Home evaluates the individual’s health, medical conditions, emergency contacts, living situation, and potential risks to offer a customized medical alert system.
In a medical emergency or other urgent situation, the monitoring center can dispatch emergency services such as paramedics, police, or firefighters to the senior’s location. The system also notifies designated family members, friends, or caregivers about the emergency. Some systems offer medication reminder features, alerting users when it’s time to take their medications.

3. Live-in Care

Round-the-clock live-in care is a home care service where a caregiver resides in the client’s home, providing continuous assistance and support. Our live-in caregivers perform light housekeeping tasks, such as cleaning, laundry, and organizing, to maintain a comfortable living environment. Our caregivers also handle telephone calls and visitors, promoting the client’s social well-being.

Caregivers may assist with transportation needs, such as accompanying clients to medical appointments or running errands. Live-in caregivers collaborate with healthcare professionals, therapists, and other healthcare team members. They provide updates on the client’s condition, follow care plans, and foster continuity of care.

4. Specialized Care

To care for individuals with Alzheimer’s, we remove tripping hazards and install handrails, boosting safety. Caregivers also help individuals with Parkinson’s by providing assistance during movements to maintain balance. Physical therapists implement tailored exercise routines that improve strength, flexibility, and coordination for clients with Parkinson’s.

For dementia clients, our providers can administer medications consistently to manage symptoms. They also support Alzheimer’s patients with activities of daily living such as dressing, bathing, and grooming. GPS location tracking sends real-time alerts to caregivers, helping to protect seniors with cognitive decline or dementia. Caregivers also prepare nutritious meals to support the health of clients with dementia, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s
