Many seniors today express a strong desire to age in place, meaning they want to stay in their homes for as long as possible as they grow older. However, age-related conditions such as cognitive decline and decreased mobility can make living at home challenging and unsafe without assistance. That's where Home care services from Curodoc can make a significant difference. With personalized care, companionship, and monitoring, in-home care allows seniors to remain in the comfort of their own homes while receiving the support they need.
Types of In-Home Care Services
At Curodoc, we offer different types of in-home care services to accommodate the diverse needs of seniors. These services can range from basic companionship and light housekeeping to skilled medical care administered by our specially-trained home health care aides. Let's take a closer look at the main categories of in-home care services we provide:
Companion Care Services
Our companion care providers are compassionate and attentive caregivers who offer companionship and support to seniors who may be isolated at home due to frailty, cognitive impairments, or living alone. They provide company, assistance with appointments, light meal preparation, and engage in activities that promote socialization and cognitive stimulation. Companion care is an ideal option for seniors who require some light assistance and want to combat isolation and improve their mood by forming warm relationships with their caregivers.
Personal Care Assistance
In addition to providing companionship, our home care aides also offer assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as grocery shopping, toileting, dressing, grooming, and bathing. They can also provide temporary respite care for families who may need a break from caregiving responsibilities. Many families enlist our personal care assistants to address specific needs in their home care situation, such as providing strength for lifting during bathing or ensuring privacy for personal care. Our personal care assistants can also help with meal preparation, accompany seniors to doctor visits, and provide other non-medical assistance to help seniors live at home independently for longer periods of time.
Home Health Care
For seniors who require higher-level medical care and therapy, our home healthcare services offer specialized care. Our home health aides have undergone specialized training and/or have nursing degrees or certifications to perform skilled nursing tasks such as administering injections, maintaining oxygen tubes and catheters, and conducting physical or occupational therapy. It's important to note that home health care is the only type of in-home care that involves skilled nursing or therapy services, while standard home care does not include medical services.
