Personal Home Care

At Allevia Home Care, we understand our clients want to be as independent as possible. We all enjoy being able to get dressed, walk, and overall take care of ourselves independently. Unfortunately, when we become ill or elderly, some simple tasks can become difficult or even impossible to manage on our own.

Most of the time, people have to give up simple routine activities because they can’t take care of it themselves. However, with Allevia’s assisted living personal care services, this can easily be solved.

Personal Care

Defining Personal Care Services

Personal care services encompass hands-on assistance vital for daily activities that an individual may struggle to perform independently. Often termed as Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) or Instrumental Activities of Daily Life (IADLs), these services play a pivotal role in enabling individuals to maintain residence in their homes rather than transitioning to assisted living facilities or nursing homes.

Many personal care options are tailored to seniors who want to age in place in their own homes. These options are safer and more efficient because they enhance the quality of life for older adults by helping them maintain their autonomy.

What Do Personal Care Aides Provide

These services span a wide spectrum of both ADLs and IADLs, addressing fundamental yet crucial needs essential for safe independent living.

“Personal care” involves every aspect a person requires to live a comfortable, dignified life. To ensure clients can live safely and independently, our standard services include:

Personal Care Services
  • Bathing
  • Dressing and undressing
  • Meal Preparation
  • Grooming
  • Mobility assistance
  • Toileting/hygiene assistance
  • Eating
  • Light Housework
  • Companionship and Socialization
  • Medication reminders

When to Consider Home Care Services

Recipients of in-home personal care services predominantly encompass the elderly, individuals with disabilities, patients recovering from injuries or illnesses, and those managing chronic conditions such as dementia and Alzheimer’s. Unlike home health care services, personal care services are non-medical in nature and often don’t necessitate formal certification or prescriptions.

You may want to consider personal care if your loved one:

  • Struggles with chronic conditions affecting their ability to live independently
  • Has difficulty with activities of daily living like dressing, bathing, etc.
  • Should not be left alone for long periods of time
  • Needs assistance managing health conditions or medications
  • Requires transportation to medical appointments

Benefits of Personal Care Services

Opting for in-home personal care offers several advantages over institutional care, including the ability to sustain independent living, cost-effectiveness compared to assisted living or nursing homes, tailored care meeting specific needs, and a notable enhancement in quality of life, fostering a sense of independence and fostering strong caregiver-client relationships

An Allevia Home Care representative can meet with you and your loved one to discuss their needs and make thoughtful recommendations for care. We develop customized care plans that provide clients the support they need while allowing them to maintain their independence.

If you have a relative in need of daily assistance, contact Allevia Home Care. We can bring comfort to your loved one and peace of mind to you. Our compassionate home health aides and personal care assistants can help your family manage this difficult situation with respect and care. Please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Frequently Asked Questions

What legal options are available for elderly individuals without caregivers?

When an elderly person lacks a designated caregiver, legal options can help ensure their rights and well-being are protected. These options include:

  • Guardianship: In situations where an individual is deemed unable to make decisions independently, a court may appoint a legal guardian to act in their best interests.
  • Power of Attorney: A legal document granting someone the authority to make decisions on behalf of the elderly person, particularly in financial or healthcare matters.
  • Advanced Healthcare Directive: This document outlines an individual’s preferences for medical treatment if they become unable to express their wishes, providing clarity in challenging situations.

How quickly can Allevia Home Care start care after my initial inquiry?

In most cases we can begin senior care services within 1 week of first contacting our agency. We strive to respond promptly to urgent senior assistance requests.

How can communities contribute to the well-being of elderly residents without caregivers?

Communities play a vital role in supporting elderly residents who lack caregivers. Ways in which communities can contribute to their well-being include:

  • Volunteer Programs: Establishing volunteer programs can provide companionship, assistance with errands, and help with daily tasks for elderly individuals.
  • Educational Initiatives: Communities can organize workshops and educational programs to raise awareness about the needs of the elderly, fostering a more supportive environment.
  • Neighborhood Watch Programs: Creating neighborhood watch programs encourages residents to look out for each other, ensuring the safety of elderly individuals without caregivers.

Do your senior care aides have special training or qualifications?

Yes, we thoroughly screen applicants and provide ongoing senior care training, so clients receive compassionate, competent assistance.

What Is Personal Care?

Personal care is one of the most common types of in-home care. Generally, this type of care is meant for individuals with chronic health conditions, physical disabilities, or difficulties with strength, coordination, and mobility. Care will typically include a combination of tasks and activities, which are designed to ensure the individual’s safety, comfort, and well-being.

What Happens If an Elderly Person Has No One to Care for Them?

When elderly individuals find themselves without a caregiver, various support services can step in to provide assistance and ensure their well-being. These services may include:

  • Government Assistance Programs: Many governments have social welfare programs designed to support elderly citizens. These programs may offer financial aid, housing assistance, and access to healthcare services.
  • Non-Profit Organizations: Numerous non-profit organizations focus on the welfare of the elderly. These organizations often provide services such as meal delivery, transportation, and companionship programs.
  • Community Resources: Local communities may offer resources such as senior centers, where the elderly can engage in social activities, receive health check-ups, and access educational programs.
