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 elderly or suffer a disability, 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 personal care assistance, 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 Is The Difference Between In-Home Care And Senior Housing Options Like Assisted Living?

In home care keeps seniors safe in their own homes by providing care either hourly or live-in services. Most seniors would commonly prefer to stay in their own homes for as long as possible. Assisted living facilities are for aging adults who need more care, or need a safer environment. Assisted living facilities are a great option for people who become confused easily and may wander or may need regular medication administration by a med-tech or nurse.

What regions do you serve for in-home care?

We currently provide caregiver services across Aurora, Denver, Colorado Springs and Counties: Adams, Douglas, El Paso, Elbert, Jefferson.

Who provides Personal Care?

Personal care can be provided by a variety of professionals, including home health aides, personal care aides, and certified nursing assistants.
In addition to these professionals, there are also home care agencies that provide personal care services. These agencies employ trained professionals who can provide assistance with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, grooming, and toileting.
It is important to note that the availability of personal care providers may vary depending on the location. Therefore, it is best to check with your local Department of Health and Human Services or a Medicaid specialist to determine the availability of personal care providers in your area.

Who is eligible for Personal Care?

The eligibility criteria for personal care assistance may vary depending on the state and the Medicaid program. In general, home and community-based services are available to eligible persons aged 60 or older and to adults with disabilities between the ages of 18 and 59.

Medicaid is one of the programs that provides personal care assistance through its Medicaid State Plan and Medicaid Waiver programs. To be eligible for Medicaid, specific eligibility criteria must be met, including being a resident in the state in which one applies, financial requirements, and functional requirements.

In addition to Medicaid, there are other programs that provide personal care assistance such as Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Medicaid Waivers or Section 1115 Demonstration Waivers.

It is important to note that eligibility criteria may differ based on the state and the program. Therefore, it is best to check with your local Department of Health and Human Services or a Medicaid specialist to determine your eligibility for personal care assistance.

What are the signs that an elderly person is in need of assistance?

Identifying signs that an elderly person requires assistance is crucial for ensuring their safety and well-being. Common indicators include:

  • Changes in Physical Health: Keep an eye out for noticeable declines in mobility, changes in weight, or struggles with personal hygiene.
  • Social Withdrawal: If an elderly person becomes increasingly isolated, it may signal a need for companionship or assistance with daily activities.
  • Neglected Living Environment: A disheveled or unkempt living space may suggest difficulties in managing household tasks, indicating a need for support.

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.
