Home Care Services for Other Health Conditions
At-home part-time and live-in help for joint replacement recovery, hip and falls, cancer and other conditions like COPD, arthritis and diabetes that interfere with normal activities.
Many older adults prefer to stay at home for as long as possible, but age-related and recurring or worsening chronic conditions such as the following can make that more difficult by interfering with activities of daily living and complicating the process of running a household and living independently:
- • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD),
asthma, other respiratory disorders
- • Cancer
- • Joint replacement – hip, knee, shoulder
- • Falls
- • Arthritis
- • Chronic pain
Senior Nannies can connect you with prescreened, reliable home caregivers who understand the challenges of aging and chronic disease and can help your spouse, parent or other loved one maintain his or her independence in the comfortable and familiar surroundings of home.
Personal home care services that caregivers from Senior Nannies commonly provide to support individuals who are recovering from surgery or illness and those whose activities are restricted due to age-related or worsening chronic health conditions include:
- • Companionship – interpersonal cognitive stimulation, facilitation of physical activity, and intervention for loneliness and depression
- • Personal care assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as hygiene/bathing/grooming, transferring/positioning, mobility/walking, toileting/incontinence, and eating
- • Personal care assistance with instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) such as meal planning, cooking, light housekeeping, laundry, pet and plant care, transportation, errands, shopping, doctor and other appointments
Personal home care services (also referred to as “custodial care”) can be provided on a part-time basis—typically 4 to 6 hours a day—in shifts, overnight, and on a full-time, live-in basis.
