Are you considering home care for your loved one?
Keeping Up With Hygiene
At Your Side caregivers will make sure personal hygiene needs are taken care of with compassion and professionalism. Having assistance with hygiene needs can help seniors stay clean, comfortable and healthy. This can help seniors to avoid hospital admittance and stay more active and outgoing.
Offering Support and Companionship
At Your Side caregivers provide companionship and support for seniors, which can help them keep a positive mindset. Playing games, watching movies or just having someone to talk to can make all the difference in the world for older adults who may feel bored and lonely. Caregivers can also help clients stay active, encouraging physical activities and social events as a person's abilities allow.
In many cases, family members seek non-medical home care services after trying to do it all for too long. Juggling career responsibilities, relationships, and the needs of an aging loved one is no easy task. At Your Side caregivers can help take care of the needs of elders so family members are free to take some respite and find a comfortable balance. At Your Side can help family members restore relationships with their elder loved one, focusing on quality time and making great memories instead of just daily needs.
Care in a Familiar Setting
Non-medical care allows seniors to relax and enjoy their beloved homes. Aging in place lets seniors continue to work on their favorite hobbies, delight in the company of their loving spouses and pets, while remaining surrounded by their treasured belongings.
