Top 10 Signs to Hire an Elderly Home Care Company

elderly home care - Dynamic Home Care

According to the CDC, nearly 5 million people received elderly home care in 2013, the most recent year of record. This year, 1 in 3 households are caring for a person over the age of 18 with the vast majority of these being elderly parents and loved ones. This puts a strain on families and individuals trying to work and care for loved ones and can affect the loved one’s ability to live well. If you have an elderly loved one, it’s important to understand when it’s time to hire a California elderly home care company.

Here are the 10 signs it’s time to hire a elderly home care agency in California.

1. You want what’s best for your loved one.

You have all of the love. You would do anything for your loved one, but between work, children and life, you just don’t have enough time to be there as much as you’d like or your loved one needs.

Caregivers can take on responsibilities like grocery shopping, bathing, meal preparation, assistance with toileting, transport and other basic needs when neither you nor your elder is able to perform the activities.

2. Your loved one has basic nursing needs beyond what you can handle

As our elders age, chronic conditions and various surgeries can increase the number of basic nursing needs that an elder has. Some of these may be short term and some may be for a lifetime. After an eye surgery, a patient may need twice daily eye drops. A patient may need to have regular blood pressure or glucose checks. Someone may need to closely monitor breathing during sleep or watch over them after discharge post-surgery. Catheters may need to be replaced.

Caregivers can provide many basic nursing services while coordinating with Registered Nurses, Vocational Nurses and Therapists who may also be working with the elder to provide for more advanced nursing and therapy needs.

3. Your loved one is lonely.

Loneliness can be more severe than any physical pain. It hurts. Companion services from a California elderly home care agency like Dynamic Nursing help your loved one feel connected through human conversation and just being there.

4. Your loved is in and out of the hospital.

Homecare can help keep your elder out of the hospital. In hospitals bacteria and viruses thrive and your elder is in an unfamiliar and uncomfortable place. This isn’t where you want your loved one to be if you have another option. With Dynamic Home Care in elderly home caregiving, nursing and therapy services, your loved one can receive high quality, compassionate nursing and therapy care in the comfort of home. While this care doesn’t replace a doctor, it can help your loved one stay healthier and more comfortable at home, reducing the need to go to the hospital.

5. It’s hard for your loved one to go see a doctor.

As we age, it gets harder to keep doctor appointments, despite the fact at we may need a greater frequency of care. Dynamic Nursing’s nurses and therapists can provide many medical services in between doctor visits to ensure early detection and treatment of chronic conditions.

6. You need a break.

Maybe you’ve taken on the role of fulltime caregiver, but you can’t do it all. You must take care of yourself in order to continue to provide care for someone else. Whether you need to run out for groceries, need a night out with friends or a week’s vacation with family, Dynamic Home Care has the services that give you the time you need.

7. Your loved one deserves a better quality of life.

Despite your best efforts, you may simply not be able to provide for your loved one the way you would like. Dynamic Home Care can help fill in the gaps to increase quality of life.

8. Your loved one should feel safe at home.

For older adults, falls are one the 20 most costly medical events according to the CDC. They cause pain and anxiety even if they never happen, because of the fear of such an event which can leave a loved one:

  • Helpless
  • Alone
  • Unable to contact someone
  • Unfound for several days

This is only one of many safety concerns. Homecare services can help loved ones feel safer knowing that medical professionals and other care staff are working with you to make the home a safer place.

9. Your loved one needs to feel comfortable.

As your elder ages, her comfort becomes paramount. Whether it’s help with daily tasks, maintaining hygiene, medication management, wound care, repositioning, conversation or simply someone being there, Dynamic Home Care is here to help your loved one stay comfortable.

10. You need peace of mind with the right California elderly home care agency.

You need peace of mind that your loved one is being cared for. Your loved one needs peace of mind that someone is there when they need them.

    Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic however
    , I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing
    a blog article or vice-versa? My site goes over a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each
    other. If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
    this matter to be actually something which I think I would never understand.

    It seems too complex and very broad for me. I am looking forward
    for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
