Personal Care in Dover
Seniors who need personal care assistance can rely on Visiting Angels® Dover to help them age in place. Our local care agency offers a customized personal care program, which is sometimes also referred to as private duty care, to make it possible for individuals with disabilities and chronic conditions to live at home. From support with personal routines like dressing and bathing to friendly conversation, our care providers deliver a wide range of services to help care recipients maintain their independence at home.
What is Personal Care For Dover?
We realize what a game-changer living at home can be for seniors. With the ability to age in place, they can enjoy the regular rhythms of daily life and keep up the lifestyle they prefer. However, those with challenging age-related conditions or physical disabilities can find it difficult or even dangerous to complete basic activities of daily living. Without a reliable form of external support, they may have to make a heart-wrenching move into an outside care facility.
Thanks to our services, individuals across the Dover area can stay at home despite the difficulties of disabilities and chronic issues. As one of the most common types of home care, personal care is making a difference for those who need support with tasks such as:
- Getting dressed
- Tidying up the house
- Going to appointments
- Remembering to take medications
- General mobility
- Going on errands
Our caregivers are prepared to provide all the above services and more. For example, they offer compassionate companionship for seniors who are at risk of loneliness and isolation. In addition, they offer respite for family caregivers who feel overwhelmed or burned out.
Differences Between Personal Care and Companion Care
Our personal care and companion care programs overlap in many ways, but there is a key distinction to be made between the two. Personal caregiving is designed for seniors who require direct physical assistance and is typically the right type of care for those with Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, or mobility issues. Companion care, on the other hand, is best for older adults who could benefit from a helping hand with everyday tasks and reliable companionship.
