Hygiene, Grooming and Bathing Assistance for Seniors in Anderson, IN and Surrounding Areas
Personal Home Care in Anderson, IN, and the surrounding area
When older adults are waiting to age in place while living with physical disabilities or a chronic health condition, they typically find themselves needing assistance-- personal home care (or private duty care) is an option when this happens. This type of home care offers help with individual activities, such as dressing, bathing, and mobility. Seniors who receive this private or personal home care can maintain their independence while living at home rather than moving to a care facility.
Visiting Angels of Anderson understands how the comfort of home can be beneficial for seniors while they age. Seniors concerned about losing their independence or struggling with everyday tasks can reach out to Visiting Angels of Anderson to receive the care they need to age in place on their terms.
What Is Personal Home Care?
Personal home care is the most often and commonly used type of in-home care for seniors living with chronic health conditions, physical disabilities, or difficulties with strength, coordination, and mobility. This care usually includes a combination of tasks and activities designed to ensure the individual's safety, comfort, and well-being.
Assistance with Daily Living (also known as ADLs) is one of the essential pieces of personal home care. ADL's often include dressing, personal grooming, bathing, and toileting. Professional caregivers from Visiting Angels of Anderson have the skills and expertise required to assist with these tasks and similar jobs such as mobility and transfer assistance.
Our caregivers can also assist with other tasks such as errands, meal preparation, light housekeeping, medication reminders, and other routine activities. Our team of caregivers also offer client's companionship and conversation-- this helps reduce the risk of senior isolation.
Personal Caregiving vs. Companion Caregiving
When searching for the right home care agency, it can be difficult to tell the difference between the multiple types of caregiving. In most cases, families are unaware of the distinction between personal care and companion care, two of the most common types of in-home care.
The main difference between the two types of care is the assistance with ADLs and any other caregiving tasks that direct physical service. Personal care providers use their specific skills and abilities to provide immediate physical assistance, alongside helping with other caregiving duties.
However, companion caregivers are available to assist with errands or light housekeeping-- they cannot help with ADLs or any other tasks that involve physical assistance.
These fundamental differences are why we suggest personal care services if your loved one requires direct physical assistance. We also offer this type of care to families that need assistance with care for a chronic health condition, such as diabetes or dementia. If you have a loved one who needs this direct form of care, we suggest companion care services.
