Personal Care in El Dorado Hills
Living in the comfort of home can be crucial to the well-being of seniors. However, families often believe that if their loved one has more advanced care needs, they need to move to an assisted living facility. The personal care services offered by our caregivers in El Dorado Hills give seniors the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of professional care while living at home.
If your loved one is struggling with everyday activities and needs high-quality support to stay both safe and comfortable, Visiting Angels® Gold Country can provide care that helps them continue living on their own terms.
What is Personal Care?
Personal care is a common type of senior care that involves direct physical support. This care is often most suitable for individuals who have been diagnosed with chronic health conditions, have mobility limitations or physical disabilities, or are dealing with other circumstances that make certain activities a struggle. Our care plans of this type commonly include support with a combination of daily tasks and routines and are always designed to promote the care recipient's overall well-being in addition to their personal security and comfort.
Personal care revolves around providing personalized assistance with activities of daily living, which are sometimes called ADLs. Here are some of the various ADLs our caregivers can assist with:
- Getting dressed
- Grooming activities
- Bathing or showering
- General mobility
- Transfer assistance
Caregivers are also ready to offer support with other tasks that may make up the senior's daily routine, such as:
- Light chores
- Medication reminders
- Cooking meals
- Running errands
- Social interaction
Personal Care vs. Companion Care
One of the most important things to keep in mind when considering getting started with this care type is how it is differentiated from companion care. Companion care also includes support with routines around the home, but does not involve direct physical assistance with personal care routines. Therefore, if your loved one does not require a high level of assistance, but rather only basic support and companionship, companion care will be a better option for them.
If you're still unsure of which care type to choose, you can always turn to our team in the El Dorado Hills area for support! We offer free consultations in which we will learn more about your loved one's daily needs and provide our expert recommendations for their care.
