Personal Care in Harrisonburg
If your loved one needs physical assistance throughout the day, it's possible that personal care could be the right type of home care for their situation. Because this form of care covers such common needs, it is one of the most frequent care requests we receive at Visiting Angels® Harrisonburg. When your elderly family member has a professional care provider assisting them with activities of daily living, they can age in place even if they have particularly difficult circumstances.
What is Personal Care?
Personal care is a form of advanced support that is often needed by elderly adults with chronic health conditions, physical disabilities, mobility limitations, and strength or balance issues. With these services, our caregivers at Visiting Angels Harrisonburg aim to make certain seniors have all the help they need to live in the comfort of home and go about their independent lifestyle confidently and securely.
This popular form of home care covers support with the many activities that often make up seniors' daily lives. For example, take a look at some of the services that can be included in a customized care plan for a senior in need of care:
- Dignified help with using the restroom
- Physical support with bathing or showering
- Aid with getting dressed and daily grooming
- Planning out and preparing consistent meals
- Tidying up the house and doing minor chores
- Arranging transportation for running errands
- Accompanying the senior to their appointments
- Providing a source of companionship and interaction
You may notice that this care type covers many of the same activities as companion care. However, there is a crucial difference between the two categories. While personal care includes physical assistance with activities of daily living, companion care does not. This is what makes personal caregiving services so necessary for elderly adults experiencing difficulties related to their mobility. If your loved one does not have advanced needs for mobility assistance, companion care may be a better option for them.
