Personal Care in Las Cruces
Personal care, a term often used as a synonym for private duty care, is available from Visiting Angels® Las Cruces. This form of senior care allows older adults to stay at home while coping with a physical disability, chronic health issue, or other hindrance to their everyday life. As it includes support with essential activities like getting dressed, taking a shower, and tasks requiring mobility, it can make a huge difference for seniors who are limited by strength or balance issues. Moreover, these individuals can continue enjoying their independence and their home life for longer when they work with one of our care professionals.
What is Personal Care?
As a care type that is commonly requested by our care recipients in the Las Cruces area, personal care covers a broad range of needs. Care plans in this category generally include a combination of services and help with multiple activities, all with the goal of promoting the care recipient's safety, enhancing their comfort, and uplifting their well-being.
Caregivers from Visiting Angels Las Cruces are ready to help out with crucial tasks such as:
- Dressing and personal grooming
- Bathing and using the toilet
- Transferring from point A to point B
- Running errands and picking up prescriptions
- Remembering medication schedules
- Light housekeeping and meal preparation
- Engagement in conversation and social interactions
When hiring a care provider for someone in need, you may have difficulty determining whether they require personal care or companion care services. These two categories cover much of the same ground, but personal care differs from companion care in its inclusion of help with activities of daily living (ADLs) that require a heightened level of mobility. Companion care, in contrast, focuses on the social needs of seniors and light assistance with tasks such as grocery shopping and tidying up.
