Personal Care in Norfolk

When seniors have access to personal care, a care type sometimes also referred to as private duty care, they can live at home in Norfolk even if they are dealing with disabilities or chronic health conditions. This form of home care covers support with everyday routines such as getting dressed, bathing or showering, and general mobility. Elderly adults who receive assistance with these activities can continue living independently while staying safe and comfortable in the surroundings of their choosing.

At Visiting Angels® Norfolk, NE, we are passionate about helping seniors stay where they feel most comfortable. If your loved one is concerned that a move to a care facility could result in a loss of independence, we can give them the help they need while allowing them to remain in a familiar environment.

What is Personal Care?

Personal care is a common home care type that is generally reserved for seniors who have been diagnosed with a chronic health condition, have physical disabilities that make day-to-day living a challenge, or struggle with coordination and overall mobility.

In general, this form of care revolves around giving seniors support as they complete activities of daily living, which are commonly referred to as ADLs. These activities, which range from dressing and grooming to other basic tasks, often require a greater level of mobility than many seniors possess. As a result, having the help of a caregiver can truly transform their safety and quality of life.

Here's a quick peek at some of the services often included on our customizable care plans in this category:

  • Doing light chores
  • Transfer assistance
  • Cooking meals
  • Remembering medications
  • Running errands
  • Getting dressed
  • Grooming-related tasks
  • Walking and mobility

How Personal Care Differs From Companion Care

Personal care offers more advanced support than companion care and includes direct physical assistance with many tasks. The easiest way to distinguish these care types is to consider the element of activities of daily living. If your loved one requires assistance with these activities, personal care is likely the best fit for them. If, in contrast, they only need a bit of help with running errands or completing light tasks around the house, companion care is a better option.

Of course, you can always turn to our team if you have questions about which care type will best serve your loved one. We can meet with you for a free consultation to start designing a customized home care plan according to their needs.
