Personal Care in Southwest Colorado
Could personal care, sometimes known as private duty care, be the right type of in-home care for your loved one in Southwest Colorado? This form of care gives seniors the opportunity to age in place even when they require advanced support due to a disability or chronic condition. Seniors who have the support of a caregiver from Visiting Angels® Southwest Colorado can look forward to continuing with their independent lifestyle at home rather than having to move into a care center or nursing home.
The aim of our local care agency is to help seniors remain in the comfort of familiar surroundings and live on their own terms even when mobility limitations make their daily routines a struggle. We can help ensure your loved one receives the high-quality support and compassionate assistance they require to thrive while living at home.
What is Personal Care?
As one of the most commonly requested types of in-home care, personal care from Visiting Angels Southwest Colorado includes support with many different activities that make up seniors' daily routines. In general, this care type is designed to promote the comfort and well-being of individuals who have been diagnosed with a chronic health condition or are coping with issues related to their mobility.
One of the defining factors of personal care is its focus on assisting seniors with activities of daily living, known in the field of senior care as ADLs. These activities include tasks that are essential to the care recipient's well-being, from bathing and grooming to getting dressed each day.
Here are services commonly included on our care plans in this category:
- Respectful assistance with bathing or showering
- Support with grooming tasks and dressing
- Diet planning, cooking, and grocery shopping
- Running errands to the pharmacy or store
- Accompaniment to doctors' appointments
- Kind and compassionate social interaction
- Light household chores and routine activities
It's important to note that while this care type has some overlap with companion care, they are distinct categories of in-home care. Personal care is distinguished from companion care through its inclusion of direct physical support, which makes it a better choice for seniors with certain conditions or circumstances that affect their mobility and coordination.
