Personal Care in Yakima
Personal care assistance helps make it possible for older adults with chronic conditions, mobility limitations, or physical disabilities to live at home even as they reach advanced age. Also known as private duty care, this care type is one of the in-home care programs available at Visiting Angels® Yakima. Our services make aging in place a safer, more comfortable experience for elderly adults and allow them to continue living life on their own terms in spite of their daily challenges.
What is Personal Care?
For seniors in Yakima who struggle with strength issues, coordination concerns, or mobility problems, personal care can help limit obstacles in their day-to-day-routines. One of the most important aspects of this care type is the provision of support with conducting Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). These activities include essential tasks like getting dressed, bathing, grooming, and using the toilet.
Our caregivers at Visiting Angels Yakima are ready to deliver the direct physical support many elderly adults require to complete these tasks. In addition, they can help out with other areas in which the senior’s lack of mobility could pose a problem.
Services covered under our personal care program for the Yakima area include:
- Dignified aid with bathing or showering
- Help with personal grooming routines
- Assistance with dressing
- Arranging transportation
- Preparing nutritious meals
- Tidying up the home
- Doing light chores
- Performing errands
- Offering medication reminders
- Taking part in joyful conversation
It’s important to note that this program differs from our companion care program significantly. Companion care is reserved for seniors who do not require more advanced forms of caregiving such as direct physical assistance or help with sensitive tasks. As a result, personal care is typically the best choice for elderly adults with chronic conditions like diabetes or Parkinson’s, as well as those with physical disabilities.
