Types Of Home Care For The Elderly
Here's a quick breakdown on the four main types of home care:
- In-home care: includes general and intimate (personal) care solutions
- Respite care: this gives a much needed break for family (volunteer) caregivers
- Palliative care and end of life care
- Dementia and Alzheimer’s home care for the elderly
Assistance With Physical Transferring And Positioning
For the uninitiated, assisting with the physical transfer of a loved one is no easy feat. It can be awkward at best and dangerous at worst. The Comfort Keepers of Royal Oak receive specific training to do the job properly. There's a skill to it that requires both verbal and physical cueing, as well as physical help to move the client. Sometimes this will involve special tools. It's not only a case of safely moving the senior from A to B either. There's the correct positioning to consider too.
To correctly position and reposition folks with limited mobility are challenges for the inexperienced. This is particularly the case with larger people. This kind of home care for the elderly requires a special kind of caregiver, and one that has the physical strength too. Safe handling and transfer is important for the caregiver as well as the care recipient. This is why our Comfort Keepers go through essential training for the purpose. Safely moving a person from their bed to a chair or chair to a bed is only part of it. Placing someone in the correct posture positions is also crucial for their comfort and wellbeing.
