Let’s Learn About Home Care Services Together!
My name is Grace DeStrauss.
My parents are still young and that is why they will not be needing Home Care Services yet. But what is home care services?
Home care services is a care that allows a person with special needs stay in their home. This home care services is very helpful for most household especially if in the household, a member of the family may be needing special attentions and care most especially for people who are getting older, are chronically ill, recovering from surgery, or disabled.
From what I knew about home care services, it includes:
• Personal care, such as help with bathing, washing your hair, or getting dressed
• Homemaking, such as cleaning, yard work, and laundry
• Cooking or delivering meals
• Health care, such as having a home health aide come to your home
You can get the almost any type of help you wanted in your home and this services are free and or maybe donated. Usually home care services are covered by government programs and your health insurance. Health insurance are helpful as they cover the cost of certain home care services.
When my grandfather was in need of constant attention and help, we called for the help of the home care services. They were really helpful to us. They get to take care of my grandfather and we don’t have to do anything, only assisting from time to time if ever it is really needed.
Without the help of the home care services, we would be very busy in our works and chores to take care of grandfather and we don’t want that to happen. We don’t want to neglect the needs and constant supervision of my grandfather.
Well, I am always talking about my grandfather this, grandfather that. My grandfather was not actually that old but in an early time, he already needed constant care. It all started from when he had stroke. My grandfather has high blood and a smoker. We really insisted that he should stop smoking but he can never let go with this addiction. Anyway, he had the stroke that resulted him not to be able to talk as well as move a lot and walk.
Since grandfather’s children are all married and already with their respective families, they cannot guarantee to be able to care for him 24/7 and so that was a problem for us in the family. Well, we could take him in our home, it’s just that he doesn’t want to stay in our home because we live in the city. He will be very lonely as he doesn’t know anyone in the neighbourhood. He insisted through gestures that he would rather stay and so that was another problem. We need help. We need someone to look for my grandfather and that is where we were able to learn about Home Care services.
I don’t really know about home care services that much and because of our lack of experience with it as well as knowledge, we had a hard time choosing for the best services and this is why I dedicate this website of mine to share to you my readers the tips and advices that I have learned when I experienced the services of the Home Care services.
