Seniors Seek More Comfort with Senior Care in Durham

For many seniors, choosing to live at home is ideal. Rather than stay with a relative or move to a senior’s community, they prefer to age in place. Staying allows them to stay in a comfortable and familiar environment. But it may be time to hire a helping hand when moving around the house or personal hygiene becomes difficult.

Our Scarborough senior home care providers help with the above tasks and more. Service levels will vary depending on each client’s needs, but common areas of support include:

Housekeeping and Chores

Many caregivers will assist seniors with light housework and chores around the home. It can be challenging to move around the house when seniors have mobility issues. That’s why they may need help with laundry, sweeping, or washing dishes to maintain a safe and clean living environment.

Errands and Transportation

Seniors who no longer drive will need transportation to and from appointments, stores, and other locations. Many families prefer that a caregiver for seniors provide transportation for their loved one instead of asking them to navigate public transit or rideshare services.

Cooking and Meal Time

A caregiver for seniors can also help with nutrition. This care includes cooking and much-needed company while eating as well. Companionship is essential for seniors who live alone and may experience loneliness. Seniors will also receive supervision in the kitchen, making it safe for them to use appliances. Family members can also rest easy knowing their loved one is receiving proper nutrition.

Personal Care and Hygiene

When simple tasks become tough, senior home care can ensure hygiene remains a priority. A bathroom environment can also be a hazard for seniors. Tiles and tubs will become slippery when wet and could cause a slip or fall. To help maintain personal hygiene and proper foot care, caregivers can assist with bathing, dressing, and more.
