Senior Home Care Services Philadelphia
Senior Home Care Services – Philadelphia
As people get older, they often find they simply cannot do what they wish they could anymore. Family and friends step in and begin offering assistance. When medical conditions play into the picture, the amount of time necessary for proper care increases, and people find themselves resentful of their loved ones with extensive needs. Through no fault of their own, the caregivers feel stuck and exhausted. That is where AmeriBest Senior Home Care Services in Philadelphia, PA can step in and provide relief.
Over time, caregiver burnout becomes palatable. It affects all aspects of a person’s life. They may be distracted at work, or constantly running behind on personal commitments. The goal of our agency is to make sure you have peace of mind knowing your loved one is in good hands, and safe. It’s time for a much-deserved break.
Apprehension about Hiring an Aide Service
Most people have no idea how to go about looking for a home care service provider. And when they do start the process, there are always misgivings and a sense of guilt. Don’t beat yourself up. The Senior in your life will benefit from an aide greatly, and so will you!
While you are putting your loved one’s needs first, a professional caregiver is a boon for you too. When an aide is in place, you get “downtime” to do all those little things you’ve pushed aside. You can also enjoy some much-needed rest.
What our Home Health Aide (HHA) Service in Philadelphia, PA Offers
What does senior home care offer your elder? A lot of things, some of which you may not have considered. For one thing, AmeriBest’s home health aides are a fresh face in your home. They’re going to get to know the individual, learn about their “likes” and “dislikes” and offer both socialization and companionship. Many older people begin feeling isolated, so the attention provides a positive emotional bump.
Even if you’re in the home when an aide is in place you won’t be at their side 24-7. Our professionals keep an eye on things, trying to notice situations around the home that could prove to be safety hazards. Do you know that rug in your hallway? Those are major culprits for slip-and-fall risks. Also, an aide can help with med management by checking daily counts, so nothing gets missed.
Around the home, most people have a sense of where they want everything and how they want it to look. You probably don’t have time to finish all the little touches that make your loved one smile. Our caregiver can fill in those gaps, once there’s a personalized plan of care in place.
From a medical perspective, we have private duty nurses who can do a wellness check. They’ll evaluate an individual for any warning signs that could indicate a doctor’s visit is in order. All such gathered information is dutifully communicated to the Seniors’ health care providers.
What makes AmeriBest Different?
Professionalism and personalization are the foundation of AmeriBest’s mission. We have become a top-ranking health care provider because of our dedication to our clients and our ongoing investment in finding the very best staff members.
