You don’t go see a dentist for your headaches, so why have an “one size fit all” type of care like many nursing homes have for seniors. Many seniors are avoiding the nursing facilities because they wish to remain comfortable at home while being independent. The in home care option is growing in popularity, and there are different types of caregivers to choose form in order to best fit the individual needs of the senior.
If the senior is relatively healthy, but might be dangerous for them to do some of the household chores, running errands, and other daily tasks, then a senior companion/home assistant is perfect for their needs. However, if a senior is experience more serious ailments, including difficulty walking, bathing, or other routine and daily living activities, then a personal care assistant or caregiver can provide the assistance in these areas. Home health aides or certified nurse aides (CNA) are unskilled health aides who does not have the skills of a nurse, but they are trained to take vital signs, non-sterile would care, range of motion exercise, and can administer pre-dosed and pre-measured medication for the senior.
