Personal Home Care Services for Seniors

There comes a time when we could all use some help around the house. Making meals gets tiresome, the dishes pile up, and doing the laundry can become a headache after a while.

What if there was someone out there who could take these things off you or your loved one’s to-do list, allowing you to relax and enjoy the best parts of your life?

Hiring an in-home caregiver offers that exact solution with even more benefits than simply doing housework. Pacific Angels Home Care aides provide a variety of senior home care services in Aptos, Monterey, and Santa Cruz so you can focus on the more important things like friends, family, and fun.

Our personal touch home care providers are kind, caring companions who will spend their time helping you with everything from your daily personal care needs to offering emotional support and home care assistance.

What is Personal Home Care?

Many people prefer not to move to a rest or retirement home as they get older. We provide in-home care services to seniors who may not want to live in an assisted living facility or nursing home. With at home care, you can stay in your own living space that you’ve grown comfortable in and let our home care services come to you instead.

Physical difficulties or disabilities can make it challenging for older adults to accomplish basic tasks on their own. At home caregivers are specifically trained to help these individuals enjoy the highest quality of life possible. Seniors will be able to stay in a familiar place and feel the comfort, as well as independence, of living on their own.

These options are available to all seniors who could use help around their house. There’s no need for them to have a prescription from a doctor or any form of disability to hire personal care assistance. It offers the chance for these individuals to remain safe, secure, and stress-free.

Benefits of an In-Home Caregiver

Pacific Angels Home Care provides services designed to assist seniors who may be struggling with their Activities of Daily Living (ADLs).

There are six key categories that fall under these consistent tasks:

Seniors need help getting dressed

Dressing

Regardless of what we decide to wear for the day, our bodies require a good amount of balance to put on everything from shirts and undergarments to pants, socks, and shoes. Our in-home care helpers can assist with choosing what to wear and help them get into their outfit.

Seniors needing assistance showering / bathing

Showering / Bathing

The process of standing or sitting in a shower or bath can be difficult as we age and also poses risks for slips and falls. Care professionals can assist with hygiene processes like washing hair and body, as well as other basics like hair, brushing teeth, and more.

Ambulation / Getting Around

As moving from place to place becomes a slower process, issues with balance may be a problem that can be helped by a lending hand from a professional caregiver. Whether it’s a walk to the other side of the house or a stroll around the park, you’ll have an arm to hold along the way.

Toileting Bathroom Assistance for Seniors

Toileting

One of the main aspects of the ambulation concept is making it to the bathroom in time. Our home care services include providing help with toileting and cleaning individuals properly once they have finished.

Eating

Meal planning and meal preparation during the week is one of the most time-consuming processes of everyday life. In-home caregivers provide help with organizing and cooking meals, followed by cleaning up after so you don’t have to worry about a single step.

Transferring Assistance for Seniors

Transfers

Getting out of bed and standing from a couch or chair are all part of basic daily mobility. If someone needs assistance with these types of transfers, we can prevent imbalance and falls by helping seniors get up and move to their next destination whether it’s into another seat around their home or into a car.

Our wonderful team also offers caring companionship to seniors who simply need a friend around for emotional support or to enjoy hobbies and other activities with them.

How to Know When You Need At-Home Care

While struggles with activities of daily living are one of the most telltale signs you or a loved one could use in-home care services, there are additional reasons why people choose to hire home care assistance.

One of the main things that stand out as people get older is the potential for loneliness to settle in. This can often lead to further isolation or even depression if friends and family members aren’t able to be around enough.

But the companionship of an in-home caregiver provides a caring support system for the senior to find peace and joy in daily living.

Perhaps the stress of taking care of your parents or grandparents is starting to take its toll.

Respite care services are provided as well to help take the load off of your shoulders and help support your family’s independence.

Whether you need to have quality care for just a few hours or require full time, 24-hour care, our experienced senior care agency has you covered.

Have you or someone you love been frequently misplacing items like keys, TV remote, or glasses? Perhaps you have been overlooking scheduled appointments or your daily medications? If forgetfulness is becoming a pattern for yourself or a loved one, this could also be a sign it’s time for personal home care services.

Possibly the most common point that people choose to hire an at home caregiver is when they are diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s. As they move through each stage, daily life can become more and more difficult, making the added assistance a necessity.

Length of Stay in Nursing Homes

Personal Care vs Nursing Homes / Care Facilities

Having a personal care manager at home with your loved one is a much easier on them than taking them to live at care facilities.

Studies using data from the Health and Retirement Study (HRS) showed that 65% of nursing home residents died within their first year of admission.

Just as shocking, 53% of nursing home residents passed within their first 6 months.

Studies have shown that around 80% of Americans would prefer to die peacefully at home as opposed to dying in a nursing home or assisted care facility. However, only 20% actually live in their homes until they pass on.
