In home care Portland for senior independence
Portland In-Home Care –
Aging in place is an attractive alternative for many seniors who just need a little extra help. Working with an in-home care agency can be less expensive than moving into Assisted Living because you don't have to liquidate your home. Getting extra help that enables you to be independent and stay in your home longer is worth exploring.
In-home elderly care generally refers to senior care that is not medical in nature. In-home care agencies should be willing to provide maid services, shopping and cooking. Companionship is another factor to consider.
In-home custodial care includes assistance with all the basics of daily living such as dressing, eating and personal hygiene.
You also have a right to expect assistance with toileting, transferring and walking.
Few in-home care plans provide assistance with medications beyond providing reminders.
If you have health issues you may need to look into Portland home health care.
Caregivers in most in-home care situations are trained in basic first aid and little more.
Elderly care is a good fit for you if you are a senior requiring little medical support but needing assistance with some of the tasks of daily living. With appropriate alterations to the home, such as installation of a walk-in bathtub, you can continue enjoy your senior years in the home you know and love much longer.
In-home care agencies make this possible by providing screened, sometimes medically qualified staff to assist with the activities of daily living. Rates vary from $14-$24 dollars per hour of care.
