Sometimes, a family might not want to go to a nursing facility to receive the care that is needed for health or safety issues. A home care service can come to the home to provide the care that is needed on certain days of the week or 24 hours a day depending on how often the person needs someone in the home. There are a few different types of personal care services Greenwich CT companies offer. When you know that this is the kind of service that you need, it’s best to talk to a few different companies to get a better understanding of how they treat clients and to learn about the background of the company. Get referrals as well before you hire someone to care for your loved one.
A personal assistant can come to the home to help with everything from bathing to cooking meals. Someone will come to the home to find out what the client needs help with and assign a caregiver who can perform those services. Most of the time, the same worker will come to the home so that the client feels comfortable. There are also caregivers who help with transportation to doctor’s appointments, hair appointments, and to run errands. Some businesses provide domestic services that the client can no longer perform in the home. These include cleaning the home, doing laundry, ironing, and gardening. Domestic services can be scheduled for certain days of the week or for every day along with other services that the client receives. Assistance with meals can be given whether it’s preparing meals that the client or a family member can heat later or assist with feeding the client. Caregivers can also help with medications so that the client takes them as scheduled and so that the client doesn’t confuse medications with each other.
