In Home Caregivers South Orange County

In home care is often the first and easiest step toward addressing a loved one's care needs. Often a senior's needs for assistance are relatively minor at first and introducing a caregiver for a two to three hour shift is an easy patch. For many, this solution is likely to create the least amount of opposition from the individual receiving assistance. In some cases, having a stranger come in to the home to assist with a senior's custodial needs can be unwelcome, as it may symbolize an affirmation of a deficiency in providing for their own needs.
   When introducing a caregiver or agency that supplies caregivers, it is important to recognize that it is inevitable that care needs will increase with time. This is the natural progression of aging. A three hour shift in the morning may incrementally progress to twelve or twenty four hour caregivers. This is an important factor to consider when financial planning for both current and future care needs.
   Supervision in a private care setting is often inconsistent. Beyond providing hands on care for assisting with custodial needs, you are also relying on the caregiver to make advance calls and important decisions. There are excellent caregivers available that have the heart for their role and the judgment to successfully provide services with minimal supervision. In an in home care arrangement it becomes the family's responsibility to determine if each individual is suited for the role. Hiring in home caregivers is an option that can work if there are financial resources to staff for enough hours to insure the individual's safety and the family assumes an active role in the daily care management.
   Though it may be a more challenging argument for a family member to make, it is never too soon for placement in one of our homes. We have a diverse group of seniors, grouped appropriately based on both physical and cognitive needs. There is an immense benefit to a small, warm group environment that offers consistency and support. Once situated, family members can relax with the peace of mind that their loved one is safe and well cared for.
