Personal home care services are aimed at providing elderly and disabled individuals with an opportunity to remain independent, safe and self-reliant despite their health conditions and issues related to aging. It’s mostly in-home non-medical care chosen by people, who don’t want to transition into special facilities. Personal care turns out to be a less expensive, yet a lot more convenient option than a nursing home for elderly or a similar institution.
Open Door Home Care believes that nobody is entitled to define individual’s limits apart from that individual. And, there’s no shame in asking for assistance if it gives you a chance to live an enriched, independent life. That’s why we offer compassionate and professional personal care services to elderly and disabled people in all 5 New York boroughs and Nassau County.
Our caregivers help older and handicapped adults with the daily personal care activities they used to perform on their own. This may include bathing, grooming, restroom use and a number of other everyday exercises. As the assistance is provided not by a family member, but by a trained professional, our clients are able to preserve their privacy and dignity without depriving themselves of the much-needed support.
The goal we pursue is making the client feel clean and well-maintained. Each personal hygiene and body care need of an elderly or handicapped individual is met by our caregivers. Depending on client’s requirements, they provide the following types of personal care services.
Personal care professionals help clients complete each step of their morning routine and get ready for the day: from getting out of bed and taking care of personal hygiene to changing clothes and eating a healthy breakfast. Good night’s sleep has a huge impact on the overall health of senior and disabled individuals. At the same time, restless nights are an ongoing struggle for many of them. Thus, Open Door’s caregivers not only provide assistance when it comes to night-time personal hygiene routines. They also help clients to unwind before going to bed and catch as much sleep as they can.
A lot of senior and disabled patients are capable of completing most of their personal hygiene routines on their own. But, taking a bath or a shower without someone’s assistance is often dangerous and physically challenging for them. Our personal home care specialists help senior clients overcome body care difficulties and avoid bathroom injuries.
Personal home care professionals eliminate mobility limits elderly or disabled wheelchair users and bedridden individuals may have. They help them restore the feeling of independence and become more socially active.
Restroom use is a rather sensitive issue for seniors and handicapped clients. Therefore, our professionals are trained to provide assistance with the utmost respect to client’s feelings and privacy. They’re also able to provide sensible help to individuals, who are forced to cope with occasional or frequent incontinence.
Everyone deserves to feel beautiful despite the age and numerous health problems. Open Door Home Care workers understand the pride senior and disabled individuals take in their appearance. We provide dressing, grooming, hair care and other services to make our clients look their best and lift up their mood.
In addition to the services mentioned above, personal care for seniors by Open Door may include:
The list of services is not exhaustive and may be tailored to client’s requests. If you think that you or your family member is in a position where they need personal home care assistance, don’t hesitate to contact Open Door Home Care. We’ll be happy to give you more details about our services.
