Considering Supportive Homecare Options

Whether you are in your 60s or 70s, have you considered your future living arrangements? Perhaps you live in a multistory home with a tricky staircase and a bathroom only on one floor? If this sounds familiar, it’s time to put some thought into supportive homecare options for your future.

Do You Plan on Moving?

What would you do if you could no longer live in your own home? Do you have a child to live with? Of course, there are advantages to living with a child and it is certainly an option for homecare for the elderly. Two major benefits include:

  • You are surrounded by loving family
  • You have people you are familiar with, helping you with your daily tasks

However, there are disadvantages to this solution, too, such as:

  • Losing the familiarity of your community and friends
  • Your family’s home may also have steep staircases
  • You may no longer be able to enjoy your independence
  • You may have to throw out treasured keepsakes to make space for moving in with family

How About Aging in Place?supportive-homecare-options

If you would much prefer to enjoy aging on place, but fear that your home is not up to aging with you and your new needs, there are a few things you can do to ensure you can continue to live comfortably in the embrace of your home, such as:

  • Installing slip-resistant floors
  • Widening doorways to accommodate wheelchairs or walkers
  • Installing a stair lift if you have stairs
  • Remote control lighting
  • Installing rails and ramps
  • Consider a walk-in shower

Besides those supportive homecare options, there is also the option of in home health care service. Professionals who are familiar with homecare for the elderly will ensure you get to live as comfortable a life as possible while maintaining your independence.

Supportive Homecare Options – the Benefits of an In-Home Health Care Service

  1. All the Comforts of Home

For many seniors, the feeling of being at home where they are close to their friends and family can promote independence and recovery from illnesses or operations. Homecare for the elderly is ideal for rehabilitation, and research has shown that people tend to heal quicker in the comfort of their own home.

  1. Personalized Care

Aging in place with the assistance of in-home healthcare means you can enjoy quality care and one-on-one attention to ensure you have a comfortable lifestyle.

  1. Peace of Mind for the Elderly and Their Family

When you and your family decide to employ the services of in-home care professionals for a senior family member, you’re doing more than just making sure you receive top-quality care. You are also ensuring peace of mind for your family members. Often, it is nearly impossible for family members to provide the level and range of care you need. With the responsibilities of jobs, children, spouses, and their own life to lead, it can be tough being responsible for an elder, too. With professional and supportive homecare options like in-home health care, your family won’t feel like they are giving up on you and you can rest assured that you are in good hands.

5 Steps to Consider Before Hiring a Caregiver

Filed under: home health care — seniorlivingguide @ 5:50 pm

Courtesy of Caring People Inc.

Many seniors are adamantly opposed to nursing homes or assisted living facilities, hiring-a-caregiverand yet some help will be required for them to remain at home. Entrusting your loved one to a caregiver is a big step, and must be undertaken with informed caution. While you may feel anxious about handing over the care of your family member to a stranger, using these 5 steps to guide your decisions when hiring a caregiver can give you confidence throughout the process.

1) Credentials – When hiring a caregiver, always examine the candidate’s credentials.

Ask for proof of relevant training, certifications, and experience. Are they Red Cross certified in CPR and First Aid? Are they trained to handle medications?

In some states, in-home caregivers may be required to hold certain licenses and/or certifications. Check with your county and state regulatory agencies for their requirements. Be sure to review any relevant documentation with the caregiver or agency.

What are the needs of your loved one? Is the candidate able and willing to provide for these needs, even though some may not necessarily be medical-related? Evaluate the values and preferences of your loved one. He or she may be more comfortable with a caregiver who shares his or her cultural background and/or language.

Your loved one may also have a preference between a male or female caregiver, especially if personal care is required.

2 ) References – Always ask for more references than those offered by the caregiver, and speak with everyone.

Listen for complaints, comments, and also any subtle hesitancy to answer questions regarding the candidate. Ask about tenure and relational skills. The in-home caregiver will become part of your family in a very real sense, so do not rush this part of the process.

3) Background Checks – Those candidates who provide the required credentials and positive references should then submit to a background investigation by a reputable agency.

While the professionals perform their due diligence, do some searching of your own. Look up the individual on social media sites and do a Google search of their name. Social media can be an illuminating window into the real person under consideration.

When hiring a caregiver for your loved one, leave no stone unturned.

4) Legal Matters – Contracts must detail employment terms including, but not limited to, duties, privileges, compensation and benefits, time off, performance reviews, requirements for transportation and mileage reimbursement, notices and severance issues, and confidentiality.

Many problems can be avoided by compiling a clear contract.

5) Finances & Taxes – The difference between an employee and an independent contractor depends on control in the workplace.

Before hiring a caregiver, determine with the caregiver how they will be treated for employment and tax purposes. Do not consider hiding your in-home caregiver expenses for tax purposes. Paying a caregiver under the table is against federal law and can have serious consequences.

Hiring a caregiver for your loved one is a sensitive process that should not be rushed; but neither should it be feared. Follow these 5 guidelines, take your time, and make solid decisions. You, and your loved one, will be glad you did.
