Comprehensive Live-In Care for Seniors in Harrisburg
Many families consider home care because they want to grant their loved one’s wish to age in place. At Home Care Assistance of Harrisburg, we understand a senior’s desire to remain at home with age, and also understand a family’s concern about their loved one’s abilities to do so safely and with dignity. That is why we specialize in 24 hour live-in home care. A comprehensive alternative to assisted living, a specially trained and compassionate live-in caregiver can ensure comfort and safety by assisting your aging loved one with any or all of the following:
- Grocery shopping and nutritious meal preparation
- Light housekeeping, laundry and dishwashing
- Mobility and bed and wheelchair transfers
- Bathing, dressing, grooming and toileting
- Physical fitness or exercises recommended by doctors or therapists
- Medication reminders and prescription pick-ups
- Transportation for medical appointments and errands
24/7 Care and Monitoring for Seniors with Advanced Conditions
While live-in caregivers can be scheduled to provide seniors and their families with additional peace of mind, they are extremely beneficial for older adults who are living with advanced conditions. For instance, seniors with progressive conditions such as dementia, Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s will benefit from the continual support of a live-in caregiver – a professionally trained individual who can help a senior manage his or her symptoms, while ensuring safety and comfort. Live-in caregivers are also a great option for seniors recovering from an illness, fall, stroke or hospital stay. Caregivers will take on the senior’s daily activities so they can rest, provide support to overcome new challenges, and offer companionship to promote a fast and safe in-home recovery.
