Wondering how we can help your loved ones be healthier? Our non-medical services are instrumental in improving the health and wellness of the elderly AND their family caregivers.
You may be familiar with patients who are receiving assistance with the ADLs as satisfying these needs often requires medical care, and you may not be familiar with IADLs, which is the acronym for Instrumental Activities of Daily Living. IADL refers to six daily tasks: light housework, preparing meals, taking medications, shopping for groceries or clothes, and managing money, otherwise known as Non-Medical Care.
If you have known someone, may be even a loved one, who frequently misses their appointments, forget to take their medication, are not eating a healthy diet, or who has had several car accidents or in-home falls, they are likely in need of assistance with IADLs. This is what non-medical care is all about, and it is exactly what At Your Service HomeCare LLC., provides to our clients. Our services allows many people to continue to live independently in the comfort of their own home. We also provide our services to persons residing in Retirement homes, assisted living and nursing home facilities.
If driving is an issue, we can help your loved one keep doctor appointments, and get to the pharmacist, grocery store, and other places. Our services also ensure that nutritious meals are prepared, fluids are consumed, and that medication is taken. In addition we take care of other tasks that often become difficult for the elderly, such laundry, vacuuming, dusting, and changing of linens. We help your loved one with morning care services, transfer assist, incontinence care, evening care, medication reminders and much more!
Another benefit of non-medical care is mental stimulation through conversation, games and social outings. And we can enhance patient safety through the monitoring of baths/showers and other activities that may be dangerous of difficult for the elderly.
Although non-medical in nature, our services truly enhance the health of the elderly. Our services also provide tremendous benefits for the Family Caregivers who are often the persons taking care of IADLs for the elderly. Family Caregivers utilize our services for respite, and doing so can be a life (or job) saver for them. Many studies have shown how important Respite Care is for a Family Caregiver. As you know stress is a killer and Family Caregivers, who do not have Respite Care, suffer from considerable stress in their lives.Using our services for your loved one or for the Family Caregiver who is providing their IADLs does, absolutely, have a positive impact on these people’s health and well-being, and it can extend and enhance the quality of their lives. Our services are highly customizable, affordable and available for as often or as little as necessary based on the needs of the family.
