Our Woodbridge Senior Care Agency Answers Your Questions
According to the AARP, 90% of seniors would rather stay in their own homes, rather than move into a nursing home. While some seniors do need the intensive care a nursing home can provide, a great many seniors can and do thrive in their own homes for many years, even when faced with health and cognitive challenges. In fact, studies show that seniors in this segment of the aging population (who have health problems that hinder their ability to care for themselves with complete independence, yet who are not sick enough to require intensive institutionalized care), tend to live longer, healthier, more rewarding lives if given the opportunity to stay in their homes with skilled home care assistance. Our Woodbridge senior care agency knows that even with the preferable statistics, many families still have a great many questions about home care in Woodbridge, and how it can help their aging family member.
One of our most requested services as a Woodbridge senior care agency is 24-hour live-in care. Many people also wonder how it works and who would benefit from it. Our Woodbridge senior care agency can provide compassionate, skilled, professional caregivers who stay with your family member 24/7. For seniors with Alzheimer’s Disease, complications from strokes, diabetes, and advanced Parkinson’s disease, a long-term live-in caregiver can be there around the clock to provide needed assistance and companionship, as well as noticing any changes that need to be addressed with healthcare providers or family members. 24-hour home care in Woodbridge can also be provided on a short-term basis in cases where the senior expects to recover from an operation or illness, but needs help during rehabilitation. Our 24-hour caregivers can also provide respite care to family caregivers who need some time off to take care of other things or go on a refreshing vacation. Because having someone live with your senior family member is a great trust, we keep only the very finest, most compassionate and highly-skilled caregivers on our team. You can interview several of our team members to find the one(s) who would best fit with your family, and you can change at any time you feel it is necessary. Our mission is to make sure your loved one has the best service at all times.
Hourly care is another service our Woodbridge senior care agency provides. Many people ask us questions about how many hours a day one of our caregivers can visit. The answer: as many as you need. Every family is different and has different needs, so we provide affordable, customized hourly-care services that will help you and your loved one in the best way possible. One of our skilled home health aides can come for a few hours to help with personal hygiene care, medicine reminders, companionship, do a safety or wellness check, help with meals, etc. hourly home care in Woodbridge can also provide respite care for exhausted family caregivers who need to take a break for a few hours.
Many families also ask us if our Woodbridge senior care agency provides highly-skilled caregivers that can provide more specific services. Again, the answer is yes. We have skilled nurses who can provide specialized diabetes care, chronic disease management (COPD, CHF, DM), complex wound care, infusion and intravenous therapy, cardiopulmonary monitoring and assessment and much more. Our nurses coordinate with your loved one’s other healthcare providers to make sure he or she receives the best care at all times.
