Discover the benefits of having an in-home caregiver in your home.
Do you have an elderly parent living by themselves that you worry can’t carry out day-to-day tasks anymore? Are you wondering whether having an in-home caregiver could provide your loved one with the freedom they need to still live in their home while also taking on some of the day-to-day responsibilities? If so, our Houma, LA, personal care coordinator Mr. Richard Benoit and doctor Dr. Patrick Haydel are here to explain what an in-home caregiver can do for you or a family member.
What does an in-home caregiver do?
The purpose of an in-home caregiver is to provide assistance in the home for someone who may not be able to take on the daily activities and tasks required in the home or with regards to personal care. An in-home caregiver can be invaluable for the elderly or someone with physical or developmental disabilities.
An in-home caregiver can help with:
- Personal care: this includes everything from eating and bathing to grooming and getting dressed
- Household tasks and responsibilities: this includes laundry, grocery shopping, cleaning and preparing meals
- Health care: this includes taking your medication and going to doctor’s appointments
- Emotional support: this includes socializing and companionship
An in-home caregiver can help significantly, giving you the freedom to have time to yourself and to relax. Our Houma, LA, in-home caregivers can do as much as you need from them. We offer tailor-made care plans to ensure that you or a loved one gets the assistance and support they need to make living at home a possibility.
While an in-home caregiver can help you get ready in the morning, can perform light cleaning tasks and even help with dinner, it’s important to know that our caregivers also provide an emotional support to bolster mental and social wellbeing. We know for many people who stay in their homes, they don’t get to socialize or enjoy regular conversations with others.
By having a caregiver in the home we can also talk to your loved ones and provide meaningful conversation. We also know how to have a little fun, too. So if your family member enjoys card games, puzzles or other activities, we can also take part in these activities together. An in-home caregiver, in many ways, becomes part of your family. We value being able to provide our clients with the freedom they need day in and day out in the beautiful homes they’ve created.
