The elderly who served in our military and fought for our freedoms deserve the best home care services we can give them! We believe that starts with hiring the best home caregivers to tend to those who can no longer take care of themselves. Home caregivers are vital in this role because they provide support and play an essential role in their well-being. Help at home for veterans starts with hiring the right caregiver for your loved one. Here are the top five ways that we care for veterans:
Personal Hygiene Assistance
We understand the frustrations of not being able to take care of oneself, especially for men and women who were part of the military. This is why we are here for all the personal care needs of you or your loved one. Part of caregiving for the elderly means helping them with their hygiene needs. Proper hygiene should be something we all have access to despite what may limit us. You or your loved one’s age, sickness, or limitations should not hinder good hygiene. Our home care services for personal hygiene include but aren’t limited to:
- Help with a sponge bath, tub bath, bed bath, or a shower
- Wash hair and help your loved one with their favorite hairstyle
- Help with dental hygiene
- And more
Personal Care Assistance
Besides personal hygiene assistance for your loved ones, we make sure that we handle the personal care for veterans. Help at home for veterans and their personal care needs means that our around-the-clock home care services help veterans accomplish their day-to-day activities. Our home health services for elderly veterans include but are not limited to:
- Assistance with transferring and positioning
- Light housekeeping
- Meal Preparation
Sometimes, taking medication is part of our daily routine, depending on what illness or health condition we have, but it is also quite easy to forget to take medications. Our home caregivers are here to remind your loved ones to take their medications on time and as prescribed. Help at home comes in many different forms, and this is one of the many ways we help veterans take care of themselves through our home care services for veterans.
Companionship and Emotional and Mental Support
Depression and other mental health issues can occur in veterans. Being depressed and lonely can only end up hurting our loved ones, and we understand the importance of being a support system for the elderly. Our home care services allow us to be there for your loved ones as companions and support them.
We help them:
- arrange appointments
- with morning wake-up
- with bedtime assistance
- to doctor’s visits
- with grocery list preparation
- with reading
- visit neighbors and friends
- play games or cards
- answer the telephone
- organize/mail bills and letters
- care for house plants
Mobility and Transportation
Being limited because of disabilities or injuries shouldn’t stop your loved one. Though there are limitations, our home caregivers are there to help veterans move, allowing them to complete their day-to-day activities. Maintaining an active lifestyle is important, and we want to make sure that your loved ones get to experience that.
- walk with your loved ones in their home, at the store, and outside during nice weather
- guide your loved ones if they need a walker or walk by their side while gently holding your loved one’s arm or hand
- help your loved ones get up and sit down on their favorite chair or safely get out of bed in the morning or after a nap
