Home Care

Nearly 90 percent of seniors want to stay in their homes as they age. That’s why ProperCare offers home care services, which allow many seniors to “age in place.” Here are just some of the ways we help older adults stay safe in their own homes.

Companionship

One of the greatest benefits of home care is often overlooked – sharing life with another person. Experts estimate that about 43 percent of seniors report feeling lonely at least some of the time, which not only reduces one’s quality of life, it can have disastrous effects on one’s health and well-being. A home care professional can provide someone to talk to and share life’s joys and challenges.

Personal care

Looking good helps us feel better about ourselves. Our care companions are able to help people with dressing, bathing and grooming in a way that preserves their dignity and independence.

Medication compliance

We are also able to provide reminders when it’s time to take medications or begin a prescribed daily exercise routine.

Fall prevention

Falls are a major cause of injury among older adults and a home caregiver can help ensure the home is free of many of the common obstacles that cause falls, such as excessive clutter, loose area rugs, and blocked pathways. They can also work with clients to find other ways to reduce fall risk, such as assisting with a physician-approved exercise program, accompanying clients on walks and simply being around to get items that are out of their reach.

Household chores

A home caregiver can also help with daily errands, such as light housekeeping, laundry and ironing, cooking, and grocery shopping.

Transportation

Home caregivers can provide transportation to and from medical appointments, church services, and special events.
