As your loved ones grow into their senior years, you would begin to consider options on how to provide them the extra care and assistance they need in their day-to-day living. You may feel the need to place your elderly loved ones in a shared residential home, and although the idea of employing home care services instead may be brought up, you’d probably have your doubts, not knowing the full scope of what in-home care has to offer.
Before deciding on anything, it is important to first consider the circumstances surrounding your elderly loved ones, and their particular needs in day-to-day life. Although a shared residential home offers 24/7 care, your elderly loved ones may prefer to live on their own—especially when they are still capable of performing most activities of daily living.
We are a home care service provider in Hawaii that provides the following types of in-home care services that are personalized to the specific needs of your senior loved ones:
- Personal Care
Personal care services would include daily personal tasks such as bathing, grooming and hygiene, dressing, toileting, and mobility assistance. For these tasks, our care providers are trained and well-equipped to properly handle and assist your senior loved ones.
