How Can Our Senior Care Services Help You?

The Benefits of Placita In Home Care’s Senior Care Services

Most seniors wish to live out their lives in the comfort of their own homes instead of moving in with a relative or assisted living facility. However, many seniors begin facing challenges with fundamental tasks due to their age and declining mental or physical health. Placita In Home Care offers compassionate and reliable senior care services that allow seniors to maintain their independence while obtaining the assistance and support they need to live a safe and peaceful life.

Assistance and Support When You Need It Most

Whether you are a senior looking for an extra hand with daily tasks, or a caregiver to a loved one looking for added support, Placita In Home Care offers the senior care you are looking for. Our services range from memory care to companionship and essential assistance, from a few hours per week to a more regular basis, ensuring seniors have the opportunity to continue to enjoy their homes during their retirement years.

In-Home Care

In-home care needs look different for everyone. Placita’s in-home care is tailored to meet your individualized needs. Whether you need help with everyday tasks such as dressing, personal hygiene, and remembering to take medications, or occasional chores such as housework and running errands, our customizable plans are built to encompass your desired areas of assistance. Our compassionate caregivers take the stress off of seniors and their families by taking on the role of primary support whenever required. With time, the needs of a senior may change, and when they do, Placita’s home care plan can be altered to include new features.

Memory Care

Seniors who develop Alzheimer’s require ongoing support to manage their daily necessities. Our Alzheimer’s care services are designed to fit the unique needs of each individual with a customizable care plan that offers flexibility and understanding of the changing nature of this disease. At Placita, we understand that with the progression of Alzheimer’s, a person’s needs will evolve. What begins as partial assistance may change to more frequent monitoring and support as memory difficulties worsen. One of the main aspects of our memory care services is to ensure seniors with Alzheimer’s get the social and mental stimulation they need to support their brain health. Our memory care specialists arrange low-cost or no-cost activities, such as art classes, social hours, and more, to keep our seniors engaged and active for as long as possible.

In-Home Hospice Care

Hospice care is never an easy decision. Seniors who require hospice care often feel limited to hospice facilities, forcing them to leave the comfort and familiarity of their homes. After a lifetime of creating memories, your home becomes the place you feel most like you, and you deserve to choose if that’s where you want to live out the final stage of your life. Placita’s in-home hospice care provides all the benefits and support of a hospice facility without the devastation of having to leave your safe space. Our hospice care providers prioritize the dignity, respect, and wishes of the senior in care while providing comfort, assistance, and support for both the hospice patient and family.

Joint Replacement Care

Seniors that undergo joint replacement surgery, such as a hip or knee replacement, may require additional attention during their recovery. While these surgeries aim to increase mobility, the immediate aftercare may be challenging to navigate alone. Our joint replacement care services can reduce the stress that comes along with trying to accomplish daily duties or get to doctor appointments while healing. You may be looking for a helping hand to satisfy your household needs while you recover, or you may need transportation assistance to get to your follow-up and physical therapy appointments. No matter your joint replacement care needs, our kind care specialists can alleviate the strain of managing your aftercare and healing time alone.

Housekeeping

Our home care services can include housekeeping assistance. Chores such as cleaning and laundry may become overwhelming for seniors. Our housekeeping services are available as often as you require them. You can arrange to have a caregiver visit weekly, biweekly, or even monthly to ensure that your home remains clean, safe, and organized.

Running Errands and Transportation

Seniors who are prone to tiring easily, have limited mobility, or who may not be able to drive often require additional help to complete their errands. While many grocery stores offer curbside pick-up or delivery features, there are several that require a senior to show up in person. That is where Placita’s helping hands come in; our caregivers offer services to get seniors to where they need to go, eliminating the hassle of a family member having to rearrange their schedule. The same is true for doctor appointments. Our caregivers offer their services to not only get seniors to their physical therapy, checkups, and follow-ups, but we also offer companionship and empathetic support throughout the process.

Medication Management

Seniors often have chronic medical conditions and health problems that require numerous daily medications. These intricate health regimens can become overwhelming to manage alone. Placita’s caring specialists can offer assistance to minimize the complexity of medication needs, ensuring seniors take their doses without forgetting or becoming confused.

Personal Care & Hygiene

When a senior’s mental or physical health is compromised, it often begins affecting their ability to maintain their personal hygiene. Tasks that were once simple, such as brushing one’s teeth, bathing, or putting on clean clothes, may become tiresome, confusing, or forgotten. Personal hygiene is a fundamental component of overall wellbeing, which is why our caring professionals offer help to seniors in need with personal care and hygiene services. Our trained caregivers can assist with bathing and personal tasks in a dignified manner that allows a senior to get the hygiene attention they need without feeling shame or embarrassment.

Home Safety Evaluation

Placita In Home Care’s home safety evaluations are an excellent resource to ensure your home or your loved one’s home is hazard-free. Our care professionals will perform a thorough walk-through of your home, identify potential hazards, and suggest upgrades to improve the environment’s security. We can also offer an in-home care plan to satisfy housekeeping needs and personal tasks that may put a senior at risk if handled on their own.

Kind Companionship

Seniors often fall victim to the isolation and sadness that derives from limited mobility or lack of resources. When you opt for in-home care with Placita, we put an emphasis on ensuring our seniors get the companionship and kindness they desire to feel fulfilled and loved. Certain seniors may not need assistance with daily chores or personal care, but they may lack the companionship and socialization they once had in their younger days. Placita’s caregivers place a high value on providing loving companionship and empathy, curating activity plans or simply spending time with you or your loved one at home to fill the void of loneliness that comes with aging.

Support for the Family

Our home care services are not only geared to satisfy the assistance needs of the senior in need of care, but also to support the family in any way we can during this challenging time. For loved ones of terminally ill seniors, home care can work as additional support, as a caregiver will handle all the housekeeping needs and errands so the family can spend as much valuable quality time together as possible. For families of a senior who is not terminally ill, but requires assistance with certain tasks, our home care services can provide relief. It is strenuous to be the primary caregiver to a loved one, and you may find yourself neglecting aspects of your own life to ensure security and support for your loved one. Placita’s care specialists can allow family members to regain control of their schedules and lives.

Home Care Designed for You

Placita In Home Care’s comprehensive home care services are custom-tailored to suit the personal needs of each senior and family. Our approach eliminates the idea of one-size-fits-all when it comes to the evolving needs of a senior. When we curate a care plan, we ensure the best interests and specialized requirements of the individual are at the forefront of all we do.
