Even with senior hours in place at many stores, it’s best for elderly loved ones to stay at home as often as possible to reduce the risk of transmission during the coronavirus pandemic. Seniors should be extremely cautious when going out in public since data indicates that people over 60, and those who are immunocompromised, are the most at risk for severe illness.
Fortunately, there are measures family members can take to keep older adults safe at home during the crisis, while still getting them the meals, care, and companionship they need. Home care service from reliable caregivers is often a perfect way to make sure an elderly loved one gets the care they need while staying safe at home. Below are a few of the home care services we offer intended to help aging loved ones.
It’s been pointed out that everyone is safest at home during the pandemic and seniors are no exception. Homemaking services for an older loved one will ensure they get the help they need around the house to be comfortable. Homemaking care services can help with household tasks such as laundry, grocery shopping, transportation to doctor’s appointments, light housekeeping, and meal preparation.
Social distancing to stay safe can also lead to feelings of loneliness or isolation for many older adults. The uncertainty of the pandemic can make these feelings become even more magnified so having someone to talk to is more important than ever. Companion care services will give an older loved one someone to engage with and help in case they need support.
You can be sure a senior loved one has the care they need with live-in 24/7 care from Griswold Home Care. An experienced caregiver will be on hand at all times to help provide constant assistance if needed. Live-in caregivers can help with spontaneous needs as well as things like bathing, restroom assistance, skin care, active range-of-motion assistance, dressing and grooming, personal hygiene, and more.
