How Loving Home Care Can Help You With Respite Care:
At Loving Homecare Inc., we carry on the vision of our founder by combining a loving, caring environment with professional care services. We understand that having a caring partner in aging can bring one person and their whole network of loved ones a powerfully supporting experience. In the same way, we uphold this vision with our respite care services in Whittier by helping your loved ones with their recovery. We provide them with assistance to ensure that all their needs are taken care of.
We provide various services as part of our respite care Whitter services. The types of respite care we provide are the following:
Our respite care services in Whittier are of a high standard that the city’s seniors deserve. This is all the more crucial when you realize how staggering the readmission statistics for most seniors are. Therefore, we work carefully with your doctors to develop a plan that leads to optimal recovery. We take any instructions we are given very seriously as we consider your loved ones as one of our own. We support recovery from several conditions, including strokes, fractures, heart attacks, joint replacement surgery, and diabetes.
Medication is commonly assigned to seniors as part of recovery. It can be challenging for seniors to administer the medicine themselves and remember when to take them. This is especially the case when there are too many prescriptions. We can assist them in maintaining their medication schedule with on-time reminders. Alternatively, we can administer it with the correct dosages in cases where they cannot. If any side-effects occur, we provide them with immediate care. Rest assured, we will communicate such a situation to you immediately if it occurs.
Recovering senior patients typically struggle with keeping themselves clean due to limited mobility. It is highly likely they may need support going to the bathroom and may not be able to get out of bed in some cases. Our respite caregivers can help by guiding them towards the shower and providing standing support. If they cannot leave the bed, they can receive a sponge bath. After that, they can help them with dressing resulting in them feeling fresh and clean.
Recovering patients need to eat on time with healthy meals. Our respite care includes assistance with meal cooking and diet management. Our caregivers are trained to cook meals for specific diets and preferences. This ensures that your loved ones’ nutritional needs are fulfilled with their preferred meals. We provide varied meals to ensure eating does not become tedious while understanding the meals typically consumed by Whittier citizens. Our meals are healthy, ensuring an optimal diet during their in-home respite and recovery.
Toileting and incontinence care:
Recovering patients can find it extremely distressing when they cannot go to the toilet due to their conditions. This can result in involuntary messes that can further affect their confidence. On top of that, certain conditions or medication side effects can cause incontinence. Our caregivers are trained to help seniors with such problems throughout the day. This includes cleaning up messes that can occur.
Complete Recovery Support:
The seniors of Whittier are dear to us, and they deserve nothing less than comprehensive recovery support. Additionally, we can develop a plan tailored around you and your loved ones with minimum effect on your schedule. Whether you want our services for a few hours, full-time, or around the clock, we are here for you.
Family members typically experience anxiety when their loved ones can’t watch over them. This is where our respite care services come in by providing condition monitoring. Overnight observation is also available if your loved ones are in a particularly critical condition where they require around the clock monitoring. We provide regular health updates to family members for their ease during this time.
Our caregivers are trained to provide transportation services for Whittier citizens around the city. They will especially need this for any appointments regarding their progress. Loved ones may do this if they are free, but not when they have other crucial commitments. We understand and are here to help your loved ones by providing them with transportation anywhere they may need.
Recovering patients need a clean and safe environment to recover in peace. Our caregivers can help in providing them with such an environment by serving as house help. A hygienic and safe house can help seniors in many ways, ensuring that recovery is swift.
Exercising is crucial for any recovering patient as it helps them slowly get back to their feet. Staying active also helps seniors stay healthy. Loving Home Care Inc. has a dedicated team of caregivers who can support with exercise, stretching, and fitness therapy sessions.
Recovering patients may end up feeling depressed or lonely during recovery. This is because their loved ones may not be able to give them the attention they need resulting in them feeling isolated. Mental health is believed to be a factor that affects physical health, so staying motivated is crucial. To counter this loneliness, our caregivers can provide companionship services to recovering seniors. Feeling like someone is supporting them can help them heal faster.
