When it comes to home care, there are many misconceptions as to what it really is and when it's needed. So to clarify why home care might be the right option for your loved one, let's look at what it entails.
1. Companion Care
Your loved one might not need care 24/7 but companion care can help reduce feelings of loneliness. Loneliness is a major cause of depression in the elderly and can even lead to dementia. Elderly care companies such as Care Champ, are committed to matching caregivers with patients based on backgrounds and common interests, thus, making it easier for them to connect.
2. Post Operative Care
Patients of all ages might need some special care at home when recovering from a big operation or an illness. Home caregivers can help with wound care as well as transporting them to and from the hospital for check-ups. To minimise complications after surgery and to support the recovery process, proper postoperative care is a necessity.
3. Child Care
Hiring an Au-pair might prove to be beneficial for your children since it enables you to concentrate your family's childcare needs around home-based care versus outsourcing to crèche or after-care facility. An au pair can be chosen with similar values to your family which will provide consistency in how you raise your children. They will also be able to assist with other duties such as grocery shopping, cooking and taking care of pets.
