Age can bring enormous daily challenges for older adults. Arthritis can get so bad that bathing or dressing without help becomes impossible. Fading eyesight can make it dangerous to drive to the grocery store or a doctor’s appointment. Relying on a cane, walker or wheelchair makes cleaning the house or cooking a meal a slow and painful ordeal.
It’s reassuring to know that our live in caregivers can make it possible for your aging parents to live as independently as possible in their own home. Whether your parent needs personal or memory care services, basic housekeeping or companionship or around the clock care, SYNERGY HomeCare will create a customized care plan for your loved one’s unique needs. We also recognize that your parents’ needs evolve over time, and we are here to reevaluate their needs every step of the way to maximize their freedom and quality of life.
You may be unaware of your aging loved one’s needs because senior parents often don’t want to complain or admit they can’t take care of themselves anymore. No one wants to lose their independence or become a burden to their children. Perhaps most of all, seniors want to live out their days where they feel most comfortable: in their own home.
We offer a range of services—from basic companionship to around the clock care—that makes it possible for seniors to remain in their own home for as long as possible. For example, some seniors only require assistance with certain activities of daily living, while others need live in home care. Your senior parent may require around-the-clock in-home nursing care if they are recovering from a sickness or illness, suffer from Alzheimer’s or dementia, have limited mobility or live far away from family and friends who could lend a hand.
SYNERGY HomeCare offers two types of live in elder care services.
Live in Care
If your elder needs considerable help on a “live-in” basis, SYNERGY HomeCare can provide a live in care provider to assist with all activities of daily living—cooking, light housekeeping, grocery shopping, errands, bathing, dressing, grooming and transportation. Our live in caregivers for seniors can reduce fall risk, offer emotional support and provide supervision. Live in caregivers spend the night in the elder’s home. They do sleep on the overnight shift, but are there to help the client at all hours.
24/7 Attentive Care
Some older adults need continuous care to remain in the comfort of their own homes. People requiring 24/7 attentive care may wake often, wander, suffer from dementia or have a chronic medical condition requiring continuous monitoring. For these seniors, SYNERGY HomeCare can provide two or three live in caregivers who work 8- or 12-hour shifts to ensure an elder’s needs are met at all times.
