What is Senior Care?
As people age, many maintain the desire to remain living in their own homes for as long as possible. The comfort and familiarity that our homes provide to us is what makes remaining in our homes as we age a priority for countless American seniors. Recognizing this lifestyle priority is what has allowed Ally Independence the ability to provide exceptional and compassionate senior care, otherwise known as in-home care. In home care is non-medical care provided by caregivers in a client’s own home. At Ally Independence, our caregivers are all Certified Nursing Assistants who understand the aging process and how to best help seniors remain living in their homes. There are variety of senior care services that encompass in-home care, ranging from personal and companion care to specialized care services.
With in-home care, caregivers aid with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) and Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs). ADLs are basic, routine, day-to-day task essential for everyday functioning. These tasks include bathing, dressing, eating, transferring, continence, and toileting. Many seniors are very independent but need aid with one or two of these tasks. IADLs are more complex tasks that require organizational skills, sound reasoning and judgement. These tasks include meal preparation, shopping, maintaining finances, using transportation, housekeeping, laundry, managing medication (taking the proper dose on time). A large number of seniors require assistance with IADLs rather than ADLs as they age. Each individual has unique needs and wants when it comes to the ability of performing IADLs. Some people may just want someone by their side for support as they perform the these livings tasks, while others need caregivers to perform the task for them. At Ally Independence, we offer senior care services to address all the needs of our clients.
In addition to offering assistance with ADLs and IADLs, in-home care also includes specialized senior care services such as respite care, memory care, end-of-life care, and assistance transitioning home from hospital or facility. Whatever type of care is needed, Ally Independence caregivers are able to provide assistance from as little as one afternoon a week to 24 hours a day, seven days a week, all dependent upon the needs of the individual. Most importantly, however, is that in-home care allows seniors and other to remain living in their own home, surrounded by the comforts of their own lives.
