Which Form of Home Care is Right for You?

There are numerous forms of home care available to seniors living in the Albuquerque area of New Mexico; find out which one is right for you.

Home Care In Albuquerque, NM

Whether you live in Albuquerque itself, or somewhere nearby like Rio Rancho, you can receive home care. Home care involves a caregiver visiting you in your home and providing care. This is one of the two principal ways that elderly New Mexicans and those living with disabilities can receive care.

The other way is in a care facility. Long-term care communities such as nursing homes, memory care homes, and assisted living communities are excellent places for some seniors. Always Best Care of Albuquerque offers assisted living placement consultations to help you discover the best community for you. But it’s possible that none of the communities in the Albuquerque area are right for you. Maybe you love your Albuquerque or Rio Rancho home and don’t want to move out. Or maybe you don’t want to pay the rent and fees that senior care communities charge. Whatever your reason, there are three types of home care available to you.

Personal Home Care

Personal care helps seniors with the activities of daily living. These are acts of self-care we all do weekly, daily, and multiple times a day. Caregivers can visit seniors in their Albuquerque-area homes and help them get in and out of bed, prepare and eat meals, brush their teeth or take care of their dentures, use the toilet, and more.

Companion Home Care

Mental health is as important as physical health. And seniors can face as many mental health challenges as they do physical challenges. Because some seniors don’t have many, if any, family and friends nearby in Albuquerque, they lead their lives in a kind of isolation. This can cause loneliness and depression.

Companion caregivers visit seniors in their Albuquerque homes and talk with them. They ask them how they’re feeling, keep an eye on their emotional wellbeing, play card or board games with them, and help them with correspondence. They can also accompany them to recreational events and appointments.

Home Helper Services

For many seniors, the biggest challenge they routinely face isn’t an obvious health challenge. It’s taking care of their Albuquerque-area homes. Housekeeping can be a lot of work and tasks like mopping floors and scrubbing stovetops can be really difficult for seniors. Home care can include home helper services. Caregivers can help with household chores and run errands for their clients.
