Some of the ways Always Best Care can help are fairly obvious. Some of the other things we do help in more subtle ways. This article will go over four ways that Always Best Care can help seniors in the Greater Richmond Area.
Always Best Care Senior Services
The seniors of the Greater Richmond Area are a diverse group. These seniors have different needs and different concerns and we at Always Best Care of Midlothian understand this. One set of services won’t do, that’s why a variety of different service packages are necessary. Always Best Care of Midlothian can help you or the senior in your life with the following services:
- Assisted living referrals: There are numerous high quality assisted living communities in the Greater Richmond Area. Assisted living communities are not the same as independent living/retirement communities or nursing homes; assisted living is a distinct class of senior care. Retirement communities are generally for seniors who don’t require personal care but who don’t want to worry about cleaning or landscaping. Nursing homes are intended to house seniors who require a high level of personal care and who can’t be expected to manage their own lives to any significant degree.Assisted living communities are a sort of middle ground. Assisted living offers all the care their residents need but don’t interfere in their lives any more than necessary. However, not every assisted living community is the right fit for every senior; each community is different. And this is where Always Best Care of Midlothian can help you. We will sit down with you and work out what’s most important for you and then refer you to the closest assisted living community that can fulfill your needs. Always Best Care offers these assisted living referrals at no cost to our clients.
- Home helper services: As excellent as the assisted living communities of the Greater Richmond Area are, many seniors would prefer to remain living in their own homes. Some seniors are encouraged to move into assisted living communities not because they can’t take care of themselves but because they struggle to take care of their homes. Luckily, Always Best Care of Midlothian offers home helper services to help these seniors with a number of different chores from laundry, to grocery shopping, to meal preparation, and more. Home helper services allow seniors to remain in their Greater Richmond Area homes for as long as they want.
- Companionship services: Many seniors are physically healthy but are isolated, lonely, and/or depressed. Companionship services help seniors with their emotional and mental wellbeing by giving them somebody to talk to. This keeps seniors connected to the outside world and provides a good insight into their mental health.
- Personal care services: Personal care services can cover anything from help getting in and out of bed or wheelchairs, help with grooming, bathing, and eating, as well as assistance with toileting and incontinence issues.
