Did you know that two thirds of seniors need help doing one or more daily activities? Data collected as part of the National Health and Aging Trends Study reported that a majority of seniors require assistance with day-to-day tasks such as preparing meals, eating, bathing and dressing, laundry, or getting to and from the grocery store.
At Home Care Assistance of Palm Desert, we offer hourly care on an as-needed basis. Our hourly caregivers assist seniors with daily tasks in the comfort of home, and tailor care to their client’s individual needs to promote independence and safety. Unlike care at nursing homes or assisted living facilities, care is delivered on a one-to-one basis, there are no long-term contracts required, and you only pay for the hours a professional caregiver is present.
Our part-time caregivers are bonded, licensed, insured, and provided with advanced training in senior care so they can effectively meet the physical needs of older adults. However, what sets Home Care Assistance of Palm Desert apart from other home care agencies is our recognition of a person’s innate desire for socialization. Our part-time caregivers are companions to their senior clients and strive to form meaningful and genuine friendships. By encouraging social connections, our senior clients are rewarded with greater sense of self-esteem, confidence and purpose – feelings far too uncommon among the aging population.
Hourly or part-time home care isn’t just for seniors who need helping hand, it’s for their families, too. Many family members take on the role of caregiver for an aging parent or loved one while also juggling a job and their own family obligations. With the help of an hourly caregiver, family members can take respite from their caregiving job, attend to their own health, and enjoy time with their loved one as a loving daughter or son, not a caregiver.
Wouldn’t you feel better knowing that your mother, father or loved one had the help they needed?
