Who can Benefit from Retire-At-Home Care?

When you think of a professional home care agency like Retire-At-Home Services, you may think that it is only available for seniors? Guess again!

While older adults certainly make up a substantial portion of the beneficiaries of home care, there are many other situations where home care can be extremely useful.

For example, Retire-At-Home care services can also be helpful for:

  • Accident and injury recovery
  • Surgery recovery
  • Hospital discharge
  • Treatment for illness and disease
  • Palliative care
  • Personal care and Home Support
  • Long term companion care

Accident and Injury Recovery

Regardless of age, it can be a difficult task to recover from a car accident or personal injury.

It can be a long road to getting back to regular routines and having an experienced caregiver come to your home to aid in that recovery can make a huge difference.

Having a professional and experienced caregiver come to your home to aid in that recovery can make a huge difference.

Surgery Recovery

The rehabilitation after a knee or hip surgery can leave you immobile for an extended period of time.

Retire-At-Home caregivers can assist with rehab exercises, as well as with daily chores and activities.

Hospital Discharge

For both of the above situations, it is a good idea to have some assistance to help make the transition from the hospital back home as smooth as possible.

Even a small interruption in care can result in major setbacks.

Having assistance with planning the release from hospital, arranging transportation, and getting the home prepared for the recovery process can really limit complications to focus on healing.

Another prime use of home care services may be for recovering from surgery or another medical procedure.

The team at Retire-At-Home Services have nurses and PSWs that are trained to support you in your journey.

Some examples may be:

  • Alzheimer’s and dementia
  • Parkinson’s
  • Stroke
  • Cancer

For help in the home and assistance to help manage the unfavourable symptoms of the illness, services can help improve the quality of daily life for all involved.

Palliative Care

For those diagnosed with chronic or terminal illness, there are home care services available to help manage pain and assist the family with whatever is needed.

Many families find that experienced and compassionate caregivers can be a tremendous support system in these difficult times.

Personal Care and Home Support

Caregivers can assist with maintaining personal hygiene such as assistance with getting dressed in the morning or bathing assistance. 
Families with a new baby in the house may benefit from a little help around the house with household chores, meal preparation, laundry assistance and re-establishing routines.

Long Term Companion Care

Social isolation can also be a real problem for some people, whatever age they may be. As we get older, it seems harder to keep up social relationships on a regular basis.

A Retire-At-Home companion caregiver can offer companionship, and at the same time unwavering support.

Companion caregivers can engage in stimulating games, fun activities, and interesting conversation for as long as needed, on an ongoing basis.
