What is In-Home Care?
Do you have a senior loved one who has trouble cleaning their home, going to medical appointments, or remembering to take their medication? Did you recently give birth or undergo a surgical procedure and need help with running errands or preparing meals? If this sounds like your situation, consider in-home care from J&M Homecare Services! We’ve been helping families in San Ramon, San Rafael, Stockton, and throughout the East Bay, North Bay, and Central Valley regions of California get the assistance and support they need right in their own homes since 2001.
Defining In-Home Care
In-home care is a type of service that is provided in the comfort of a person’s own home. It can include assistance with housekeeping, meal preparation, help with personal hygiene (such as bathing and getting dressed), help with running errands, transportation, and more. In-home care allows individuals to remain in their homes while receiving the necessary care they need. This type of care can be beneficial for those who are elderly and have age-related issues that make it difficult to live independently or for those who are temporarily or permanently disabled and unable to leave their homes for extended periods of time.
In-home care also provides support for family members who may not have the time or resources to provide adequate care for their loved ones. By seeking the help of professional caregivers with the necessary skills and training, in-home care can help individuals maintain their independence and quality of life.
When Should You Seek In-Home Care?
It’s not always immediately obvious when you or a loved one could benefit from some assistance around the house. However, waiting to arrange the right level of care can result in consequences such as missed appointments, physical injuries, and more.
Here are some signs that you or a loved one may need in-home care:
- Difficulty with daily activities such as bathing, dressing, and meal preparation.
- Trouble remembering to take medications or managing medical appointments.
- Difficulty with mobility or getting around the home safely.
- Changes in behavior or mood that indicate a need for assistance or supervision.
- Recent hospitalization or surgery that requires additional help at home for recovery.
- Lack of social interaction due to physical limitations or health issues.
- Needing transportation to medical appointments, grocery stores, social gatherings, etc.
