More and more adults are faced with the challenge of caring for aging parents or other loved ones that need assistance and most are not prepared for the physical and emotional challenges this could entail. Caregiving can be stressful and overwhelming, but Queen City Private Duty Care can help.
Private duty in-home care can include anything from companionship care, such as grocery shopping and meal preparation to personal care, such as bathing and toileting. We are available as much or as little as you need us; whether it’s a few hours a week, a few hours a day or full time support.
Our goal at Queen City Elder Care is to provide first class personalized service for seniors and other individuals needing assistance so they can remain comfortable and independent at home.
What is Companionship Care?
When your parent or loved one first starts showing signs that they need assistance, companionship care is a good place to start and can provide the basic support to help your parent or loved one remain independent.
Companionship care can help with tasks such as the following:
- Meal preparation
- Medication reminders
- Walking and feeding the dog
- Light housekeeping/Laundry
- Taking your loved one to appointments or social outings
- Taking your loved one to his or her doctor
- Running errands
- Engaging your loved one in Therapeutic Activities
- Organizing and maintaining a calendar of events and appointments
- Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care
Companionship care provides valuable social benefits, decreasing isolation and improving quality of life.
What is Personal Care?
Personal care includes more hands-on assistance with tasks that include the following:
- Incontinence Care
A personal care assistant can often enable a parent or loved one to stay in their own home rather than having to move to an assisted living facility or nursing home. Personal care assistants can also help with any task that falls under Companionship Care.
What is Respite Care?
Many times when individuals are caring for a parent or loved one, they neglect to take care of themselves and experts agree that this can take a significant toll on their physical and emotional health. If you are personally caring for your loved one, we can provide respite care so that you can have a chance to get some much-needed rest and recharge your batteries. We’ll provide the companionship for your parent or loved one while you enjoy some of your favorite activities. Taking a break for a few hours here and there can make a huge difference in your week!
- Meet a friend for lunch or coffee
- Eat dinner out
- Go golfing or fishing
- Take a hike or bike ride
- Play tennis
- Participate in a favorite volunteer activity
- Attend a play
