How Can Your Aging Loved One Benefit From a Home Health Aid?

Watching a loved one deteriorate due to aging can be difficult. We try our best to care for our loved ones, but often our jobs, our own children, and our marriages prevent us from being there for our elderly loved ones as much as we would prefer. We shudder to think about sending our loved ones to a long-term care facility, preferring instead to keep our loved ones at home as long as possible. Most elderly people only require minor assistance, especially those with a close network of family and friends. Many elderly people prefer to stay in their own homes, but maintaining independence can be a struggle for some seniors.

Home Care Providers can provide the answer to this problem. At Home Health Services provides Michigan residents with health services at home. We are a Medicare certified skilled home health care agency that provides comprehensive health care to your loved ones in the privacy and convenience of their own home. We provide the following services:

  • Dietitian Home Health Aide
  • Medical Social Work
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Physical Therapy
  • Skilled Nursing
  • Speech Therapy

Our home health aides can help your aging loved one benefit from a home health aid in a variety of ways, all of which will help your loved one stay put at home. Our home health aides will help by assisting with your loved ones hygiene, including hair care and bathing, as well as preparing meals, laundry, and food shopping tasks. Many loved ones fall and hurt themselves by doing common household tasks, but with home health care these injuries can be avoided entirely. Many elderly people also injure themselves by lifting things that they should not be lifting, such as grocery bags. You can plan the activities that the home health care aide does along with your loved ones nurse and therapist.

Your loved one may also have special medical needs, and might need to be attended to by medical professionals such as a nurse. Health services at home can fulfill this need. At Home Health Services can provide any medically needed nursing care to keep your loved on home where they belong, whether your loved one needs a nurse, speech therapist or a physical therapist we can help. As one of the leading home care services for seniors in Michigan, we are committed to excellence, and committed to your loved ones needs.
