It can be difficult to watch your loved one face the various challenges that come with aging. If you are considering in-home care for your loved one, you may have many questions about the services. At Interim HealthCare of the Upstate, we offer a variety of senior care services in the Greenville, SC area and are happy to answer your questions.
What Does Senior Care in Greenville Entail?
As you begin this journey of finding care for your loved one, you may wonder what exactly senior care includes. We define senior care as any medical or non-medical services that are provided in the home for seniors.
Our non-medical service is known as personal care and support. It's designed to allow seniors to live comfortably in their daily lives at home. Our caregivers provide support and assistance with everyday tasks, including:
- Meal preparation
We also offer medical services with our home health care programs. Our trained health care professionals can provide a variety of services to your loved one as they remain in the comfort of their own home. We offer home infusion, wound care, and physical, occupational, and speech therapy. Additionally, we can help those living with chronic diseases, such as COPD, diabetes, and heart disease. We take an educational approach to our chronic disease management programs, assisting with treatment while educating your loved one about the disease.
Our hospice care program can also provide both medical and non-medical senior care. At Interim HealthCare of the Upstate, our nurses and caregivers are dedicated to providing the care and comfort your loved one needs in a respectful way.
