About Our Elder Care Services
Many families considering elder care for the first time wonder about the scope of assistance that can be provided. At Interim HealthCare of Albany, we strive to provide a comprehensive service offering that can meet a wide range of needs.
While our services are typically grouped in to three main categories, home health, personal care, and respite care, we can work with you to incorporate care from all of these areas to ensure your loved one has the help and support they require.
Let's take a closer look at the categories of elder care we offer:
- Personal Care and Support. This type of elder care is the most broad ranging type of service we offer. Personal care and support provides assistance with daily activities including meal preparation, medication reminders, housekeeping assistance, bathing, dressing, transferring assistance, and so much more. For many seniors, the companionship provided by our caregivers is one of the biggest benefits of our personal care and support. Friendly conversation, someone to help them run errands, or simply chat with over a meal is a welcome benefit of our care.
- Home Health. When recovering from illness, injury, or hospital stay, seniors recuperate faster at home. Our home health services are provided by trained professionals who can make sure your loved one has the support they need during recovery. Our home health services often include infusion therapy and wound care services.
- Respite Care. For family caregivers, the stress of caring for a loved one while balancing a job, raising their own children, and other responsibilities can quickly become overwhelming. Respite care provides a chance for the family caregiver to take a break. Our team of caregivers will provide support while you take time to attend to your many other responsibilities. Respite care is a valuable resource that allows you to refresh and provide more focused care on your return home.
