Senior Care at Home in Sonoma County

Our Senior Care Program Allows Seniors to Stay in Their Own Homes with The Independence and Dignity That They Deserve

As they get older, seniors will tell you that they want to stay at home rather than be confined to a rehabilitation center, nursing facility, or hospital. 

This is often referred to in the healthcare community as aging-in-place.

What is aging in place? It is a term used to describe a person living in their own home, or a home of their choice, for as long as they are able, as they age. It also means having any assistance or support services they might need over time as their needs change.
The goal is to provide the help and support an elderly person may need in their daily life, while maintaining their quality of life.
And quite often, this means in-home personal care and support.

What is Personal Care and Support from Interim HealthCare Santa Rosa?

In-home senior care is not a hospital or medical service. Instead, in-home personal care and support is a type of assisted living service that is focused on helping seniors living in their own homes.
This can mean help with daily living activities as well as providing companionship and even transportation when needed.
One of the many advantages of providing elderly home care for our Sonoma County seniors is that it can allow aging loved ones to remain in their own homes. And this can be far less disruptive to a senior's overall routine and sense of well-being.
However, many seniors typically need eldercare support for activities of daily living that many of us take for granted. These can include tasks such as:
  • Taking medications
  • Dressing or undressing
  • Shopping and preparing healthy and nutritious meals
  • General personal care, such as showering, grooming, etc.
That's why Interim HealthCare offers personalized Senior Care & Support Services in Santa Rosa, Rohnert Park, Petaluma, Windsor, Healdsburg, Sebastopol, Sonoma, and all throughout Sonoma County.
Our care professionals will ensure that your loved ones receive the care that they need to thrive in their daily lives.

How Senior Care at Home Can Benefit You or Your Loved One

For many of us, our image of at-home senior care brings to mind an elderly person who is infirm and unable to get around on their own. However, while this may sometimes be the case, more often than not, our aging seniors are quite capable and healthy. For many, they simply need some help for daily activities now and again.
What type of activities?
These can range from transportation to medical appointments to facilitating family visits, outings, and trips, to tasks around the home such as assisting with grocery shopping, meal planning and preparation, and even washing the dishes.
Another benefit of providing senior care at home is that our home care assistants can be there to help with more personal activities like getting dressed, grooming, bathing, personal hygiene, and incontinence care, and helping with medication.

How Personal Home Care Is Different from A Nursing Home

So, what makes personal home care different from moving your loved one into a nursing home? Perhaps the most obvious difference is that a senior must move from their home and into a nursing facility in order to benefit from those services.
Personal home care, on the other hand, allows an aging loved one to remain at home and receive in-home care and support periodically, as needed. This can range from an hour or so two or three times a week, to every day, if desired.
However, as a senior continues to age and as often happens, their need for assistance becomes more time-consuming; many families may feel that full-time care is needed and will opt for nursing home care because they offer so many services to residents.
Nursing home caregivers can assist residents with all of their daily activities, personal care needs, mobility issues, meals, cleaning, and even laundry. In addition, a nursing home can provide skilled medical care and therapy whenever it's needed.

Personal Care and Support from Interim HealthCare: The Interim Advantage

For families of aging loved ones - and those that are aging - one of the more sobering realities is that many daily tasks can become more difficult as time goes on. The good news, however, is that with the help provided by our trained home care assistants, seniors who choose to live at home can continue to function there in a secure and healthy environment.
Our personal care and support staff will ensure that your loved ones receive the care they need and deserve to thrive in their daily lives - and in their own homes.
While most in-home senior care providers may offer adequate elderly care support and other related services, there is much more that goes into quality elderly home care.
It is providing care at a deeper level.
We genuinely believe this, and that is why, at Interim HealthCare, we have always pursued a higher level of care, competence, and compassion in our service offerings and our company's culture.
While we understand that qualities such as empathy, caring, and understanding may not be measurable with an app or a checklist, we believe that they can make all the difference in the world for seniors who need care and support.
And for their loved ones.
What that means in practice is that, at Interim, we go well beyond simply offering basic personal care and support. For example, because we deeply care about and understand the stressful dynamics of being a family member caregiver, we provide comprehensive respite care services. In addition, we provide customized programs for Alzheimer's care and dementia.
