Senior Home Care: a New Avenue in Home Based Medical Provision

Senior home care has attained major significance from the perspective of modern nuclear family structures. This specialist service area involves a care provider who comes at the house of the affected family where a senior member is having some physical or mental ailments. The professional caregivers extend their service to look after the day-to-day activities of the elderly people under domestic set ups. It is imperative to say that the rate of the professional service varies as per level of the service provision as well as the training level of the caregiver.

It is quite uphill task to identify and hire top-grade medical care givers at home. People generally look for those nurses who possess multi-tasking capacity. However, not all of them are trained enough to carry out personal care activities of the elderly patient. So, it needs great focus and deep research into the profiles of the caregivers before selecting the most appropriate one.

One of the key tasks of the home based care providers is to assist the aged patient to perform his/her general home=-based activities, including bathing, eating, dressing, cooking and so on. Depending upon the physical condition, the elderly person is even assisted to perform some other domestic activities, such as managing the room and keeping it neat and clean. Since, old age is regarded as the ‘second childhood’ of a person’ he gets hurt when he is kept within the boundary of the home due to lack of companion to assist him in walking. The professional attendants appear as their benign angels when they take them out on strolls.

There is no denying the fact that the insurance companies bear a portion of the total cost involved in arranging elderly home care facilities. However, the amount depends upon the physical condition of the patient as well as the type of service availed in this regard. The insurance coverage is based on proper medical diagnosis. So, it needs to be ensured that the family members of the elderly patient avails proper medical records regarding the details of the ailments and the treatment or care provided thereafter.

It is to be accepted that senior home care is the best solution for majority of the families to relocate the senior ailing person to a costly medical center, such as nursing home, old age home or other long-term care centers. The home based service provision is not only cost-effective but also quite effective in protecting the cheerful spirit of the patient.

Home-based care provisions for the elders are simply great in their own merit. It has positive psychological aspects too. Most people want to live in their own homes till their last breath. Moreover, it becomes quite difficult for elders to relocate to new residential zones and make new associations. Since, professional senior home care service looks after all the requirements of the elderly people, one can easily avail this service at home. No doubt, medical support for the elders has gained momentum through quality senior care facilities at home.
