Frail Care needs rarely fit neatly into a pigeonhole
That’s why we tailor our services to your unique situation — and adjust as your needs evolve. We provide dependable, compassionate home care at all levels, including speciality care for those with Parkinson’s disease, arthritis or those with Alzheimer’s or other dementias. From brief check-in visits to round-the-clock care, we have you covered.
How do you know if you could benefit from in-home care? It might help to start by understanding the difference between medical and non-medical caregiving.
As we get older, some activities of daily living pose challenges that can have a negative effect on our quality of life. These challenges might be due to illness, injury of aging, and could require temporary or long-term assistance. At TruCare we offer a wide variety of frail care solutions to ensure that these challenges are dealt with effectively to enable you to age in place.
By teaming up with a personal assistant at the right time, the individual ensures independence, therefore adding quality of life. We all know how difficult it is when we realize we’re not as independent as we use to be, forgetting that with the right support, independence can be maintained and even restored.
What is Home Care?
In-home care focuses on helping seniors with the daily activities of living. These are tasks we all perform each day to stay healthy and engaged with life. For example:
- Companionship and Home Helper
- Meal preparation
- Medication Reminders
- Accompany to doctor visits
- Grocery shopping
- Laundry and linens
- Personal Services
- Incontinence Care
- Mobility Assistance
- Alzheimer’s or Other Dementias Care
- Managing behavioural symptoms
- Encouraging engagement
- Assist with activities of daily living
- Keeping seniors’ safe
- Transitional Care Services
- Hospital discharge assistance
- Hospice Support
- Supplemental support
- Respite for family caregivers
When a person becomes unable to perform these tasks, even temporarily, family members and non-medical caregivers can step in to help.
In-Home Care goes hand-in-hand with Home Health Care
If your loved one requires home health care, it may be a sign to seek non-medical home care, too. People who need visits from a home health nurse or physical therapist often have limitations that prevent them from bathing, cooking, driving and performing other routine tasks.
Here are a few examples of services provided by home health care professionals:
- Occupational Therapy
- Wound Care
- Mobility Training
- Pain Management
- IV Therapy/Injections
