Should you consider home health in Phoenix?
In-home care is a rapidly growing industry throughout the United States. While assisted living facilities and nursing homes are a fantastic option for many people, they certainly aren’t for everybody. Some people function better in their own home where they are comfortable and will be less likely to decline quickly if allowed to stay there. But that doesn’t mean it’s safe to leave them alone. That’s where Adultcare Assistance Homecare comes in. We provide home health in Phoenix by working with medical professionals to help your loved one feel safe, secure, and happy with their life.
Are home care and home health the same?
While they have similar names, home care and home health have important differences. Home care is non-medical in-home care and includes things such as bathing, meal preparation, light housekeeping, and basic hygiene. Home health care, on the other hand, includes medical care from trained professionals that assist the caregivers by providing medical procedures that only they are licensed to perform. Some specialists we work with include experts in dementia, physical therapy, and nutrition, and our caregivers assist them by informing them of patient changes in health, habits, and behaviors which these experts use to provide the best possible treatment.
We start with a detailed care plan
Each person has different things they need and different ways that they are independent. Some of the areas are care plans take note of include:
- Eating habits. Some people we care for are picky eaters that need to eat more, and others are eating a little too much to be healthy. Our caregivers keep track of this by noting favorite foods, calories, blood sugar, and more.
- Sleeping habits. It’s not uncommon for someone to get up once or twice a night to use the bathroom. But when it happens every hour, it may be cause for concern. We take note of these things and relay them to health professionals.
- ADLs. One of the most important parts of care that are sometimes overlooked are the activities of daily living. These basic aspects of life are sometimes the hinging factor between someone having a high and low quality of life.
