Your Partner in Successful Aging At Home
Whether you’re an older adult, someone with a disability or you’re caring for someone that’s aging or has a disability, life can be complicated. Millions of people are in this situation and it takes a huge toll on work life, family life, and life in general. Every situation is a bit different, but a lot of the byproducts are the same: emotional and physical exhaustion, frustration, and a sense of helplessness.
At Rhythms Home Care, we believe in creating support around each individual to help keep older adults in their homes longer successfully. Because each client is unique to us, we specialize in crafting customized care plans ranging from 4 to 24-hour support, ensuring that each client remains independent in the comfort of their own home. Our care partners create deep relationships and focus on what’s important to you and your family. Enjoy the reassurance that comes with knowing we provide caring, compassionate and consistent senior home care, while helping keep familiar family roles balanced and flourishing.
For many families and situations, home health care is a beneficial choice—a safe and affordable solution that supports the family, while allowing your loved ones to stay in the comfort of their own homes and communities and boost your and your loved one’s quality of life.
Older adults that need help but are still self reliant
It’s hard to experience that your parents aren’t as spry as they once were, but your parents or loved ones are in good company. The fact is, approximately 10,000 people each day retire at 65, but it doesn’t make it any easier when you begin to notice a change. Sometimes the signs are subtle with things they can’t seem to do anymore, like climb stairs or keep up with the grandkids. Sometimes the signs are more drastic with a fall or illness they don’t quite recover from completely. Either way, most seniors vastly prefer aging in place to facility care, even in cases where physical or cognitive decline makes it difficult to live independently. According to one AARP survey, roughly 90% of American seniors wish to live at home for as long as possible.
Many older adults are able to be self sufficient but may need support with daily activities such as:
- Personal hygiene needs including bathing, dressing and grooming
- Light housekeeping including linen changes, taking out trash, tidying and more
- Laundry tasks such as washing, drying and folding
- Meal preparation including planning, preparing and/or helping to prepare meals
- Transportation for picking up prescriptions, shopping, social visits and more
Home health care is often more budget friendly than assisted living or other inpatient options and can help people stay healthy longer by feeling more independent and connected to their home and community. At Rhythms Home Care, our highly trained senior care partners value relationships by focusing on what’s important to you and your family to provide all the support needed including peace of mind.
Older adults who live alone and need companionship
Aging can be a challenging time of life that can leave older adults feeling isolated and lonely. Family members and friends do as much as possible, but they have lives and obligations such as kids, jobs and their own mental and physical wellbeing to consider.
An in-home care provider can be a positive relationship and one that, as many home health caregivers will tell you, is completely reciprocal. Research shows that aging adults stay healthier with social interaction. Home health aides can become trusted friends for walks, reading, cards, games, movies, meals, and other social activities. Accompaniment on errands such as grocery shopping, medical appointments, and other activities are also added benefits.
The home health caregivers at Rhythms can help you or your loved one reach a higher level of wellness while supporting your ideal lifestyle. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that you’ll be able to get assistance when you need it. This can be as much of a relief for family members as any other service.
Home care is a winning solution for recovering at home after surgery
Home health is an often overlooked solution to recovering from an injury or illness rather than a rehab facility or other in-patience setting. Home healthcare is notable because of its cost-cutting benefits. It is less expensive to receive home-based care than it is to receive inpatient care or recover in a skilled nursing facility. In addition, home-based healthcare has a natural convenience factor. Receiving medical care inside the home cuts out many of the transportation barriers associated with healthcare access. And while most patients appreciate convenient care access, it’s particularly beneficial for sick or injured patients. Patients receiving home-based with a rehabilitative care plan are also more likely to complete their physical therapy activities. With our assistance they have better clinical outcomes down the road.
Home health workers are uniquely capable of providing older adults the care they need while still allowing them to stay in the home they love. At Rhythms, with more than 25 years of experience, we are a mission-driven care partner who puts you or your loved one first. Using home health care can give you the peace of mind knowing your loved ones are taken care of if you can’t do it yourself.
