A Look at Your Home Care Options in Philadelphia
If you are or have a loved one who is a senior in Philadelphia, you may be looking for home care services. Given the options out there, what is the best option for you? What is the difference between companion care vs personal care?
Both companion care and personal care are non-medical assistance services. Either one can be a valuable part of care and wellness for you or your loved one. Which you choose depends on what you need and what support you or your loved one already has at home.
Companion Care Services
Aging and disability can be a lonely road for the individual and their family. A companion caregiver provides emotional support and assists with everyday tasks that a senior may need. For families with seniors that have certain needs, a companion can be an invaluable resource, alleviating stress and leaving family members time to take care of all their responsibilities.
Some of the home care services our companion caregivers provide Philadelphia residents include,
- Housekeeping and chores
- Meal preparation
- Assistance with errands
- Transportation to and from appointments
- Transportation for social activities
- Communicating to family members
Our team of Angels will work with you to determine your specific needs and create a schedule for home care. They may visit daily, weekly, or multiple times a week, depending on your needs.
Personal Care Services
Where a companion caregiver focuses on the social and household aspects of life, a personal caregiver focuses on hygiene and other personal tasks. Due to the nature of personal care work, this type of caregiver will take extra time to get to know you and understand your likes, dislikes, and needs.
Some of the home care services our personal caregivers provide Philadelphia residents include,
- Bathing and showering
- Oral hygiene
- Assistance with lotion, haircare, etc
- Maintaining catheter bags
- Changing continence pads and cleanup
- Toilet assistance
Our Angels work with residents in Philadelphia and the surrounding area to determine the personal home care services they need. We will work with you to create a care schedule that helps you or your loved one live their best independent life.
