Through the years, you’ve been working hard to take care of yourself and your family. There is a sense of joy and pride that comes with caring for and providing those you love with everything needed to live comfortably, and doing so can be one of life’s greatest accomplishments. Yet, there may come a time when it becomes necessary for you to receive care that accommodates your own comfortable living. Perhaps this transition came gradually due to a medical condition or the effects of time on the human body. It may even have come about all at once due to injury or illness. Either way, going from complete independent living to requiring part-time, full-time or live-in care can be quite an adjustment, especially when you’ve always been the one who has taken care of yourself and others. Even more so, you might be apprehensive when relying on loved ones to assist with daily needs, especially when those needs are personal.
Preserving a sense of dignity can be difficult to maintain when relatives are called upon to provide consistent, daily care and you may be seeking aid for the more intimate routines you would rather keep separate from family. Whether you are seeking temporary care for only a short time or something more permanent, our team at Aqua Home Care is here to help find the services you need.
To help ease the stress of finding someone who will be there from the waking hours of the day to nightly routines or longer, we at Aqua Home Care make it our priority to find trusted, experienced caregivers. We match each individual with a professional, qualified in-home-care provider based on personality and personal needs. Your caregiver can help you complete the personal care routines you might not feel comfortable having a family member experience. Such care includes:
- Getting dressed and undressed
- Using the restroom
- Showering and bathing
- Other hygienic needs
Maintaining your sense of dignity, confidence and self-worth is essential when it comes to quality of life. If you have concerns with family members providing personal care and do not wish to leave your home to receive care, consider letting Aqua Home Care refer a competent, skilled and professional caregiver who will provide the support you are seeking within the comfort of your own home.
