Reliable Live-In Care Amarillo Seniors and Families Can Trust
“Home is where the heart is.” That old saying holds true for most of us, and perhaps even more so for seniors. Home is more than just a place—it offers sanctuary and refuge from the outside world and provides a sense of independence, security, and comfort that’s hard to find anywhere else. As they age, most seniors want to stay in their homes—surrounded by familiar sights, sounds, and smells and beloved mementos, pets, and neighbors—following the well-established favorite routines they’ve become accustomed to over many years. Living at home can help seniors stave off loneliness, depression, and anxiety in their golden years.
Many seniors want to preserve their independence but need help maintaining their health and safety, and living alone is no longer the best option for them. Memory lapses may cause them to forget to take medication or skip meals. Mobility issues might make it difficult to navigate around the house without falling. Some seniors experience cognitive disorders such as dementia and Alzheimer’s or serious illnesses such as strokes and cancer that make it more challenging for them to sustain a high quality of life on their own. For these older adults, live-in home care is an ideal solution.
Home Care Assistance of Amarillo, TX, is here to help. We’ll work with you and your loved one to create a customized live-in care plan that’s just right for his or her needs.
Highly Trained, Compassionate Live-In Caregivers
Our dedicated, compassionate live-in caregivers are carefully selected and complete rigorous and ongoing training. Examples of how they assist seniors in meeting their basic daily needs include:
- Transportation to medical appointments
- Prescription pickup and medication reminders
- Light housekeeping, laundry, and changing bed linens
- Grocery shopping and cooking
- Personal grooming, bathing, and dressing
- Exercise and physical assistance
We also understand how important social and emotional needs are, and conversation and companionship are key components of our live-in caregiving. We carefully match our caregivers with our clients based on personality traits, hobbies, and interests. Talking about favorite books, playing a game of gin rummy, or completing a jigsaw puzzle with another person provides the type of vital social interaction seniors need to maintain a positive outlook and fortify their mental and emotional health.
Live-In Care Using a Holistic Approach That Helps Seniors Thrive
At Home Care Assistance Amarillo, we take a holistic approach to caregiving. Our dedication goes beyond helping seniors meet their basic needs: our goal is to enable seniors to thrive and enjoy their golden years as much as possible. All of our live-in caregivers are certified in two programs we’ve created:
- The Balanced Care Method (BCM) focuses on encouraging seniors to engage in mentally stimulating activities, eat well, exercise regularly, maintain strong social ties, and strive for a sense of calm and purpose.
- The Cognitive Therapeutics Method (CTM) is a brain health program that focuses on boosting memory and engaging other areas of cognitive function, including attention, language, and visual-spatial processing. This approach complements BCM’s emphasis on mental exercise, physical activity, social engagement, and diet.
