You may be debating the benefits of home health care versus an assisted living facility or convalescent hospital in Palm Beach, FL. One of the main differences is that with home health care your loved one is receiving one-on-one attention. We are not saying that your loved one will receive poor care in one of these facilities, but it is impossible for them to receive the one-on-one attention they will receive with a personal caregiver.
The Caregiver Can Devote Their Focus to One Patient
In a facility setting, the caregivers have multiple patients for which they are responsible. While they may be giving outstanding care, their time and attention are divided. With a personal caregiver, their only patient during the time they are at your senior loved one’s home is your loved one! Nobody else can call for a nurse or interrupt with a question. Their attention is solely on your loved one and their needs.
Isn’t that exactly what you want for your loved one? If you can’t be there, the next best thing is to have one person who has nothing else to do on their checklist other than to meet your loved one’s needs! It helps to ensure a high quality of care.
Home Care Allows for Individualized Health Plans
At Champion Home Health Care our staff is highly trained and specifically assigned to each patient based on the patient’s needs and the staff member’s specific training. For example, we do have both Licensed Practical Nurses and Registered Nurses on staff to meet the needs of those clients who have medical issues or need medications administered. Our nurses are also an excellent choice if a loved one doesn’t necessarily need ongoing care, but does need care during their recovery from a surgical procedure. They are also an excellent choice to accompany your loved one to medical appointments. They can help navigate the medical system for your loved one and ask appropriate questions that your loved one may not know to ask.
Senior Helpers Provide Peace of Mind
Our non-nursing staff is also trained in CPR and first aid. We also provide training for our caregivers regarding memory loss/dementia/Alzheimer’s. If your elderly loved one is becoming forgetful or has already been diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s, then our staff of caregivers is trained to care for them. If you do not live in the home with your loved one, we encourage you to set up regular meetings with your caregiver or one of our managers so you can ask as many questions as you need to feel comfortable with the care your loved one is receiving. We want you to have peace of mind that they are in the best possible hands with our home health care workers.
