Elder care services are designed to help fulfill the special needs and requirements that are unique for elders and encompass a variety of senior care services such as assisted living, adult day care, long term care, nursing homes, hospice care, or in home care.
Elder care services place emphasis on the social and personal requirements of elders who will require assistance with a variety of daily activities and health care, but who commonly desire to age with dignity. Most elders that live in the United States prefer to continue living at home and receiving in home care, however the majority of elders will gradually lose functioning ability and will be required to move into an elderly care home, so they can receive around-the-clock assistance from caregivers with everyday activities and tasks.
For patients that wish to remain in their homes longer and receive in home elder care services by skilled caregivers, they can opt for respite care, which allows caregivers the opportunity to go on vacation, business trips, or other commitments and know that their loved one will receive quality elder care.
Family is often the most important elder care provider for their loved one in need, however the assistance of skilled caregivers and home health aides is often suggested to help aide families and their elders during their time of care.
