The need for home care is rapidly increasing every year. With an increasing aging population, the US is facing a need to allow the growing number of seniors age in place. In fact, the US will need an additional 2.3 million health care workers by 2025 to meet demand. This demand is mostly due to ‘Aging in Place’ where seniors spend their golden years in their home rather than an assisted living facility or another type of residential assisted care. Aging in Place, or AIP is preferred for many different reasons including comfort, affordability, and familiarity. We know how much it means for seniors to be able to AIP. We work with many seniors with different needs and abilities throughout Annandale, Kensington, Lanham, Arlington, Baltimore, and Washington DC.
However, home care does come with its own requirements. For one, adequate help must be available to assist residents with tasks they are not able to perform themselves. This can include:
- Daily tasks in the home
- Bathing, dressing & personal hygiene
- Grocery & other shopping
- Meal preparation
- Physical exercises & transfers
- Light household cleaning
Each one of these home care tasks can make the difference in a senior being able to comfortably AIP. While not quite medically necessary, these tasks can help prevent unhealthy and deteriorating conditions such as poor hygiene and skin conditions, malnutrition, dangerous living conditions, and more.
