McCortney Family In-Home Care News


What are in-home care services?

It’s always hard to totally define what “in-home care services” are.  Every patient is client is different.  Every family has different needs.  The list of things that our caregivers can help you with seems unending.  Clearly, our company website had tried to define what family home care is and looks like, but it never hurts to let others try to help.  With that in mind, here are two different paragraphs from a blog post that seem to define it decently.

First, family in-home care for those with a short-term disability:

The circumstances that make in-home care necessary are as varied as the types of care someone may need. In-home care is available for people with long or short-term disabilities. Following an injury, heart attack or surgery, most people are eager to return home. Having in-home care enables them to achieve their goal more quickly. Recovering from a stroke can be a lengthy process. Receiving personal care, therapy and help with household chores makes it possible for someone to return to familiar surroundings during the extensive rehabilitation process.

Second, caregiving for those with Alzheimer’s or dementia:

Alzheimer's and dementia are progressive diseases that must be managed accordingly. When you begin to notice signs that indicate your loved one is not eating properly, can't manage their medication schedule, are not taking care of themselves or the house as they once did and their forgetfulness raises concerns, it is time to get some in-home help for them. Scheduling an in-home consultation is a good place to start. Trained professionals can evaluate your specific situation and offer a personalized plan that will address your loved one current needs. As time goes by, this plan can be adjusted to accommodate the changes in your loved one's situation.

I hope those help you understand some of the types of care that we can provider for you, your parents, or a loved one.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

"McCortney Family In-Home Care provides us with 6 hours each week of Respite Care so that I may do errands that take me out of our home and my presence away from my ill husband. The aides who visit us during those hours do housework (that's a big plus!). They mainly visit with my husband and tend to his needs in a professional manner, so I recommend this company to anyone who needs their services."
