An assisted living community can be an option for seniors who want to remain independent while having professional assistance close by at all times. However, not every assisted living facility offers the same range of services, and some aging adults may need extra one-on-one care their facilities aren’t able to provide. In these cases, seniors can call on the professionals from Home Care Assistance to come in and provide additional high-quality compassionate care in the familiar surroundings of the communities they call home.
Our expertly trained, experienced caregivers understand the challenges of aging, and they have the expertise to help aging adults manage all aspects of everyday life in assisted living. Des Moines Home Care Assistance offers customized care plans that include:
At Des Moines Home Care Assistance, all our caregivers are trained in our Balanced Care Method. This holistic approach addresses every component of aging adults’ wellbeing—physical, emotional, and mental—by assisting with everyday activities such as preparing meals and exercising, providing mental stimulation and companionship, encouraging social engagement, and helping seniors maintain the level of independence that suits their abilities.
In addition to the Balanced Care Method, our specially trained caregivers are also instructed in our unique Cognitive Therapeutics Method (CTM), an activities-centered program designed to concentrate on memory, focus, cognitive abilities, verbal function, and visual-spatial perception. CTM works to encourage cognitive health, promote socialization, self-esteem, and a sense of achievement, reduce anxiety and fear, create a feeling of security through establishing routine, and enhance overall emotional wellbeing.
Companionship is a vital component of life for all of us, and seniors are no exception. That’s why we carefully match each client with a caregiver who has similar interests, personality characteristics, and life experiences. Chatting about favorite books, playing card games, or watching classic movies together offers benefits to both older adults and their caregivers. Casual, spontaneous social exchanges such as these help prevent loneliness and depression, and many of our clients and caregivers form strong bonds that develop into long-lasting friendships.
We know how much you want your loved one to be able to live in safety and comfort and with dignity. When you add one of our compassionate, highly trained caregivers to your caregiving team, you’ll rest easier knowing your loved one is well cared for. If your senior loved one is living in an assisted living facility and needs additional reliable, empathetic care, call on Home Care Assistance in Des Moines.
