Our bodies lose some of their motor abilities as we age. For others, it is caused by accidents. Still, others experience this loss as a natural part of aging. No matter what the cause, this loss necessitates personal care services, which are part and parcel of life in an assisted living facility in Miami.
Personal care services simply provide assistance to people in performing essential tasks that they cannot accomplish on their own. Personal hygiene falls under this category. People with limited mobility will definitely find it hard to take a bath on their own, for example. This is where personal care assistants come in to provide much-needed help.
Aside from personal hygiene, other tasks that could require personal care service include the following:
- Meal preparation
- Light housekeeping
- Medication reminders, especially for those with memory-related dementia like Alzheimer’s disease.
Family members typically take the role of personal care assistants if the client is aging in place. However, those who decide to age in senior living communities receive services from a highly trained and experienced staff of care specialists. This staff rotates on a daily to allow for some members to take a break. However, there’s always someone on the premises to provide for the needs of the residents.
All of our staff here at Loving Family Senior Care take pride in our ability to raise the quality of life of our residents. We do this with the utmost care and compassion. Call us now if you’re planning on assisted living in Miami, Florida for your beloved elders.
