Extra Assistance in Long-Term Care for Seniors in Waterloo Region
Long-term care facilities are often busy settings without enough nurses and staff available to give one-on-one support. With our supplemental care, your loved one will get the attention they truly need.
Better-Suited Care for Your Loved One Makes for a Healthier, Happier Experience
The support seniors receive in long-term care facilities is quite extensive. Care includes nursing, behavioural support, dietetics, and nutritional support, medical services, and social supports. However, long-term care facilities are increasingly busy with our aging population, and their staff may be overworked. Through Homeable, you can have independent, additional help for your loved one in a long-term care facility.
We work with your loved one to understand and cater to their specific needs. Residents in long-term care may already receive assistance with their basic needs, but many have needs that are left unacknowledged. We tend to the challenges that seniors experience and work to prevent the loneliness and isolation that commonly occur in long-term care.
How Does Homeable Go Above and Beyond Helping Seniors in Nursing Homes?
The government mandates minimum care standards that all long-term care facilities must follow. We outline these below and explain how the care we provide your loved one in a long-term care facility surpasses it.
- The Ontario government mandates that residents need to be bathed or showered at least twice a week. If this isn’t enough for your loved one, our staff will help with additional cleansing.
- Sometimes feeding, eating, and drinking can take a long time when there aren’t enough staff to help everyone at once. We can help so that patients eat meals more promptly.
- Burn-out among staff at nursing homes is high. This can negatively impact your loved one’s personal hygiene or other tasks that affect their well-being. Our care sets higher standards.
- In long-term care settings, companionship, socialization, and stimulation may be forgotten first. Homeable always makes time for social support.
