Today, the elderly and chronically disabled have an alternative to nursing home residency. Approximately 80% of long term care is provided by family or friends at home. This increased need can often profoundly impact families as they struggle to provide care for a loved one as well as fulfilling their obligations to family, employers and themselves.
Home caregivers assist with daily living activities as well as laundry, linens, light housekeeping, meal preparation and errands. They work as little as one hour to provide personal care services. They can also provide respite care for adult children who are taking care of a relative at home and may need a break or vacation.
Live-in caregivers provide continual assistance throughout the day. Their presence helps to relieve fear and loneliness which often leads to depression. These special individuals are professional and committed to the needs of their clients.
With proper assistance, seniors and the chronically ill can remain in their homes where they can continue to lead productive and fulfilling lives.
South Jersey Home Care is here to assist this very important segment of our community to live with dignity and peace of mind.
