Do You Need to Hire a Professional Caregiver?
Even if it is only for a couple of hours a day, it is important to bring a healthcare professional in to give you a hand in caring for your loved one. Plus, it is important to find a healthcare professional you can rely on just in case you run into a situation where you need extra help in any given week. Caregiving is a physically and psychologically straining task. Caregiving at home is a heavy burden for you, particularly for your elderly loved one.
At Accela Staff, we take the client’s own framework of values, preferences, and life outlook into account in planning and providing care. In response to constantly changing needs, we modify care goals and strategies. We allow full participation in care and a continuing sense of self-determination and self-control.
