How Home Helpers® Home Care Can Help Reduce Hospitalizations Among Seniors

While it’s impossible to completely avoid hospitalizations among seniors, in-Home Care can help reduce the likelihood of preventable hospitalizations by improving seniors’ overall quality of life and health.

According to the Association of Health Care Journalists, Medicare recipients enrolled in a clinical home visit program between 2008 and 2012 had 14 percent fewer hospital admissions and a lower risk of admission to nursing homes over the 12 months after they were evaluated, when compared to other Medicare recipients enrolled in traditional fee-for-service health programs.

Home Helpers Provides Custom Plans to Best Meet the Needs of Your Loved One

Care and Companionship

Home Helpers specializes in two distinct types of care:

  • Companion Care. Seniors’ mental health is just as important as their physical. And when they spend time alone or are isolated from others, their mental health can begin to suffer. From light housework and preparing meals to playing board games, Companion Care can help your loved one best enjoy their time at home.
  • Personal Care. Getting in and out of bed or using the bathroom can be difficult for seniors who need help getting to their feet. Personalized Care can help improve your loved one’s hygiene by ensuring they bathe regularly, change their clothes, and use the bathroom whenever they need.

Specialized Care

Seniors living with chronic conditions, like Alzheimer’s and Dementia, Parkinson's, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and other developmental disabilities require specialized, often round-the-clock care. Our Caregivers are uniquely suited and specially certified to care for different conditions.

24-Hour Monitoring

It’s hard for anyone not to worry about their loved one when they’re left alone at home, even if it’s just for a few hours. But with 24-hour monitoring, seniors have access to help even when you can’t be there. Home Helpers provides:

  • Vital Signs Monitoring
  • Around-the-Clock Assistance
  • Emergency Care Buttons

Meals and Nutrition Planning

A well-balanced diet, complete with good meals, is integral to a long and healthy life. Unfortunately, as seniors age, many no longer drive or can’t stand long enough to cook; which is why seniors often suffer from poor nutrition. Home Helpers creates meal plans specifically designed for clients with chronic health conditions.
