What is Home Care/Home Care Myths
Home Care Service Provider in Ontario, Canada
Home care gives you an opportunity to live your life to the fullest at your own place and at your own pace.
A home care provider allows individuals with special needs to stay at their home while they receive individualized medical and non-medical care. The care recipients are mostly the aging population, the chronically ill, and those who are disabled or recovering from injuries. Home care services may include:
Assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADL)
Assistance with Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL)
Cooking or Meal Delivery
Contrary to what many people believe, home care is not only for the very ill but also for the healthy older adults who want assistance at home while they maintain their independence. It is also one of the most affordable specialized care options due to its flexibility of hourly service. Most of all, clients get the opportunity to take part in the decision-making process where they choose caregivers for themselves who will match their personal interests.
Myth: Home care workers abuse or steal from seniors.
Truth: There is no doubt that there are some unscrupulous caregivers out there and this, unfortunately, discredits the honest and caring ones. Please do not let yourself or your loved one suffer without help because of this. At Divine Favour Senior Homecare we take all necessary precautions to make sure that this does not happen. We start screening our staff at first contact, first impressions play a big role. Thereafter we do background and reference checks. To solidify their conduct and caring skills, we have well-designed training programs as elucidated on our staff/caregiver section on this site. These notwithstanding, we make sure no one is left behind by tracking their successful completion of all programs. In addition, all our caregivers are insured and bonded through our company while performing services in your home.
Myth: If I am using other care options, such as in a facility like a nursing home, assisted living or hospital, I, therefore, do not need the services of a home care agency.
Truth: At Divine Favour Senior Homecare, we are more than happy to supplement the care provided by facilities such as nursing homes, assisted living or hospitals on a one on one basis. Being beside someone in need at all seconds makes a huge difference. We will work compassionately and very closely with all those involved in your care like the doctors in charge, the staffs like nurses or social workers, to ensure you are receiving the utmost quality of care you deserve.
Myth: If I am not a senior i.e. 65 or older, home care isn’t for me.
