Having a disability doesn’t mean losing independence. Home care agencies can assist persons with disabilities of all ages, providing the care they need to remain safe and independent at home as opposed to moving to a care facility. The following are a few ways AAging Better In-Home Care can assist. Home Modifications Simple home modifications such as grab bars in the bathroom or more complex modifications such as lowering bathroom and kitchen counters for better wheelchair access can make daily activities safer as well as more comfortable. We can help coordinate finding the right contractors and companies offering these kinds of services. Connections to Community Resources There are a number of local community services available in all five north Idaho counties that can make for a more successful in-home care experience. In addition to the typically requested in-home care services, AAging Better In-Home Care can help identify, locate and coordinate as many of these options as desired. Care Education With their wealth of caregiving experience, our in-home caregivers can improve health management through education, as well as assist with family involvement in the disabled loved one’s care. Exercise Exercise and activity are important for maintaining health. AAging Better In-Home Care can coordinate with the client’s physician or physical therapy department and help implement recommended exercise and activity plans. Meals Our in-home caregivers can shop for and prepare nutritious and tasty meals for the client, while helping educate on how to maintain a healthy diet.
