What is personal care?
Personal care is defined as a special combination of housing, support services, individual care and health care designed to meet specific needs. Personal care allows individuals who can no longer remain in their own home, but who aren’t yet in need of a nursing home, a lifestyle that promotes dignity, independence and self-esteem.
When is the right time to consider a personal care facility?
Since every individual is different, there really is no right or wrong time to consider a personal care home setting. The ultimate decision on when to make such a move should be based on several factors, taking your safety and health into primary consideration. But, the ability to maintain one’s independence should not be overlooked either. To aid you in this important decision, we have devised the following personal care checklist. If you or your loved one finds yourself nodding in agreement to two or more of these statements, then now might be an opportune time to check into personal care services:
- Making things easier for me makes sense.
- Sometimes I get frustrated with my limitations.
It takes me longer to get ready each morning and it’s a little harder than it used to be.
- Taking care of my home and yard are too much for me.
- I probably shouldn’t drive, but I don’t want to burden anyone.
- My family and friends worry about my safety and living alone.
