It can be difficult when a family member becomes unable to take care of his daily needs. Perhaps your grandmother or your father, a beloved aunt or even your own spouse is no longer able to manage dressing himself each day because of physical limitations. Your mother might need a reminder to take necessary medications at scheduled times each day. If your spouse has had surgery and needs wound care on a regular basis, you may not feel comfortable handling that aspect of his care. At these times, when it becomes just to difficult to care for your loved one in her home, it’s time to consider assisted living arrangements.
Senior Home Care in Bettendorf IA offered by The Fountains Senior Living Community can provide needed services. Assisted living arrangements can meet so many of the problems your elderly loved one faces as she ages. The senior living facility can work with you to provide the care she needs for incontinence, for example, or for getting into and out of a tub as well as bathing. Staff come into your loved one’s apartment on a schedule you’ve set up and leave at scheduled times once medicine has been dispensed or she has been dressed for the day. Your family member will get the care she needs but still have the privacy she appreciates.
The types of assisted living arrangements provided by senior living facilities generally include amenities that help your family member feel as if he’s still living at home. If he enjoys companionship on a daily basis, full-service dining rooms allow him the option of gathering with friends or family for meals that he doesn’t have to prepare himself. Light housekeeping, such as daily bed making, are also part of the assisted living benefits. A barber shop, chapel and combination computer lab and library are just some of the on-site amenities he can use. When your family member is ready, he can take part in activities or outings planned by the community staff. He’ll decide the level of involvement he prefers.
