Providing a holistic approach to serve elderly and senior citizens
Elderly care services: One tip in caring for seniors is to remember that providing care goes beyond the physical, practical aspect. Keeping seniors meaningfully engaged is also important for their mental and cognitive well-being and keeps dementia at bay. While this may sound like additional work and effort, it can actually enhance your caregiving experience, help you build a deeper and closer relationship with your loved one and keep you going in the long-run. Even so, caregiving can still be physically and emotionally demanding journey. In trying times, do not hesitate to reach out for help. From professional caregivers to support groups, there are many forms of support out there for caregivers in Singapore. You are not alone. Homage lets you connect with fellow family caregivers and support one another, while sharing practical tips on taking care of a senior loved one.
Respite Care: As a family caregiver, we often put the needs and interests of loved ones ahead of ourselves, looking after them 24/7. Over time, the physical, emotional and mental exhaustion can lead to caregiver burnout. Besides taking a toll on health, caregiver burnout also affects the quality of care that loved one receives, which is why taking regular breaks is important. With respite care, you can get short-term care support for your loved ones. This allows you to take a break from caregiving to attend to your own needs, from several days to a few weeks at a time. Emergency respite care is suitable for family caregivers who need to engage respite care at short notice, such as when the caregiver falls ill or when a family or work emergency crops up. At Homage, you can share your care needs with its Care Advisors and we’ll match you to the most suitable caregiver within 48 hours.
Home Therapy: Rehabilitation therapy is important in helping adults and children regain independence in daily living and social activities. For individuals recovering from surgery, stroke or a fall, therapy services can promote a fuller and speedier recovery. Children with developmental conditions may also benefit from the recommended strategies an experienced therapist comes up with to support their development at home and in the community. Being in a home environment will be especially helpful for an occupational therapist to better understand the unique lifestyle habits and living environment of the care recipient, allowing them to customize a personalized programme accordingly.
