A home is something you build over years and years of living. You form bonds, make memories, and experience life in your home, so it is understandable why it is so important for senior family members to want to stay in their home even when they may not be able to do it alone. This is where Acti-Kare can help. Acti-Kare of Birmingham, provides top of the line in-home care from our trained and professional caregivers for your loved ones in need. Whether it’s assisting with grooming and hygiene, such as bathing, or helping with nutrition, Acti-Kare is here to support and enrich the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of your family member when they need. And we do it all right from the comfort of home.
One of the most significant personal care issues you may face is grooming and hygiene. This can become a frustrating and challenging task to many with physical and cognitive limitations. With a trained Acti-Kare caregiver in the home, your loved one will get assistance with everything from showering and bathing, to shaving, and oral hygiene. Keeping up with regular hygiene is very important for the physical and mental health of your loved one, and with Acti-Kare it will never be an issue. Acti-Kare caregivers understand the sensitivity and discretion required when dealing with toileting and other incontinence care needs. Not having proper assistance with these issues can lead unpleasant odors or severe skin infections. With in-home care provided by Acti-Kare, your loved one will get the care and attention needed while maintaining dignity.
Remaining active in the later years of life is a great way to stimulate body and mind and is very important. This has become an essential part of the Acti-Kare service. Starting with transferring and positioning within the house, Acti-Kare’s trained caregivers help your loved one stay mobile within their home. Many seniors with physical limitations are at risk of bedsores, muscle atrophy and/or breathing and digestive problems. Staying in one position in bed, seats, and wheelchairs for too long can increase these risks. This can be remedied by having an Acti-Kare professional in the home. Helping your loved one change positions and move throughout the house every day is a top priority of your Acti-Kare in-home caregiver. In addition to staying mobile within the home, it is essential to remain mobile outside the home and live golden years as healthy and happy as possible. Acti-Kare’s trained caregivers ensure that your loved ones can get from place to place safely and comfortably.
Nutrition and diet are vital in one’s golden years but can be challenging to manage. You or your loved one may not be able to cook anymore, they may not be able to eat certain foods, or they may be on a special diet for medical reasons such as diabetes. Maintaining a nutritious diet can help the physical and mental well-being of someone in their later years. Whether you or your loved one needs assistance preparing and cooking meals or sticking to a prescribed diet for health reasons, Acti-Kare’s trained caregivers can make meals a positive experience. Acti-Kare’s trained caregivers can make mealtime a social and mentally stimulating part of the day. Giving your loved one a companion to spend meals with while engaging in conversation can make all the difference in the world.
Staying socially engaged in public and at home is a critical part of life and can help reduce the risk of depression and other cognitive issues. Whether it’s at the grocery store or right in the living room, Acti-Kare caregivers provide friendly companionship that helps keep our clients stimulated and engaged in their everyday lives.
General housekeeping is another regular task that can become difficult in later years due to physical or cognitive limitations. Acti-Kare’s trained caregivers provide housekeeping services that include vacuuming, sweeping, organizing closets and drawers, dusting, mopping, and any other light housekeeping duty required. Acti-Kare caregivers can also manage laundry needs including washing, drying and putting away clean clothes.
Acti-Kare caregivers understand that getting around town can become very difficult in later years of life. To help with this, caregivers can perform everyday errands such as grocery shopping, picking up medications, and going to the post office. They can even drive and accompany our clients on outings which helps them stay active and enjoy social time with others.
Acti-Kare is dedicated to helping seniors enjoy their golden years in their home where they feel happy and safe.
