Your aging loved one is very important to you. Before committing their care to anyone else, you need to know the different levels of care for the elderly provided by home care companies. You don’t want to choose an in-home care provider that doesn’t support your loved one’s senior living needs, which greatly vary from person to person.

Do you have questions about senior in-home care like “What are the options for senior care at home?” and “What elder care options exist for my aging parents?”

These are great questions to ask, and we’ll be answering them in this blog.

Let’s discuss the varying levels of care for the elderly to ensure your loved one receives the best possible care.

What Are the Different Types of Senior Care?

At-home care providers offer varying levels of care for the elderly. The best elder care providers have a team of experienced care professionals who support older adults and their families.

At Stowell Associates, we make sure you and your loved one receive a premium care experience from your first interaction with our Care Team.

Our care managers and in-home caregivers work together to bring you peace of mind while enabling your loved one to age in place with high-quality in-home care.

Here are some different levels of care for elderly adults offered by Stowell Associates.

1. Care Management: Caring for Family Members and Seniors

Care Managers are highly trained men and women in the elder care industry who take the time to get to know each client and their families.

Our expert Care Managers work with adult children to orchestrate the best in-home care for their aging parents. Care Managers are registered nurses (RNs) and masters-level social workers who create unique care solutions for older adults. They also ensure that in-home caregivers are following the established Whole-Person Care Plan.

Care Managers provide two primary benefits:

  1. Offer peace of mind and clarity to adult children, so family members don’t need to decide who will be the family caregiver, knowing their loved one is in good hands.
  2. Regularly evaluate your loved one’s care plan and coordinate with their caregiver to ensure your elderly parent receives premium care every day.

The first person you’ll speak with when you call Stowell Associates is a Care Manager. They will discuss your options for elderly care at home and answer any questions you have about in-home care for your loved one.

2. Caregiving: Types of Care for Seniors

Once you’ve talked with a Care Manager, they will begin forming a personalized in-home elder care plan for your loved one. Our dedicated and passionate in-home caregivers carry out this plan, supporting the daily needs of elderly adults.  

In-home caregivers are trained to provide professional caregiving services like personal care, support services, and transportation services. Our caregivers will continue working with the Care Managers as a holistic Care Team, providing a premium care experience every day.

In-home Personal Care

Personal care services are performed by caregivers who come to your loved one’s home and help them eat, bathe, brush their teeth, use the restroom, and get there on time.

Support Services

In addition to personal care, caregivers support elderly adults around the house by making meals, doing laundry, and helping them get dressed for the day.

Transportation Services

Transportation services enable your loved one to safely pick up groceries, run errands, and attend social or health care appointments with the help of a caregiver.

Whatever the daily needs of your loved one are, our caregivers are ready and prepared to help.

3. Advanced Elder Care Options

We know many advanced care concerns arise in aging seniors, such as dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease. Our Care Team can help elderly adults and their families navigate complex care situations with advanced care solutions.

Some of the advanced elder care options available include:

  • Creative engagement
  • Dementia care
  • Chronic disease management
  • Parkinson’s disease care
  • Palliative care

Now that you know some of the different levels of care for the elderly, you can make a more informed decision for your loved one.
