Considering In Home Care in Dallas?
Our in-home care in Dallas encompasses all medical and non-medical home care services. Many seniors rely on our in-home care to stay in their homes. Our care and supportive planning can enable seniors to enjoy a happy healthy lifestyle in their own home.
Staying and Aging In Home? Why You Might Need In Home Care
In-home care is nonmedical care provided in the client’s home. It includes custodial care for elderly people and assistance with activities of daily living such as eating, bathing and providing medication reminders. Our in-home care professionals are trained to provide the highest standards of service and care. We maintain a safe environment for the senior receiving care. Caregivers are available to assist seniors in their desire to remain at home where they are most comfortable. We are available on an on-call or full-time basis.
Many seniors in Dallas and the surrounding areas prefer in-home care to going to a senior facility. Everyone prefers to stay where they are most familiar rather than have to deal with the pain and struggle of moving to new surroundings. As a small local Dallas company, we offer the same services as the largest of in-home care providers, but on a much more personalized and individually attentive level to our senior clients. Serving only the DFW Metroplex, with the owner and ALL caregivers residing locally.
The following are some things to consider if you are planning to stay at home. Lear Senior Care Services provides a complimentary in- home care visit to assist you in identifying some of these areas of consideration for you to make the best possible decision.
It is important to know what level of care you need:
- Minimum Care means you are independent for all personal care such as bathing, dressing, taking medication, eating, and toileting, but you might need assistance with one or two activities of daily living such as shopping, meal preparation, or going to appointments.
- Moderate Care means that while still independent you may need assistance with three or more activities of daily living such as full or stand-by assistance with bathing and dressing, personal hygiene and grooming, hydration and medications reminders, meal preparation, light housekeeping, errands and transportation.
- Maximum Care means that you require total care in all activities of daily living as well as the instrumental activities of daily living.
- During our complimentary visit Lear Senior Care Services will discuss the specific Activities of Daily Living along with the Instrumental Activities of Daily Living which would apply to your care plan. Here is a broad outline of these two groups.
- Activities of Daily Living include assistance with bathing, dressing, personal hygiene, grooming, toileting, incontinence care, fall prevention and mobility.
- Instrumental Activities of Daily Living include assistance with housekeeping, meal preparation, transportation, errands in addition to assistance with pet care and encouragement to keep up social activities and friendships.

Our discussion would also include questions about toileting, eyesight and hearing impairment, and any cognitive impairment. It is also important to note your interests and personality.
