Getting Started with In-Home Senior Care from Lear Senior Care Services in Dallas
What Can You Expect from Lear Senior Care Services?
As we age, one goal for many of us is to stay in our own home. Often one compromise needed to accomplish this goal is to accept in home care for seniors in Dallas to assist with tasks of daily living which were once easy for us to do on our own. At Lear Senior Care Services, we are sensitive to the process of making that transition from living independently in your home to accepting in home care.
We provide senior care services in Dallas that meet your individual needs as well. These can include full or standby assistance with personal care such as bathing, dressing, incontinence care, toileting, mobility and fall prevention. Also, we can assist with meal preparation, light housekeeping, errands, transportation, comfort and emotional support for dementia related conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease.
How Do I Get Started?
During our initial meeting, our Administrator will meet with you and your family so that we can get to know you. We want to answer any questions you and your family might have about engaging senior care services. It is important for you to know that the office staff and caregivers at Lear Senior Care Services understand that it is your home when they are working with you. We are there to assist with all the tasks of daily living so that you can live independently in the privacy of your own home on your own terms.
What Information Will We Need From You?
It is important for us to gather as much information as possible to make the transition to accepting home care in Dallas as successful as possible. We will want to know your daily routine, whether you are a “morning person” or an “afternoon person”. What are your favorite meals, when do you like to eat? What is your exercise routine and do you have a set of exercises that we can encourage you to do? What social activities do you enjoy and how can we help you to continue to participate in those? Do you have regular errands and appointments? Don’t worry – we will make sure you get there and we will make sure that you have our assistance throughout your appointment.
In addition, we will need your general health information, primary health care physician and a medication list along with the names and addresses of 2 or 3 family friends as contacts.
How Will We Begin to Staff Care?
Once we have met you and have an idea of what your needs are, we will partner with you and your family to create a plan of care that specifically addresses your needs. We correlate all your information into a log book that stays in your home so that our caregivers have that information to refer to regarding your plan of care. We also go over the care plan prior to their arrival in your home so that you and your family do not have to waste time explaining your needs. We find a caregiver or caregivers who will be compatible with you, someone you can depend on and whom you will forward to seeing on a regular basis.
