As Rhode Island’s population gets older, more and more adults are going to need help around the house. And while some families can rely on friends and relatives to pick up the slack when it comes to their elders, many families don’t have that option. That’s where home health care services can step in. For older adults who are well enough to live at home but need extra support to do so, PACE-RI offers options to keep them safe and well.
As part of our comprehensive array of offerings, PACE-RI is able to provide daily services to elderly folks who need an extra hand at home. Our staff can assist with a range of needs, including:
- Buying groceries
- Delivering prescriptions
- Light housework
- Medication managements
For many participants, home care provides the opportunity to talk with someone and bring up any concerns they may have about their health care. It also gives the clinical team a way to ensure that participants are staying healthy and keeping up with their care.
Tailoring Your Elderly Care Services at Home
When it comes to elderly home healthcare services, there is a wide range of options available. For PACE-RI, home care is typicallyrecommended for homebound elders who are not able to receive care in our centers. Our team of geriatricians takes the need for home care very seriously, given thelack of socialization that participants can face without regular day center attendance. But when home care is the right option for a participant, we ensure that they receive the same level of care that they would if they were in the day center.
Our staff are eager to find the right balance of care for each participant. That means making participants comfortable with the clinical team they work with. From nurses to social workers, every member of the PACE-RI staff has the same goal: To keep participants healthy and well at home. No matter what care needs are involved, we go the extra mile to ensure that home care for our elderly participants is top-notch.
