Senior Care in Mount Vernon, WI
Understanding the differences between long term and short term senior care Provided by Comfort Keepers of Mount Vernon, WI
The senior care provided by Comfort Keepers of Mount Vernon, WI takes on a number of forms just by virtue of the flexibility of our programs. Comfort Keepers does offer two basic types of care for you to choose from, long and short term care. To understand the differences between the two one could think of the differences between a temp and a permanent employee. While our caregivers are far more than just temps, sometimes our clients do not need our services on a long term basis. An explanation of both types of care can help you best understand which one is right for your loved one.
Long Term Senior Care Keeps Your Senior In Their Home Safely
Long term care is what we suggest if your loved one is losing his or her ability to care for themselves due to age or chronic illness or injury. The assumption is that the client will need on-going care for the foreseeable future. In this case our advisors set up a long term plan that identifies the specific needs your loved one has, any possible changes that may be needed in their environment, and then pairs them with the best possible caregiver for their needs and personality with the intent of forming a long term relationship with that care giver. Long term senior care can take the form of weekly or daily visits, or can be a 24 hour a day, 7 days a week care plan for those who need help with mobility, toiletry, or need to be monitored full time.
Short Term Care Provides Seamless Care and Recovery
Our short term care works a bit differently. We have crafted this plan to help with situations that are not anticipated to be long term. This can include help transitioning from the hospital to home after surgery, illness, or injury. Other reasons for short term senior care include offering respite care for families caring for their loved one in their homes, and end of life care, where we help the family by providing both support and short term care for their loved one. As with transitioning care these services are uniquely molded around the needs of the client and their family for as short or long as needed.
