At-home care from a qualified home health care agency in Washington, DC can help you or a loved one maintain your independence and live a healthier, happier, and more fulfilling life as you age. Comfort Home Care is the best choice to get dependable and compassionate care from highly qualified CNAs, GNAs, and HHA in Washington, DC, and Montgomery County.
Who Benefits from Home Health Services
Aging is inevitable, and when it includes physical decline and cognitive decline, it can be difficult to maintain independence. Even with the help of a primary caregiver, you may not be able to continue living at home as long as you would like. For those who prefer to age in place and want to remain in the safe and familiar environment of your own home, care from a certified nursing assistant (CNA) or geriatric nursing assistant (GNA) or Home Health Aide (HHA) through a home health care agency is the answer.
Not only can our qualified caregivers help those who are aging and want independence, but we can also provide assistance when:
- A primary caregiver needs additional help
- A primary caregiver is going to be away for travel or work
- Your loved one with cognitive impairment cannot meet their own hygiene, health, and safety needs
- You are released from the hospital or discharged from a skilled nursing facility (SNF) and need additional care and assistance
- You have inpatient or outpatient surgery and cannot provide for your own activities of daily living (ADL) following the procedure
Qualified Caregivers for ADL
In order to remain healthy and safe, everyone must be able to meet some basic requirements, often referred to as “activities of daily living”, or ADL. These activities include:
Preparing and eating nutritious meals
- Bathing and conducting basic hygiene activities like brushing teeth
- Grooming activities like washing and styling your hair or shaving
- Mobility to get around the interior or exterior of your home
- Getting out of bed and getting dressed in the morning, as well as getting ready for bed and getting into bed at night
- Using the toilet and other important continence tools, including the ability to change ostomy and drainage bags
When these tasks become difficult or impossible, moving out of your home into an assisted living facility isn’t your only option. Talk to our care team to find out if you can benefit from some assistance and continue to live at home for many more months or years to come. We’ll create a customized plan based on your goals and the level of care required.
