As seniors grow older, they will experience inevitable physical and mental changes. For some, medical conditions may develop that cause the need for assistance with daily care. These elder care needs range from light assistance, to help with basic tasks such as grooming and hygiene. At Your Side Southern Metro Houston's team is here to help seniors and their families with these tasks to work toward maintaining and improving our clients’ quality of life.

Elder Care Needs

Elder care needs will vary based on each individual’s state of health and wellbeing. Seniors and their loved ones should seek a quality team of caregivers to ensure that all needs are met while still preserving and maintaining a sense of dignity and independence. Elder care services are best delivered based on customized assessments of the seniors health and living conditions. Based on this assessment, caregivers can determine the best elder care plan for each client.

Elder care daily tasks may fulfill needs such as:

  • Grooming, bathing, toileting, and hygiene
  • Meal planning and preparation
  • Medication reminders
  • Companionship and family respite
  • Supervision of safety around the home
  • Assistance with errands and transportation

Managing Medical Conditions

One of the most critical components of an elder care plan is the need to tend to various senior medical conditions. With age, our bodies are constantly changing. Many seniors face medical conditions that affect daily life and require special considerations for care. It’s important for seniors to receive elder care that caters to the needs created by senior medical conditions, such as medication reminders or management and follow-up with physician orders.

Many seniors will face chronic conditions such as:

  • Dementia
  • Arthritis
  • C.O.P.D.
  • Asthma
  • Diabetes
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • High Cholesterol

Medication Management

Medication management is a common staple of an elder care plan. In fact, is it estimated that roughly 90 percent of individuals in the U.S. age 65 and older are on a regimen that includes one or more types of medication. However, managing medication and remembering to take them is often a daily struggle for seniors with these medical needs. A thorough and effective elder care plan can help seniors to ensure that medication regimens are strictly adhered to so that their health and well-being can be maintained.
