HomeCentris Healthcare’s Eyes & Ears Program
As our loved ones age, their care needs can become increasingly complex. Some older adults may require assistance with tasks of daily liv
ing, including bathing, dressing, and grooming. Others may need medication management, or help managing chronic conditions such as diabetes or heart disease. For many families who may not live near their loved one, enlisting the help of a home care agency is an effective way to ensure a pair of “eyes & ears“ are watching over their loved ones. This in-home support empowers seniors to maintain their health and independence.
HomeCentris can be a family’s Eyes and Ears for an elderly parent by providing regular updates on the patient’s condition and care needs. Our caregivers typically maintain ongoing communication with a patient’s family members and the HomeCentris agency, providing regular progress reports and updates on any changes in the patient’s condition or care plan. This ongoing communication helps family members stay informed on their loved one’s well-being and ensures that any changes in their condition are addressed promptly.
In addition to providing updates on the patient’s condition, HomeCentris can also act as an advocate for your loved one. Our caregivers are trained to recognize and report any signs of abuse or neglect and can the agency and family members if they suspect that the patient is at risk. They can also work with family members to identify potential hazards in the home, such as loose rugs or electrical cords, and make recommendations for modifications to improve safety.
Another way HomeCentris’ Eyes & Ears program can assist is by providing companionship and emotional support to the patient. Caregivers can help reduce social isolation and loneliness by engaging your loved one in conversation, playing games, or accompanying them on outings. They can also provide emotional support during difficult times, such as after the loss of a spouse or when facing a terminal illness.
Overall, HomeCentris can play a vital role in caring for elderly patients and supporting their families. By acting as the patient’s “eyes and ears” and providing regular updates on their condition, home care agencies can help ensure that patients receive the care and support they need to maintain their health and independence.
