A care home provides all the necessary services to the residents.The main services include taking complete care of the daily needs of the residents like helping them in brushing,bathing,dressing,toileting,eating and other basic daily activities as many of them are physically too weak or unsafe.
One important service includes medical help, which is the most important service to be provided to the resident. With ageing comes many health issues which the residents face. The professionals at a care home take thorough care of the residents’ health issues. Emergency help is provided to the resident immediately if they experience any problems.
The residents are also provided with recreational activities so that they can socialize and entertain themselves. Research has shown that people who socialize more often are healthy and cheerful. It has a positive impact on one’s health and memory.
Each and every need of the resident is considered, including healthy food. Occasional changes in the menu allows residents’ to not get bored with the type of meals, although this is also considered carefully to provide proper nutrition.
Most of the care homes maintain high standards of hygiene and clean infrastructure.This is very necessary for a healthy living of the residents. As their immune system is weaker, the professionals at the care home have to strictly maintain these basic standards and guidelines.
All the care homes follow the safety and security guidelines for the safety of the residents. As the elderly people are physically weak, they cannot protect themselves from any unwanted incidents, so CCTV cameras are installed at all required areas for their protection.
Some care homes provide daycare centre, this is very helpful for any working couples who are out of the house during the day. This service is very useful and is becoming popular mainly in the metro cities. Even in this short period of time at the daycare centre, we try to make the elderly people comfortable so that do not miss their home and enjoy coming to a recreational centre.
The centre also provides yoga classes where professionals train the residents. They are offered this daily as it gives a healthy mind and body. This improves the energy levels of the resident and increases the cognitive function.
A care home provides rehabilitation service which helps in recovering patients from physical or mental trauma. Well trained nurses, physiotherapists are there to provide superior care for the patients. This helps in faster recovery of the patients.
Emergency help like ambulance service, access to medicines which are not available at all care homes are readily available at this centre.
