The 3 Most Used Senior Home Services

Senior home services are important for elders that prefer to remain at home, but have no children or relatives who are willing or able to help. These services have risen in popularity over the years. Most areas have an organization with volunteers, or paid workers, ready to deliver services to seniors in their communities. Here are 3 most used senior home services:

Service 1: Health Care Services

Senior home services often provide medical assistance to clients. If there’s a problem, workers can immediately take action and contact the appropriate health professionals. The services may include:

  • Ordering, paying for or obtaining benefits for medical treatment
  • Administering the correct doses of medicine, including shots
  • Checking vitals, such as blood pressure and heart rate

Service 2: Meal Delivery

Cooking daily, healthy meals can be difficult for seniors with limited mobility, or other health issues. Meal preparation, and home delivery, is popular among the other senior home services. The main reason that it is popular is because it’s a chore that has to be done three times a day, and it takes a lot of effort.

Service 3:  Homemaking Service

Cleaning up is another chore that is physically exhausting for many seniors. As a result, they rely on outside services to help them maintain a sanitary environment.  Services include laundry, vacuuming and taking care of pets, such as a service dog. Most insurance companies cover the cost of this service for seniors.
