Home Care in Miami: Companion Care vs. Personal Care
Do you have a loved one who is a senior or has special needs in Miami? Finding the right home care services to meet their needs is important. You have a lot of options, so how do you choose? Let’s look at what companion care and personal care have to offer.
Both companion care and personal care are non-medical services MAZAL Nursing Services offers to families in Miami. Some seniors may receive only these services or have them in addition to a private nurse who helps them with their medical needs.
Companion Care Services
Aging or living with a disability doesn’t have to be a lonely road. Companion caregivers assist with everyday tasks and provide emotional support for their patients. They are also invaluable support to the families of seniors and those with disabilities, as they take pressure off loved ones by providing much-needed daily support and allow families to spend quality time with their loved ones.
At MAZAL Nursing Services our companion care services include,
- Meal preparation
- Assistance with housekeeping and chores
- Assistance running errands
- Transportation to and from appointments and social activities
- Communicating to family members
We work with families to determine your specific needs and create a schedule for home care that can be daily, weekly, or multiple times a week.
Personal Care Services
Privacy and independence are important to us, but sometimes, we need a little extra help with personal care. Whether it is because of major surgery, aging, injury, or disability, MAZAL Nursing Services offers personal care services that can be temporary or long-term.
Sometimes a personal care provider may also offer some of the companionship services we discussed above. However, personal care itself focuses on,
- Assistance with bathing and showering
- Oral hygiene
- Assistance with lotion, haircare, etc
- Non-medical assistance such as maintaining catheter bags
- Changing continence pads and cleanup
- Toilet assistance
Because of the nature of personal care services, we take additional time to understand your specific needs and create a care schedule that will help you or your loved one live their best independent life.
