Personal Home Care Helps Seniors In Nassau, NY, With The Activities Of Daily Living.
To explain just what personal home care services are, we at Galaxy Home Care of Nassau of Nassau use the term “Activities of Daily Living”. These are daily activities that we all do in the course of taking care of ourselves that most able-bodied people don’t think twice about. We all wake up in the morning, use the toilet, brush our teeth or care for our dentures, prepare and eat food, shower or bathe, brush our hair (if we have hair), and take medication if that’s part of our daily routine.
For many elderly people, these aren’t easy tasks. These activities can be difficult if you have trouble getting around, if you use a colostomy or ostomy bag, or if you’re forgetful, either as a normal result of aging or because of a neurodegenerative disease. But these are daily activities that all need to be done. That’s why Galaxy Home Care of Nassau of Nassau offers personal home care services. Caregivers can visit seniors in their Nassau homes and help them with all of these activities and more.
