Waterloo Hourly & Respite Care Promotes Senior Independence

Needs and desires change with age, and for many older adults, a top priority in late-life is retaining independence. When families are faced with the reality that a senior loved one needs help with daily activities, it becomes necessary to balance the desire for independence with appropriate levels of support. That’s where we come in. At Home Care Assistance of Waterloo and Kitchener, we provide hourly home care on an as-needed basis so seniors can continue to live safely, comfortably, and independently in the comfort of home.

Tailored Part-Time Care for Older Adults

When care and support are tailored to meet individual needs and preferences, day-to-day life becomes easier to manage, safety is enhanced, and peace of mind is achieved. To get a clear picture of our client’s lifestyle, from personal abilities and regular routines to home environment and family involvement, Home Care Assistance of Waterloo offers complimentary in-home consultations conducted by experienced Care Managers. Part-time hourly care services can then be scheduled to meet needs, and can include:

  • Light housekeeping such as laundry and changing bed linens
  • Nutritious meal preparation in accordance with dietary preferences
  • Bathing, dressing, grooming, and incontinence
  • Encouragement for daily exercise and physical fitness
  • Mobility assistance and safe bed or wheelchair transfers
  • Transportation for errands, medical appointments, and personal events
  • Companionship and social stimulation

Hourly Caregivers Provide Respite for Overwhelmed Families

Although our hourly home care services offer many benefits to senior adults, it is often a great resource for families who have taken on the role of caregiver. Professionally trained and experienced in senior care, our licensed and bonded hourly caregivers can provide as-needed care a few hours a day or a few days a week so that you have time to take care of yourself, run errands, spend time with family and friends, or simply relax. Family caregivers who embrace healthy habits like part-time respite care not only ensure their own health, but consistent, quality care for their senior family member.
