Care givers are your housekeepers par excellence. If there is a need for this much servitude, they will be assisting you with your housework. They will even be helping out in the kitchen. And yet there is still more that they can do for you. Care givers representing the assisted living care albuquerque network as fully paid professionals or voluntary stalwarts will even be taking the old folks shopping. Not just old folks but special people with special needs too.
These are people who are wheelchair-bound or really have difficulty in walking. When in transit to and from home, these people will be travelling in specially-equipped vans or buses. Perhaps one of the challenges in this special mode of transport is that, logistically speaking, provision can only be made for one or two wheelchairs. Otherwise, the rest of the seating arrangements should be relatively comfortable and safe for elderly and special needs people.
Care givers do a lot more than housekeeping and accompanying the elderly and people with disabilities. They are assisting their patients with their medical needs too. They liaise with professional medical practitioners on the patients’ behalf.
That much has been said. Assisting living professionals and volunteers are enabling and empowering the elderly and special needs people to live as comfortably as possible. Falling under the category of special needs people should also be those who have mental disabilities. And note too that it is not only the elderly that are being taken care of but young children too.
There will be those who simply can no longer stay at home. For them special provision has been made at a specially-equipped assisted living home. It is not an institution. It is a home.
