Home care services are not only for seniors.
Parkwood Home Care offers home care services to adults and youth of all ages who need assistance with daily activities like meal preparation, transportation, and bathing and grooming. Our programs are designed to enhance the quality of life for people with disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, and other developmental and/or intellectual conditions.
Home Care for Special Needs
Choosing the right home care services for younger adults depends on a number of physical and cognitive factors including:
- Hearing impairment
- Vision impairment
- Physical disabilities
- Mental health issues
- Autism spectrum disorders
The extent of a disability is also a factor in determining what type of home care is best.
Benefits of Home Care in Nova Scotia
Many people with disabilities want and deserve to be active participants in their community. Fortunately, community integration is now considered a norm. Many families, though, need additional help to support their loved ones with special needs. Parkwood’s Care Programs offer several types of assistance.
- Our hourly CARE program is designed for post-surgery in-home care.
- Our Daily CARE program is ideal for people who want or need a companion on outings, shopping trips, or walks. For the vision impaired, reading is provided.
- Our full day CARE program, or Lite Companionship Program, covers personal care services like bathing, grooming, and dressing as well as wake-up or tuck-in services. Meal prep and light housekeeping are also included. Our customization Peace of Mind Package is based on a client’s individual needs.
As with all our senior in-home care programs, respite care provides caregivers with much needed free time to restore their own well-being. Home care allows younger adults with disabilities to maintain a sense of autonomy and independence. It also allows them to make personal connections with people who are not their immediate family.
