Home Care Idaho Falls

BRiO is the leader in home health and hospice services for east Idaho. If you find yourself seeking this type of care for a loved one, we understand that this is a difficult decision to make and will be there to direct you the best we can. Our many years of experience give us unique insight into this transitional period in the life of the patient and their families. Home care is a great option that is more customizable than others such as a nursing home. The level of care and frequency varies, and the ability to remain in a familiar environment is a huge advantage. Our number one goal with our home health services is to keep you healthy and comfortable at home and out of the hospital.

Who Needs Home Care

There are no real qualifications for receiving in-home care. Most insurances will not cover these costs, but some of them will. In this area, there are many worker compensation insurances from individuals who have worked for the national laboratory that provide exactly this type of care and companionship benefit. Medicare primarily covers medical and hospital costs and would not cover home care. 

If you or a loved one needs help with any of the following, you may consider home health assistance from BRiO. 

  • Activities of Daily Living (ADL)
  • Medication Management
  • Chronic Health Conditions
  • Post-Hospitalization Recovery
  • Memory Care
  • Companionship
  • Meal Preparation
  • Fall Prevention
  • Respite Care
  • Safety Concerns
  • Stroke or Injury Recovery

In-home care is a flexible and customizable option that can be tailored to the specific needs and preferences, providing a range of services to promote well-being, independence, and quality of life without having to be uprooted. The specific type and level of in-home care required will vary from person to person. If someone is in the final stages of life, they will require hospice care. While different from home health, hospice in Idaho Falls is also a service that we provide if age or illness advances to that point.

 

Benefits of Home Health Care

Familiar Environment: Being surrounded by personal belongings and memories can help seniors feel safe, secure and comfortable. 

Independence: In-home care promotes a sense of independence and dignity. They can maintain their daily routines and make choices about their care, which can help preserve their self-esteem.

Personalized Care: In-home care can be tailored to the specific needs and preferences of the individual. Caregivers can provide one-on-one attention and develop a close, personal relationship with the elderly person.

Safety and Comfort: Home care allows seniors to age in place safely. Caregivers can make necessary home modifications to reduce the risk of accidents and ensure the home environment is conducive to the elderly person’s needs.

Social Interaction: Loneliness and social isolation can be significant issues for the elderly. In-home caregivers can provide companionship and engage in meaningful conversations, activities, and outings to help combat these feelings.

Cost-Effective: In some cases, in-home care can be more cost-effective than moving to an assisted living facility or nursing home, especially if the senior’s care needs are not too extensive.

Community: Seniors who remain at home can maintain their existing social connections, community involvement, and familiarity with local services and resources.

Customizable Services: In-home care services can include a range of support, from basic companionship and housekeeping to skilled nursing care, physical therapy, and medical management. The level of care can be adjusted as the senior’s needs change over time.

Family Involvement: In-home care allows family members to stay involved in the care of their loved ones while avoiding the physical and emotional distance that can come with placement in a care facility.

Peace of Mind: Family members often experience peace of mind knowing that their loved one is receiving personalized care at home. This can alleviate concerns about the quality of care in institutional settings.

Some seniors may require more intensive medical care or have safety concerns that make in-home care less feasible. In such cases, alternative options like assisted living or nursing homes may be more appropriate.

What to Look For in a Provider

The things that matter to you will vary from what is most important to someone else. Our circumstances and life experiences make all of us unique with different needs and priorities.

When looking for an in-home care provider for yourself or a loved one, it’s essential to carefully evaluate potential candidates to ensure they can meet specific needs and preferences. It’s crucial to conduct thorough research and interviews when selecting an in-home care provider to ensure that they can offer the highest quality of care and support for your most important checklist items. Don’t hesitate to ask questions and seek clarification on any concerns you may have before making a decision.
