Non-Medical Home CareThe elderly population in the United State is increasing in both size and complexity of care. In fact, according to SeniorLiving, 8,000 baby boomers retire daily, creating the need for more in-home care. Fortunately, here at HealthPro Wellness Center in Houma, LA, Dr. Patrick Haydel and his team provide exceptional health and wellness services, including non-medical home care. Read on to learn more about non-medical home care, and how can it benefit you and your loved one?

Aging in place

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) calls today's philosophy of elder care "aging in place." Aging in place means living successfully in a safe and independent home environment and avoiding long-term care placement, including nursing home care and assisted living facilities.

At HealthPro Wellness Center in Houma, LA, Dr. Haydel and his staff deliver non-medical home care which supports aging in place. How does this look? HealthPro Wellness Center trains and places caregivers skilled in supporting the needs of seniors desiring to remain in their long-time homes and communities.

To do this, caregivers, families, and the clients themselves partner in creating and maintaining a comfortable, safe, and stimulating environment in the home. Daily companionship and social interaction are key factors in individualized care plans.
