The amazing benefits of professional homecare services are not just reserved for clients but also for their family members, too. In fact, there is nothing more wonderful than the peace of mind that comes from knowing your loved ones are being cared for and are in good hands, when you’re not around. Many people associate personal care assistants (PCAs) and home nurses with senior care services; however, all people from different age groups can benefit from in-home care, particularly adults living autism or adults living with a disability.

If you have an adult child living with a disability, professional adult home care offers a lifetime of support for both you and your son or daughter.

Here are some of the benefits provided by different types of homecare professionals:

Live-in Caregivers:

A caregiver who lives in the home with a client can be a great compromise if your child wants to move out of the family home yet is unable to live independently without the support of another. Caregivers can keep you up to date on how your child is doing at all times and ensure he or she is being cared for whenever you’re not around.

Daytime Caregivers:

If your child is generally able to live independently but requires assistance with certain daily tasks, such as shopping, cooking, or cleaning, a caregiver who visits during the day may provide the support he or she is looking for. This gives your adult child more independence, yet there is the added security of knowing your child will have help whenever they need it.

Respite Care for Adults:

In-home respite care is typically helpful for short periods of time, such as after an injury or procedure. However, for an adult living with a disability, having a caregiver stop by for a couple hours, every few days a week, can make the transition to living independently a much more comfortable experience. Not to mention, it can provide a huge relief for family members and loved ones who live far away.

It’s never easy to be away from your child, even when they’re adults, but if your adult child has a developmental or physical disability, there’s always some added anxiety.
