Activities provided with In Home Care
There are many options available to seniors who want to age at home as opposed to a care facility. For those who do chose this option, their caregiver can provide help with a number of different activities. At Pinnacle Home Care, we will discuss the type of activities that are best suited for each individual. This can be done during our initial consultation so that you can get a feel for the type of caregiver we will send to your home.

Grooming and Bathing Services
For seniors who have trouble grooming or bathing themselves, care givers can help in a way that is sensitive to the needs of the individual. We will carefully help you with grooming needs, such as bathing and shaving. We can also assist with hair styling, nail care and foot care.
As we get older, sometimes it can get harder and harder to leave the home and go on outings. The world is a big place, and we want to make sure that you have the opportunity to explore it. That’s why we provide our clients with lunch outings. You deserve to get out in the world and see what’s going on around you—and we want to make sure that happens! Our lunch outings are a great way to get out in the world and explore what it has to offer.
Cooking and Cleaning
For seniors who haven’t been able to cook on their own, or perhaps haven’t been able to access all the ingredients that they used to when cooking, companion care can be a great solution. Food is the key to a healthy lifestyle, and we know that seniors who have access to nutritious food are better able to maintain their health. Cooking is also a great way for seniors to stay active and socialize with their care providers. Cleaning, on the other hand, is a service that some seniors have been unable to perform on their own. All of us want to live in a clean home, but not all of us are able to keep our homes clean on our own. Cleaning is a service in home caregivers can provide, or assist with. Some seniors prefer having help cleaning the harder to reach spaces of their home, but still prefer to perform much of their cleaning on their own and maintain their independence.
Especially for those who live alone, finding support and companions to play board games with can be difficult for many seniors. In home care services can provide seniors with a way to socialize and have fun while engaging their minds and bodies. We will help you choose the right board games for your loved one based on their interests and abilities.
Especially for those whose eyesight has changed with age, reading can become harder than it used to. If you or a loved one wants to have access to reading like they used to, then in home care is a great solution. In home caregivers can bring books to the client’s home, read to them, or even help with scanning devices that can read text aloud. We can provide board games that are fun and entertaining for seniors, but also educational. For example, we offer a variety of card games that can help improve your brain function and can even prevent dementia in later years.
In home care can help with physical exercises that might be too difficult for a client to do on their own. Physical therapy is an example of this, as it can strengthen muscles and improve mobility. Other activities such as walking, yoga, and Tai Chi are also great ways to stay active in the comfort of one’s own home while receiving assistance from an in home caregiver.
Grocery Shopping Errands
If you or a loved one are feeling overwhelmed by the responsibilities of running errands and taking care of household tasks, then in home care can help ease some of that stress. A senior caregiver can take over some or all of these tasks so you have more time for yourself or loved ones. Shopping for groceries and other items can be difficult when suffering from dementia or other conditions that make physical movement difficult. An in home caregiver can be there to help you get what you need and even assist with cooking meals. Errands are another chore that many people struggle with, especially when they have to drive places.
