Choice HomecareAcquired Brain Injury, Complex Care

In the first part of our series profile, acquired brain injuries and proper care solutions, we delved into the causes, effects and ideal treatment methods to make everyday life easier. Today, let’s finish up by exploring the many ways we at Choice Homecare Ottawa’s in-home care services can make potential recovery and achieving optimal wellness that much easier. 

Companionship and Social Skills Redevelopment

Individuals dealing with brain injuries of any sort need regular interaction with others if they hope to recover some or all of their social skills, should they have suffered as a result of the damage caused. Our in-home caregivers offer warm friendship, a chance to practice conversations and make memories, and the ability to rebuild social skills such as speech, concentration, and memory preservation. The more you work at it, the more progress can potentially be made, which is why we are happy to not just be caregivers but also companions you can count on.

Assistance with Daily Living Activities

Those living with acquired brain injuries often need assistance with the common everyday tasks most of us take for granted, such as washing dishes, opening doors, carrying items, and otherwise. Our caregivers can provide ample support for these daily living activities and more, ensuring you don’t push yourself too hard and remain safe.

24-Hour Monitoring and Nursing Support

A critical component of quality everyday life when living with an acquired brain injury is having someone to watch out for you. Symptoms can flash through the mind unexpectedly, meaning everything from seizures to losses of feeling and falls can be unpredictable in some circumstances. Choice Homecare Ottawa is proud to offer 24-hour monitoring in these cases, paired with industry-leading proactive support from a professional Nurse you can trust. 

Light Housekeeping and Homemaking

You deserve to enjoy the comforts of your own home regardless of your condition, but it can be increasingly difficult to do so when you can’t take care of your property as easily. Our in-home caregivers strive to ensure your home stays neat, tidy, and in good shape, lending to your peace of mind and reduced stress levels. From light cleaning to meal preparation and more, we’re happy to be there for you whenever you need us.

If you or someone you know is having trouble managing on their own with an acquired brain injury, traumatic or otherwise, know that Choice Homecare is here for you. Reach out to our compassionate caregivers today.
