What’s the difference between Concierge Services and Caregiving?

Edmond and Oklahoma City have numerous in-home care, home health or hospice agencies that provide caregivers to seniors needing assistance in all or most areas of daily living.

As I have been out speaking and visiting with families I have found that they have assumed that Guardian Angel Concierge Services is just another home-care agency and most of the people that I have talked to have stated that they are not needing a care giver because they are healthy and can do things for themselves.

There seems to be an underlying stigma attached to having a “caregiver”.

The thought of having an assistants may conjure feelings of dependency or being unable to care for oneself.

The reality is that many senior adults don’t fit into this category of needing care, yet assistance might still be needed to provide a high quality lifestyle.

Caregivers managed by home-care agencies are nursing assistants usually referred to as personal care aides, home health aides, or certified nursing assistants.

Their primary duties consist of personal care such as bathing, grooming, feeding and helping patients with physical therapy.

Many senior adults do not have the need for the services a caregiver provides, but could use a helping hand with day to day activities like grocery & delivery services, errand running, home management, technology set-up or paperwork organization.

 

People needing an occasional helping hand are good candidates of a concierge service.

Guardian Angels Concierge Services is a good fit for active older adults, stressed out caregivers and families who would like someone who can help carry some of the load of daily living, by being available a few hours a week, the whole day, once a week or every day to help with a variety of tasks. The assistance of a concierge increases a seniors well being and makes them less reliant, or feeling burdensome on family and friends.

Guardian Angels is available to work with families and seniors to assist you in lightening the load of responsibilities and duties.

The definition of hotel concierge is ‘the keeper of the keys’. ‘Keeper’ meaning the point of contact, information and assistance to those they serve.
