Personal Care Services
Bathing, Grooming, and Hygiene
Senior care can help our clients feel positive about their appearance through bathing, grooming, and hygiene assistance. Bathing not only cleanses the skin but goes deeper to refresh the spirit, provide relaxation, and stimulate circulation. Our care experts are trained to lessen any embarrassment or discomfort.
Mobility assistance helps seniors maintain an active a lifestyle with consideration to their ages, abilities, and overall health. There are many physical health benefits of keeping the senior mobile, including lowering blood pressure, improving digestion and sleep, increasing energy and stamina, and strengthening the heart. A care aide can also accompany the client on a short walk, and provide encouragement and reminders to complete prescribed exercises.
Transferring and Positioning
Senior services experts are trained to move and place clients in correct posture positions to promote health and safety. Proper transferring and positioning from or into beds and chairs eliminates pressure areas on the skin, reduces weakening and stiffening of muscles, and encourages proper breathing, digestion, and elimination.
Toileting and Incontinence Care
We work to maintain the dignity and self-esteem of seniors and other adult clients as they assist with daily living activities. Through this caring approach care aides help lessen the embarrassment clients may feel associated with incontinence and need for toileting assistance.
Feeding and Special Diet
Some clients need help feeding themselves, and the loss of independent eating can be hard to accept. Our aides understand this and are particularly sensitive, making the extra effort that can turn mealtime into a more enjoyable social time. In addition, senior in home care services help ensure that clients stay on prescribed diets to prevent or control a wide variety of medical conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, or diabetes.
Conversation and Companionship
Our care agents provide clients companionship as part of our senior in home care services, for instance through conversation or when they sit down to share a meal. Social contact such as this is proven to enhance seniors’ health, happiness, and quality of life.
Many seniors do not have the ability to shop for groceries and fix a well-balanced meal. We can prepare hot, delicious, nutritious meals based on their clients’ preferences to help them get the proper nutrition they need. Clients may help with meal preparation as their abilities permit.
Our care providers will tend to the laundry either at their clients’ homes or a laundry facility, and will wash, dry, fold, iron, and put clothing away. We work to ensure that each client’s laundry is done according to his or her preferences.
Our light housekeeping services cover most domestic tasks. Often seniors are able and want to join their caregivers in housework, which can help them feel useful and needed. These tasks include vacuuming, dusting, sweeping and mopping floors, and cleaning bathrooms and kitchens. Please be advised that we do not provide outdoor cleaning or maintenance services.
Your care helper will shop for groceries at the stores their clients prefer and run errands such as picking up prescriptions or going to the post office. Clients may choose to stay home or come along and help with the shopping and errands as an excellent way to stay active and engaged. Your care assistant will use any coupons provided.
Care aides can provide incidental transportation for clients, allowing them the freedom to go shopping and attend other activities or get to medical appointments, the barbershop or beauty salon, and other places the senior chooses. Getting a senior out and about is good for the senior’s mind, body, and spirit and an important part of our care services.
Although we cannot administer medications, they can help ensure that clients take their own medications as prescribed. Our home assistants can assist with opening medication containers, reading labels, and reminding their clients when it is time to take a dose.
24 Hour Home Care
Depending on the client’s needs, we can provide respite care for just a few hours a week or provide full-time, senior in home care services. Through our 24-hour senior care service, our team coordinates caregiving responsibilities in shifts. This offers clients and their families’ full-time peace of mind.
