Home Care Services
Senior Care and Companionship
Older adults who feel lonely are at greater risk of inactivity and related health problems. Leading a solitary life can make it tough to feel motivated to prepare a healthy meal, tidy the home, or do physical therapy exercises.
With conversation and company, the activities of daily living (including dressing, toileting, light housework, meal preparation, and getting around) are less of a chore. Our experienced caregivers provide the highest level of senior care and companionship to your aging loved one.
Care for People with Disabilities
Caring for individuals with acute or chronic conditions—whether caused by accident or medical condition—can be a special challenge for families. In-home disability care is often a vital part of the support system for people with disabilities.
Our professional caregivers can assist your loved one with basic actions and activities that may be impossible for them on their own. With flexible availability and personalized care management, our team can help people live as independently as possible.
Care for Adults with Cognitive and Memory Impairment
People with cognitive impairments like Alzheimer’s and other dementias require special care. Families often need round-the-clock supervision of their loved one or help managing difficult behavior, in addition to assistance with the activities of daily life.
Our trained caregivers have the patience and flexibility to help reduce frustration and manage daily tasks to the fullest extent possible. They can help reinforce family routines as well as be another set of eyes watching for changes in behavior.
Recovery from Illness/Surgery Care
Recovering after an illness or medical procedure isn’t easy. Discharge plans may advise extended rest, physical therapy, no driving, or any number of conditions that make daily life more difficult.
Every situation is different, but making the best possible recovery means following doctor’s orders as closely as possible. Recovery care that includes an experienced caregiver as part of the process can help during both short and long recuperations.
Family Caregiver Relief (Respite Care)
Respite care is temporary relief from the demanding duties of caring for a loved one who needs constant, monitored care. Family caregivers who are burned out often feel tired, moody, anxious, depressed, and stressed. Respite care is designed to give you time to recharge your batteries while someone you trust looks after your loved one.
Whether you need a three hour break every day or 24 hours off once a week, respite care can help you get the rest and time off that you need to do your best as a family caregiver.
