Just Enough Personal Assistance
Some seniors can stay at home if they just have some help in specific areas affected by their limitations or disabilities. They do not require a caregiver, per se. Instead, what they prefer is a conscientious, alert companion who builds their confidence, keeps a watchful eye, and fills in where and when needed.
Our Domestic Companion program provides an experienced, personal assistant who knows when to allow a senior to do for themselves and when to offer assistance. Common responsibilities include:
Helping Around The House & With Chores
Shopping With (Or For) A Senior
Driving To Appointments & Social Commitments
Assisting With (Or Preparing) Delicious Meals
Keeping Company During A Hospital/Facility Stay
And We Do The Laundry Too!!!
Our Personal Care Companion programs combines our Domestic Companion service with an in home caregiver that is experienced in assisting seniors with their activities of daily living. These self-care tasks include:
Dressing & Grooming
Bathing & Hygiene
Using The Toilet
Continence (Urinary and/or Bowel Control)
Mobility & Transferring
We Provide Comfort & Care
For those with a terminal illness we team up with medical organizations and professionals on the hospice care team. This program focuses on "palliative" care. The theory is to treat the person, not the incurable disease. We aim to enhance the person’s comfort and improve the quality of their remaining days; with a personal approach.
It Takes A Village
The hospice team puts together a care plan that is specific to the needs of the person. Our staff helps to implement that plan, under the guidance of the appropriate healthcare professional.
Here are some of the major responsibilities that guide their plan:
Manage the pain.
Manage the symptoms.
Train and coach family members on how to care for their loved one.
Provide therapies. (Speech therapy, etc.)
Provide medications and medical supplies.
Assist with the psychosocial, emotional and spiritual aspects of dying.
Provide bereavement counseling to the survivors.
