Dementia Care

Our caregivers are trained in all the aspects necessary to provide dementia care for your loved one. Our care provider will get to personally know the senior and learn about likes or dislikes or even past events that can or would cause concern for the dementia patient. The goal is to develop a relationship with the senior and prevent any incident that would cause stress for them. Our caregiver can plan activities that will help to stimulate the senior both mentally and physically. These activities that have been shown to cause the brain to be more stimulated which can lead to an increase in lucid thought. Typical activities that we recommend would be where the senior and the care provider listen to music the senior likes, look through old family photos or read a book together.

Stroke Care

Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability in the U.S. today.  the leading cause of adult disability is a stroke. The physical, emotional and behavioral changes after someone has survived a stroke can be difficult for both you and the stroke victim. No one can say with 100% certainty how long the effects will last and if there will be a full recovery. This uncertainty can leave everyone in the This can cause the family to feel helpless, confused and uncertain what the best course of action will be in the days ahead. Typically people in this situation aren’t sure if they need to start looking for a assisted living home for the stroke victim or if they can change their schedules to adapt to their new reality. We feel there is another very good alternative, staying at home and using us either full time or part time giving the stroke victim the time to recover in a environment they are familer with.

24 Hour A Day Care

With 24 hour care patients and family will have peace of mind because they know a trained caregiver is there to help day or night.  24 Hour Care is highly recommended for people with dementia, Alzheimers, people with sever mobility issues, post-operative recovery and healing, hospice care or end of life situations. Our goal is to provide monitoring and attentive compassionate assistance for things like using the restroom or just getting a drink of water. The key here is to use our experience to predict potential needs before the patient even needs assistance.

Overnight Care

In some cases families only need the help at night so they can get some rest. Overnight care gives the caregiver a chance to get a good nights sleep so they will be well rested and ready to assume the caregiver funcion during the day. Of course we are flexible on our scheduling and if it works better for you those time periods can be reversed.

Sleep Over Care

When the patient does not need round-the-clock surveillance but still needs someone there to help, sleep over care is a good option. Caregivers are provided with a place to sleep, and stay with your loved one for a few days at a time.

Live-In Care

This is when a fully trained caregiver lives full time with you in your own home. These caregivers will be supporting the patient with their day-to-day needs and even be able to respond to needs that occur at night. In lots of cases live-in care allows an individual to maintain their independence and thereby avoid moving into a residential care home.

Meal Preparation

Unfortunately one of the first things that seniors with challenges in their life will start to let slide is the preparation of nutritious meals. This can lead to malnutrition and further health challenges. We encourage you to consider using us for not only meal preparation but nutritious meal planning as well. As we age the body often stops functioning as efficiently as it did when we were young so it is critical to eat even healthier as we age than we did when we were young.

Shopping

Healthy eating depends on having the food to begin with. Once we help put a meal plan in place we use that information for our shopping list. We can either do the shopping by ourselves or if your loved one is mobile enough they can go along to help, it is often good for the individual to get out of the house from time to time. Having the individual with us can also help in the meal planning because as we pass food on the shelves they often see things that they have had in the past and enjoyed. Getting the individual involved in the planning process is another way of stimulating the brain which for diseases like Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Parkinson’s or even stroke vicims can be helpful for the individual.

Light Housekeeping

We are committed to maintaining a clean and safe home for our clients. Lets face it housekeeping is not fun and seniors sometimes just need a little extra help keeping their home clean and safe. When you are at this point in life, house work often becomes a real chore, so let us help.

Companionship For Seniors

We believe that no senior should ever feel left alone, our caregivers can provide a needed companion for a senior who lives alone, or is left alone for the day. Our caregivers will provide healthy social interaction which is an essential requirement for a seniors mental health and even physical health. We will spend time reading, helping them with Facebook or playing games. In our experience we have seen several cases where  seniors have taken up old hobbies and interests once a caregiver started working in the home.

Transportation To Appointments

When seniors lose the ability to drive on their own it often means they lose their independence, but this doesn't mean they can't get out and do the things they once did. We help give seniors back the ability to get out of the house, and allow them to maintain their independence by providing transportation assistance.
