For many elderly people entering a new period of life, the prospect of having an unfamiliar caregiver come into their house and provide “care” can be vague. Today’s post will be aimed at putting to bed some of the questions and perhaps fears associated with senior assisted in-home care. Let’s take a look at some of our services offered.
Home healthcare is a fairly straightforward concept. Obviously we aren’t trained medical professionals, but we are able to help our clients out with their daily medications and the like.
Hourly & 24/7 Care
We are proud to offer round the clock care for our clients. If you or your loved one is looking for specialized care and have a unique schedule, we can handle that.
Personal Care & Dressing
Our seniors on staff are trained to make potentially uncomfortable situations light and easy. We are intent on preserving our client’s dignity in all that we do. Personal Care and dressing our clients is just one example of this commitment.
Alzheimer's & Dementia Care.
This can be a very challenging situation to deal with, especially without professional in-home care for your senior. There are emotional struggles to deal with in addition to cognitive changes. For more information, visit our Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care page.
Our scope of care isn’t exclusively limited to physical needs. Caretaking involves mental and emotional care as well. The best part is our seniors on staff love what they do, and look forward to spending time with their clients.
If you or your older adult are in need of transportation services, we have you covered. Our seniors on staff are experienced, defensive drivers who will do their best to keep all passengers comfortable and safe.
If you are looking for a short-term caregiving program, Seniors Helping Seniors offers respite care services as well. We do our best to customize our approach to fit your needs.
Nutrition is invaluable, and is one of the first aspects of self-care that we typically see suffer. Our staff will cater their dishes to the desires of your loved one, so they stay well nourished while enjoying what they consume as well.
We are more than happy to provide some mild to moderate housekeeping in our client’s homes. We want them to feel at ease in their own homes. And if they want to entertain guests then this is one more item you and yours can check off your list.
Snow shoveling? Leaf gathering? Lawn mowing? Weed wacking? While we aren’t a landscaping service, we can help with some light yard work tasks, as long our backs and knees aren’t acting up on us too much- we aren’t as young as we used to be either!
In the same vein as home health care, we can help with these medication reminders that your loved one could use some assistance with. Call us for the specifics of your situation and we will develop a plan just for you and yours.
House Maintenance & Small Repairs
Our staff members didn’t spend their entire lives on their smartphones, so we actually are fairly capable when it comes to being handy around the house. We aren’t contractors though!
End-of Life Care and Transitional Care
If you are seeking an end of life care program, or perhaps your loved one is going through some dramatic changes with which they could use some help, please utilize our services to their full capacity.
There are certain circumstances which limit the amount of contact you are able to have with your senior. If this is the case we can provide check-ins while you are indisposed.
If the older adult in your life has pets that they are struggling to take care of, we can help as part of our in-home assisted living program.
There are moments in life where we all could use the comfort and wisdom of a minister. You have the option of having a chaplain come and visit with you as part of our in home care program.
