Home Care is Often the Answer

When your elderly or disabled loved one with challenging health issues needs some degree of care and yet wants the independence and comfort of efficiently and safely staying in his or her own home, a customized and cost effective service plan can be created to meet the specific personal needs of that individual.

Beginning with a complimentary consultation to assess the needs, the person will then be matched with a compassionate and compatible caregiver who will be dedicated to caring for that loved one. If the medical condition advances in the future, care can also be provided in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, or hospitals.

Non-Medical Home Care

A typical non-medical client is someone who requires supportive services and supervision of daily activities because of physical disability, mental deficiency, or advanced age. This type of assistance requires no medical intervention but helps with daily living activities such as bathing, toileting, dressing, preparing and serving meals, reminders to take medications, doing light housekeeping and laundry, help with walking, transferring into and out of a bed or chair if needed, encouraging exercise if possible, kitchen and bathroom cleaning, giving transportation to errands and appointments, and other similar chores.

Skilled Home Care

This assistance with medical or therapeutic intervention is normally required by someone who has chronic ailments or disabilities or is recovering from an injury, surgery, or an illness. Professionally- trained personnel include certified Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical and Vocational Nurses, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, and Speech Therapists.

They will work with the client by administrating medications and pain management, developing and attempting to restore physical functioning and ability to do everyday activities, doing wound care, conducting blood draws and home infusion services, monitoring the health status, aid in recovering swallowing ability and communication skills, and other such activities.
