How Our Home Care Process Works
To build a care plan that fits your family, our care team needs to learn more about your unique care scenario. We'll guide you through the following steps to introduce you to our services and map out your care needs:
- An initial conversation where you can describe your situation, learn about our services, and go over the costs of care.
- A thorough assessment where we meet with your loved one and relevant family members to learn more about your specific care needs.
- A plan-building process where we create a custom care plan and schedule to provide the most effective and meaningful support.
- A caregiver selection where we identify the most suitable care professional in terms of personality, ability, and availability.
What is Companion Care?
It's common for our social circles to shrink as we get older. For seniors, though, this increasing isolation can pose real risks for their health and quality of life. As part of our home care service, our friendly caregivers can provide regular companionship to keep your relative engaged.
What is Personal Care?
Concerned that your loved one can't manage routine tasks at home? We can be there in the moments when you can't be. Depending on your loved one's particular needs and preferences, our caregivers can help with the following personal care tasks:
- Planning out and preparing healthy meals
- Running errands and buying groceries
- Tidying up around the home
- Assisting with bathing and dressing
- Providing support when walking and transferring
- Giving reminders for medications and appointments
How Respite Care Helps Family Caregivers
If you're feeling overwhelmed by your caregiving duties, you're far from alone. We provide respite care, so family caregivers can take the time they need to rest, address other parts of their lives, and feel replenished.
What is Social Care?
Through our social care program, our care professionals can teach your relative how to use video chat, social media, and other online tools to stay connected with friends and family from afar.
End of Life Care Provides Meaningful Support at a Difficult Time
If someone you love is in the final stages of a terminal illness or the end-of-life transition, we can promote their comfort and give you the chance to treasure the time that remains. As part of our end-of-life care, we can keep your loved one as comfortable as possible and take on any routine tasks that your family requires.
