The Process of Getting Started With Care in Essex County
We have a simple process in place for setting up care, enabling you to approach this task with confidence. Moreover, we offer our expert guidance every step of the way. Here's what you can expect:
- An initial conversation over the phone. Let us know you're interested in care by contacting our office. We can provide you with general information and help you book a more in-depth consultation.
- A consultation free of charge. We will meet with your loved one and the family members most involved in their care. The discussion will cover their daily needs, your family's preferences, and any questions you have.
- Development of a care plan. We'll draw up a care plan customized to your loved one's unique circumstances. This care plan will be built with the help of your input and can be adjusted to accommodate new needs over time.
- Selection of a home care provider. Finally, we'll find the right caregiver for your loved one. We pride ourselves on making excellent matches that take into account seniors' personalities and lifestyle preferences to promote a meaningful relationship.
As you get to know more about our approach to home care, you'll find that we offer different care types to accommodate the many needs elderly adults face in their journey of aging. Below, we've laid out some of the various care programs and adjustable care types we can provide.
Companion Care in Essex County
Sometimes, seniors simply need a shoulder to lean on and someone to talk to. For clients who do not require direct physical support but do need companionship to keep senior isolation at bay, we offer compassionate companion care services.
Personal Care in Essex County
Seniors frequently find it difficult to complete activities that require mobility, balance, strength, and coordination. These activities are often essential to their overall well-being and play an important role in their daily routines. We provide personal care services that can take the form of assistance with getting dressed, bathing, grooming, and general mobility.
As a family caregiver, you may find that some days you feel completely exhausted. If this is becoming increasingly common, you could likely benefit from a much-needed break. When you get started with respite care, you can arrange to have a care professional manage your responsibilities while you take time off for self-care or to handle responsibilities in other areas of your life.
Elderly adults with dementia often face challenging symptoms, risks, and circumstances. However, these challenges shouldn't prevent them from living in the comfort of home. Our dementia care providers offer the specialized assistance seniors need to cope with dementia while remaining in familiar surroundings.
We offer dedicated Alzheimer's care that supports elderly adults throughout the various stages of Alzheimer's disease. We understand that Alzheimer's and dementia are not one and the same, and our Alzheimer's care services address the unique aspects of this disease.
Safe & Steady Fall Prevention
Because falls account for some of the most serious injuries seniors experience, fall prevention is essential to maintaining an independent lifestyle. This program offers personalized home safety tips and fall risk assessments to help seniors stay safe at home.
Ready, Set, Go Home Care
Transitional care focuses on the transition from hospital to home and the recovery process that unfolds after a hospital discharge. Through the Ready, Set, Go Home transitional care program, our caregivers work to minimize clients' risk of readmission so they can continue aging in place for as long as possible.
