Getting Started with Home Care Process in Briar Forest

Nothing matters more to our care professionals than the comfort, safety, and quality of life of our clients. To ensure your loved one, and your family, receives the right support at the right time, we'll take you through the following steps to get started:

  • Initial contact - Call us and we can begin by discussing the basic details of your care needs. We'll explain how our home care services work, your scheduling options, and our rates. From there, we can set up an in-depth consultation to talk more.
  • In-home evaluation - To understand the full context of your loved one's care, we'll conduct an in-home evaluation. Our care professionals will assess your loved one's physical and cognitive abilities, ask about their routine and preferences, and answer any questions your family may have. 
  • Plan drafting - With your family's help, we'll establish a personalized care plan for your relative to provide the greatest possible benefits. This includes a customized care schedule, as our care is available at any time, day or night. 

More About Our Home Care Services

We offer a wide range of services to our clients. Below we will cover the various types of care and how they can provide the support your family needs. Care services can be combined from some or all of these types of care.

Companion Care Services

Social isolation can accelerate physical and cognitive decline among seniors. To promote your loved one's overall well-being at home, we offer companion care as one of our home care services in Briar Forest.

Our caregivers can visit your loved one regularly and take them on outings to help them stay engaged with the outside world. We can even help them feel more comfortable with video chat and other connectivity tools through our complementary social care program. 

Personal Care Services

When someone dear to you can no longer handle basic daily activities like bathing, cooking, or walking up and down the stairs, our caregivers can be there to lend a helping hand. Our personal care is a core part of our home care in Briar Forest. It includes day-to-day support with the following:

  • Using the restroom, bathing, and dressing
  • Running outside errands and grocery shopping
  • Offering reminders to take prescribed medication
  • Planning out and cooking healthy meals
  • Providing assistance while walking and transferring
  • Doing laundry, changing sheets, and performing other basic chores

Alzheimer's Care and Dementia Care Services

Our home care options include Alzheimer's and dementia care for seniors who are experiencing cognitive decline. If your loved one is experiencing memory loss, disorientation, and other symptoms, we can monitor their day-to-day condition and make sure their needs are being met.

Our caregivers can prepare your loved one's meals, remind them about appointments and medication, monitor them to prevent wandering, and keep them more mentally engaged throughout the day.  

End of Life Care

Saying goodbyes is never easy, but our care professionals can give your family the gift of togetherness throughout your loved one's end of life transition. Our care includes compassionate End of Life Care for individuals in the final stages of a terminal illness. Our goal is to make them as comfortable as possible, while enabling your family to spend this precious time together. 

Palliative Care

If you or someone in your family has been diagnosed with a serious health issue, we can provide some relief. Our holistic Palliative Care includes physical, spiritual, cognitive, and emotional support to help you feel more hopeful throughout treatment. 

Respite Care

To care for your loved one, you need to take care of yourself. Unfortunately, it's easy to overlook your own needs when you're so focused on your family member.

With respite care, you can take time away from your caregiving responsibilities without guilt while our caregivers look after your loved one. Then, you can return to your role more refreshed and ready to take on the next challenge. 

Ready-Set-Go Home Program

Hospital readmission rates are particularly high among seniors, especially within the first month of returning home. We address this issue with our Ready-Set-Go Home program.

Through this program, we can advocate for your family at the hospital and help you ask all the essential questions about follow-up care. Then, we can help your loved one transition home safely and provide the care they need to heal.

Safe & Steady Fall Prevention Program

Every year, falls account for more injuries among seniors than any other cause. We can help protect your loved one by identifying their personal risk factors, assisting with walking and other difficult tasks, and suggesting safety modifications to their home.
