Senior Care

 

Sometimes asking for help is the bravest move you can make. You don’t have to go it alone!”  ~ Author unknown

If you or your loved one finds it difficult living at home, and struggle to accomplish the basic necessities of life like cooking, cleaning, laundry or even personal hygiene, isn’t it good to know there are people who want to help? 

Our caregivers love helping and supporting others with those day to day needs. Things many of us take for granted. However, they do even more without you ever having to ask. They encourage you to eat healthy and exercise; they will work alongside you to assist with meal preparations; shop with or for you, whatever it is you want help with, they are there for you.

And due to our caregivers friendly and caring nature most times they become a companion or even friend, someone you look forward to seeing on a regular basis.

Senior Care

When seniors find it is too difficult to live at home, no matter their reasons, we are available to care for them either in a retirement home, long-term care facility or hospital and we provide the best senior care.

Our “free” consult and Personal Assessment help us to determine our senior client’s healthcare needs and requirements. Once we identify their basic daily needs such as dressing, hygiene, meals (see our Personal care Services) we may also find that they need additional detailed attention and care due to serious health issues. This will determine the type of healthcare professional we assign to look after the client.

Peace of Mind & Comfort!

Sometimes seniors want or need someone to help them with things like getting in and out of bed or getting up from a chair or couch. Some just want someone to talk to or feel the need of someone being there for safety reasons. See our “Companionship Services” for further information.

Your Senior Care plan can include:

  • Reminder to take medication
  • house cleaning
  • meal preparation
  • wound care and bandage changing
  • foot care
  • palliative care
  • Run errands
  • Companionship

If you or your loved one struggles with cooking, shopping, or housekeeping on their own, our PSW’s can provide you with the support you need or desire. 

For most of us, it’s not easy to ask for help. It may take time to accept that help is needed so, be patient with yourself and your loved ones. Take all the time you need to make your decision, we will still be here!
