“To care for those who once cared for us is one of the highest honors.”
– Tia Walker
Here are some of the Services we provide
Most seniors have certain dietary restrictions that require regularly scheduled healthy meals. Taste buds and palates weaken as people get older to compensate for diminished tastes seniors often consume a large amount of salty or sweet foods.
Seniors energy levels diminish from their younger years vision impairment is also an issue. The simple task of laundry can wipe the energy from a senior.
Impaired vision and lower energy levels often make light housekeeping a low priority. The light housekeeping services we provide are intended to keep the home tidy (not provided a deep cleaning of the home) Care provider can help coordinate and oversee the supervision of a professional home cleaning service for more thorough house cleaning.
Working children aren’t able to visit as often or even at all so some seniors can become isolated at home is support systems aren’t put in place. Depression can isolate them even more. Care providers can help bring seniors into the community by accompanying them to a movie, taking them to visit other friends, driving them to church, going to the library, and accompanying them to other activities.
Shopping, Errands & Incidental Transport
Care providers assist seniors by running errands such as going to the post office or grocery store. Many seniors have diminishing eyesight and are no longer (or should no longer be) driving. Care providers assist by providing the necessary transportation for their activities.
Examples: Doctors appointments, hair appointments, picking up medication, escorting them to church, and other social activities.
Forgetting to take medications, taking the wrong medication, or taking extra doses because they forgot if they took it earlier can be harmful. Care providers assist with self-administered medications by reminding seniors it’s time to take them.
Note: Care providers DO NOT administer or touch the medication.
One of the greatest risks of falls occurs in the shower. Seniors may bathe less often than before because they fear falling or have less energy, have imfeired memory or simply don’t care anymore. Buttons ad zippers are difficult to fasten diminished use of hands and fingers make dressing more difficult. A compassionate care provider can assist with these tasks while boosting the senior’s self-esteem in the process.
