Around the House

Cooking and Shopping Heading Image

Cooking and Shopping

If you’re only in need of a little help, you and your caregiver can prepare meals as a team, or go to the grocery store together. If you’re in need of more assistance, your caregiver can go to the grocery store and cook meals for you on their own.
Assistance with Personal Care Heading Image

Assistance with Personal Care

Our senior care providers are trained in personal care and daily living assistance, meaning that they provide help with eating and drinking, bathing and showering, toileting, dressing, and mobility assistance. Our caregivers take pride in delivering care in a manner that they themselves would desire from a care provider.
Pet Care Heading Image

Pet Care

Pets can be extremely important to a senior’s mental, emotional, and physical health. Nevertheless, caring for a pet can become more challenging with age.

While fresh air and sunlight can do wonders for a senior’s outlook, too much yard work can become taxing. Our caregivers can assist with mowing, weeding, and other outdoor projects. Seniors can participate to whatever degree they are interested and able.

Medication Reminders

Adhering to any medication regimen prescribed by their doctor is extremely important for seniors. While our caregivers do not administer medication, they can provide reminders, read labels, and assist in opening packaging for seniors.

Mailing Letters and Bills

Staying on top of correspondence becomes more challenging as we age. Our caregivers can help get cards, letters, and bills in the mail as requested by a senior.

Safety and Fall Prevention

Falls can be very serious for seniors. Our caregivers look for potential tripping hazards and other injury risks when they visit a senior’s home, and can make corrections or recommend that a service provider is contacted.

Out and About

Escort to Appointments and Events Heading Image

Escort to Appointments and Events

Getting out to visit with friends, attend events, or keep appointments is great for a senior’s mental, emotional, and physical health.

For Family Caregivers

Dementia and Alzheimer's Care Heading Image

Dementia and Alzheimer's Care

Caring for a loved one with memory loss, dementia or Alzheimer’s disease can be very challenging and can result in burnout of even the most devoted family member over time. Our caregivers are trained in how to recognize the different stages of these conditions, manage difficult behaviors, and keep family members and healthcare providers up to date on the senior’s condition.
Long-Distance Check-Ins Heading Image

Long-Distance Check-Ins

For family members who live a long distance from their loved one and are unable to visit them often, our caregivers can connect with them on a regular basis to provide updates on a senior’s physical health, cognitive condition, and overall wellness.
Respite Care Heading Image

Respite Care

Caring for a senior family member is very rewarding, but it can also be mentally and emotionally draining. Taking time away to “recharge” periodically is one of the best things family members can do for their relationship with a senior. Our caregivers can provide intermittent or ongoing respite care, for an afternoon, evening, or for overnight stays.
