Personal hygiene affects well-being. By offering personal services such as bathing, dressing and grooming, we help maintain independence and dignity.
Good nutrition is a key to good health. We plan and prepare balanced meals and provide companionship at meal time. We also make sure that the memory impaired receive consistent, nutritional meals.
Straightening and tidying the home is reassuring for those unable to perform these routine tasks. We can help with: bed making/linen changing; laundry; cleanup and tidying around the house.
Errands and Local Transportation
Even a short break can make home seem that much more welcoming upon return. Our caregivers can help with transportation to medical appointments and mini outings to the hair salon or to visit family and friends.
Mobility and Exercise Management
Safety around the home is paramount. Our caregivers ensure a safe environment for getting around the house. We also encourage an appropriate level of physical activity to maintain physical and mental well-being.
Companionship and socialization
Loneliness can be physically and mentally debilitating. In addition to being professionally trained, our caregivers provide valuable companionship and socialization for house-bound individuals.
Taking medications can be overwhelming. Through our Medication Management Program, a nurse organizes and prefills medications so that they’re easy to remember and take. We ensure there’s always medication on hand, order necessary refills and monitor medication response.
Wellness and Health Maintenance
The daily responsibilities of tending to a sick, disabled or post-operative family member can be overwhelming. Through our Wellness Program, our nurses can provide preventive care in the home. With health maintenance as a common goal we review medications and current health status, check vital signs and interact with the family physician or specialist whenever needed.
