CUSTOMIZED CARE PLANS

You create the schedule that meets your family’s needs. Visit lengths range from a few hours to 24 hours per day. Whether it’s an occasional visit, regular visits a few times per week, every day, or overnight care, we can accommodate almost any schedule. While some schedules require more than one caregiver, we strive to have as few caregivers assigned to a client as possible. We feel consistency is an important part of building a strong relationship, and a key component in providing exceptional care. Generally, visits are a minimum of four hours, although we frequently accommodate shorter visits depending upon the circumstances. Please give us a call to discuss your particular situation. Services are provided by either a homemaker or nurse aide and include:

HOMEMAKER/COMPANION

LIVE-IN CARE
Live-in care is a good solution when assistance and companionship are needed around the clock. Live in care can be an alternative to nursing home care in some instances, and allows people to age in place.

How does it work?

Our aide stays in the client’s home for continuous 24-hour shifts (called per diem shifts). We monitor our live-in caregivers with spot checks, reviews, and regular meetings. Typically, to avoid caregiver burnout, and to comply with overtime laws, we have a small team of caregivers alternating 24 hour shifts.

Live-in care is appropriate when:

  • There is a separate bedroom for the caregivers’ use

  • The client generally sleeps through the night

  • The caregiver can be in another room doing household chores part of the day, and the client can be left unattended(with the caregiver in the home)

Live-in services include:

  • Companionship, emotional support and recreational activities

  • Light housekeeping and laundry

  • Bathing and showering

  • Dressing and Grooming

  • Toileting and incontinence care

  • Feeding

  • Mobility – Ambulating, transfers and exercises

  • Transportation to medical appointments, social or religious activities

  • Meal preparation, including special diets

  • Grocery shopping and errands

  • Medication reminders


RESPITE CARE
We can help you take some time for yourself and feel confident your loved one is well cared for. So often, we hear about a family caregiver who is so completely focused on their loved one that they neglect their own physical and emotional health. The demands of providing long-term care are very high. Taking time for yourself is essential to staying healthy, energized, and able to maintain a positive attitude. Whether it’s a week-long vacation or a relaxing afternoon, our experienced, caring staff can provide the respite care the devoted family caregiver needs and deserves.
