Grooming and Hygiene There have been numerous studies that show this improves not only physical health, but also mental and emotional health.
Conversation and companionship People who stay social and cognitively engaged have a better quality of life in areas such as lowering the tendency to develop depression and a general cognitive decline. Pet Care Our Caregivers can take your dogs for short “potty break” walks. They can also empty cat litter pans. If appropriate Caregivers can provide “light” brushing (NOT full grooming) for your pets.
Remaining active in your own home is one of the best ways to maintain the quality of life. Our Caregivers help seniors participate in life to the fullest of their physical and cognitive abilities by assisting them in various ways such as: doctors’ appointments, shopping (malls and grocery), outdoor activities, walking pets, haircare/nail/other appointments, church/socials/ visiting friends or family, pharmacy or other errands. Clients also have the option of having the Caregiver do their errands for them, without having to leave the comfort of their own home.
Sometimes Clients struggle to keep up with daily tasks. Maintaining a healthy, nutritious diet can impact physical and cognitive health. Many seniors have prescribed meal plans they must adhere to for health reasons such as: Heart Disease, Diabetes, and Osteoporosis. Our Caregivers can assist with meal preparation, shopping for food, and cleanup after the meal. Caregivers can provide hot, healthy and nutritional meals to keep Clients as engaged and healthy as possible.
Our Caregivers can help with adhering to a special diet or improving nutritional intake, assisting with eating if needed. They can also promote or help restrict fluids, depending on the client’s needs. This can promote disease prevention, healing, and healthy living. Caregivers can turn meals into social time by engaging with seniors while they eat. Clients are welcome to work together with Caregivers, this is another form of engagement and allows Clients to have control over their meals.
Having a positive social and physical environment helps Clients feel more relaxed. Caregivers can also encourage Clients to eat more of the meals and improve nutritional intake if needed.
One of our top priorities is helping our Clients move around their homes and keeping their physical activity as strong as possible. We can help with: getting in and out of bed, using a wheel chair, canes, crutches, walker, or just moving from bed to chair or back again. This can be done using a wheelchair, walker, transfer board. Safe and dignified transferring of our clients and correct positioning not only help with muscle atrophy, breathing and digestion, but also can contribute to reducing bedsore risks. By keeping our clients active and safe it will help lower the risk of falls and injuries, as well as keeping an eye on our Clients range of motion to keep them as comfortable and active as possible.
Time At Home’s goal is to assist our Clients with their personal care routines so they can not only maintain a healthier lifestyle, but also look and feel their best. There have been numerous studies that show how that this improves physical health, but also mental and emotional health. For our Clients who fear that they may fall while bathing or have physical or cognitive limitations that make grooming time difficult, our Caregivers are there to help. We can assist with Oral hygiene (dentures too!) haircare, shaving (with an electric shaver), bathing (bathtub, shower and bedside), skincare (lotion and reporting any skin breakdown) and other grooming needs.
The subject of bathroom and incontinence care is a very sensitive subject. It is our goal to approach this care with compassion wrapped with dignity. By helping with areas such as toileting, incontinence, and general hygiene, we can keep our Clients from facing current issues as well as future issues such as skin conditions, body odor, and worry over not being able to keep current on general hygiene by themselves.
People who stay social and cognitively engaged have a better quality of life in areas such as: lowering the tendency to develop depression and a general cognitive decline. As our Caregivers help with meals, mobility, transportation they will engage with Clients to help keep clients engaged and as social as possible.
Caregivers cannot administer medications; however, they can assist in ensuring that Clients take their medication as prescribed. Our Caregivers can help with opening medication containers, reading labels, and reminding the Client when it is time for the next dose. In addition to picking up prescriptions at the pharmacy.
Our Caregivers can provide light housekeeping upon specific requests. Our services include: vacuuming, dusting, sweeping, mopping, cleaning bathrooms (sinks, tubs, showers, and toilets), cleaning and disinfecting kitchens (sinks, appliances, counters, and taking out the trash), refrigerators, cleaning and organizing all rooms, organizing closets and drawers, and cleaning any interior windows reachable without a ladder.
Our Caregivers can take care of all laundry needs. This can include bed linens, towels, clothing or other items needing cleaning. If there is no washer/dryer in the home or building the Caregiver can take laundry to a nearby laundromat. These services may include washing, drying, ironing, and putting clean laundry away, and making the bed. Additional charges may apply for off-site laundry services.
Our Caregivers can help with the daily routine of pet care.
