Time At Home will partner with families to create a detailed plan to determine the optimal amount of time to schedule a Caregiver to meet a Client’s specific needs. This could be one day a week for a few hours, to full-time care. The amount of service can vary depending on the Client’s need for assistance and the availability of family members to provide care.
Professional Caregivers provide the family the peace of mind that their loved one is in excellent professional hands when they cannot be with them.
An additional way to help keep Clients in their home that require more than non-medical services, is for our agency to partner with home health care agencies that can provide skilled care, such as nursing, wound care, physical, occupational and speech therapy, pain management and disease education. This type of care is often needed following a hospital stay.
Caregivers can provide assistance with activities of daily living. Depending on each Client’s abilities and limitations for self-care, an individual care plan can be setup and monitored to see if changes need to made as time goes on. ADLs include such activities as bathing and dressing, eating, talking, meal preparation, using the toilet and moving in and out of a bed or chair, driving, and other activities.
Caregivers can also help the Client with a wide range of activities of daily living (ADL). These include such things as light housekeeping and meal preparation, assisting with medications, shopping and running other errands, transportation to and from social as well as a doctor’s appointment, and other areas that a Client needs help with in order to continue living independently.
In addition to providing Caregivers, our agency can address technology solutions, minor home adjustments (adding a handrail to the tub area) and general information that can make a loved more secure and independent in their own home. These solutions could include devices such as an emergency alert system that can summon help with the push of a button, getting slip resistant rugs, labeling dates on foods, and many other areas that are of concern to the Client or the family.
