Continuing to live in the familiar surroundings of your own home is an extremely important and personal decision. Home care support should provide you or your loved one with a sense of freedom, flexibility and safety while offering respectful services to match your lifestyle and budget.
Choosing to have someone come into your home does not mean that they “take over.” The most common type of service will provide support for any area of daily living and is broadly defined as Companion Care. Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s and Dementia are also a part of Companion Care as well as Mobility Assistance and Medication Reminders.
Personal Care provides assistance with hygiene, grooming, bathing, dressing and hair care, while Homemaking includes meal planning and preparation, shopping, cleaning, laundry and running errands.
Transportation Service includes a specific request for an appointment such as a doctor’s visit, physical therapy, dialysis, beauty shop, or just to get out of the house and see the changing colors of the season.
