Around the House
Our caregivers enjoy friendly conversation and companionship when providing care for a fellow senior, as much as, the senior receiving care does. Regular interactions with a kind, friendly caregiver can help lift a senior's spirits and keep them mentally active and engaged.
Our caregivers can assist with light housekeeping services that include cleaning kitchens, dusting, vacuuming, sweeping, mopping, cleaning bathrooms, taking out the trash and recycling, cleaning interior windows that can be reached without a ladder, organizing closets and drawers, and general tidying around the home.
Cooking and Shopping
If you’re only in need of a little help, you and your caregiver can prepare meals as a team, or go to the grocery store together. If you’re in need of more assistance, your caregiver can go to the grocery store and cook meals for you on their own.
Pets can be extremely important to a senior’s mental, emotional, and physical health. Nevertheless, caring for a pet can become more challenging with age. Our caregivers can help ensure that pets are getting the attention they need to stay healthy and happy; by feeding and grooming pets, and taking dogs on walks.
Light Handyman Services and Small Repairs
Our in-home senior care services can include the tackling of simple handyman projects and minor repairs. If a particular service is beyond what our caregiver can handle, they may be able to give some insight on what’s involved and the type of service person to contact.
While fresh air and sunlight can do wonders for a senior’s outlook, too much yard work can become taxing. Our caregivers can assist with mowing, weeding, planting flowers, pruning and other outdoor projects. Seniors can participate to whatever degree they are interested and able.
Mailing Letters and Bills
Staying on top of correspondence becomes more challenging as we age. Our caregivers can help get cards, letters, and bills in the mail as requested by a senior.
Safety and Fall Prevention
Falls can be very serious for seniors. Our caregivers look for potential tripping hazards and other injury risks when they visit a senior’s home, and can make corrections or recommend that a service provider is contacted.
Out and About
Escort to Appointments and Events
Getting out to visit with friends, attend events, or keep appointments is great for a senior’s mental, emotional, and physical health. When a senior is unable to make trips on their own, our caregivers can provide transportation to things like doctor visits, beauty salon or barbershop appointments, social functions, family gatherings, etc.
In addition to grocery shopping, our caregivers can run a variety of errands including dropping off mail at the post office, getting prescriptions and other necessities at the pharmacy, picking up dry cleaning, shopping for pet food, and more. You’re always welcome to ride along if you’d enjoy an easy, enjoyable trip around town!
Outings and Trips
If you are wanting to get out and about for any reason, our caregivers can provide transportation to and from a destination. We can take a trip to a park, catch a movie, enjoy a concert, or even just go on a nice, casual cruise around town.
For family members who live a long distance from their loved one and are unable to visit them often, our caregivers can connect with them on a regular basis to provide updates on a senior’s physical health, cognitive condition, and overall wellness.
Overnight Stays and 24-Hour Care
Our in-home senior care services are available every day of the week, and every hour in the day, even overnight. That includes 24-hour care if needed.
