I know for a fact that there are few things more important to seniors than being able to live independently in their own homes, to enjoy their retirement and to embrace their golden years.
Senior independence is the primary goal sought by the majority of aging adults. However, physical, mental and emotional limitations can hinder that possibility. In these situations, a compassionate caregiver can make all the difference to seniors striving to remain independent in their homes.
I like to remind people what Home Helpers® is all about and what Home Helpers® can do to support senior independence in Clearwater.
Caregivers provide companion care to keep seniors company when they live alone, keep them engaged in meaningful conversation, and keep them socially active, as much as possible.
Caregivers also manage homemaker services like laundry, light housework, grocery shopping and nutritional meal planning and preparation, which may be too difficult for seniors to manage alone, especially if they suffer with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.
Alzheimer’s and dementia care helps ease the burden with customized home health services to ensure a higher quality of life for you, your loved one, and your entire family.
Specialized care services may also include recuperative care, which may entail support for stroke recovery, or following surgery, broken bones or serious falls.
Additionally, many of the caregivers I employ have experience caring for clients with conditions including Parkinson’s, Down’s syndrome, COPD, and heart disease. To ensure the right care for you or your loved one, Home Helpers provides specialized training for our caregivers, which includes:
- Alzheimer’s and Dementia through the National Certification Board for Alzheimer & Aging Care (NCBAC)
- Parkinson's Training
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
- Intellectual disability (ID)/ Developmental disability (DD)
Home Helpers also offers 24/7 live-In and shift care for those who require overnight assistance.
In-home caregivers can be an answer to transportation woes when age, illness or disability leads to “driving retirement.” Seniors can remain independent and do not have to forego running personal errands, or worry about missing important doctor appointments due to transportation constraints. Caregivers will happily provide seniors with transportation assistance – whatever the need – promptly and safely each and every time.
Wellness calls by Home Helpers® ensure seniors are faring well: they are eating, exercising, staying hydrated and taking their medications properly. Wellness calls may include:
- Morning & Evening Check-in Calls
- Meal Reminders
- Hydration Reminders
- Exercise Reminders
- Medication Reminders
- Companionship with Engagement and Conversation
The Home Helpers Cared-4℠ program is a wake-up/tuck-in service that includes caregiver assistance with a senior’s morning and evening routines and tasks.
Furthermore, Home Helpers can provide respite carefor family caregivers, so can they can take the time they need for their own physical and mental wellness.
Caregivers offer medication reminders, prepare meals & snacks; and assist with personal care, like bathing, dressing and so much more.
A perfectly-matched caregiver can assist with all of these things and more to keep your special senior someone happy, healthy, safe and independent. If any of these services would be of benefit, I gladly offer a FREE Consultation to discuss specific needs and create a personalized care plan to help make life a little easier for you or your senior loved one.
