Personal Assistance Care Services
“My caregiver does things for me that I cannot do for myself, like shopping and changing my bed.”
We recognize that some every day and regular activities are hard to manage alone. Our services are available 24-hours a day or part-time to offer you as much assistance as you desire or need.
Personal assistance services are intended to provide help with several aspects of living independently.We will create a personalized plan based on the services you select. Your plan can be expanded as needed and will always be tailored to meet your individual needs.
Taking your medications on time is important for your health and well-being. We understand that medication can be easy to forget though. Our caregivers can keep track of the medications you have taken and remind you when it’s time to take them again. They can also record when you take medication for your doctors, family members, or personal benefit.
Monitoring Intake and Output
Depending on your diet and your health needs, it may be important to monitor your dietary intake. You may also need to keep track of bodily output, such as frequency of urination.
Having records of this type of information can help lead to improvements in your quality of life. It can also be useful to medical professionals seeking to create health plans for you. Caregivers can monitor and record this information for you on a regular basis.
Transportation to and from Appointments
Getting to and from appointments or even social activities can be a challenge. Caregivers can serve as personal drivers. They can get you where you need to go without the hassle of public transportation. Further, caregivers can remind you of appointments you have scheduled to make sure you are on time.
Ambulation and Mobility
Whether you require assistance getting into and out of chairs or have trouble moving around your home safely, caregivers can offer you support. Since caregiver services can be scheduled part-time or full-time, we will work with you if you only need ambulation assistance at certain times of the day. Likewise, full-time services are available if you would like the peace of mind that comes from having a caregiver in your home when you are moving around throughout the day.
Keeping All the Family Involved
We make keeping in touch with your loved one’s care easy for you, even if you live far away. Each of our clients’ care is assigned to their own personal Client Care Manager who will work together with clients and families on schedules and changes to the care plan. The Care Manager will take care of the day-to-day details and make sure that things don’t fall through the cracks. We also provide a variety of ways to stay in touch based on your personal preference. Some families like emails and texts, others like a quick phone call. We also offer a family room portal that gives you a high tech way to stay in touch. Whatever your choice, you will have personal attention given to provide the best care possible!
How to Get Started
Our Caregivers Come From Diverse Backgrounds
“I have always had a big heart for both animals and people. When I was 16 years old, I began caring for an elderly woman, who once cared for me when I was younger. It felt rewarding and I knew helping others would be my calling. Funny how life comes full circle.”
-Billie Jo, Cherished Companion since 2012
