Assistance In Home Care provides a managed care model where our office staff routinely communicates with the family, discharge facilities, and Home Healthcare Providers such as Wound Care Providers, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, and Durable Medical Equipment specialists. Our Client Care Coordinators speak to our caregivers everyday to make sure they are prepared and feel comfortable providing care.
With constantly changing medication and the number of pills some doctors prescribe, it is hard to keep track. Our caregivers can not only provide reminders of when to take medication, but also ensure and support the adherence to their medication routines.
Meal planning and preparation is an important step in establishing a healthy lifestyle conducive for longevity. While grocery shopping and preparing a meal, our caregivers take into consideration any dietary restrictions due to chronic illnesses such as diabetes. While maintaining hydration, our caregivers can also provide the companionship that comes with sharing a meal.
Establishing a morning routine that consists of bathing, dressing, hair, nail, and oral care allows for minimal effort to starting a day. Our caregivers often assist with toileting and incontinence care. While providing incontinence care, each caregiver is trained to perform a skin assessment.
During the initial assessment phase, an individualized Care Plan is created to inform the office staff and caregiver of the exact needs. While choosing between our caregivers, our Client Care Coordinators look to match caregivers based on skill set, availability and personality fit. Our Quality Assurance Coordinators specialize in noting any changes to the care plan and assuring that care is being provided as promised.
Whether it is in the client’s car or the caregivers car, our insurance covers it. Caregivers often assist with grocery shopping, picking up medication, driving to doctors appointments, or attending social outings.
Realities of life are constantly changing, especially when there is a fall or a hospital admission. Our multilingual caregivers meet our clients needs, reinforce gentle therapy and routine exercise, encourage healthy sleep patterns, and always respect any religious preferences.
Loneliness and isolation are seen to be more of a risk to people lives than smoking and drinking. Our caregivers enjoy bridging the gap and allowing seniors who may be isolated the opportunity to attend a senior center, activities, and lunches with family and friends. Our caregivers bond with our clients through many activities that may include: arts and crafts, music, movies, cards, board games, dominoes, etc.
Upon the initial assessment, a safety evaluation is performed in order to ensure that the potential client is living in safe conditions and to notify our caregiver of exactly what the daily tasks may be.
