Personal Care Assistant, also known as Caregivers, Personal Care Attendants (PCA), Homemakers, or Companions, assist with the daily tasks of elderly, mentally disabled, chronically ill, or physically challenged clients, as well as hospice patients and those in various stages of rehabilitation or recovery.
Keeping a household running is an important job that might be neglected. The services of a homemaker can be an enormous relief for a family by freeing time for other responsibilities. Our homemakers take care of household duties, including essential shopping, light housekeeping, laundry, and meal preparation. If needed, non-medical personal care assistance may also be provided.
Social isolation can be a difficult aspect of staying at home. Companions help relieve loneliness by providing social contact through visits and phone calls. Sometimes, the presence of another person is just what someone needs to feel comfortable. A companion engages a person in social interaction, such as conversation, reading, and playing games.
Continuing to monitor care after release from a facility is crucial for a full recovery. Our caregivers help clients who require extra assistance after a hospital discharge, including around-the-clock care if needed. With hospital-to-home transition care, our caregivers can provide transportation, assist in meal preparation, help run errands, follow discharge plans from medical facilities, provide medication reminders, help with light housekeeping and assist with other non-medical home care services.
Geriatric Care Guidance is the process of planning and coordinating care of the elderly and others with physical and/or mental impairments to meet their long term care needs, improve their quality of life, and maintain their independence for as long as possible. It entails working with the elderly and their families in managing, rendering and referring various types of health and social care services.
We work closely with individuals and families to apply for Medicaid along with connecting them with The Southwestern Connecticut Agency on Aging (SWCAA)*.
*The Southwestern Connecticut Agency on Aging (SWCAA) is a private, not-for-profit corporation, established in 1974. As a designated Area Agency on Aging, according to the Older Americans Act of 1965, as amended, SWCAA is a funding source for federal and state dollars for the elderly in the fourteen town region of southwestern Connecticut.
As your loved ones age, they may face frailty, memory loss or chronic diseases and lose their independence over time. Everyday tasks such as cooking, running errands or bathing can become increasingly difficult. Ultimately, the goal is to maintain their safety and well being, while simultaneously preserving their independence. Whatever the case may be, it’s always a good idea to review some of these warning signs so that you have a plan in place – just in case.
True to our name, we strive to provide quality service with cheer, care and compassion.
Many factors are taken in consideration when selecting a caregiver. Personalities and interests plays a big part. Once your customized Care Plan has been developed, the most appropriate caregiver will be selected and assigned to deliver optimum care.
As part of our intake process with clients, we will conduct a screening to determine which mode of communication and support best suit the client; this preferred communication screening tool will also be utilized with caregivers to ensure caregivers/clients matching appropriate.
Health, Security & Independence
A Proactive Approach to Care
Whether live-in or live-out, in-home care is literally the difference between remaining in their own homes and needing to relocate to a nursing facility. We eliminate two of the biggest threats of aging: isolation and loss of independence. Research proves that when seniors have the right support, they gain greater quality of life, need fewer hospital stays and live longer.
