Over the last couple of decades, it has become much more common for senior citizens to choose to live in their own homes instead of leaving for an assisted living community or retirement home. Many seniors have spent their adult lives working for their homes and they want to remain in their homes through retirement to live in a comfortable atmosphere and maintain some independence. However, most seniors will eventually need some type of assistance to live at home, whether they need help with chores around the house or help with self-care due to chronic conditions or mental and physical limitations. When seniors reach this point, home care is a great option.

Light Housekeeping and Chores
Certain chores around the house can be quite difficult for those with mobility issues. Our caregivers will keep the home in good shape by taking care of light housekeeping activities including dusting, sweeping, vacuuming, laundry, and others.
Grocery Shopping and Meal Preparation
It may be difficult for some seniors to make their own meals and if they don’t, they may not get the nutrition they need.

Care for Dementia and Alzheimer’s Patients
Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia are degenerative cognitive diseases and those affected require constant care. It is best for those affected by these diseases to receive care in their homes in their familiar surroundings. Our caregivers are specially trained to care for those with Alzheimer’s and dementia. We can help temper the mood swings and agitation that are common among those with these conditions and slow their memory loss with engaging memory exercises.

We can provide care for those who need help 24 hours a day with our live-in and 24-hour care services. With our live-in care services, a caregiver lives in the home with your loved one for 3-4 days at a time but requires time at night to sleep. With our 24-hour care services, two caregivers will alternate every 12 hours and stay awake their entire shifts.
