Home is the one place that most of us feel safe and independent. That can ring especially true for seniors, and each one of our caregivers knows that.

Breakdown of Senior Home Care Services
Personal Care: Your caregiver can provide you or a loved one with assistance in bathing, dressing, eating, incontinence care, medication reminders, oral hygiene, walking and personal mobility, transferring to and from chair, bed, or wheelchair, toileting, and other home senior care services tailored to meet individual needs.
These are all things that we take for granted every day, but for some people that have a hard time with mobility, they can all be quite challenging. Our caregivers are patient and will be there to help your loved one through these activities, all the while making sure that they are safe from an unexpected slip or fall.
Meal Preparation: Overall health and well-being can be improved by ensuring your loved one is receiving healthy, well-balanced meals. In addition to tasting better, nutritious meals play an important role in maintaining good health.
Furthermore, if your loved one has special dietary restrictions, we can make sure that they are adhered to. This includes things like a diet for Diabetes, allergies, gluten free options, and more. It is not always clear which foods contain ingredients that could be harmful to those with dietary restrictions. Our caregivers will make sure that your loved one is taken care of.
An Assisting Hands® caregiver in Shawnee Hills OH, who possess or is certified as a State Tested Nursing Aide (STNA), Personal Care Assistant (PCA), Home Health Aide (HHA), or a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), can perform everything from grocery shopping to preparing meals in accordance with any special diet, to serving the meal, providing eating assistance and cleaning up afterwards. Just let us know your situation and we will provide tailored services to your individual needs.
Grocery Shopping: Your caregiver can provide you or a loved one with assistance in grocery shopping, picking up prescriptions, organizing incoming mail and going to the post office, and any routine personal errands you or a loved one might require.
For a lot of elderly people, the simple act of leaving the house to run errands can be a monumental proposition. With the help of our caregivers, you will not have to worry about your loved one going without food, or the bills not getting paid, because they are unable to leave the house that day. Also, you will not have to worry about your elderly loved one driving on their own, as we can do that for them too.
Light Housekeeping: Your caregiver can provide you or a loved one with in home senior care like vacuuming, washing dishes, laundry, dusting, bed making, sweeping, mopping floors, taking out the trash, and any other light housekeeping items you or a loved one might require. Let us know your situation and we will provide tailored services to your individual needs.
Keeping the house in order is a great way for your loved one to feel like things have not drastically changed in their lives. In addition to that, being inattentive to housekeeping duties can lead to airborne particles that could be very hurtful if they are breathed into our lungs. If nothing is being cleaned, dust, mold, pet dander, and other harmful particles can enter the airway. Our caregivers will make sure that this does not happen.
Companionship: Your caregiver can assist you or your loved one with recreational activities or hobbies, or just provide good company for a game of cards or a nice chat!
It might seem like a little thing, but you might be surprised at how simple companionship can help improve the life of your loved one. Just like many other facets of our lives, our brains need to be stimulated in order to function properly. Through engaging conversation, or participation in beloved activities, your loved one will get the stimulation that they need.
Home Health Care Providers for You
