Services We Offer
If you are looking for home care assistance in Upper Arlington OH, look no further than Assisting Hands. We have knowledgeable caregivers who understand just how important it is to not only provide care, but to provide the right care for the individual’s needs and circumstances. Our home care professional services include many different options, so one or more of them should be perfect for your needs. We offer:
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 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 Upper Arlington 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 services such as 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.
Fall Prevention: Did you know that people over the age of 65 fall more often than any other age group? Once a fall takes place, another fall will often happen soon after. Our elderly home care team can advise you on how to make your home a safer place, by reducing the likelihood of falls occurring. Our professional health experts will come out to your home and show you ways to make living there safer. Handrails, grab bars, throw rugs, floors, lighting, shoes, ladders, and the use of all medications will be discussed, and we can help implement changes.
Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care: Anyone can begin to show signs of dementia the older they get. There are different types of dementia, with Alzheimer’s being the most common. All of them involve memory loss, impaired focus, and difficulty living at home. If a diagnosis comes your way, we are here to help you. Our Upper Arlington team provides in-home care for Alzheimer’s and dementia care, keeping your loved one safe and secure at home, while providing them with daily assistance, socialization and stimulation.
What Our Caregivers Do
Our in-home caregivers are specifically trained in all things having to do with home care assistance. Do not rely
on a friend of a friend or a neighbor to know what to do for a loved one. Their intentions might be good, but there is a lot to know about assisting someone with non-medical health needs at home.
Our team of in-home caregivers at Assisting Hands have been trained in all aspects of elderly home care. They know what to look for and how to address the needs and desires of your loved one. They have passed extensive background checks and are insured, bonded and know CPR. Best of all, you can help to choose your caregiver from those who are readily available in the Upper Arlington area, and they can be at your home within 48 hours of that initial phone call.
When a member of your family is in need of in-home care assistance, we want you to know that our team of caregivers are there to take care of their needs right now. Growing older does not have to be lonely, and all seniors deserve being treated with dignity and respect. When you want patient and compassionate care, look no further than what our team of Upper Arlington senior care services can do for you. Our commitment to you remains the same: to make you feel right at home.
