Senior Home Care
Professional Caretakers Home Care goes the extra mile and requires that all of their caretakers take their personality test to ensure that they are true nurturers and have a calling for home care. They also find out what they are like, so they can find the best personality fit for your loved one. After all, their success depends on them liking and bonding with each other.
They think of ourselves as surrogate family members. They can do all the tasks you are currently helping your loved one with and much more. Because they have nurses, they can also help if your senior needs help with medications, insulin, exercises, oxygen, catheters, feeding tubes, and other light medical.
Assisted Living Care
Professional Caretakers can help your loved one even if they are in Assisted Living. Whether its help with a bath at their independent living apartment, extra laundry at their assisted living apartment, or a safety and wellness visit at your loved one’s nursing home or hospital, they go wherever you need them.
About 10% of the care they deliver every day is in Assisted Living or some other kind of facility. Assisted Living has done an incredible job helping seniors who need assistance with activities of daily living. Most will include meals, laundry, and activities as part of their monthly fee. Some add bathing, dressing, eating, toileting and med services. But in all cases, they are limited in the scope and number of times they will include these services as part of their monthly fee. At some point they will ask you to pay for any services above the services you agreed to in your contract. Or even worse, they may evict you or transfer you to a nursing home.
Their caretakers can provide steady support for loved ones who have suffered a stroke, and they can provide preventive care to help reduce the chances of a recurrence.
