Respite Care for Family Members

The family caregiver can be under enormous stress. Evidence shows that most caregivers are ill-prepared for their role and provide care with little or no support, yet more than one-third of caregivers continue to provide intense care to others while suffering from poor health themselves.

A substantial body of research shows that family caregivers are themselves at risk of emotional, mental and physical problems that arise from the strains of caring for their relatives. Respite care can give you a break, for a few hours, a whole day, or even overnight.

If you need a break from the responsibilities of caring for your loved one, we can help. We can provide care for a few hours daily, a weekend, or even for a week while you take a vacation and spend some time caring for yourself to avoid family caregiver burnout. It could make all the difference in the world for you and your loved ones.

Don’t deny yourself the services that will make your life easier and happier. You can find more information on our Family Caregivers page.

Home Safety Assessment

Hospital to Home Program

Crucial to helping someone maintain their dignity is taking care of the human needs.  We have services to help you maintain the personal matters that are more challenging for those who have become too weak or confused to help themselves.  Mobility to different positions/locations gives you or your loved one a change of scenery and helps prevent bed sores from developing.  Hospital discharge or doctor’s care directions can be confusing when you are under the influence of pain killers or if you struggle with memory; our trained caregivers can help with the directions you are supposed to follow and can keep an eye out for warning symptoms.  We’re there when you need a steady hand.

Hospital to Home is a care transition service that offers the necessary post-hospital support to reduce the risk of readmission. It addresses the primary causes of readmission by proactively ensuring that the patient is safe and comfortable at home immediately after discharge – and that they keep the follow-up doctor appointment.

Hospital to Home care transition does not replace skilled home health services, but does provide the critical support services that can prevent readmission to the hospital. Unfortunately, Medicare and private insurance do not pay for these services, but the peace of mind is worth the extra cost.

In the first visit, immediately after discharge, the caregiver can:

  • Help the patient get into comfortable clothes, settled in chair or bed, with a glass of water and something to do or read.
  • Make safety adjustments in the home by removing clutter and loose rugs in pathways and putting often used items such as phones, water, tissues and remotes within easy reach
  • Make sure new prescriptions have been picked up or pick them up
  • Make sure the food in the refrigerator is fresh, pick up needed groceries and prepare a light meal if requested
  • Help the patient call their primary care physician to schedule the follow-up visit

In the continuum of care plan, which is timed from discharge to the day of the follow up doctor appointment, the caregiver can:

  • Provide Medication Reminders
  • Offer Discharge Care Plan Instruction Assistance
  • Assist with Dressing, Toileting, and Personal Care
  • Help with Activities of Daily Living, as needed
  • Light House Work
  • Preparing Meals
  • Screen Visitors/Solicitors
  • Prepare Grocery Lists
  • Taking Out the Garbage/Recycling
  • Assist with Caring of your Pet during your recovery
  • Help Dress and Get Ready for the Follow Up Physician Appointment
  • Review the questions the patient wants to discuss with the doctor
  • Provide Transportation to and from the Doctor’s Office

If nursing or full home healthcare services become necessary, we can refer you to an appropriate home health care agency.

Transportation & Social Support

Our licensed and insured caregivers have safe driving records and a clean, maintained vehicle to make sure you safely arrive at your destination or to retrieve your much-needed shopping items.   Everyone gets a little cabin fever now and then, a luncheon out may be just what you need.  We are here to cater to your transportation needs.

  • Medical Appointment Escort
  • Errands
  • Shopping
  • Beauty Shop Appointments
  • Church Services
  • Visiting Friends/Neighbors
  • Outings (Museums, Zoo, Theater, Movies, Etc.)
  • Dining Out
  • Travel Arrangements
