Senior in-Home Care Services are a range of human assistance services provided to persons with disabilities and chronic conditions which enables them to accomplish tasks that they would normally do for themselves if they did not have a disability. Assistance may be in the form of hands-on assistance or cueing so that the person performs the task by him/her self, including:
Connect Home Care aidesprepare hot, delicious, and nutritious meals, allowing clients to help with preparation according to their ability. Many seniors do not have the opportunity to eat a well-balanced meal, so this service helps seniors get the nutrition they need to enjoy healthier living.
These services can be done in either the client’s home or the Laundromat and include washing, drying, ironing and putting things away. Connect Home Care aides involve clients to make sure laundry is done according to their preferences.
Our home care services include light housekeeping services, vacuuming, dusting, sweeping and mopping floors, cleaning bathrooms (sinks, tubs, showers, and toilets), cleaning kitchens (sinks, appliances, counters, taking out trash), straightening all rooms, organizing closets and drawers, and cleaning any interior windows that can be reached without a ladder. However, our aides do not provide outdoor cleaning or maintenance.
Our home care aides also help with shopping for groceries at stores of their client’s preference and run errands, such as picking up prescriptions or going to the post office. Clients may choose to stay home or help with the shopping and errands as an excellent way to stay active and engaged.
Connect Home Care aides provide transportation incidental to other care services, such as taking clients to medical appointments, barbershops, beauty salons, shopping, or wherever else a client wants to go. Getting seniors out and about is good for their mind, body and spirit and an integral part of Connect Home Care’s interactive care giving.
Although Connect Home Care cannot administer medications, they can help ensure that clients take their own medication as prescribed. Connect Home Care aides can assist with opening medication containers, reading labels and reminding the client when it is time to take a dose.
Connect Home CareÂ aides assist clients with washing and combing their hair and other grooming tasks to enable them to feel good about their appearance.
Connect Home Care tailors care to each client’s needs from a few hours a week to full-time care. Through our live-in services we provide full-time care giving by aides who live in the client’s home to provide in-home care on a daily basis. The client and family may designate the types of non-medical in-home care services that are to be provided.
This service gives family members peace of mind, preventing gaps in coverage for individuals who may be at risk when unattended, such as those with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia-related conditions.
Conversation and Companionship
Our Home Health aides are available to provide clients company and engage in conversation, or to sit down to share a meal together. Social contact such as this is proven to enhance the health, happiness and quality of life of seniors.
