Caring Companionship - Having someone to sit and visit with can help make for a happier life and provides our clients with something to look forward to. Right at Home's caring companionship services cover anything from conversation, eating a meal together or just having someone in the home to visit.
Medication Reminders - Did you know that medication mismanagement is one of the most common causes of hospital admissions? Our caregivers can remind clients to take their medications, report side effects, and assist with pre-measured medication packages to help clients avoid potentially dangerous medication mismanagement. Although our caregivers cannot administer medications, they can remind our clients to take their medication and at the appropriate time.
Meal Preparation - As part of our in home care services, a Right at Home caregiver can prepare a nutritious meal and clean up afterwards. The opportunity to eat regular, healthy meals can maintain strength and hydration, promote recovery, and assure appropriate absorption of medications.
Special Diet/Meal Preparation - Our caregivers and administrators will work with family and other healthcare professionals to plan meals according to clients' specific needs. This could include specifications for diabetics, low sodium needs, puree, or others.
Transportation/Accompaniment - Our caregivers are able to provide transportation and accompaniment to doctor's appointments, events, social outings, and more. Whether you prefer the caregiver to drive your vehicle, or their own, you can find peace of mind knowing that each of our caregiver's have a valid driver's license and current and valid automobile insurance.
Shopping & Errand Services - A caregiver can run errands such as picking up prescriptions, dry cleaning, or supplies for social events. Some specific examples include:
Grocery Shopping - this can be done with or without the client. The client can also specify particular stores and the caregiver can assure compliance with prescribed diets.
Caregivers can take clients wherever they need or want to go. More than just maintaining independence, social stimulation is therapeutic as well.
Light Housekeeping - Right at Home can assist with vacuuming, dusting, cleaning floors, laundry, ironing, cleaning bathrooms, cleaning kitchens, taking out the trash, straightening rooms, organizing closets and drawers, and more.
Bathing Assistance - Many times our elderly or disabled clients are capable of performing their own bathing and other personal care services. However, the peace of mind that comes with knowing that a trained Right at Home caregiver is standing by for assistance and safety supervision often gives the client/family some necessary reassurance.
Family Respite Care - In situations where we provide a respite for a primary family caregiver (e.g. a wife caring for a husband or a daughter caring for her mother), we find that with our help the family relationship can strengthen when one removes the considerable stress that the role of family caregiver can bring. We find that most often care for a client is a family situation, not just an individual client needing care. We are always mindful of this when advising families on in home care.
Family Care Plan Review - Keeping the family informed of the caregiver plan and answering any questions is a cornerstone of our Right at Home services. We want everyone to feel comfortable with the in home care situation and keeping the lines of communication open is the key. Whether you live in the same town or are on the opposite coast, Right at Home will make sure to keep in touch with the family on a consistent basis.
Recreational Activities - Right at Home caregivers can take the client out to enjoy their favorite activities or stay in the home and play a hand of cards or a board game. We want our clients to remain engaged and to maintain the hobbies and activities that they have always enjoyed.
Personal Hygiene & Dressing Assistance - Part of our in home care services include reminding and guiding clients towards good hygiene. We can also help put together outfits and help button buttons, tie shoes, and put on socks.
Bathing Assistance - Bathing is essential to an individual's personal hygiene and more importantly, to the way a person feels. Not only do our bathing services ensure that clients continue to feel comfortable in social situations, but they also maintain skin integrity, stimulate circulation, and reduce the potential for infection.
Walking & Ambulation Assistance - Keeping on the move is vital to both mental and physical well being. Right at Home makes sure that movement occurs on a regular basis and takes into account any physical limitations for each client.
Continence Care - Assistance with urinary and bowel care can be vital to remaining socially active. Our caregivers understand the sensitivity of this situation and are experienced with providing such care.
Toileting Assistance - This is another basic life function, that when lost, is difficult to deal with emotionally. Right at Home caregivers know how to discreetly aid in this sensitive area, providing physical help and addressing all types of toileting needs.
