Keeping the Individual Comfortable
One-on-one companionship in the familiar environment of the home helps bring essential comfort and peace to an individual on hospice.
Turning the Bedridden to Prevent Bed Sores
In the final days of life, close attention to personal care is of utmost importance. Our caregivers will turn clients frequently to minimize bed sores and make sure they are as comfortable as possible at the end-of-life.
Simply having someone there with your loved one around-the-clock, or on an as-needed basis, provides much needed comfort and compassion.
At the end-of-life, it's common that one's appetite will decrease, so it's important to maintain the nutritional value of the food your loved one will consume. Our caregivers are trained to prepare healthy meals based on our hospice client's needs and preferences.
Maintaining Personal Hygiene
We are committed to a dignified hospice experience in which we help our clients stay clean, groomed and maintain their hygiene.
Hospice patients can often feel become depressed or even experience feelings of abandonment by loved ones. Our caregivers know how to provide the emotional support needed at this time.

Senior & Elderly Care For Your Loved Ones
Having elderly care in their household can lessen stress for family members and provide essential support for the senior. Home care can also be a key part of the recovery process resulting from an illness or injury. Home care provides the support your loved one needs and the peace of mind you deserve.
Care for your Elderly Loved One: An Invaluable Resource
Mom has a fall and everything changes.
If you haven't had this experience or one like it, chances are you could soon. Home care can make all the difference when something like this happens. Elder care at home can also provide a layer of support to prevent a crisis such as a fall, or wandering out of the house, from happening.
Home care helps senior clients with:
• Cooking and light housekeeping
• Laundry and changing bed linens
• Grocery shopping and errands
• Companionship and range of motion exercise
• Bathing, dressing and grooming assistance
• Transportation to medical appointments, the supermarket or pharmacy
• Assisting with walking and transferring from bed to wheelchair
• Status reporting to family
• Medication reminders
Defining Home Care
It is important to distinguish between non-medical home care and medical home health care. Both can be can be a very important part of recovery and ongoing quality of life as one ages.
Non-medical home care goes by a couple of different names. It can be referred to as personal care or private duty care. Medical home health care is usually referred to as home health. Let's take a look at the example below to illustrate the difference between the two and they can work together to achieve an optimal outcome for the client:
Ann is a spry 93-year-old who lives with her husband in their own home. Anns husband, Jim, has early-stage dementia and she has been his primary caregiver. She cooks the meals, does the housekeeping and still drives to the store for groceries. A simple cold turns into pneumonia. Ann is hospitalized for two nights and receives IV antibiotics and fluids since she is also dehydrated. When she goes home, Jim is completely overwhelmed with the task of taking care of her. Anns daughter decides it is time for home care to help them both. She calls an agency to arrange for 24 hour caregiving. The caregiver reminds Ann to do her breathing treatments, encourages her to drink water, and makes nutritious meals. Having elder care for Ann speeds up her recovery and keeps Jim healthy as well.
As you can see in this story, a caregiver helps Ann recover quickly and safely.
Nutrition and Hydration
Nutrition and hydration are critical to health and recovery. Dehydration is a serious problem for the elderly, resulting in frequent hospitalizations. Poor nutrition has been implicated in slower recovery from illness and an increase in hospitalizations as well. Caregivers can shop for food, encourage fluid intake and make meals. They can also reinforce and track any special dietary restrictions.
Transportation and Errands
Transportation is a significant challenge for many seniors. Most of us know of an older person who continues to drive, even though he or she shouldn't be. Although it is hard to give up the wheel, having an alternative can make the task easier. Home caregivers can provide this valuable service, whether it is to the pharmacy or a play.
Rehabilitation and Recovery
Recovery for most of us means getting back to our previous level of functioning. Functioning is affected by any number of situations. This could be hospitalization, an illness, a rehab stay or general decline that results in frailty. Recovery in older adults generally takes longer and other co-occurring medical conditions can complicate it.
A caregiver can be an invaluable support. A good care plan developed the Home Care Assistance Care Team with feedback from the family and client can encourage a safe recovery.
