Skilled Care

As we age, the likelihood of experiencing a fall in our homes increases, and this can erode our confidence in independent mobility.

Those who face challenges with daily tasks at home can find essential support in our skilled caregivers.

Our experienced caregivers offer a range of services designed to enhance safety, comfort, and independence, including assistance with bathing, toileting, grooming, transfers, and more.

What Does Skilled Care Include?

Grooming Assistance

For those with mobility restrictions, tasks like shaving, hair and nail care, and teeth brushing can become challenging. Our caregivers provide a caring hand in grooming, helping with shaving, makeup application, teeth cleaning, denture care, hair styling, and dressing. Looking and feeling good is essential for confidence.

Meal Preparation

Caregivers in our skilled care program prepare healthy, well-rounded meals for clients. This is not just about nourishment but also a time for connection and cultural exchange through cooking together. We also monitor hydration and feeding with close attention to intake and output.

Bathing Assistance

Our caregivers provide compassionate support during bathing, understanding that this essential activity may become challenging for some clients. We offer a steady arm to lean on during bathing, ensuring that those with mobility issues can bathe with confidence and reassurance. In addition to traditional bathing, we also provide bed baths for clients who may require this level of care, ensuring that everyone’s unique needs are met with dignity and respect.

Fall Prevention

Home safety can be challenging for individuals with mobility restrictions. Our skilled care providers assess home safety and make necessary adjustments to ensure clients can follow a safe home routine. They also provide standby assistance for activities like walking, reaching, and bending over.

Dementia Care

Dementia care encompasses a comprehensive approach to supporting individuals affected by cognitive decline. It involves personalized assistance with daily activities like bathing, dressing, and meal preparation. Caregivers also play a crucial role in managing medications, ensuring proper dosages and schedules. Emotional support is essential, as individuals with dementia may experience confusion and frustration. Caregivers provide companionship, engage in meaningful activities, and offer reassurance. Safety measures are implemented to prevent accidents and wandering behavior, including environment modifications and monitoring. Additionally, family members receive education and support to better understand dementia and cope with its challenges.
