Home care services provide a wide variety of care. However, since each person is different, their home care needs are also different. At Kind Hearts Senior Care we utilize an assessment process that allows us to custom tailor our services to meet an individual’s specific needs. We base our assessment on terms of care, types of care, light housekeeping, personal care, errands and transportation, and companion care.
Terms of Care
The terms of the care we offer, are customized to best meet the needs of each individual. These plans can be full or part-time. They can be home visits or live in. Our plans have low minimums and can be either temporary or long term depending on each person. We work with individuals’ needs and budget to come up with the best solution for them.
Types of Care
The type of care each person needs also varies. We specialize in a wide variety of care types, so each person can be best-taken care of. We offer in-home Alzheimer’s care, in-home Dementia care, in-home Parkinson’s care, and in-home Stroke victim care. We also can provide respite care for family, to give other caretakers a break. If the individual needs overnight care or supervision, we offer stay away overnight care. We can provide 24/7 care and live-in care as well. Whatever a person’s needs are, we should be able to help.
Light housekeeping is a service of home care that many people need and utilize. Even if a person is capable of housekeeping, they don’t always have the energy. We can help, so a person can better focus their energy on more important things. Some of the housekeeping tasks that we provide are dusting and picking up, vacuuming and sweeping floors, cleaning the kitchen and dishes, organizing closets, changing linens, doing light laundry, ironing, and light bathroom cleaning.
Personal care is often put aside when a person is struggling with their day-to-day. Our home care services can provide help with personal care, which in turn keeps a person healthier and happier. Some of the items we help with are showering, grooming, dressing, help with transfers, and medication reminders.
Errands & Transportation
Getting out of the house can be a difficult and sometimes impossible task when alone. Our services can help with errands or provide transportation, so the individual can still go on with their daily life. Some of the areas we can help with are getting groceries and other shopping needs, picking up prescriptions, and going to a movie, play, or other events. We provide dining out for meals, handling dry cleaning, home maintenance, and attending religious or spiritual services.
Finally, the last but not least of our tailored services is companion care. Companionship is important for all people and can help an individual stay happier and healthier. Some of the ways we offer companionship are by helping plan and prepare meals, cooking together, playing games and puzzles, providing pet care, answering phone calls, reading mail, or organizing closets. Overall, we will offer companionship, so our home care plans feel like a friendship.
Every client is unique. They have individual needs and wants. Because we offer so many different services, we can adjust our plans to best suit the individual.
