We Stay So Family Members Can Get Away
If you’re a caregiver, you may need time away from your responsibilities to recharge and refresh. While you are away, Aides & Companion’s caregivers can fill in for you during a well-deserved break. Our specially-trained caregivers care for your loved one’s needs.
Some family caregivers choose to have someone take on caregiver duties for a few hours a week or a few hours a day. Respite care can also be used for longer periods to accommodate an extended break or vacation. We accommodate what you need.
We provide the following care services.
· Meal preparation and dietary assistance
· Bathing and showering
· Accompanied walks
· Daily phone calls
· Reading books/newspapers/mail
· Letter writing
· Mailing and filing
· Light housekeeping
· Caring for a loved pet
We also provide transportation services, which can make a difference in the quality of life for our clients. If they need a ride to a doctor’s appointment, to a family event or a friend’s house, or to the grocery store, we can help. This service can be especially important for those who do not have family or friends nearby who can help with transportation. We transport our clients safely and comfortably.
We can take our clients on the following trips and, if desired, accompany them during the trip.
· Events and outings
· Grocery stores or shops
· Other travel
Our Care Promise
We continually review and revise our business practices and training methods to uphold the Home Care Standards Bureau (HCSB) A+ certification. Our caregivers are graduates of state-certified programs, are screened with a multi-tiered background check, and receive monthly “in-service” training to keep their skills honed. We ensure that our clients feel safe, secure, and confident about their care.
The cost of in-home care is typically lower than in institutional care settings, and older adults generally prefer to stay in the comfort and security of their own homes. Learn more about our payment options here.
