Whether you or your loved one need 24/7 assistance, or just a few hours each day, Senior Helpers will provide the care you need. Our service options are flexible and completely customizable to your specific needs, and your personalized senior care plan can combine aspects of any of our service offerings.
At Senior Helpers, we hire professional, compassionate, service oriented individuals to provide the highest level of care to our clients and their families.
When you first contact a Senior Helpers office, we will set up a complimentary initial assessment at the client’s dwelling to determine their needs and formulate an individualized care plan. When needed, a qualified staff member, Social Worker or Registered Nurse (depending on state regulations) will conduct a full assessment to aid in this process and further articulate the care plan.
We will then use this assessment in our caregiver matching process to choose the most appropriate caregiver for our clients. Service will begin on a pre-determined date and immediate follow-up will be conducted with the family, as well as additional follow-ups on a periodic basis, to ensure continued excellence.
Here is a list of the different services we provide:
Senior Helpers Services
For our basic level of care, caregivers provide services such as companionship, meal planning and preparation, light housekeeping, laundry, medication reminders, and other general assistance.
For individuals who need help taking care of their homes, we offer housekeeping services that include laundry, ironing, vacuuming, meal preparation and dish washing, as well as taking care of pets and plants.
For our advanced level of care, our professional and experienced caregivers provide basic companion care as well as assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), such as bathing, dressing, grooming, toileting, and ambulation assistance. These services are initially assessed and regularly monitored by either a client care coordinator, Social Worker or RN depending on the regulations of the state that the office is located in.
Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care
For clients living with Alzheimer’s and Dementia we will work with their families to create a customized care plan which may include cueing programs to stimulate memory, constant patient monitoring, administering and supervising medication, supervising daily activities, fostering supportive communication and creating a warm, positive environment.
Senior Helpers’ Parkinson’s Care Program is a specialized training program created in conjunction with leading experts from the National Parkinson Foundation’s Center of Excellence. This program, the first of its kind in the in-home senior care industry, is designed to provide our caregivers with the expert training and education on how to handle the range of mobility and movement limitations experienced with Parkinson’s, manage medications, techniques and strategies to manage motor and non-motor symptoms of the disease, and more.
With live-in care our caregivers are available to provide 24-hour coverage, as long as they can sleep for eight hours per night and receive appropriate breaks. Live-in care can be provided for a minimum of two consecutive days, up to seven days per week indefinitely.
We know it can be challenging for families when a loved one is discharged from the hospital or other medical facility. This service ensures that clients are guided through the outpatient surgery and recovery period. We are available for help prior to surgery and will accompany a client each step of the way through full recovery, including transportation to follow-up doctor visits.
With sitter assistance, our caregivers monitor clients in hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living centers, continuing care retirement communities, etc., to be there when the family cannot, and to ensure that our clients’ needs are met.
Concierge Care is a collaborative agreement providing services and assistance to seniors living within assisted, independent and continuing care retirement communities. Services include move-in service, post-medical care, companion and personal care, fractional care, wait-list support and more.
Respite care is a unique program to assist families by providing care for a short period of time, such as vacations, so that those who are taking care of a family member can rest and take time to take care of themselves as well.
A wellness watch is a semi-monthly visit which includes companion care services customized to meet the needs of a loved one. The family will receive a monthly report and access to quick-start home care.
