Specialized Care

When it comes to personal care, we acknowledge that everyone has different needs – some are more technical and require more support than others. We make certain that the care you receive is tailored to your specific requirements and conditions.

Chronic conditions and diseases

Clients  experiencing chronic conditions have long-term illnesses that can be managed through medications and treatment. Common examples are heart ailments, diabetes, asthma, and high blood pressure.

Without the proper attention and care towards these conditions, the client’s overall health may be affected. Our health care aides take note of these conditions and provide the needed care accordingly.

Alzheimer’s or Dementia Care

Dementia-related conditions like Alzheimer’s alter cognitive functions, therefore, affecting memory, decision-making, and comprehension. Patients with these conditions can have a hard time dealing with their emotions, expressing themselves, and remembering to cater to their own needs.

A lot of patience and understanding goes into Dementia or Alzheimer’s care. Health care aides use the Gentle Persuasive Approach (GPA) to help create a safe environment for their clients and maintain a sense of familiarity.

Persons with Disabilities

Some individuals have visual, physical, mental, intellectual, and sensory disabilities that may cause some struggle with how they manage their activities of daily living. 

Our job as your personal care provider is to assist in overcoming those hurdles, so clients  can live comfortably and confidently.

When it comes to matching our health care aides with clients, we understand the importance of building rapport. Not only do we base selection on the client’s medical needs, but we also take into consideration their personality, interests, lifestyle, and preferences.
