Service Providers for Long Term Care

One great benefit of staying in Continuing Care facilities or Senior Communities is that they guarantee individualized care around the clock. However, it’s important to note that each client is unique and has different needs. Apart from primary care, some may have medical conditions such as chronic diseases, disabilities, or other illnesses that require extra monitoring and assistance. In order to provide excellent and holistic care for each individual, care facilities need to have the right team members with the proper training and skills. 

When care facilities require extra staffing, Care Within Reach is happy to lend a helping hand. Our health care aides are experienced, skilled, and dedicated professionals who can provide comprehensive care and person-centered support. As fellow care providers, we are committed to working with organizations and contributing to the quality care they impart to their clients.

Rest assured that when it comes to having the standard skills and the heart for caregiving, we meet the necessary qualifications in providing outstanding and holistic care. 

Health Care Aides for Senior Care Communities

Having an HCA caring one-on-one for the resident who lives in an Assisted Living or Long-term care community may benefit from having someone to socialize with longer and with more quality. While  the safe and positive environment of long-term care and Assisted living communities, coupled with various amenities, activities, and social fulfillment it may give, our care aides could cover for that quality time with your loved ones when other care providers become busy caring for other residents as they try their very best to accommodate everybody.  

Our Health care aides help enrich the lives of every client, making sure to consider their preferences and to adjust care services according to their condition and the care plans provided as a guide. Our health care aides either work as a companion, to have a personal care aide Calgary who stays beside your loved one’s side, while providing hands-on personal care that can be one or more of the following:

  • Bathing, showering, washing
  • Incontinence care, toileting
  • Grooming and maintaining a positive body image
  • Mobility and transfers
  • Assistance with meals
  • Medication assistance
  • Oral hygiene
  • Nail care

Social Interaction

Apart from day-to-day assistance, residential care facilities are specifically designed to improve the client’s lifestyle and overall quality of life. Not only are these places easy to move around in, but it also includes space and opportunities for social interactions.

Places like Senior Communities encourage conversation, companionship, and connecting with others, which is greatly beneficial for emotional, mental, and physical health. Being able to feel a sense of community and belongingness is one step towards an enriched lifestyle and maintaining a positive outlook on life.

Safety, Security, Transportation

Staying in a residential care facility means having around-the-clock access to care services and the medical assistance of an on-site nurse. Clients can rest and comfortably go about their day knowing that they are safe and secure if ever they are in need of immediate assistance. 

Health care aides also assist in transportation needs, which ensures their safety even outside facility premises. Whether they are going for a check-up, to the park, or a social gathering, clients can rely on care aides to be there for them.


Staying Active

Depending on their physical and medical conditions, clients are encouraged to stay at a certain level of physical activity. Professional support workers in long term care facilities can offer recreational activities or assist in stretching or light exercise. Additionally, in promoting wellness and independence, health care aides also help clients engage in hobbies, interests, and leisure activities.

Specialized Caregiving

Continuing care communities provide immense help for clients who have unpredictable or high-maintenance medical needs and conditions. With the continuing support of health care aides, clients with cognitive disabilities, dementia, Alzheimers, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and other conditions can receive the holistic care their circumstances require. Some care facilities also offer rehabilitation or physical therapy assistance for the client’s well-being.

With everything that long term care facilities have to offer, it does so cost-effectively. Care plans in facilities may not entirely be inexpensive, but it proves it’s worth through exceptional care programs and the 24/7 service of experienced professional support workers. Also, as supported by the Alberta Health Services, overtime fees are covered through extra care dollars.

Live in comfort and with peace of mind

Because of health conditions, many senior clients can not handle living alone and without the support of a professional care aide throughout their day-to-day life. In this situation, we aspire to replicate the sense of comfort and familiarity of home in the environment of care facilities. At the same time, long term care in Calgary aims to assist each and every client in achieving an improved quality of life.
