Services

At Home Personal Care is your #1 source in the area for non-medical in-home caregiving services.

From assistance with everyday tasks to complex care, we are here for them – in their own homes and on their own terms.

1) Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s)


Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s) are the things we normally do in daily living, including any daily activity we perform for self-care. When your loved one has difficulty performing these tasks on their own due to age, physical limitations, an injury, or medical condition, our trained Caregivers are there to assist. We understand it is important for your loved one to maintain their dignity and privacy within their own home, while performing these intimate functions.
We offer support services for just a few hours a day or 7 days a week. During our free initial assessment, our Case Managers will determine the level of care your loved one needs, and develop a plan specifically for them.
Some examples of Activities of Daily Living are:

  • Dressing

As many as 6 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia. This number is expected to reach nearly 20 million in the next 5 decades.

At Home Personal Care understands the special needs of those living with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. We understand that the best place for someone living with this disease is at home within their familiar surroundings. We also understand the emotional stress families undergo when a loved one experiences memory loss and changes in behavior.

3) Parkinson’s Care

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive disorder of the central nervous system which affects more than 1.5 million people in the United States. Because Parkinson’s disease is a progressive illness, symptoms slowly get worse over time.
Parkinson’s disease can cause several different symptoms. The specific group of symptoms that an individual experiences varies from person to person.​​
Some of the most common symptoms of Parkinson’s disease are:

  • tremor of the hands, arms, legs, jaw and face
  • rigidity of stiffness of the limbs and trunk
  • slowness of movement
  • postural instability or impaired balance and coordination

At Home Personal Care helps to make life at home easier for your loved one living with Parkinson’s disease. As your loved one loses the ability to control their movements, their ability to perform certain tasks becomes more difficult. Our specially trained Caregivers are there to assist and extend the quality of life, even as symptoms progress.

4) Medication Management

Our caregivers are trained to provide medication management, which can provide a sense of relief for the family members. The management of our client’s medications, that are prescribed by the physician and when taken correctly as prescribed, supports the healing of the patient. Knowledge of the patient’s medication and medication regimen at home provides a key element to the physician’s care of the patient.
Our caregivers are not allowed to administer the medication, but they are trained to ensure that the client is achieving safe self-administration. Some benefits of having a caregiver to oversee that your loved one is staying on track with their medication regime are listed below:

  • Decrease drug interactions, adverse effects and non-compliance
  • Client and/or caregiver will understand the medication administration as ordered
  • Assess for adequate social and community support for medication compliance
  • Educate the client and the clients family on proper dosage, frequency and side effects
  • Evaluate therapeutic response to medication(s)
  • Assess the effectiveness of pain management
  • Assist in developing medication schedule/process to enhance compliance

5) Respite Care

For many, the challenges of caring for a loved one are part of daily life. Caregiving is a demanding, difficult job and no one is equipped to do it alone. Getting help is essential for your health, and your resilience is critical for your loved one. Seeking support and maintaining one’s own health are key to managing the caregiving years. Using respite care before you become exhausted, isolated, or overwhelmed is ideal, but just anticipating regular relief can become a lifesaver.
Respite care provides short term breaks that relieve stress, restore energy, and promote balance in your life. Working with family members or friends may be difficult, however At Home Personal Care will help provide you with the many respite care options we provide.
Planning starts with analyzing needs…both yours and your loved one’s. Keep track of your daily activities with your loved one and then make a list of the areas and times when you most need help. Identifying your loved one’s requirements, abilities, and preferences will also help determine the right plan for you.
Our Caregivers can provide respite care for as little as 1 hour to as many as 24 hours per day to provide you with the rest you need.

6) Post Surgical Support

Recovering from a surgical procedure can be challenging. At times your loved one may feel frustrated, discouraged, and even feel defeated. They may have trouble navigating the stairs, standing long enough to prepare a meal, doing a load of laundry, or have trouble with showering.
While needing help is a certainty, you may not know exactly how much help will be needed until after your loved one is home. It may be just a few weeks, a month, or assistance may be needed permanently.
At Home Personal Care’s main goal is to provide your loved one the help they need after recovery from a surgical procedure. Our Care Managers can perform consultations within the hospital in order to coordinate care before the day of discharge.
Our Caregivers can help with:

  • Preparing meals
  • Laundry
  • Running errands
  • Keeping the home environment safe
  • Monitoring progress
  • Help with exercises
  • Showering assistance
  • Mobility support
  • Companionship during recovery
  • Medication reminders

 

7) Stroke Support

According to the National Stroke Association, every year over 750,000 Americans experience a stroke. Did you know that an individual who has had a stroke is almost 15% more likely to have a second stroke within one year of the first incident? And within five years of a stroke, over 24% of women and 42% of men will have a second?

8) Cancer Support

Our agency can be very helpful to those affected by Cancer. Our caregivers can help relieve the burden on family members, by having a caregiver come to your home, and provide the necessary services that are required to keep you comfortable. Our licensed Administrators can assist with your physicians plan of care, and ensure that you are receiving supportive care, and emotional support. Our caregivers will also work with physical therapist that you may have within your home, by assisting you to regain the use of impaired or weakened muscles, improve the range of motion in joints and learn to use any equipment needed for daily activities.

With our cancer support services, we can also assist you with your daily tasks, like eating, bathing, dressing, and household routines. With the help of our caregivers, you can better handle personal care, such as getting in and out of bed, walking, bathing, and dressing. In addition, the caregivers can do light household tasks for you, like laundry, meals, housekeeping, and shopping. These services are done to help maintain your house rather than give health care.

A sense of independence is vital to seniors. We understand and respect that, and it’s that understanding that forms the foundation of everything we do. We only hire competent, completely vetted and researched caregivers, thoroughly checking their references. Plus, we perform thorough criminal background checks and caregiver driving record checks, as well as provide them with ongoing training.

This is why you can place your trust in the caregivers at At Home Personal Care. We welcome your questions at any time, so please give us a call.
