In my 20+ years in my nursing practice, I compiled a list of sorts called, ''If I had MY way''. I had great difficulty knowing that there was not enough time in my day to provide the care I felt my patients and residents truly deserved. I've witnessed caregiver fatigue in family members of declining Hospice patients. I heard the frustration of families who expected faster staff response to their loved one's call light in facilities. I saw the fatigue in my son's face as he and his father managed 2 grandparents in unpredictable failing health. I knew that it was time to put my list into action as I created a personalized menu of services for Optimal Care wherever need may be.
When considering a Personal Care Service, ask yourself:
Where is your loved one most comfortable? Where does he or she feel most confident and open to participating in activities? The answer, most likely, is their own home.
Not only is the recovery process easier and faster in the calming familiarity of the home environment, but with a range of home care services, your loved one also has the control and ability to lead a meaningful, independent life. Our personal care services range from medication reminders and assistance with range-of-motion activities/endurance exercises, to daily chores, meal preparation and grocery shopping.
Our services are not limited to the home environment. We have a variety of services that may be brought to loved ones in Assisted Livings, Skilled Nursing/Long Term Care, and Rehabilitation facilities.
