Most elderly persons are capable of living
on their own but occasionally require a little help. Our home
service caregivers are specially trained to give the helping
hand needed to brighten the day, lighten the workload and
ensure peace of mind. Our non-medical services include:
Companionship - One of the most
important aspects of Health & Home Senior Care will be
providing customers with a strong sense of family and compassion.
Taking an interest in the customer, their life and their environment
will create an everlasting bond. Whether it is playing a favourite
board game or card game, reading, taking a stroll or visiting
with friends and neighbours, life is meant to enjoy. One of
the founding principals of Health & Home Senior Care is
to enrich the lives of seniors and their loved ones; companionship
is an anchor to this principal.
Light House Cleaning - similar
to a housekeeping or maid service, the Home Worker will provide
dusting, damp mopping hardwood and flooring, vacuuming carpets
and furniture, changing bedding, scrubbing the bathroom and
general tidying of living spaces as required or requested.
Laundry - From pre-washing and
washing to drying, ironing and folding.
Kitchen Maintenance - The Home
Worker may not wear a chef's hat but they do know their way
around a kitchen. Meals can be planned in conjunction with
a nutritionist or with the customer. Grocery planning, grocery
shopping, dishwashing, food maintenance, and cooking will
fill the house with the welcoming aromas of everyone's favourite
Attendant/Driver Service - If
mobility is a concern, the Home Worker can attend any function,
appointment or errand with the customer. Whether it is to
a local sporting event, family gathering or shopping excursion,
the customer will have the added security of someone to lean
on. Depending on arrangements, travel is by taxi or the Home
Workers vehicle. The Home Worker keeps a client schedule so
that important appointments are not forgotten.
Home Basics - This covers all
the basics of looking after a home such as gardening, lawn
mowing or landscaping arrangements, garbage control, heat
and utilities checks, watering indoor plants, replacing light
bulbs and everything else that may have at one time been addressed
by the customer.
Pet Care - A pet is sometimes
the best therapy to fight loneliness, depression, medical
problems or stress. The Home Worker will ensure the pet is
always as happy as the customer. Cleaning, feeding and exercising
the pet will be part of the day's activities.
Basic Personal Care - Washing,
help with pre-poured medicine, personal hygiene, nail care,
hairdressing, picking out co-ordinated outfits, help getting
dressed or applying makeup. The Home Worker will take the
best interests of the customer at heart.
