Recovering from home after surgery can limit you with your daily activities. Whether you are recovering from major surgery, childbirth, or plastic surgery, our compassionate caregivers can assist you to a healthy and complete recovery.
Arthritis, physical disabilities, and age-related conditions are some of the few circumstances that prevent patients from caring for themselves. Our caregivers can assist you with daily tasks such as mobility, eating, exercising, and grooming.
Our experienced and highly trained caregivers provide the highest quality of care to both patients and their families. Our goal is to help individuals and their loved ones live happy and fulfilling lives.
The aging process can be an emotional and challenging time for all involved. At Care One our goal is to provide quality care that enables older adults to live happier, healthier lives at home. Just because you can't be at your loved one's home doesn't mean they have to be alone.
Care One provides home health care and companionship to senior adults living in the South Florida area. We provide homemakers, companions, certified nursing assistants (CNAs), and home health aides (HHAs) to those in need of assistance.
Phone calls are answered personally 24/7, whether it’s a referral inquiry or general question. We can advise you of all available options, assist you in the decision-making process, and support you in managing the realities of a practical and compassionate plan of care for your loved one.
Caregivers are comprised of certified nursing assistants (CNAs), home health aides (HHAs) and companion/homemakers. In addition to providing companionship, these professionals are trained to help seniors maintain as independent of a lifestyle as possible. Our clients have varying degrees of disability for home care assistance, ranging from the need to have complete and total care to the need for minimal assistance, and we adapt to those needs.
All of the caregivers must undergo State approved schooling, a Level 2 FBI and Local background screening. Many of our Caregivers have driver's licenses as well as a car available to take their clients to doctor appointments, movies, restaurants, grocery shopping, or other similar activities. The caregivers will provide the best care possible for your loved ones.
Caregivers are experienced in:
Does your loved one need help with chores like housekeeping and laundry? Hiring a cleaning service can take these tasks off their plate and yours. It may be time to evaluate how much of your time is spent performing housekeeping chores, and if hiring out this task allows for a more valuable use of your time. House cleaning services can be arranged weekly, biweekly, or even monthly. A monthly deep clean can be beneficial so that a senior only needs to focus on lighter daily tasks.
Home care companies can also provide light housekeeping services to ensure a senior is living in a clean, safe and organized environment. Just remember that an aide’s job description is to provide personal support and supervision, not heavy-duty cleaning services like window washing or carpet cleaning.
In recent years, many businesses have adopted additional convenience features like delivery service and curbside pick-up. Of course, countless goods can be ordered online, but local grocery stores, drug stores, dry cleaners and many other retail outlets now offer same-day delivery or express pick-up of items that have been purchased. In some cases, these services can facilitate shopping and even make leaving the house entirely unnecessary. This is great for seniors who tire easily, have limited mobility or can no longer drive. If the primary issue with running errands is transportation to and from the store, there are several options for this service as well, including public transportation, taxis, and ridesharing services.
When a senior is not eating well, it can take a serious toll on their health. Frozen dinners, take-out and meal replacement shakes can serve a purpose in a pinch, but these options aren’t ideal as primary sources of nutrition. Meals on Wheels America is one of the most well-known food delivery services for seniors. Programs vary slightly from place to place, but basic service includes healthy meal delivery to those age 60 and older who have limited mobility and are challenged to provide themselves with adequate nutrition. These meals are usually provided for a sliding scale fee that is based on a senior’s ability to pay.
There are numerous other prepared meal delivery services available across the country, but nothing beats a home-cooked meal. Many home care agencies provide personal care aides who can plan, shop for and cook meals from scratch. Seniors often enjoy exploring recipes and cooking together. The social aspect of sharing meals is especially beneficial for seniors who live alone. Even if an aide doesn’t visit frequently, he or she can prepare large batches of homemade dishes and freeze them for future use.
Seniors often have chronic medical conditions that must be managed with medication. A 2015 study conducted by researchers at Oregon State University found that nearly 40 percent of adults aged 65 and older take five or more prescription medications. When a loved one’s regimen becomes too complicated or they begin making medication mistakes, it’s crucial that they get help.
While there are pill boxes, phone call reminders, automatic dispensers and other products that can assist with medication management, these options often require another person to be present to confirm that the senior has taken their medicine as directed. Home care workers who visit at a set time each day can provide medication reminders in person and note that the correct dosages were taken. In some cases, Medicare will pay for a home health aide to come to a senior’s home to administer medications if they require intermittent skilled nursing care.
Getting around with limited mobility can be difficult and even dangerous for seniors. Professional caregivers can provide increased supervision and assistance with mobility and transfers, which can reduce the likelihood of falls and other household accidents. Many seniors are actually more active and less anxious when they know they’re being monitored and that help is close by. In fact, home care aides are happy to take walks with clients and participate in activities and exercises that help maintain and promote mobility.
Unfortunately, as a senior’s physical and mental health decline, all too often so does their personal hygiene. Simple tasks like bathing, brushing one’s teeth, putting on clean clothes and shaving become tiresome and fall lower and lower on the priority list. Helping a loved one bathe may be the only solution.
Bathing assistance is usually only available through home care companies or home health agencies. They will send a specially trained bath aide to quickly and discretely help your loved one take a shower, bath or bed bath. Personal hygiene is crucial for good health, and many caregivers turn to bathing services for seniors to help their loved ones with self-care and avoid the discomfort of providing this intimate assistance. Personal care aides can help elders with toileting and continence care as well.
Many stylists and salons have also added house calls to their offerings to cover the more glamorous personal care services, such as haircuts, shaving and nail care, but availability depends upon a senior’s location.
