An initial intake session shapes you or your loved one’s short-term care plan. During this session, our licensed social worker and registered nurse assess living situations, evaluate medical conditions, and gain insights to help them select the ideal aide.
Our aides are certified to assist with activities of daily living that become a struggle when physical functioning changes. From dressing to bathing, grooming to feeding, exercise to transportation, your loved one receives crucial assistance from a motivating companion. Our goal: to help him or her work towards greater independence, follow a tailored home exercise program, and progress to a speedy recovery, if possible. Our minimum for the week is 12 hours.
