Home Care Services
We believe that your loved one’s social needs are just as important to address as their health conditions. Our seniors face some emotional challenges when they live alone and these can be difficult to overcome. More often than not, their health conditions limit their ability to drive or travel; thus, making it hard for them to stay connected with friends and friends. Then there is that feeling of loneliness and isolation.
This is where our caregivers can help. For our basic level of care, 1Heart caregivers will provide:
- Medication Reminders
- Safety Supervision
- Other General Assistance
For those who are staying at a hospital, we also provide sitter services. Our caregivers sit with and monitor a client during their stay at the hospital. When it’s time to go home, the caregiver is there to provide a smooth transition. He or she can transport you from the care facility and provides essential support during an often-stressful time.
