Our Services

Our top priority at Home Care Resources is to help your loved one stay at home for as long as is safely possible. We take a team approach, working together with you, your relative and your relative’s health care providers to develop a personalized plan of care.

Our goal at Home Care Resources is to empower each client and their family members to work together with medical providers to bring about an optimal level of health.

 

In-home care

It may be that your loved one is no longer able to live safely alone. Having someone come by to cook a few meals and do some light housekeeping may be all that is needed. Or, it could be that your loved one requires more constant attention. He or she may not need the services of a nurse. But the daily presence of a kind, knowledgeable caregiver can assure he or she is eating regularly, taking baths, and taking medications as directed. Services can include:

  • Light housekeeping
  • Meal preparation
  • Appointments, errands and shopping
  • Medication reminders
  • Personal hygiene, grooming

You can choose part time or full time assistance. We do the background checks and handle all the taxes and scheduling. You rest easily knowing your loved one is in good hands with caring and consistent help.

Communicating with doctors

If you sometimes feel overwhelmed by the medical system, you are not alone! It can be daunting for anyone. We are available to answer your questions, explain the care recommended by the doctor, and help your loved one meet his or her health goals. If a problem develops over the course of treatment, our Care Managers are available to talk with your doctor and find out what he or she recommends. This means you can be liberated from the role of medical advocate and can instead use that time and energy to provide the love and support that only a family member can give.

Periodic check-ins

Our Care Managers can be your knowledgeable eyes and ears. Things can change quickly in the aging process. By providing oversight and checking in periodically, our care managers can let you know whether your loved one is still able to live safely at home. We know the problems that commonly arise and the most cost-effective solutions. Perhaps there are some mobility issues that are making life more difficult than it needs to be.  We can alert you when your loved one is starting to have memory problems and needs help with paying the bills, or balancing the checkbook or may be receiving an excessive number of solicitions by telephone of mail.
