Why choose in-home care?
When you choose in-home care, you are giving your loved one the opportunity to age positively in the comfort of their home where they can continue to be independent, have no restrictions on the family’s involvement, be surrounded by the same trusted helpers, be at less risk of infections and falls and be able to afford the life they want to lead. According to the AARP, nearly 90 percent of adults over 65 want to remain in their current homes as they grow older. We allow our clients to do just that. We assist with personal care, which involves bathing, eating, dressing toileting and grooming. We take care of running the household by cooking, cleaning, doing laundry and going shopping.
For our clients’ health, we keep track of medication schedules and take them to physician’s appointments. And for their emotional well-being, we provide companionship, accompany them to activities they love, and help them remain involved in the community.
How do you choose your caregivers?
Many of our aides have been with Best Senior Care for over 17 years. We take extraordinary effort to find multi-lingual, certified, licensed and carefully screened caregivers. We look for individuals with passion, experience, deep family ties, dependability and certain medical backgrounds. We provide them with substantial training in common safety issues, fall prevention, understanding mental health disorders, bed mobility, incontinence care, nutrition and conflict management. We will not send out caregivers without being confident that they are equipped with all the necessary tools to professionally respond to any sort of emergency. We are very fortunate to have such a strong team.
