People often ask me what we do. They understand medical in-home care, but don't understand what makes our service different. First of all, our certified caregivers are not medical professionals. But that doesn't mean they're not fully trained to properly care for you or your loved ones.
Our video and in-person training program includes:
Understanding HIPAA and Confidentiality
Consumer Choice and Independent Living Philosophy
Understanding Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)
Understanding Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs)
Physical Changes of Aging
Effects of Aging on Emotions and the Five Senses
How to Prevent Pressure Ulcers
Proper Hand Washing
How to Protect Against Infection
Recognizing Common Infections
Transferring People the Right Way
Dealing with Difficult Behaviors
Assistive Devices to Help Seniors and People with Disabilities
Meal Preparation and Feeding
Assistance with Self-Administered Medications
Our Pittsburgh employees are more than just direct care workers performing a job. They're true companions who offer the best care possible with an extra dose of kindness.
Here are some of the customizable services we provide:
Supervision and Overseeing of Activities
Transportation and Escort
Meal Preparation, Serving, and Clean Up
Assistance with Eating and Drinking
Assistance with Dressing
Assistance with Walking/Wheel Chair, Cane
Changing Adult Diapers
Assistance with Exercising and Therapy
Of course, we also offer respite care for the times family caregivers need a break!
If you or your loved one needs care, but doesn't need a nurse or other medical aide, an in-home direct care professional can provide you with the affordable care you're looking for. Just make sure you hire someone who is bonded and insured and who has passed a background check. You can never be too careful.
