Providing Everything You Need
Errands, Activities and Doctor Appointments
Let us help with grocery shopping (includes ordering curbside), trips to the pharmacy and physicians’ offices. We also provide assistance with errands, personal shopping, social outings, exercise routines and gym visits, club activities, movies, and other meaningful activities in the home. As appropriate, our Caregivers can even help facilitate virtual family visits for relatives.
Extensive Personal Care; Palliative Support
Depending on the physical needs of the client, their medical diagnoses, family support, and special requirements, WeCare will arrange for Caregivers who are appropriately skilled for your loved one’s care. We will always make sure that the scheduled Caregivers have an understanding of the medical concerns and the skill level to handle the care-tasks needed.
Should your loved one be at the end of their journey, we are able to provide bed bound, total care with a gentle touch, and bring quality of life and compassion to every moment. Our goal is to allow loved ones to focus on their important family relationships, rather than the daily tasks involved in personal care.
Hygiene, Bathing, Dressing, Grooming, & Exercise
As part of the initial evaluation, we will determine the client’s preferred routine for daily activities such as bathing, dressing, grooming and hygiene, at all levels, whether it be verbal reminders or extensive hands-on care. Because we are guests in our clients’ homes, we want to honor preferences, routines, and traditions, as maintaining a sense of normalcy is vital. Have there been, falls or trips to the ER? Let us help ensure that your loved one is maintaining day to day activities, and can remain safely at home. Caregivers could even assist clients to continue physical therapy exercises in order to maintain mobility and reduce the risk of falls.
Are medications being taken at the correct times, or at all? The #1 reason people move into facilities is inability to take medications per doctors’ orders. Our Caregivers can remind clients to take medications correctly, assist them to reorder, and pick up from the pharmacy. If family is unavailable to fill medication boxes, First Royalty Home Care can refer you to outside services for medication management and oversight.
Nursing Home Care
We will work alongside the facility staff to provide an enhanced quality of care for clients residing in a nursing home, assisted living or memory care community. Should this be temporary due to a hospitalization, change in condition, or adjustments to a new medication or a new environment, or if you wish to have one-on-one care with your loved one at any time, we will offer consistent staffing to give you additional peace of mind.
Nutrition, Hydration and Homemaking
Are you concerned about special diet needs, weight loss following doctors’ orders? Our Caregivers can assist with the daily tasks of meal planning, preparation, fluid intake and ensuring a clean, healthy home environment. While we aren’t dieticians, we can follow basic dietary guidelines when preparing food like “no added salt”, “low carbohydrates”, fluid restrictions, or avoiding foods that are contraindicated with certain medications. We will also help with daily/weekly household chores like laundry, dishes, vacuuming, taking the garbage to the curb, etc. We believe that a healthy client needs a healthy environment.
Coordination with in-home medical services and Aging Life Care professionals
We will work alongside hospice and home health to pick up care where they leave off and communicate concerns or changes in conditions to the appropriate agency representative. Should we identify the need for home nursing or therapy services, we will provide you with a short list of trusted agencies in town, which would be paid for by medical health insurance. During the evaluation, we may make recommendations for safety in the home like furniture adjustments, lighting, or clutter removal. If the client’s family lives out of town or needs more extensive oversight beyond the realm of home care, we will refer to Aging Life Care professionals to help the family manage any complex dynamics.
