Seniors want to be able to stay mobile and independent within their own homes. With senior home care, aging adults in St. Catharines are able to benefit from one-on-one personal care, while carrying on with their daily routines.
With the support of a caregiver, elderly loved ones can exercise greater control over their daily lives and participate in activities that bring them joy, such as fishing, gardening, and sightseeing.
Home care is more affordable and offers families greater flexibility. When deciding whether home care is the best alternative for your loved one, it is beneficial to evaluate their care needs. Most seniors benefit from one-on-one care in their own homes as it allows them to stay close to their communities.
Such familiarity offers comfort to aging adults. Caregivers also act as companions, providing seniors with a shoulder to lean on. This allows caregivers and seniors to strengthen their bond.
Seniors with specialized needs benefit greatly from home care. Home caregivers are able to provide personal care and devout their full attention to your loved ones. Elderly folks with cognitive conditions, such as dementia and Alzheimer's, are able to maintain some level of independence with the support of a professional at-home caregiver.
Knowing your elderly loved is with a care professional in the safety of their own home gives families peace of mind. At the same time, it brings a sense of comfort to seniors who've formed great attachments to their community.
We personalize care according to your loved one's needs. A care professional will conduct an initial assessment to determine the type of care required, the time commitment, and if any transportation support will be needed. We create a shortlist of caregivers who could best meet your loved one's care needs, and whose personality will compliment theirs the best.
By matching caregivers based on their ability to bond with the client, we can ensure strong relationships of trust are formed between the client and the caregiver. This promotes open communication, ensuring seniors feel comfortable voicing their needs and concerns.
Our care team regularly conducts reviews and makes updates to the care plan based on discussions with the family and caregiver. This allows us to provide the best quality care to seniors in and around St. Catharines.
At ConsidraCare, we are always looking to expand our team of caregivers. Currently, we have open positions in St. Catherines.
Caregivers may be asked to prepare meals, do some light housekeeping, and help transport patients to and from their appointments. They are responsible for preventing falls and helping seniors stay mobile and active.
