Our caregivers will accompany clients on trips to doctor appointments, beauty salons / barbershops, shopping, religious services, club meetings, outings – anywhere the client wishes to go. Part of healthy living is being able to explore the world. Continuous exposure to the outdoors is good for the mind, body and soul.
Elimination is an important and normal bodily function. However, it is usually an activity that is private and one that is not openly discussed with others. It is easy to assume that an individual feels embarrassed when being assisted with this function; however, our caregivers strive to provide an acceptable, comfortable and safe environment for all types of toileting needs.
Many seniors have a difficulty accepting assistance, especially after being independent for most of their lives. Our caregivers understand the feelings this can cause and always make the extra effort to make the environment at mealtime special.
Alleva Home Care provides only non-medical care. For that reason, our caregivers are not allowed to administer medications, but can assist our clients by opening the medication containers, reading labels to ensure the correct medication and dosage are taken, overseeing the refill of daily containers, or simply remind clients that it’s time to take a medication.
The inability to control urination or defecation is embarrassing to individuals and can become unsanitary if not taken care of correctly. Our caregivers understand the sensitivity of this situation and approach it in an effective and dignified manner.
Transferring and Positioning
Moving or placing a person into a correct posture position encourages the functional activity of the body’s many systems. It assists in eliminating pressure areas on the skin, reducing atrophy and stiffening of muscles, encourages proper breathing, digestion, and elimination.
Mobility and Motion Exercise
Activity and exercise are vital to a healthy lifestyle. The benefits of movement to both physical and mental health are seen in everyday life. Those individuals who keep a physically active lifestyle tend to benefit by increasing stamina, strengthening the heart, lowering blood pressure, improving digestion and sleep.
Bathing is vital to an individual’s sense of well-being. It refreshes the soul, provides relaxation while cleansing the skin and stimulating circulation.
Grooming and Dressing
We can help button buttons, fasten belts, tie shoes, put on socks, wash and comb hair – all the daily things that help our clients feel good about themselves, and their appearance.
Caregivers will shop with or without the client accompanying them. They can shop at any store the client prefers, and can use any coupons provided.
Caregivers can run errands such as picking up drug prescriptions, going to the post office, going shopping, dropping-off and picking-up dry cleaning, arranging appointments. If you need it done, we will do it.
A clean home is a happy home. Our caregivers understand the importance of sanitary living and are committed to doing everything possible to keep you in a clean living environment. Light housekeeping includes vacuuming, dusting, sweeping and mopping floors, cleaning bathrooms, kitchens, appliances, taking out the trash, straightening all rooms, organizing closets and drawers, cleaning any interior windows that can be reached without a ladder, as well as care of house plants, answering the telephone, changing linens and making beds, and pet care for our beloved animal companions.
Whether its conversation and company, or just eating a meal together, having someone to sit and visit with can help make for a happier, healthier life.
We understand the importance of sustaining an interesting and active life. Whether it’s enjoying a game of cards, board games, or a walk in the park, Alleva Home Care can help our clients stay active in mind, body, and spirit within the confines of their homes or outdoors.
Many seniors lack the strength to do their own laundry. Our caregivers are trained to do the best job possible to ensure that your clothes are clean and fresh. Laundry services can be done in either the client’s home or the local Laundromat.
