Once you have determined that your elderly loved one needs assistance, it is important to honor their wish to remain happy and independent in their own home. But for your own peace of mind, you need to know that they are completely safe and cared for in all situations.
Where to Start: Our Initial In-Home Care Interview
Even when you are close to a senior family member, it can be difficult to know their specific needs. And in some cases, they might be apprehensive to mention their more personal needs.
The complimentary, initial in-home care interview with a Senior Helpers consultant can help you survey your options. Together you can discuss your loved one's needs and our services to determine what is best for your entire family. We will cover:
Your family's specific goals
Your loved one's daily plan design and schedule
Pricing and payment methods
Ongoing communication and follow-up planAt Senior Helpers, we place the utmost importance on ensuring our caregivers receive the latest training and are fully credentialed.
Our caregivers are thoroughly screened before they can become employees of Senior Helpers and each has the opportunity to participate in the Senior Helpers University program to attain additional education.
Senior Helpers complies with all national and licensing requirements so you can be assured that our caregiver is properly credentialed to perform the level of care that your senior loved one needs.
Our professional, trained caregivers take a positive perspective toAlzheimer's and dementia care - our unique Senior Gems™ Approach. This method focuseson what they can do, not what they cannot do.
We also work closely with dementia expert and registered occupational therapist, Teepa Snow (MS, OTR/L, FAOTA). Her Senior Gems™ classification system (based on Cognitive Disability Theory) allows us to understand which stage of dementia the person is experiencing so we can put together the best plan and select the best caregiver for that individual.
