Additional Information

Directed by clients but working as a partner, caregivers become the hands of the client.  This enables participation in enjoyable activities that may not be possible without assistance. Companion and social visits allows the client to continue acting independently in activities currently unaffected by physical limitations. The result is a relationship of trust and mutual respect. It also promotes dignity when the client later needs to ask for additional assistance with activities of daily living while aging in place.

… throughout Dick’s illness, your knowledgeable and trained staff met his needs with a grand mixture of humor and compassion. As Dick’s physical and cognitive needs grew, we worked together to find solutions to the day-to-day problems of movement and reasoning. He smiled when his caregivers arrived and seemed to enjoy time spent with them. Your staff eased Dick’s transition from hospital to a care facility and supported his adaptation to new surroundings…they brought out the best in Dick, allowing him as much independence as possible, challenging his mind and making him laugh. I thank you and them for maintaining that quality of life throughout his final year.
