Home Care is a general term that encompasses
a wide range of community-based services.
Conversation and Companionship
VetAttend caregivers are available to provide clients company and engage them in conversation. Social contact is proven to enhance the health, happiness and quality of life of seniors.
VetAttend caregivers prepare hot, delicious, and nutritious meals, allowing clients to help with preparation according to their ability. Many seniors do not have the opportunity to eat a well-balanced meal, so this service helps seniors get the nutrition they need to enjoy healthier living.
These services can be done in either the client’s home or the Laundromat and include washing, drying, ironing and putting things away, and are done according to the client’s preferences.
Light housekeeping services include vacuuming, dusting, sweeping and mopping floors; cleaning bathrooms, kitchens (sinks, appliances, counters, taking out trash), straightening all rooms, organizing closets and drawers, and cleaning any interior windows that can be reached without a ladder. VetAttend does not provide outdoor cleaning or maintenance. Our caregivers clean all areas used by the client.
Our caregivers shop for groceries at stores of client preference, as well as run errands, such as picking up prescriptions or going to the post office. Clients choose to say home or, if able, help with the shopping and errands. This is as an excellent way to stay active and engaged.
We provide escort to other care services to include taking clients to medical appointments or wherever else a client may want to go.
Although our caregivers cannot administer medications, they help ensure that clients take their own medication as prescribed. VetAttend caregivers assist with opening medication containers, reading labels and reminding the client when it is time to take a dose.
