Protecting the dignity of those receiving care
while simultaneously enhancing their quality of life.
Grooming: Bathing and Hygiene
VetAttend caregivers helps clients look and feel their best by administering personal grooming services such as, washing and combing of hair and other grooming tasks that enable them to feel good about their appearance. Benefits of these services are: enhanced mental and physical well-being, uplifting of inner spirit, improved relaxation and improved circulation.
Feeding and Special Diet
Seniors often need help feeding themselves. This loss of independence can be difficult to accept. VetAttend understands this and makes the extra effort to turn mealtime into an enjoyable social time. Our caregivers helps clients eat a well balanced diet that provides the energy needed for active living and nutrients for disease prevention, healing and healthful living.
VetAttend caregivers assist clients as needed with mobility to help maintain as active a lifestyle as possible contributing to both physical and mental health benefits. Physical health benefits of activity include: increased stamina and energy, strengthened heart, lower blood pressure, improved digestion and sleep, lower stress levels, and increased mental alertness.
Transferring and Positioning
Proper transferring and positioning from or into beds and chairs eliminate pressure areas on the skin, reduce weakening and stiffening of muscles, and encourage proper breathing, digestion and elimination.

Through our caring approach VetAttend helps to lessen clients’ embarrassment associated with the need for toileting assistance. VetAttend staff is sensitive to the importance of helping our clients maintain dignity and self-esteem as they receive help with the activities of daily living.
