In Home Personal Care Services

Grooming and Hygiene

Home Health Solutions Group’ goal is to assist our clients with their personal care routines so they can look and feel their best. Studies have proven how effective and positive it is for elder, older adults and seniors to have regular hygiene and grooming. For clients who fear falling while bathing, or have physical or cognitive limitations that make bath-time difficult, our caregivers are there to help. We can assist with shampooing, shaving, hair combing and styling, nail and skin care, oral care and other grooming needs

Mobility Assistance

Remaining active in your golden years is one of the best ways to maintain the quality of life. Our caregivers help elders, older adults and seniors remain active by assisting them in getting from place to place in comfort and safety.

Transferring and Repositioning

One of our top priorities is helping our clients move around their homes. This may include getting in and out of bed, chairs, and wheelchairs. Proper transferring and positioning can contribute to reducing bedsore risks. This also helps reduce muscle atrophy, while encouraging proper breathing and digestion. It can also lower the risk of falls and injuries, as well as keep our clients as comfortable as possible.

Toileting and Incontinence Care

We understand the sensitive nature of toileting and incontinence care for our clients. Without proper help, elder, older adults and seniors can face many issues. These may include skin infections, unpleasant odors, and general hygiene problems. Our caregivers offer compassionate, dignified help with these personal aspects of daily living.

Nutrition

Maintaining a healthy, nutritious diet can affect well-being and vitality across the board. In fact, many of our elders, older adults and seniors have prescribed meal plans they must stick to for health reasons. Whether you are looking for help adhering to a special diet or just want to improve nutrition, our caregivers can help. They also provide companionship, turning meals into social time by engaging with elder, older adults and seniors while they eat. The positive environment helps them feel more relaxed. Supervision also makes certain your loved ones get proper nourishment. Our caregiver’s help certain clients stay on prescribed diets to prevent or control a wide variety of medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis. Our caregivers also help clients eat nutritious menus to promote disease prevention, healing, and healthy living. We make an extra effort to turn meals into enjoyable social time by engaging our clients in conversation over food.

Medication Reminders

Although our caregiverscannot administer medications, they can assist in ensuring that clients take their medication as prescribed. Our caregiverscan help with opening medication containers, reading labels, and reminding the client when it is time for the next dose. Because our caregivers spend considerable time with clients, they are often the first to notice changes in physical and mental health. Caregivers monitor client status by direct observation, and by noting and recording vital signs under the direction of health care professionals. Observation and Reporting – This is one of the most important services caregivers do. It includes monitoring a client’s status, and reporting concerns and changes to a supervisor regarding the client’s physical well-being, functional level, cognitive status, skin condition, mood, mobility, interactions with others, and eating and sleeping patterns. Vital Signs – Most Family Resource caregivers are trained to monitor and document vital signs, including pulse, temperature and respiration

How Do We Establish Personal Care Services?

At Home Health Solutions Group, we start by listening. We want to know the personal care concerns you have about your family member.

  • Are there safety issues you have noticed?
  • Changes in health or hygiene?
  • Is your loved one at risk for falls, reluctant to venture outside, or do they have mobility issues?
Perhaps you simply are concerned that your loved one many not be taking their medications correctly, or you wish to have a steady point of contact for the peace of mind of knowing your family member’s status on a regular basis. Before services start, we will meet our new client and family at home and have a conversation so we can understand the personal care needs. Our comprehensive in-home assessment with the senior and family will go into detail about the issues they are experiencing. This in-home assessment will result in a care plan that details the tasks our caregivers will perform. Meeting at home will also give us an opportunity to assess the home situation and make health and safety recommendations. If needed, we will contact medical professionals for specific instructions relevant to caring for chronic conditions, especially if there has been a recent hospital or acute care facility discharge. We will then assign a wonderful caregiver matched to your loved one has needs, and start service.
