Caregivers: Everyday Living with Dignity
You may need assistance with activities of daily living (known as ADLs) if you’ve had an injury, severe illness, mental setback, or difficulty with memory, balance, or coordination. ADLs are essential self-care tasks such as eating, bathing, dressing, using the bathroom, and other personal hygiene tasks.
It can be frustrating, at times, not to be able to do simple things, but our caregivers have a wealth of experience helping our clients live their daily lives with dignity. They also help you move safely throughout your day and provide medication reminders to ensure that prescriptions are followed correctly.
Families appreciate the peace of mind that comes from having a trained home health aide there to help if a medical or safety emergency should arise. Having a caregiver in the home takes a load off the minds of busy family members. Our caregivers communicate with family members to keep them up to date on any new developments.
Companions: Stay Socially Active
Sometimes limited mobility or other challenges makes it difficult to stay socially active, and that can get lonely. Our companions will accompany you through your day, providing conversation and fellowship, assisting with light household chores, and helping prepare meals.
Too much time alone can be unhealthy, but it’s not always easy to go out and meet other people. A companion offers social stimulation and good company. Most are trained in healthcare so they can notice changes in your physical or mental health. The earlier a problem is detected, the sooner it can be addressed, sometimes averting a crisis.
We carefully match caregivers and companions with clients to make sure their personalities complement one another. This is an essential feature in what is often a very long-term relationship.
Choosing the right caregiver or companion is vitally important to your health, safety, and happiness. We pride ourselves on screening, hiring and training the highest quality caregivers. Our hiring process is rigorous and highly selective. Currently, less than one quarter of applicants for caregiving positions receive offers to work for us.
Our registered nurses, aides, and companions are employees of Allegiant Home Care, not independent contractors. We take great care in finding those most suited to each client’s physical needs, personality, dietary preferences, and culture. All have background checks, drug screens, and ongoing health evaluations to give you further peace of mind.
