Personal Care Service
Assistance bathing, dressing, etc.
Sometimes it’s just daily tasks that you or your loved ones need assistance with. Personal Care services are non-medical assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) like bathing, grooming, and dressing.
Meal Prep Service
Meal or snack prep
Proper nutrition is vital for elders living on their own. Meal Preparation service is both a helping hand in the kitchen and a helpful reminder that it’s time to eat.
Grocery shopping can be physically challenging for many elders. Our shopping service can assist by helping to make a grocery list, doing the shopping, and putting away the groceries.
Dr’s appointments, etc.
Visits to doctors and other appointments can be difficult for some elders to manage alone. Our companions provide one-on-one round trip accompaniment for shopping and appointments.
Multiple services at same visit
Often times your needs can’t be covered by one single service type. For example maybe assistance is needed with both Personal Care and Shopping.
