Many of our clients find that help with their grocery shopping is a huge relief. Shopping trips can be stressful and sometimes dangerous, requiring seniors to drive, carry heavy bags, put things away, and so forth. There are many potential hazards that present themselves when it comes to shopping. In addition to general fatigue, seniors are at an increased risk of slipping and falling or dropping things, not to mention the perils of driving.
Our expert caregivers love to help with grocery shopping, no matter how much assistance your loved one needs. Whether it’s making sure their grocery list is complete, going along to help at the store, or just making the entire trip themselves, our caregivers make the task of shopping as easy as possible for the seniors they help while still respecting their dignity and abilities.
Have you noticed that your loved one’s home sometimes seems to be in disarray? For many seniors, even light cleaning becomes a grueling chore. When physical and mental disabilities are at play, cleaning isn’t every senior’s top priority. We can help make their life easier and more comfortable in this regard!
Our caregivers are happy to help with daily cleaning such as doing dishes, dusting, sweeping, laundry, and so forth. Again, our help can minimize the risk of slips and falls for seniors while ensuring that they’re living comfortably. If you’ve been shouldering the burden of cleaning up around your loved one’s home, let us take the reins!
Oftentimes, senior citizens find themselves with no one to talk to during the day. If they’re not involved in any social activities, it can be easy for seniors to spend an entire day with only their television or radio to keep them company. If you’re worried that your loved one is lonely or doesn’t have any meaningful ways to pass their time, Senior Helpers can help.
Whether it’s doing jigsaw puzzles, scrapbooking, reading the newspaper, or just having a nice talk, our caregivers love to provide companionship to seniors. These services can be particularly valuable for seniors who are suffering from Alzheimer’s and dementia, providing them with a valuable opportunity for mental stimulation.
Seniors who live on their own may find little incentive to cook for themselves. Without family in the home to cook for, it can be a burdensome chore to cook for one. Furthermore, financial hardship and physical ailments such as arthritis can make it difficult to go about cooking healthy meals. As a result, many seniors don’t eat as well as they should. If you’re worried about your loved one not getting adequate nutrition, rely on our cooking services to help ease your mind.
Our caregivers are happy to help with food preparation on different scales. Whether your loved one just needs help preparing ingredients for their favorite meals, or they need their meals entirely prepared for them, we’ll make sure that they get the help they need so that they can eat well. We’ll even keep an eye on their nutrition, so you don’t need to worry that they’re only eating unhealthy foods.”
Senior Helpers caregivers are experts when it comes to Alzheimer’s and dementia care. In fact, Senior Helpers has developed a revolutionary care plan for seniors who are suffering from Alzheimer’s and dementia. Our Senior Gems®1 program is designed to identify how much independence your loved one can enjoy by classifying them in one of the gem stages.
By identifying their level of ability, our caregivers can help clients stay as mentally and physically active as possible. This emphasis on independence helps Alzheimer’s and dementia sufferers to feel as comfortable and happy as possible while continuing to enjoy their favorite activities. Whether they need round-the-clock care, or just someone to regularly check in on them, Senior Helpers can provide your loved one with the care they need so that you can have peace of mind.
When you reach a certain age, even getting dressed can be an ordeal! Hard-to-reach zippers, buttons that require dexterous fingers, and shoelaces that take lots of bending and stretching to tie can all be difficult for seniors to manage. For some seniors, other tasks, such as showering, can be just as hard as well as hazardous, for many.
Providing grooming and hygiene assistance with dignity is another expert service we’re proud to offer. Whether it’s daily care, a few times a week, or on an as-needed basis, we want to help the seniors we serve to look and feel their best every day.
These are just a few of the comprehensive expert services that Senior Helpers is proud to offer to the clients we serve. We’ll work with you and your loved one to develop a plan that’s right for them – that keeps them feeling comfortable and happy so you can enjoy a peace of mind. Contact us today to learn more about the services we offer and how we can help you and your loved one enjoy a better quality of life!
