Companion Care and Personal Care Services

Our personal care services include all kinds of non-medical care that seniors may need in their homes. We can assist with the tasks associated with personal hygiene (bathing, grooming, etc.) as well as assisting with walking and exercising. In addition we can provide help with tasks that have become too much for a senior, like cooking, laundry, and light housekeeping

Providing Companionship

Personal care means more than just providing for physical needs—it means providing companionship. We love our Professional Home Care Assistants and we know that you will too! They are like family and are ready to assist your loved one with tasks that they enjoy around the home, but that are just too much for them to tackle alone—like cooking, gardening, or even personal hobbies. We can also initiate trips to the grocery or hardware store, drives in the country, or accompany your loved one to community events outside the home.

24/7 Care in Your Home

If you wish, our team members can be with your loved one right through the day, providing 24 hour in home care. You'll never have to worry about them being alone at night, or being injured as they attempt to handle tasks on their own during the day.

We will work in shifts to ensure that caring, encouraging support is always near. If an individual only needs a caregiver for a few hours, we can also help, providing incidental transportation services, or help with errands, when our clients need it.

Alzheimer's and Dementia Care at Home

If your loved one is beginning to experience dementia, in home care can be a great option. Many people who are in the early stages of Alzheimer’s and dementia can still live at home with some strategic support. Hiring an in home caregiver is a wonderful way to help them maintain their independence for as long as possible and also remain safe.

All human beings want the company of others, although the amount that we need varies. A senior with Alzheimer's or dementia may need home care assistance, including help with nutrition, and assistance with housework. Our caregivers know how to avoid being intrusive, giving introverted clients the room they need to thrive, while being there at mealtimes and other occasions when they appreciate interaction.

An adult with dementia who is more extroverted, may want conversation while they are cooking, crafting, or doing light gardening. We enjoy those times, providing support with the aspects of their favorite hobbies that a client can no longer handle on their own.

After Surgery in Home Care

Seniors may require assistance after surgery; in home care can help them transition as they return home from rehab or the hospital. Our professional care assistants can help you to heal, by offering support with tasks that you may not be able to do. They can remain with your loved one full time, or offer assistance for a few hours a day on a regular basis, until a client fully recovers.

Respite Care and Short-Term Home Care Assistance

If you care for a spouse or another loved one, there may be times that you need to take some time off. This is where our respite care services may be invaluable. Everyone needs to properly care for themselves. Regular breaks prevent burnout for family caregivers. Our home health aides can provide you with respite care that lasts a few hours, days, or weeks, so that you feel revitalized.

Physical Activity Programs for Seniors

Many of our older clients can participate fully in a regular program of exercise, and we work with a physical trainer who has developed workouts that improve flexibility, maintain muscle strength, and improve balance. If a senior has started to experience falls, regular exercise that improves their balance and strength in their calves, thighs and core, can help to decrease the risk of future incidents.

All of our exercise programs are designed by licensed physical therapist and certified personal trainer, Lizza McIntosh. Lizza also trains each of our caregivers, so they are properly equipped to demonstrate exercises, and guide each client who chooses a daily program of exercise. Clients also have the option to choose a one-on-one program of exercise with Lizza, herself.

Questions about our caregivers

Many of our caregivers are CNAs or CNAs in training. All of our Professional Home Care Assistants are trained for a minimum of 8 hours before working with any client. We follow all state of Kentucky standards for training our caregivers. Once the initial training is finished, new caregivers work with a case manager who will verify that the new caregiver is doing things correctly. We also conduct monthly training seminars for all of our employees so that they may keep their knowledge up to date and improve their skills.

Yes, we do.

Yes. When we are bringing in a new caregiver, that person will be accompanied by a case manager or the owner, Sue Henderson, so that everyone can get to know each other and feel comfortable with the new situation. This is especially important if the client is having any memory issues. We strive to provide continuity of care so that a loved one gets to know their caregiver(s) and so that they feel secure in that person’s care.

Yes 🙂  It rarely happens, but every once in a while two people’s personalities just don’t mesh. If we find that your loved one and your caregiver aren’t very compatible, we will do our best to find another home care assistant who is a better fit.

Questions about pricing and payment

It is difficult for us to list our pricing because each situation is different. Please give us a call or fill out our contact form and we will be in touch to find out more about your specific needs. Once we know your situation, we can provide you with a free estimate of the cost of care. 

We are not Medicare or Medicaid certified because in-home care is not covered by Medicaid or Medicare in the state of Kentucky or Ohio. We do take long-term care insurance. We also take workman’s comp in the event that you’ve been injured and need home care assistance while you recover.
