Decisions about a senior loved one’s care are never easy. It can be very emotional thinking about a parent or relative needing assistance with their daily routine. Live-in home care from Home Care Assistance of Waterloo and Kitchener provides families with reassurance during this difficult time, offering around-the-clock care and monitoring to seniors that promotes what matters most – your loved one’s safety and independence. We are proud to be recognized as the leaders in live-in home care and invite you to take advantage of our comprehensive care services, 24/7 availability, and 100% satisfaction guarantee.

24-Hour Care Tailored to Individual Needs

Whether your loved one has experienced a fall, hospitalization, or recent health condition requiring 24-hour assistance or he or she simply needs help maintaining independence, allow our experienced and compassionate live-in caregivers to assist with daily activities which may include:

Caring Companionship

Caregivers aren’t just responsible for performing menial tasks and chores around the house for your loved ones and making sure they take their medications and get to their doctor’s appointments on time. Oftentimes, they also form a strong personal and emotional bond with the people in their care. This close relationship creates a healthy social platform for your elderly loved one and makes them feel appreciated and valued. It can also ward off any feelings of loneliness, confusion, and uncertainty they might otherwise encounter if they’re left to fend for themselves. Having a caregiver around is an excellent source of encouragement and comfort because they participate in activities with their charges such as:

  • Reading
  • Letter writing
  • Playing mind-stimulating games
  • Engaging them in various hobbies
  • Accompanying them to various social engagements or church
  • Having lively conversations with them

Meal Preparation

Another aspect of caring for elderly people is making sure that they consistently eat well. Meal preparation can take a lot of effort as it involves the following details:

  • Menu planning
  • Grocery shopping
  • Preparation time
  • Assisting seniors while eating and drinking
  • Keeping up with food expiration dates
  • Cleaning out the fridge
  • Strictly adhering to dietary restrictions

Personal Care and Medication Reminders

Providing personal care and reminding seniors when to take their medications can be a very daunting, time consuming, and stressful undertaking if you’re also managing your own household, working a full-time job, raising a family, and trying to uphold your own personal care habits. Our professional caregivers are fully qualified to care for your elderly family members. We will help in the following ways:

  • Bathing and showering
  • Personal grooming
  • Overall hygiene
  • Dressing
  • Going to the bathroom
  • Incontinence care
  • Transportation
  • Walking assistance
  • Medication monitoring
  • Exercising
  • Post-surgical care
  • Alzheimer’s and dementia care

Homemaking

As mentioned, it can be difficult—almost impossible—to keep track of your own life and the needs of your elderly loved one. With the help of Home Care Assistance, you won’t have to choose between one or the other. Simply tell us what your loved one needs and we’ll make sure it gets done to their standards. This includes:

  • Reminding them of appointments
  • Supervising home maintenance contractors
  • Answering the phone
  • Organizing their bills for payment
  • Helping them with light housework
  • Caring for their pets
  • Making sure their living environment is as comfortable and fresh as possible

Errands and Transportation

Running errands or transporting themselves from one location to another can take quite a toll on seniors. It’s especially taxing if they have an illness or disability. Our caregivers can accompany your elderly loved one in the following ways:

  • Doctor appointments
  • Picking up prescriptions
  • Shopping
  • Collecting dry-cleaning
  • Helping them maintain an active social life
  • Attending community meetings
  • Accompanying them to personal care appointments (i.e. hairdresser)

Technology Handling

An increasing number of seniors are embracing various forms of technology such as tablets, mobile phones, and laptop computers. The newest generation of elderly people is incredibly tech savvy and studies have proven that they’re reaping significant benefits from their efforts. Technology has allowed them to engage in the following:

  • Video calls to distant relatives and friends
  • Interactive computer games to help keep them mentally stimulated
  • Better protection of social security information and other important accounts
  • Home safety with accurate GPS capabilities
