About

Helping Hand

When we come out to meet with you, we will complete a detailed Personal/Safety Assessment, about your loved one. Then an individualized Personal Care Plan is developed which includes:

  • How our Caregiver(s) will support the client's Activities of Daily Living (ADL)
     

  • Any assistance needed with ambulation or transfers from the bed to the wheelchair and vice versa.
     

  • Specific suggestions for improving the safety of the client or the home.
     

  • Medication reminders and scheduling.
     

  • Special diet and nutritional care.
     

  • We then complete the Personal Care Plan with your selected Caregiver's schedule.
     

  • Possible introduction of a nutritionist or social worker, to complete the plan.
