With our senior-focused services, including in home care, care coordination, senior living alternatives (senior community placement), and staffing services, we provide the options that can fit your needs so that you can make the right choice for you or a loved one.
Let A Place At Home help you or a loved one keep their independence and stay in the home they love.
We believe aging doesn’t have to mean moving away from the place where you feel safe and comfortable–there are ways to make everyday living easier. From companionship, to providing help with activities of daily living, to providing medication administration, our In Home Care options allow seniors to live happy and independent lives in the comfort of their own home.
Our caregivers are passionate professionals who serve with compassion. Caregivers receive continuous training on current healthcare trends, professional excellence and communication. And, all caregivers have access to a RN (Registered Nurse) by phone at all times so that you nor the caregiver are never alone. Our services include:
Companions provide assistance to seniors with everyday things such as transportation, hobby maintenance, stimulating mental awareness, errands, mail, help with social media interaction with family, and any other non medical need. Seniors look forward to the visits from their new friends and we find that these relationships established between the companion and senior are mutually satisfying.
Caregivers provide help around the house with such things as dusting, laundry, bed making, meal preparation, and other household chores. Much like the other in-home services, seniors know they can rely on a friendly face to come visit and take care of household tasks. Caregivers receive the same reliable training as the other in home services, and the services can be combined to assure that the senior is being taken care of according to their individual care plan.
Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) have specialized training for personal and restorative care. They provide assistance with activities of daily living, Alzheimer’s/dementia care, grooming and personal care, as well as serving as a reliable senior care companion. This level of care is ideal for seniors who need a higher level of help due to injuries or health that limits them from everyday functions. Seniors still enjoy the company of our caregivers but know that they can rely on them for the things that can make day-to-day living difficult.
Certified Medication Aides (CMAs) administer medications via various routes ensuring seniors are taking their medications according to doctor’s orders. The service is especially beneficial to those with Alzheimer’s or other dementias and provides families with the peace of mind that their loved one’s medication is safely and correctly administered.
Personal Care and Medication Administration services are guided by the staff RN. In these roles, the RN performs an initial assessment and creates a care plan for the client. The CNA or CMA is then trained on the specifics for that client to ensure consistent and accurate care. The RN continues to play a role in the client’s care by working with staff regarding the senior’s care and performing 60-day follow up assessments throughout the care of the client.
Our care coordination services were developed to assist seniors and families with a higher level of understanding and experience in navigating the sometimes complex and confusing healthcare system. This service differentiates A Place at Home from other home care companies by offering a professional level suite of services that includes healthcare advocacy and navigation, benefit assistance and interpretation, transition assistance, and medication management.
This service can encompass as much or as little help that is needed, including attending doctor’s appointments; coordinating specialists and surgeries; working with families to interpret results and recommendations; reviewing and discussing treatment options; and creating a healthcare portfolio to ensure a senior’s needs are understood and can be incorporated as part of the day-to-day care. With concierge nursing care, our professionals also can review and assist with interpreting insurance and veteran benefits.
After a surgery or release from a hospital or rehabilitation, our professionals assist families with getting back to their daily lives. Performing an assessment of the types of help a senior may need from grab bars, to specialized medical equipment, to needs for daily care and the everyday function of the household, seniors are assured that their return home will incorporate physician’s orders to allow for the highest level of health and wellness.
Numerous medications and administration times can become confusing and cumbersome. Our professionals work with pharmacists to pick up the medications, ensure they are correct, and fill medication sets. The company RN provides set-up visits to ensure seniors receive the correct medication per doctor’s orders and that medications are safely secured.
Sometimes seniors need to find the next place to call home. The need may stem from health, finances, or simply because it feels like the right time, but oftentimes finding the right community that suits the needs of the senior can be a confusing and time-consuming task. A Place at Home’s Senior Living Alternatives program is at no cost to the client. It is a personalized service that helps seniors and families identify the senior care community that fits their needs–whether it’s independent, assisted, memory, or long term care.
Our Senior Living Advisors are experts when it comes to identifying a senior living community that works for you. We’ve not only visited and placed our clients in these communities, but many of our Caregivers already provide services at these locations.
With a thorough understanding of the amenities, costs, available senior care services, activities and layout and design at each community, our Advisors can easily narrow down the options based on your criteria and arrange for private tours so that you can feel empowered to make the right decisions.
Knowing that you or your senior have a trusted advocate makes transitions much easier.
A fully staffed office or community is critical to the overall care of the patients or residents and to the proper functioning of a facility. Our service provides CNAs and CMAs to senior communities and health offices to fill in when there are staff shortages for short- or long-term needs. The availability of a certified staff member to step in and understand how to care for clients, be it checking vitals, running medication carts, clothing or bedding changes, dementia care, or bathing, gives peace of mind to families and the facility managers.
