Here are three questions to help your family figure out the right qualifications for your situation:
1. Does a loved one need assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) like toileting, dressing, eating, etc? A CNA or HHA is probably most appropriate.
2. Does a loved one require more specialized care, like catheterization or wound dressing? Some special needs cases require an LPN in addition to CNAs or HHAs.
3. Is a loved one transitioning between different types of care? Our Geriatric Care Managers are best suited for this type of work.
Different types of elderly care include Adult Day Care, Homemaking Services, In Home Care, Home Health Aides, Assisted Living Facilities, and Nursing Homes. How do they all compare? Read a full discussion here.
Oftentimes a senior can remain in their home and rely on partial help from family caretakers. This will drastically reduce the costs of In Home Care. Intangible benefits of staying at home include the peace of mind that comes with living in a comfortable and familiar setting. Regardless of which path is right for your family it’s good to know there are options available. We can help. Give us a call at 610-359-1649.

"Lisa, about to go away for Easter. Thanks for your message. The caregivers you sent were lovely, caring and very professional. We would be happy to use them again should the occasion arise. I hope they were happy with the time they spent with us. Thanks so much Lisa. I appreciate the email. Best,"

"Kim, Several days have gone by since mom died, and we all want you to know how very grateful we are for your wonderful, insightful, compassionate care. We don't know what we would have done without you and Naomi helping us navigate, but we do know that mom's last few years, which were so painful for her, would have been a great deal harder for her and for us. Thank you for being willing to step in and out of the case as the Hospice involvement shifted. Thanks for always acting with such a lovely balance of warmth and professionalism. Thank you for, the first time I met you in person, giving me a huge hug. Thanks for wrestling with the pill tower and the prescriptions. Thanks for being a strong link to the doctors and a strong support to mom. We are so appreciative."
