Caregiving Services in San Diego
Studies show that most seniors would rather age in their home than in an Assisted Living Facility, but the natural aging process can make that difficult over time. GrandCare Home Care provides in-home care services that can help prolong independent living.
Loneliness and depression is all too common among seniors. Sometimes a regular visit from someone who is willing to listen and provide companionship can make all the difference.
For Seniors who need a little extra help, GrandCare’s highly trained caregivers can assist with Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s) such as helping with meals, personal care and running errands.
For those who need a higher level of care, GrandCare caregivers can provide bathing, personal hygiene, and incontinence care.
Personal Care Services
Grooming, and Hygiene
Studies have proven how effective and positive it is for seniors to receive regular hygiene and grooming. For many Seniors, their fear of falling or physical limitation make keeping up with personal hygiene very difficult. GrandCare caregivers can assist with bathing, shampooing, hair combing and styling, and other grooming needs.
Remaining active has documented health benefits and can also improve one’s mental and emotional wellbeing. Our caregivers help seniors remain active by assisting them in moving around the house and by going on outings.
Transferring and Positioning
GrandCare caregivers are trained in proper transferring techniques to assist our clients in getting in and out of bed, as well as transferring to and from chairs and wheelchairs. Proper transferring and positioning can contribute to reducing bedsore risks. This also helps reduce muscle atrophy, while encouraging proper breathing and digestion. It can also lower the risk of falls and injuries.
Toileting and Incontinence Care
Toileting and incontinence care is a very sensitive issue for most Seniors. Our caregivers are specially trained to provide compassionate, dignified help with these personal aspects of daily living. Left unattended, incontinence can cause skin infections, unpleasant odors, and general hygiene problems.
Studies have shown that proper nutrition can play an important role in improving the quality of life for Seniors. Whether you’re looking for help adhering to a special diet or just want to improve nutrition, our caregivers can help by providing companionship and support.
We make an extra effort to turn meals into enjoyable social time by engaging our clients in conversation over food.
In-Home Companionship and Care Services
Conversation and Companionship
Studies show that seniors who stay social and engaged have a better quality of life. This can also help prevent depression and general cognitive decline. Our caregivers provide friendly company, conversation, and mealtime companionship.
Preparing nutritious meals can be challenging for seniors. As a result, many Seniors tend to eat snack foods high in fat, carbohydrates or salt which can adversely affect chronic illnesses such as Congestive Heart Failure and Diabetes. Our caregivers can cook hot and wholesome meals to meet nutritional and dietary needs.
Our caregivers can take care of all laundry needs, either in the home or at a nearby laundromat. These services may include washing, drying, ironing, and putting clean laundry away.
Our caregivers are available to provide light housekeeping. Our services include vacuuming, dusting, sweeping, mopping, cleaning bathrooms (sinks, tubs, showers, and toilets), cleaning kitchens (sinks, appliances, counters, and taking out the trash), straightening all rooms, organizing closets and drawers, and cleaning any interior windows reachable without a ladder.
Getting around can be difficult for seniors, especially for those who are unable to drive. Our caregivers take care of this problem by running necessary errands. This can include grocery shopping and other errands, such as stopping at the pharmacy or post office. Your loved ones are welcome to stay home or come along for the ride as a way to stay active.
GrandCare’s caregivers can provide transportation to medical appointments, barbershops, beauty salons, and shopping. Sometimes just going to a park can make all the difference.
Although our caregivers cannot administer medications, they can assist in ensuring that clients take their medication as prescribed. Our caregivers can help with opening medication containers, reading labels, and reminding the client when it is time for the next dose.
Paying particular attention to grooming can help a senior feel and look better. As a person ages, grooming can sometimes present physical challenges. Our caregivers assist clients with shampooing, shaving, hair combing and styling, and other grooming needs so seniors can look and feel their best.
