Meal Planning & Preparation
Our team provides a variety of meal services that help seniors get the nutrients they need.
Our team can help with:
Providing a tasty meal
Catering for a specific dietary need
Safety, because they may no longer be cooking for themselves
Providing social companionship
There are also psychological benefits to reminiscing about helping in the kitchen as a child.
As part of our personal care service, our caregivers can provide you or your loved one medication reminders. However, they are not allowed to distribute medications or offer medication information, that must be performed by an RN. We do have an RN on staff who does Medication Management. That is an additional service and must be scheduled separately; to learn more, please visit our Medication Management page.
Companionship & Emotional Support
At AllCare, the people we provide care for are not viewed as clients, but as family. We see it as our duty to enrich their lives with an array of stimulating activities, such as:
It’s always important for people to stay on top of their physical and mental wellness. We help seniors do so in a variety of ways, including:
range of motion
dietary planning assistance
We can provide incidental transportation for many of your daily needs. These can include shopping, errands, and doctor appointments. This can be part of your care plan and can be at no additional care charge.*
*Only if you or your loved one’s vehicle is used. Otherwise there will be a charge for mileage reimbursement for caregiver using their personal vehicle.
Helping With Pet Care
We know your pet is important to you, and additionally, there are medical studies to prove pet ownership is good for your health. Seniors who own cats or dogs are proven to go to the doctor less often than those who don’t. In a study of one hundred Medicare patients, even the most highly stressed dog owners had a 21 percent lower level of contact with their physician than non-owners.
We only hire the most qualified and compassionate caregivers that pass our rigorous screening process. Each member of our team is approved by our RN as a “State Certified Home Care Aide”.
