COMMUNITY HELPING HANDS
RESPITE CARE FOR YOUR LOVED ONES!
Our personal care attendants have many responsibilities that fall under the umbrella of a "personal care attendant". There is a 2-hour minimum on our personal care services. These are some of their responsibilities:
Transferring - from bed to chair, or bathroom/commode.
Input/Output - keeping track of logs for medicinal purposes
Bathing - bed bath and shower bath
Medication - reminding clients to self administer medications (sorry, we cannot administer medications)
Mouth Care - we help assist with proper mouth washing
Exercise - help assist with exercises if needed
Mind - help to stimulate mind with current events, what day/month it is, what season we are in. Make the client aware of their surroundings, name and age
Bed Changing - If client is bedridden, we will use proper bed making techniques while client is in bed.
Remember, we are always aware of confidentiality and respect. We make both client and family aware of any changes. We wear gloves at all times. Plus we always wear our uniforms which are always clean and neat!
Benefits of Respite Care
Caring for a loved one who is unable to care for themselves can be physically, mentally, and emotionally draining on the caregiver. While you want to make sure your loved one is getting everything they need, as a caregiver you also have to be mindful of your own health. Respite care allows caregivers to take a break and recharge, while leaving their loved one in the hands of a capable professional. At Community Helping Hands, our caregivers are highly trained, loving, and respectful professionals who truly enjoy helping other. We love what we do, and would be happy to discuss how we can best service you and your loved ones.
If you or someone you love is in need of regaining their pride and independence, call us today at (203) 790-5577. Let us begin to make a difference.
