In many cases, family members realize professional assistance becomes necessary for safe, quality care of a loved one. Sometimes the challenges that the older person is dealing with become more complex and require resources that are beyond family members’ abilities. In some cases, family members are not nearby to help personally care for an elderly relative, or perhaps the senior wants to continue to reside in their own home, yet needs certain assistance which a family member cannot provide.
Those recovering from a hospitalisation or with conditions such as dementia or Alzheimer’s disease can present special needs. These types of scenarios can be resolved by consulting with a care manager who will help ascertain what steps are needed for the older person to receive assisted care, as well as the frequency and type of care necessary.

There is continual communication with family members regarding updates, and on-going re-evaluation of the levels of care being applied to the condition of the client.
Services that a CAREGiver can provide include: dressing, showering, incontinence care, meal planning and preparation, companionship and conversation, tracking medication, shopping and errands, laundry and household management, light housekeeping, observation and monitoring, transportation to appointments, planning visits and outings, and safety awareness.
