Providing Personal Care
Having to provide such personal care such as bathing and incontinence maintenance is a stressful and emotional task. It is difficult to see our aging parent or loved one, once so independent and capable, now need assistance with day-to-day life activities (also known as activities of daily living – ADL’s such as getting in and out of bed and chairs, getting dressed, bathing and showering, toileting assistance, eating and feeding, etc). It is no surprise that it is a great source of stress and anxiety for families to provide this type of care. There is a direct correlation between the number of hours of care provided and the number of ADLs performed, with an increased ‘burden of care.’
Luckily, our Companion Specialist II and Companion Specialist III are trained and experienced to provide just this type of care and service, which are the most stressful aspects of providing care to family caregivers. Furthermore, our Companions go the extra step and do so with compassion and understanding of the human condition and aging process.
Allowing us to provide you with a Casa Companion provides you with the freedom and time to really spend quality time with your loved one. Don’t rob yourself of precious time with your loved one by worrying about the house chores or providing care. In life, your time and your health are priceless. Let us provide you with our services that can save both. It’s an invaluable gift, especially when providing care during the end of life.
