Personal Care Services
Bathing, Grooming, and Hygiene
High Roads Care®can help seniors feel positive about their appearance through bathing, grooming, and hygiene assistance. Bathing not only cleanses the skin but goes deeper to refresh the spirit, provide relaxation, and stimulate circulation. Our High Roads Care’s Staff are trained to lessen any embarrassment or discomfort.
Mobility assistance helps seniors maintain as active a lifestyle as possible when considering their ages, abilities, and overall health. There are many physical health benefits of keeping the senior mobile, including:
Lowering blood pressure
Improving digestion and sleep
Increasing energy and stamina
Strengthening the heart
High Roads Care can also accompany the client on a short walk, and provide encouragement and reminders to complete prescribed exercises.
Transferring and Positioning
High Roads Care in-home care providers are trained to move and place clients in correct posture positions to promote health and safety. Proper transferring and positioning from or into beds and chairs eliminates pressure areas on the skin, reduces weakening and stiffening of muscles, and encourages proper breathing, digestion, and elimination.
Toileting and Incontinence Care
Our High Roads Care work to maintain the dignity and self-esteem of seniors and other adult clients as they assist with daily living activities. Through this caring approach, High Roads Care help lessen the embarrassment clients may feel associated with incontinence and need for toileting assistance.
Feeding and Special Diet
Some clients need help feeding themselves, and the loss of independent eating can be hard to accept. Our High Roads Care understands this and is particularly sensitive, making the extra effort that can turn mealtime into a more enjoyable social time. In addition, High Roads Care will help ensure that their clients stay on prescribed diets to prevent or control a wide variety of medical conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, or diabetes.
Conversation and Companionship
Our High Roads Care provides clients companionship, for instance through conversation or when they sit down to share a meal. Social contact such as this is proven to enhance seniors’ health, happiness, and quality of life.
Many seniors do not have the ability to shop for groceries and fix a well-balanced meal. High Roads Care can prepare hot, delicious, nutritious meals based on their clients’ preferences to help them get the proper nutrition they need. Clients may help with meal preparation as their abilities permit.
Our High Roads Care will tend to the laundry either at their clients’ homes or a laundry facility, and will wash, dry, fold, iron, and put clothing away. We work to ensure that each client’s laundry is done according to his or her preferences.
Our light housekeeping in-home care services cover most domestic tasks. Often seniors are able and want to join their caregivers in housework, which can help them feel useful and needed. These tasks include:
Sweeping and mopping floors
Cleaning bathrooms and kitchens
Please be advised that High Roads Care does not provide outdoor cleaning or maintenance services.
High Roads Care will shop for groceries at the stores their clients prefer and run errands such as picking up prescriptions or going to the post office. Clients may choose to stay home or come along and help with shopping and errands as an excellent way to stay active and engaged. High Roads Care will use any coupons provided.
Our High Roads Care can provide incidental transportation for clients, allowing them the freedom to go shopping and attend other activities or get to medical appointments, the barbershop or beauty salon, and other places the senior chooses. Getting a senior out and about is good for the senior’s mind, body, and spirit.
Depending on the client’s needs, High Roads Care can provide care for just a few hours a week or full-time, in home care. Through our 24-hour senior care service, a team of High Roads Care coordinates caregiving responsibilities in shifts. This offers clients and their families’ full-time peace of mind.
