• Thoroughly screened, evaluated and trained
This commitment to hiring quality caregivers is one more way we relieve your worry and stress.
Once you have determined that your elderly loved one needs assistance, it is important to honor their wish to remain happy and independent in their own home. But for your own peace of mind, you need to know that they are completely safe and cared for in all situations.
Even when you are close to a senior family member, it can be difficult to know their specific needs. And in some cases, they might be apprehensive to mention their more personal needs.
The complimentary, initial in-home care interview with a Senior Helpers consultant can help you survey your options. Together you can discuss your loved one's needs and our services to determine what is best for your entire family. We will cover:
• Your family's specific goals
• Your loved one's daily plan design and schedule
• Pricing and payment methods
• Implementation process
• Ongoing communication and follow-up plan
Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care
At Senior Helpers our professional, trained caregivers take a positive approach to Alzheimer’s and dementia care – our unique senior Gems program. This method focusses on what those with dementia can do, instead of what they cannot do. We also work closely with dementia and registered occupational therapist, Teepa Snow (MS, OTR/L, FAOTA). Her Gems classification system (based on Cognitive Disability Theory) allows us to understand which stage of dementia the person is experiencing so we can put together the best plan and select the best caregiver for the individual. With over 30 years of professional experience and having provided care for several family members with dementia, Teepa brings a strong clinical base and a unique perspective on how our brains control our bodies and behaviors. Caregivers who are trained using her approach and techniques can help change resistance and refusals into participation and successful interactions.
If your loved one is suffering from Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia, it can also take a tremendous toll on your own physical and emotional well-being. With the right care and support of our extensively trained caregivers, the Senior Gems program will make your loved one’s life and yours much easier and more enjoyable. You don’t have to do it alone!
