Home safety assessment

One of the first steps we take is to conduct a comprehensive safety assessment of the entire home. This is done by a registered nurse who has received extensive training in this area.

The assessment includes:

  • Entranceways (steps, railings, lighting, ramps)
  • All flooring (unsafe rugs, electric cords, clutter, lighting)
  • Furniture
  • Access to light switches and storage
  • Bedroom (bed height, access to telephone, night light, unsafe rugs)
  • Bathroom (slippery tub, grab bars, bath chair, unsafe rugs)
  • Stairways
  • Laundry room

Medical escort

Private Home Care trained caregivers offer clients transportation to and from doctor and dentist appointments, and other outpatient procedures.

“Safely Home” program

When a loved one comes home from a hospital stay or outpatient care, our trained caregivers provide transportation and get them comfortably settled at home. If needed, this service can also include cleaning out or restocking the refrigerator, meal preparation and getting prescription medications from the pharmacy.

Respite care

Caring for an elderly family member is often stressful and time-consuming. Our respite care program offers relief to family caregivers, enabling them to take some time for themselves. A few hours off can make a big difference for a person who is caring for a loved one.
