Our Personal Support Workers (PSWs) are all carefully screened. They can assist with all day-to-day activities, such as:
- dressing, medication reminders, shopping and meal preparation, assistance with eating and drinking
- personal hygiene, including bathing, grooming, and toileting, while maintaining the personal dignity and privacy of the client.
Advanta Health Care Services pay particular attention to each individual’s needs and always make an effort to work as a team to enhance the quality of client’s life or family’s life.
Caring for an aging parent, elderly spouse, domestic partner or close friend can present difficult challenges – especially when a crisis hits and you are suddenly faced with the added responsibilities of elder care.
Your loved one might be in need of personal care assistance, mobility help, assistance with meal preparation or feeding. At times, the elderly simply need someone around to help them from a chair or to button a shirt. Others find themselves in need of someone to talk to, or to go for a walk with. Some seniors need supervision to assure their comfort and safety.
Whether you require round the clock or minimal care, we will work with you to customize our service to meet virtually any range of personal, psycho-social and domestic support needs at a level appropriate to each client.
Social contact is a vital part of a healthy lifestyle, especially for seniors who might not get out as much as they once did. Indeed, when you are getting older, staying mentally and physically engaged is very important for maintaining good health and well-being.
Dependent upon the needs and abilities of the individual, our service providers will engage your loved one in activities such as: reading, games, sharing a hobby, pet care, walking in the neighborhood, doing prescribed exercises, having a nutritious meal. We also provide respite care, escort clients to appointments or leisure outings, assist with grocery shopping and errands.
With all the attention on the person requiring care, all too often, we neglect the needs of the person providing it. A family member or a professional caregiver looking after a loved one will be better at it if they can have a break once in a while or a time during the week they can plan on to “turn off” and attend to their own business and personal needs: get a haircut, go to the bank, meet a friend or simply be alone and not responsible. Advanta Health Care Services staff can provide relief for family caregivers for a few hours a day, or around-the-clock.
While no one likes to talk about it, there comes a time when we might be faced with a life-threatening illness or sadly have to accept a terminal prognosis. When that time arrives, our supportive staff will be by your side to lessen the weight for family caregivers and keep the patient as comfortable as possible.
Our caregivers provide support for those who have just undergone surgery. We can provide care to the patient during hospital stay or while they are recovering at home.
How we can help:
- Accompany clients home and assist in settling in after discharge from the hospital; escort clients to any follow-up clinic appointments
- Assist with personal care and activities of daily living while recovering from surgery
