Caregiver helping an elderly client

One Care Home Care offers a continuum of  services that vary according to the level of care and the amount of time you need a Caregiver on a weekly basis. Our care ranges from Companion Care to Personal Care. So, as the situation changes over time, we can revise the Plan of Care to evolve along with it.

Companion Care

Companions provide valuable services prior to the need for more hands-on home care. Companion Care is a good first step for seniors beginning to experience some difficulties, those that are isolated and need companionship, or for families looking to gradually provide assistance for their loves ones in the early stages of decline.

 Companions provide help with the following Activities of Daily Living:
  • Social Engagement and Companionship
  • Light Housekeeping and Home Organization
  • Meal Preparation
  • Transportation: Driving to Personal and Medical Appointments, Errands, etc.
  • Medication Reminders
Personal Care

Caregivers we refer are Certified and provide hands-on, non-medical care to those experiencing physical and/or cognitive impairments, which make it difficult for them to remain independent. This level of care is often more than an informal Caregiver can provide.  CNAs provide help with all the Companion Care activities previously discussed plus the following Activities of Daily Living:

  • Assistance with eating
  • Dressing and grooming
  • Bathing and personal hygiene
  • Toileting and continence care
  • Assist with walking and transfers
Home Making

Some of the our Home Making services indclude:

 

  • Light housekeeping
  • Preparation of nutritious meals
  • Diet monitoring / assist with feeding
  • Dish washing/kitchen cleaning
  • Vacuuming
  • Changing the patient’s linens
  • Maintaining a clean and safe bedside and bath area
  • Laundry
Respite Care

Respite care service from One Care Home Care allows you to take some time off from your responsibilities as a primary caregiver so you can focus on yourself for a while. While you’re away, we’re there to make sure that your loved one is well taken care of. Our professional and compassionate caregivers we refer can provide respite care at home or any setting for a couple of hours, an entire day, overnight, or even longer-term if needed. We’re here whether you need us once, or on a recurring schedule.

Hospice Support Care

Hospice Care Support

The time may come in a senior’s life when the focus turns from cure to comfort. If you’re in that situation, we can help.  At a time like this, you should be allowed to take off the ‘caregiver’ badge and simply be the loving family member.

Hospice Care Support Activities & Benefits

Many people believe home hospice services provide round-the-clock care. Unfortunately this is not the case. Often, hospice services offer an hour or two of care per day, plus a weekly check-in by a nurse. And some hospice programs won’t accept patients who don’t have a full-time caregiver at home.

One Care Home Care can provide companionship, personal care services and respite care. Here are a few of the services we offer:

  • Personal care
  • Emotional support
  • Companionship
  • Housekeeping
  • Reading aloud
  • Grooming and dressing
  • Linen changes
  • Respite for family caregivers

Transportation

We also specialize in referring Caregivers that drive.  This is a big differentiator for One Care Home Care, and provides a great deal of independence and freedom for seniors, who no longer drive and/or have given up their car.

  • Driving or accompanying to appointments
  • Beauty salon and barber shop
  • Personal shopper
  • Accompany to lunch or dinner
  • Escort for shopping or religious services
  • Attend plays, concerts, club meetings, etc.
Pet Therapy

Animal-assisted therapy (AAT) is a type of therapy that involves animals as a form of treatment. The goal of AAT is to improve a patient’s social, emotional, or cognitive functioning.

Levels of Care

HOURLY

Hourly shifts start at 4 hours per day with a minimum of 3 days per week. This level of care works well in several situations.  Two situations we most often see are:

Respite Care – Several hours of care can provide respite for the primary Caregiver (i.e. spouse, family member, etc.) so they can run errands, take some much needed personal time, or just relax and recharge their battery.  Providing care to a loved one can be very stressful.  Even a few hours of help from a qualified professional can provide the peace of mind.

First Time – This option is a helpful first step for someone who has not had a Caregiver before, and is just beginning to experience difficulty.   In a case like this, the Caregiver can act almost as a Personal Assistant by helping with the tedious Activities of Daily Living, such as light housekeeping, meal preparation, errands, etc.

12-Hour Shift

There is a significant cost break when moving from Hourly Care to a 12-Hour Shift. Once a client’s needs surpass 8-9 hours per day, this option can make financial sense. A 12-Hour Shift can be used for both day or night coverage.

Day – A 12-Hour Day Shift normally starts between 7-9 AM, which generally provides coverage from when the patient wakes up until they go to bed.  This allows for coverage during the busiest time of the day.  If there is family member, who works while serving as the primary Caregiver, this option allows them to go to work without rushing the morning routine or rushing home in the evening to prepare a meal.  Meanwhile, the patient is comfortably taken care of throughout the day.

Night – A 12-hour night shift typically starts between 7-9 PM, and covers the evening routine, the time the patient or primary Caregiver sleeps, and the morning routine.  This is particularly useful for patients suffering from restlessness and insomnia at night due to adverse affects of dementia.  It is also helpful for patients requiring ambulation assistance to get to, and from, the bathroom frequently at night.  The additional assistance allows the spouse to get much needed uninterrupted sleep knowing their loved one is being taken care of properly.
