Personal Care Services
At Five Star Companion Care, we believe that looking and feeling your best is the key to a healthy lifestyle – especially for seniors. That’s why our caregivers are trained to help clients with their personalized hygiene and grooming routines; such as shampooing, shaving (with an electric shaver), hair combing/styling and more! We understand how difficult bath-time can be due to physical or cognitive limitations which may lead one to feel anxious about falling while bathing. Our goal is simply put: providing companionship through compassionate care so your loved ones can feel comfortable at all times.
Our caregivers ensure our clients remain as active and independent as possible, which, in turn, leads to a higher quality of life. With the help of our compassionate companionship experts, journeys are made stress-free with comfort and safety at the forefront.
Transferring & Positioning
Keeping our clients safe and comfortable is our top priority. To achieve that, we focus on proper transferring and positioning to help reduce risks like bedsores, muscle atrophy, falls or injuries. We also want to encourage healthy breathing patterns for digestion – all of which go towards keeping your loved one as happy & calm in their own space!
Toileting & Incontinence Care
At Five Star Companion Care, we understand how sensitive toileting and incontinence care can be for clients. Sadly, without the proper help they need in this area of personal hygiene, the result can be a multitude of health issues such as skin infections or unsavory odors that harm their quality of life. That’s why we focus on dignity and respect while offering compassionate supplementary assistance with essential daily activities to ensure all needs are met safely!
Maintaining a healthy, nutritious diet can impact well-being and vitality across the board. In fact, many of our clients have prescribed meal plans they must stick to for health reasons. Whether you’re looking for help adhering to a special diet or just want to improve nutrition, our caregivers can help. They also provide companionship, turning meals into social time by engaging while they eat. The positive environment helps them feel more relaxed. Supervision also makes certain your loved ones get proper nourishment.
Our caregivers help certain clients stay on prescribed diets to prevent or control a wide variety of medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis. We also help clients eat nutritious menus to promote disease prevention, healing, and healthy living.
In-Home Companionship & Care Services
Staying socially engaged as you age is not just enjoyable – it’s also good for your mental and physical health. Studies have shown that seniors who stay social are at lower risk of developing depression or cognitive decline. With our caregivers providing friendly conversation, meals, and companionship – the quality of life for your loved one can be improved in a convenient way!
Daily tasks, like meal preparation, can be a lot of work for the disabled and seniors. Our caregivers step in and help in the kitchen when needed. They cook hot and wholesome meals to meet nutritional and dietary needs. Your loved ones are always welcome to work alongside their caregiver during meal prep. This time spent working together is an excellent opportunity for social interaction and conversation.
Our caregivers have you covered when it comes to laundry: from washing and drying your clothes, to ironing them crisp, all the way to neatly putting everything away! Whether in-home or at a nearby laundromat – we help keep things tidy so that you can relax.
Our caregivers are here to assist with all of your household needs. Our services range from the everyday basics, such as vacuuming and dusting, to deep cleaning tasks like scrubbing bathrooms and tackling messy closets & drawers! We also help you keep up on light housekeeping duties such as sweeping, mopping kitchen counters & appliances as well as taking out the trash.
Grocery Shopping & Errands
Getting around can be difficult for the disabled, injured and or seniors, especially if they are unable to drive. Our caregivers take care of this problem by running around town for you. This can include grocery shopping as well as other errands, such as stopping at the pharmacy or post office. Your loved ones are welcome to stay home or come along for the ride as a way to stay active.
Although our caregivers cannot administer medications, they can assist in ensuring that clients take their medication as prescribed. Our caregivers can help with opening medication containers, reading labels, and reminding the client when it is time for the next dose.
As we age, feeling and looking your best can be a challenge when it comes to personal grooming. Fortunately for seniors, our caregivers are here to help! We make sure each client is given the care they need by providing assistance with shampooing, shaving, hair combing and styling – all of which helps ensure that anyone in their golden years has every opportunity to look sharp and feel confident.
