Senior Living Minnesota
The personal care services offered by CareAparent help seniors to remain safe, independent, and engaged in their community. Personal care services consist of those tasks related to daily living–the things most of us do every day without assistance. We work with each client to help assess an individual’s ability to complete these tasks on their own and determine the level of services they require. Our personal care services include:
In-Home Care Services
Social support is especially important as it has an impact on physical health and well-being. Simple conversation with others can help to reduce stress and decrease incidents of depression or anxiety. CareAparent can step in to keep your loved one engaged by providing friendly companionship and interesting conversation to provide the positive social support they need.
The decision to stop driving is a tough one for most seniors. It raises questions about how they’re going to get to medical appointments or other care services. When driving is no longer an option for your loved one, CareAparent is there. We can provide transportation for your loved one to such things as medical appointments, shopping, the beauty salon or barbershop, or even meeting a friend for lunch. Providing incidental transportation is an essential part of the caregiving that we provide our clients.
Many need help with daily tasks, particularly in leaving home to run errands or shopping. CareAparent caregivers can assist your loved one in doing such things as grocery shopping, picking up prescriptions, going to the post office, or running other errands. Your loved one is welcome to go along for the ride, or they can choose to stay at home while we take care of the errands.
Meal Nutrition and Preparation
There are many reasons assistance may be required for preparing meals, including forgetfulness and loneliness. Preparing food while socializing with another person can make mealtime a more enjoyable experience. If your loved one is experiencing difficulties in preparing meals, CareAparent caregivers can prepare delicious and nutritious meals. Your loved one is welcome and encouraged to assist with meal preparation as their abilities allow.
A neat and tidy home is important to the emotional and physical well-being of your loved one. CareAparent caregivers can help with light housekeeping services. We assist with such household chores as vacuuming, sweeping and mopping floors, dusting, cleaning the kitchen and bathroom, tidying all rooms, organizing closets and drawers, and yes, we’ll even do interior windows (those that we can reach without a ladder).
Laundry chores can be problematic for those with physical limitations. CareAparent can manage all laundry tasks, such as washing and drying laundry, ironing and putting laundry away. Washing and drying of laundry can be completed in either the client’s home or at a laundromat.
Bathing and Grooming
When we look good, we feel better. It’s a fact. CareAparent can assist your loved one with bathing, dressing, shampooing, combing, and styling their hair, shaving, and other grooming essentials so your loved one can look and feel their best.
It is extremely important for medications to be taken on time. It is common to have trouble remembering to take medications, especially if the medication is a new one or the medication schedule changes. CareAparent caregivers can assist in ensuring your loved one takes their medication at scheduled times.
This is a great alternative for the physical and emotional care of the Family Caregiver. We provide temporary or regularly scheduled care which then allows the primary caregiver a break to manage their own personal affairs or matters without interrupting care for their loved one.
