Mobility Assistance
Remaining active is one of the best ways to maintain the quality of life. We are there to provide safety and reliability so that our clients can continue to remain active as active as possible by assisting our clients in getting from place to place safe and secure.

Transferring and Positioning
One of our top priorities is helping our clients move around their homes. This may include getting in and out of bed, chairs, and wheelchairs. Proper transferring and positioning can contribute to reducing bedsore risks. This also helps reduce muscle atrophy, while encouraging proper breathing and digestion. It can also lower the risk of falls and injuries, as well as keep our clients as comfortable as possible.

Toileting and Incontinence Care

All Hours Home Health in-home care professionals are a trained and caring team who understands the often private and sensitive nature of toileting and incontinence care.
This is often times one of the red flag signs families begin to notice about their loved ones that are in need of assistance when things have gone to long unchecked. What on the surface may start with unpleasant odors, and general hygiene deficiencies often progress to include skin breakdown and may even include skin infections. Our caregivers offer compassionate, dignified help with these personal aspects of daily living and help keep our clients living independently.

Nutrition / Meal Preparation

Kitchens are where friends and families come together. Not only can our caregivers also help clients eat nutritious menus to promote disease prevention, healing, and healthy living.
But also daily tasks, like meal preparation, can be a lot of work for seniors. Our caregivers step in and help in the kitchen when needed. 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. 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.

Conversation and Companionship
Loneliness is a disease that greatly increases the speed of declining health in seniors. Studies prove that seniors who stay social and engaged have a better quality of life. They also have a lower tendency to develop depression and general cognitive decline. Our caregivers provide friendly company, conversation, and mealtime companionship — a fantastic way to keep your loved ones engaged and upbeat.

Our caregivers can take care of all laundry needs, either in the home or at a nearby laundromat. These services may include washing, drying, ironing, and putting clean laundry away.

Light Housekeeping
Our caregivers are available to provide light housekeeping. Our services include vacuuming, dusting, sweeping, mopping, cleaning bathrooms (sinks, tubs, showers, and toilets), cleaning kitchens (sinks, appliances, counters, and taking out the trash), straightening all rooms, organizing closets and drawers, and cleaning any interior windows reachable without a ladder.

Being independent with transportation is one of the hardest things for any person to give up. For any adult unable to drive, our caregivers provide transportation incidental to other services, such as medical appointments, barbershops, beauty salons, and shopping. Just about anywhere your senior wants to go, our caregivers can help them get there.

Medication Reminders
One of the leading causes of ER visits and hospital admissions is medication mismanagement.
Although our caregivers do not dispense medication, they are still able to assist with medications. This includes providing reminders of when to take their next dose, as well as opening containers and reading labels. These helpful reminders safeguard that your loved ones are taking their medications as prescribed.

Our caregivers work closely with seniors to provide in-home care. This allows them to remain in their homes for as long as possible. It also ensures they are well taken care of, from grooming to household chores.

A FREE home safety check is also a part of this initial assessment. 

To help you determine what level of assistance makes the most sense for you or your family member, we offer a free, in-home assessment by a registered nurse. These assessments evaluate an individual’s physical, social and cognitive well-being.

Our nurses and physical therapists have years of experience approaching the many sensitivities associated with beginning home care or changing services for older adults at home.
