Questions


Our Services

Courageous Home Care supports our clients and families. We work for our clients and families to thrive at home with the assistance of our devoted and trustworthy employees providing an unsurpassed level of care. Our services are customized to meet your needs. You can view our services list and a brief description below.

Light House Cleaning

When your aging or disabled loved one lives in a clean and organized home, they enjoy greater feelings of well-being—and even good health. Those germs that linger on counter tops and other surfaces need to be disinfected and washed away to prevent bacterial and viral infections. Keeping refrigerators and cupboards free of expired or spoiled foods can avert food-borne illnesses. To avoid fire hazards, stoves, toasters, ovens and other appliances must be regularly cleaned to avoid a build-up of grease, oils or crumbs. Because it’s not easy to stay ahead of clutter or clean a home’s nooks and crannies if you’re a senior or disabled, Courageous Home Care’s light housekeeping services can literally be a lifesaver. We make it possible for your aging parent or disabled family member to enjoy the peace of mind that comes with a clean and uncluttered home while leaving all the dirty work to us.

Hygiene Assistance

Personal hygiene cleanses the body and soothes the mind. Our in-home caregivers offer the personal assistance your aged or disabled loved one needs to continue the self-care that makes them feel clean and refreshed.

Meal Preparation

As your parent ages, he or she may lose interest in food. If your mother or father lives alone, mealtimes may be lonely. If your parent has a reduced sense of taste or smell, food may seem less appetizing. Medications, too, can take a toll on appetite. For aging parents with physical or mental impairments, difficulties with grocery shopping and preparing meals may be obstacles to good nutrition. Even when seniors do eat well, they may not fully absorb all their nutrients. Meanwhile, our nutritional needs change as we age. It all adds up to special needs—which can be met through a variety of Courageous Home Care meal services.

Diet Monitoring

Unintentional weight loss affects more than a quarter of people over age 65. It may be a signal that a senior needs home care meals or feeding assistance—all services our caregivers provide. In fact, research shows that feeding assistance, either during or between meals, can improve a senior’s daily fluid and food consumption needed to maintain a healthy weight.

Errands/Shopping

Those new dings and dents on your aging parent’s car may leave you wondering if your parent should be driving any more. The damage may be a sign that driving safely is becoming an issue due to vision problems, delayed reaction time or confusion. Other warning signs include traffic violations, parking tickets, accidents, getting lost, losing keys or running out of gas. Feeling suspicious, you may have gauged your aging parent’s competency behind the wheel by spending time in the passenger seat while your parent drove. Before your parent’s driving gets seriously erratic, it’s important to have a serious talk about hanging up the keys. Before you broach the subject, it’s best to have good alternatives in mind, such as the senior care errand assistance offered by Courageous Home Care.

Your aging parents will likely feel reluctant to give up the independence that driving offers, but the good news is Courageous Home Care’s elderly transportation assistance means they can still run errands, go to doctor’s appointments and visit with friends and family—all without getting behind the wheel. If your parent would prefer reading a book or gardening versus running errands, that’s possible, too, through Courageous Home Care’s senior care errand assistance.

Companionship

Did you know that recent research reveals there’s a surprisingly strong link between social needs and health—even longevity? In one survey, four out of five physicians (85 percent) report that unmet social needs directly lead to worse health. The doctors say a patient’s social needs are just as important to address as their medical conditions. If these physicians could write prescriptions to cover their patients’ social needs, these scripts would account for 1 out of every 7 prescriptions they’d write. Of course, your aging parent’s physician cannot write a prescription to cure their isolation and loneliness. Overcoming these emotional challenges can be difficult for seniors, especially if they live alone. As seniors age, they often lose touch with others due to special circumstances that limit their ability to travel, drive a car or otherwise stay connected to family and friends. But there is an answer. For many seniors, home care fills the social gap created by growing older. Senior home companions monitor and protect a senior’s safety, health and wellness, handle everyday household tasks—and provide much-needed social interaction. Elderly companions meet an aging parent’s social needs by providing supportive conversation, helping to plan social outings and providing a little friendly encouragement to do light exercise and stay mentally active.

Tube Feeding

The transition to home tube feeding requires some adjustments and there are ways to make these adjustments easier. If you experience any worry as a patient or a caregiver, rest assured there are many things to help you feel better and more at ease. For example, talking to friends and family about your loved one’s tube feeding may make you more comfortable with the transition. Or, consider scheduling their feedings during family meal time. If you choose to administer feedings at other times, be sure to continue to engage in family and other social activities. The adjustment may require time and patience, but soon it will become a routine.

Reminders to take medicine

Medication management plays an important role in the daily lives of seniors with diseases, conditions, and ailments. Seniors with Alzheimer’s and Dementia are often prescribed medication to prevent memory impairment, promote sleep, reduce anxiety, and improve one’s mood. The long list of medications they are given, along with the new medications that are routinely prescribed, can be difficult to manage. Our Caregivers are careful to ensure that you or your loved one is taking the correct medication at the appropriate time of day. Some of the medication management services we offer include:

  • Ensure medication is taken in the proper dosage at the proper time
  • Setting up the pill box to help with managing medication
  • Logging medication intake daily

  • By law, our Caregivers are unable to administer medications through injections, IV therapy, suppositories, and force feeding. Only a licensed nurse may perform these duties. Please reach out to a 24Hr HomeCare representative for more information.

Help with bill paying

If you notice a stack of late notices or unpaid bills in your parent’s home, there may not be a problem with your parent’s finances. They may have the money to pay the bills—but forget to write checks or misplace monthly statements. As part of our light housekeeping services, our caregiver companions can help your parent organize their bills and letters as well as stay connected with family and friends via email, photo sharing and social networking.

Assessments

Once you've determined that your loved one may require home care, you'll want to meet with professional care providers. A quality care provider will perform a complete home care assessment before starting care to determine your loved one's care needs. This makes it possible to precisely plan your loved one's care according to his or her specific care concerns. During a home care assessment, care specialists will meet with you and your loved one to discuss your loved one's greatest age-related or disability-related challenges, your loved one's lifestyle and daily schedule, and your overall goals for care.

Getting to know your loved one is also a key part of the caregiver selection process. For care agencies like Courageous Home Care, a full in-home care assessment means that care directors are able to match your loved one with a caregiver whose personality, skills, and experience are best suited to your loved one's needs.
