Personal Care Support
Some seniors have trouble getting around to run every day errands, and Sovereign Royal Care’s highly trained caregivers are ready to complete everyday tasks so the senior may continue to be independent and live at home rather than move into a care facility. We can do all the grocery shopping, pick up prescriptions or dry-cleaning, and take the pet to the groomer or vet. The senior may either choose to go with the caregiver or stay at home and relax. Our caregivers can assist you or your loved one with helping with any of the following personal support tasks:
• Mobility Assistance
Getting out in the fresh air or experiencing a change in scenery can alleviate boredom for a home-bound senior and helps break their every-day routine. Even leaving the house for just a little while is proven to help seniors remain active and healthy. For younger people, a fall may be minor, but a fall for the elderly or disabled can be significant, or even fatal. Sovereign Royal Care’s caregivers can offer a steady arm and mobility assistance, to make sure seniors remain safe.
• Positioning & Transferring
One of the most important tasks our caregivers do is proper positioning and transferring of our clients. Moving freely about is a priority and an essential activity of daily living. All of our caregivers are trained to move and position our clients correctly to make certain they are comfortable and safe.
• Hygiene & Grooming
We encourage our senior clients to maintain personal hygiene and grooming. We believe it is essential for our clients to feel healthy in their golden years, and proper hygiene also helps to maintain their dignity and self-esteem. We will help with bathing and showering to make sure there is a safe environment, as floors can be wet and slippery. We will assist with styling hair and shaving (electric razors), brushing teeth and more.
• Grocery Shopping & Meal Preparation
We help our seniors maintain a diet that is balanced to keep their health at optimal levels. We implement healthy and nutritious meals, which can reduce ailments and diseases. We can assist our clients with special diets for specific health concerns. Some elderly clients also need help shopping so they can maintain a diet or they just prefer the company while helping to cook a meal. Most of our seniors enjoy being our caregiver’s helper in the kitchen, and caregivers can share meals together which creates an enjoyable bonding experience.
• Companionship & Communication
It is normal for seniors to want and need companionship because it makes them feel good and reduces their stress levels. Being able to communicate with their caregiver, when family or friends may not be available, can help seniors feel connected and lower the risk of depression. Sovereign Royal Care’s caregivers are not allowed to use their cell phones for personal use while working in the home, unless they are on a scheduled break.
• Medication Reminders
Our caregivers can remind our client to take their medication as prescribed, although they may not administer them. They may open medication containers, read labels, and remind the client when it is time for the next dose.
Some of our seniors may not be able to drive any longer. But our caregivers can handle this and take them to medical appointments, barbershops, beauty salons, shopping and more. Our caregivers are more than happy to assist and encourage our clients to get out into the public.
Sovereign Royal Care’s caregivers will help with washing, drying, ironing, and putting clean laundry away. All of your laundry needs are taken care of, whether it’s in the clients’ home or at a laundromat.
• Light Housekeeping
We can help with light housekeeping such as vacuuming, dusting, sweeping, mopping, cleaning bathrooms and kitchens; organizing rooms, closets and drawers; and clean any interior windows that are within reach. If the idea of moving to a nursing home, assisted living facility, or retirement community doesn’t feel or seem attractive, Sovereign Royal Care’s home services will be able to help keep you living in your own home for longer.
