SCHAS Caregivers provide clients companionship and conversation. The physical and mental health, happiness and quality of life of seniors can be enhanced by having someone to share their time with.
- GROCERY SHOPPING OR ERRANDS
SCHAS Caregivers shop for groceries at stores of their clients’ preference and run errands, such as going to the post office or picking up medications. Clients may choose to stay home or go with the Caregiver.
Laundry chores can be a burden to everyone, but can be even more of a problem for the elderly or those that have physical limitations. The ability to remove wet laundry from a machine can be extremely difficult for an elderly or disabled individual. Our caregiver can do laundry in either the client’s home or the Laundromat. We make sure laundry is done according to the client’s preferences.
- LIGHT HOUSEKEEPING
- MEDICATION REMINDERS
While SCHAS Caregivers cannot administer medications; they can remind clients to take their medication as prescribed. Taking medication inappropriately is one of the leading causes for hospital admission & readmission among the elderly.
- PERSONAL CARE
SCHAS Caregivers assist with personal grooming tasks, such as bathing, washing, drying and combing hair, allowing the client to feel good about their personal appearance.
- TOILETING AND INCONTINENCE CARE
SCHAS Caregivers strive to help clients maintain dignity and self-esteem as they receive help with sensitive issues such as incontinence. Caregivers handle the need for toiling assistance with compassion and sensitivity, striving to relieve embarrassment associated with incontinence and need for assistance.
SCHAS Caregivers provide transportation such as taking clients to medical appointments, barbershops, beauty salons, shopping, or wherever else a client wants to go.
- 24-HOUR CARE
Through our 24-hour senior care service, caregiving responsibilities can be coordinated in shifts 24 hours a day. This around the clock care gives family members peace of mind knowing there are no gaps in assistance for their loved one. Services can be tailored to meet each client’s needs. This type of care is ideal for clients who are at risk when unattended, such as persons with Alzheimer’s or other dementia-related conditions.
- RESPITE CARE FOR FAMILY
Caregiving can be a demanding job in light of life’s other responsibilities and most people are not able to do it alone. Family caregivers can benefit from a little time off now and then. Respite service can be scheduled as needed to provide family caregivers needed personal time.
Services may last from a few hours to 24-hour care. This provides time for family caregivers to get some much-needed rest. They have time needed to run errands, make appointments, or just enjoy an evening or afternoon out, or even take a vacation. The loved one is able to stay in their own home where they are comfortable, or in Renaissance Terrace Assisted Living, which is owned and operated by SCHAS.
This popular service can be invaluable for caregivers. SCHAS takes the worry out of choosing someone to stay with your loved one by carefully screening and training all of our Caregivers thoroughly before placing them in your home. You can rest assured that your loved one is being well cared for while you take care of yourself!
Medical insurance in the U.S. generally does not cover overnight respite,
long-term care policies and veterans’ programs may subsidize care.
