Providing Home Personal Care in Sudbury, The Valley, and Surrounding Areas
We know that home care can require very specific needs to be met, and the condition your loved one is dealing with requires a unique approach to care. We have a team of professionals that have experience dealing with a wide range of conditions and ailments and are able to handle any challenge that might present itself. We go into greater detail for each condition below.
We know that having Alzheimer’s can be frustrating, this is why we take every precaution by scheduling and establishing a daily routine. You may find that tasks may take longer than they used to, so we schedule more time for your loved ones. Our professionals are trained to involve the patient and provide choices for them. We have observed through experience that if we provide simple choices and instructions, this reduces distraction, sadness, confusion, worry, fear, and anxiety. Our caregivers are experts, trained in all 7 stages of Alzheimer’s.
At Guardian Caregiving, our caregivers help and support people with dementia by setting a positive mood for interaction. We understand that getting the person’s attention is very important to relay a message clearly, we keep it simple by breaking down any activities into a series of steps. It is all about listening with our ears, eyes, and our hearts.
We put an emphasis on “care” for someone who needs Palliative Care, which improves the quality of life of our patients and their families. We understand a life-threatening illness can turn their world upside down. This is why we believe in providing relief from pain and other distressing symptoms. We try to affirm life and regard dying as a normal process, neither hasten nor postpone death. We try to integrate all aspects of patient care that is needed and offer a support system to help live as actively as possible.
A cancer diagnosis can be devastating emotionally, physically, and financially. Depending on your loved one’s overall health and response to treatment, our team will develop a care plan with the family and ensure the care plan is always met.
