  • Stroke Recovery Assistance

    We can provide needed assistance with activities of daily living, or respite care for a primary family caregiver. We can also help identify and eliminate hazards in the home that might cause or contribute to falls, which can prove devastating to the recovery process.

    The goals of rehabilitation are to help stroke survivors regain as much of their independence as possible. While many survivors begin their rehabilitation therapy in a hospital or rehabilitation facility, the vast majority of their recovery is performed over time at home.

    Rehabilitation nurses and therapists help patients who are able to perform progressively more complex and demanding tasks, such as bathing, dressing, and toileting, and they encourage patients to begin using their stroke impaired limbs while engaging those tasks. This is where our trained caregivers can be a vital link at continuing and enhancing the rehabilitation process.

    Let us help you and your loved one achieve your long term home therapy goals. We can provide needed assistance with activities of daily living, or respite care for a primary family caregiver. We can also help identify and eliminate hazards in the home that might cause or contribute to falls, which can prove devastating to the recovery process.

  • Senior day care facility aids

    We provide certified nurse assistants and home health aides to senior day care facilities on an outsource staffing basis.

    Some of these day care facilities are certified by the state to provide a variety of services to Medicaid recipients under the LIFE or PACE programs.  We are one of the few agencies that are able to do this sort of contract staffing since we have a lot of caregivers and a good electronic management system.
