What Can Our Aides Do for You?
If you or your loved one is dealing with a disease such as diabetes, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s or dementia, COPD, heart disease, cancer or another chronic condition, or perhaps recuperating from an accident or surgery, or experiencing the difficulties that come with aging, an experienced and compassionate home health aide or Certified Nursing Assistant can help your loved one retain their accustomed lifestyle while remaining safely in their familiar home surroundings. More specifically, the aides can assist with many daily living activities such as:
- Feeding if needed
- Meal Preparation and Cleanup
- Light Housekeeping
- Medication Reminders
And perhaps most importantly, the aide can provide companionship. Regular human interaction can be the difference between a senior’s rapid mental decline and a cheerful, optimistic outlook on life.
How are Aides Selected?
All aides that are referred by Boca Home Care Services for Boynton Beach are experienced, trained and licensed, and their goal is to help keep their clients happy and safe in their friendly home environment. Boca Home Care Services has vast experience in matching the correct caregiver to the specific client. In addition to home care and nursing aides, they can refer occupational therapists, physical therapists, and speech therapists, should the need exist.
All caregivers go through an extensive screening process before being assigned to clients. This screening consists of verification of auto and liability insurance, primary skill certifications, Florida state certifications, CPR certification, physical exams, and an FBI criminal background check – so you can rest assured that your parent or other loved one is safe in their hands.
Home care is frequently offered as an alternative to a nursing facility or assisted living, with the caregiver providing assistance to the senior in their own home, or occasionally in a rehab facility or hospital. A home care aide helps with non-medical tasks, while a nursing aide or CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) has similar duties with the addition of a basic level of medical oversight, including things like taking vital signs and collecting specimens for testing.
