Our Services

Companionship and In-Home Care Services

Medication Reminders

We do not set up medications for our clients but we can ensure that they take them as prescribed by their physicians. Usually family members set up the medications for their loved ones then we take over to do the rest. Ongoing monitoring of clients in their own homes is important because it can prevent medical crisis and unnecessary hospitalization.

Laundry

We do the client’s laundry in their own home, exactly as they would like it done. We’ll wash, iron if needed, and put it away. If no washer or dryer is available, the TLC Caregiver will take laundry to the laundromat and will also perform other laundry related tasks such as changing linens and dropping off or picking up dry cleaning. If the client is able to assist with laundry we’ll have them do as much as possible to keep them functioning at their optimal level, however assisting them allows clients to conserve energy for other desired activities.

Grocery Shopping/Errands

We assist our clients with grocery shopping to the store of their choice. Some of our clients prefer to go grocery shopping while others may choose to have their TLC Caregiver do the shopping for them. We do what the client prefers. TLC Caregivers will also pick up prescriptions, or do other errands.

Light Housekeeping

TLC Caregivers perform light housekeeping duties such as dusting, sweeping the floors, cleaning the bathrooms, organizing closets, cleaning the kitchen and vacuuming.

Companionship

Our Caregivers are always available to provide companionship and conversation to clients. This prevents isolation and loneliness, stimulates and provides comfort and security, ultimately enhancing their quality of life. We also assist with entertaining, playing games, cards, etc.

Confidential Personal Care Services

Toileting and Incontinence Care

TLC Caregivers provide toileting and incontinence care while helping clients to maintain their dignity and self-esteem as they receive care. Caregivers are compassionate and trained to be especially sensitive in meeting the client’s needs.

Bathing, Grooming and Hygiene

TLC Caregivers provide assistance with showers, bathing, grooming and dressing. We strive to not only have our clients look good but also feel good about themselves. TLC Caregivers establish rapport with the clients helping them to feel more at ease during the bathing process.

Feeding and Special Diet

TLC Caregivers prepare and make certain our clients follow their prescribed diets to control or prevent medical conditions, which enables them to stay at their optimal level of functioning. We also monitor intake and output to ensure proper nutrition.

Mobility Assistance

TLC Caregivers assist with mobility as needed to keep clients safe in their own homes. If the client is able to get out into the community with assistance for activities this is also part of the services TLC Homecare offers.

Positioning and Transferring

We are trained in proper transferring and positioning from bed to chair or wheel chairs. Proper positioning eliminates pressure areas on the skin and is important in preventing stiff muscles while encouraging proper breathing, preserving their optimal level of functioning.

Specialized and Respite Care Services

24-Hour Care

TLC Caregivers can provide 24-hour care. Shifts are scheduled to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our clients. 24-hour care is usually scheduled for individuals who have dementia related conditions. However, sometimes clients are discharged from the hospital and need 24-hour care for a short period of time while recovering from surgery or an illness. Offering 24-hour care gives family members time off and peace of mind.

Respite Care

We are available to provide respite care to family members so they can have a little time to relax. Respite care allows them to recharge their batteries, physically, and emotionally. Some family members schedule time off on a regular basis while some contact us when they need time to rejuvenate.

End of Life Care

TLC Caregivers provide end of life care to clients who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness. We work together with a local hospice agency to provide care that meets the family’s needs. TLC Caregivers can help the family out around the home, provide emotional support or just be at the client’s side. We do whatever the family requests to help support them through this most difficult time.
