Ideal Caregivers 4u provides services in your home, in retirement residences, in long-term care or nursing homes, and in hospitals.

Respite / Convalescent / Short or Long-Term Stays Services

Serving as the sole caregiver for a loved one can be a rewarding experience and it can be a stressful, demanding responsibility, especially when it is in addition to raising your own family and career. Family caregivers are not alone and Ideal Caregivers 4u is here to help.

With so many people depending on them, it is crucial that caregivers take the time to care for themselves. No matter how much they love the people they are caring for, caregivers need regular breaks to be their best. We provide professional in-home care for seniors and other adults who require assistance to temporarily relieve caregivers so they can attend to other matters such as the following:

  • Run errands

  • Spend time shopping

  • Meet with a support group

  • Make a dentist or doctor appointment

  • Enjoy much-deserved alone time

 

Respite care services give caregivers the unique opportunity to leave home for a few hours with the peace of mind that comes with knowing their loved ones are in capable hands. Ideal Caregivers 4u can schedule as much or as little time away as they need. Arranging respite care is easy, whether they need a few hours a week to run errands or around-the-clock care so they can make it to an event out of town.

Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia Care

Ideal Caregivers 4u understand the struggles families face when caring for a senior with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, and we are here to help. Our caregivers receive special training to care for seniors with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, and we are dedicated to providing the highest quality care to support families during this difficult time. We understand Alzheimer’s disease, its symptoms, how it affects behavior, and that it progresses at different rates for different seniors. We understand what families are going through and we’re here to help.

Meal Assistance Program

We offer Mealtime Assistance Program (MAP) monitored by our personal caregivers to provide optimal assistance to all your loved ones who forget to eat or need help to eat at mealtime.

 

There are times that your loved one will forget to eat because of memory loss, missing family, friends, conversation, celebrating, caring, religious events and cultural tradition.

 

We see meals as a time to provide nutrition, love and caring, as well as a time to socialize.  

 

We are there to ensure your loved ones eat their Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.

Medication Management

The proper administration of multiple medications throughout the day can be a challenge for most people, especially for the elderly. Our caregivers assist in medication management by tracking medication times and reminding clients to take their medications on schedule.

What Tasks Does Medication Management Include?

Medication management includes the following tasks to help your loved one remain healthy and safe:

  • A complete inventory of medications

  • Maintain and track medication schedule

  • Report any side effects to family members and medical personnel

  • Reminders to take medications on time and in the proper dosage

End of Life Care ~ The Journey to Recovery

We can ease your loved one’s transition from the hospital or rehabilitation facility to home, which can lead to a better, more comfortable recovery.

 

The time immediately after a hospital stay can be critical to the health and recovery of a loved one. Studies show that the lack of proper support and care following surgery or a serious hospitalization can lead to slower recovery or even readmission to the hospital.

 

Family members often take on the task of caring for a loved one after a hospital stay but can find they are untrained or ill prepared to meet the physical and emotional challenges of such care. Ideal Caregivers 4u is here to ease the transition home.

Light House Cleaning , Meal Preparations and Laundry

​When your aging or disabled loved one living in a clean and organized home, they enjoy greater feelings of wellbeing—and even good health. Those germs that linger on countertops and other surfaces need to be disinfected and washed away to prevent bacterial and viral infections. 

Keeping refrigerators and cupboards free of expired or spoiled foods can avert food-borne illnesses. To avoid fire hazards, stoves, toasters, ovens and other appliances must be regularly cleaned to avoid a build-up of grease, oils or crumbs. Because it’s not easy to stay ahead of clutter or clean a home’s nooks and crannies if you’re a senior or disabled, Ideal Caregivers 4u light housekeeping services can literally be a lifesaver. 

We make it possible for your aging parent or disabled family member to enjoy the peace of mind that comes with a clean and uncluttered home while leaving all the dirty work to us.

Light House Cleaning Light housekeeping includes things like vacuuming, mopping, bathrooms, laundry, watering the plants, dusting of surfaces and knickknacks and other clutter.
