Help at Home after the Hospital 

So many things change after a hospitalization. Help your loved one get settled and adjusted to new medications, exercises, walking with crutches, etc.

Everlight Care can help fill the gap between hospital and home for either short- or long-term periods, depending on the family’s specific needs. There may be some initial anxiety about hiring someone to help care for a loved one after a stay in the hospital, but an extra, experienced set of hands can lessen the risk of a return visit.  Our non-medical personal care services can provide valuable support for the whole family.

  • Drive you or your loved one home from the hospital if requested
  • Pick up prescriptions
  • Reconcile old and new medications with you or your loved one’s physicians
  • Perform a home safety evaluation
  • Confirm all home nursing and therapy services and equipment
  • Schedule follow-up doctor appointments

All of our caregivers are trained to communicate in ways that can be easily understood and preserve the dignity of the person with memory loss. In addition to communication skills, our caregivers know how to:

  • Provide appropriate stimulation
  • Support abilities that your loved one still has
  • Create a soothing, dementia-friendly environment
  • Identify and avoid triggers for emotional outbursts
  • Employ redirection techniques to calm distressing reactions
  • Strategize to address sundowning
  • Protect against wandering

Wandering Prevention

People with dementia are prone to wandering away from their place of residence. The danger, of course, is that once a person with dementia has walked away, they may not be able to find their way back home. Interventions for wandering prevention include:

  • Training caregivers to keep a close eye on situations
  • Installing motion sensors, door sensors, and alarms
  • Administering an ID bracelet with contact information
  • Activating GPS on the phone to track whereabouts

Respite care in Fresno, CA

Respite Services Offered

One of the unique facets of respite care is that it provides care designed for the individual situation. This means that family members can choose when to use the service, how much service to use, and what type of care they need. For example, if a family is taking care of an elderly parent, but the family needs to go away for the weekend, respite care can step in and provide 24 care for the elderly parent. On the other hand, a family member may need to work different hours, and the elderly parent cannot be left alone each day during that time. Respite care can step in to fill in on a daily basis to cover that needed help.

The types of services provided depend on the circumstances of the situation. Elderly individuals may need constant care and supervision or may not need much care at all. Again, our respite workers can provide for just about any need.

Everlight Care respite services can include providing personal care such as help with dressing, feeding, bathing, toileting, and grooming. They can also provide services around the home such as preparing meals, cleaning up, washing clothing, and handling shopping.

An important part of respite care is providing one-on-one attention and care for the elderly person. This includes providing attention to their needs such as holding a conversation or playing a game for the individual. Most will also spend time walking with the individual and meeting their day to day mental needs.

Our Respite Service can help those who are suffering from dementia or other forms of mental health concerns. They can also provide a fill-in like service for those who are otherwise healthy.

 

Respite Care (Take a Break!) 

In need of a vacation? Time to replenish your own well? It’s not selfish to take breaks. It’s essential. You can hire our caregivers to come check in and help your relative while you get away for some well-deserved R & R. You rest easier knowing that your loved one is being well cared for. We’ve got your back!

What is Respite Care

Respite care provides relief for the caregiver. In many families, an elderly or disabled person is reliant on the care of his or her family. In some cases, this may be a minor amount of care – such as helping around the home. In other situations, the care is comprehensive involving all levels of personal management. Yet, family members get tired, too. They need a break. Sometimes they need help on a day to day basis. In other cases, they need someone who can provide care for a period of time while they travel or just take some time to themselves. Everlight Care is here to help.

Our respite caregivers have the unique ability to help reduce the stress and anxiety that a caregiver experiences. This may not be all of the time, but it provides an important break for the individual, helping to ensure he or she continues to maintain their mental health.  Respite care is flexible. It fits the needs of the individuals involved. That’s important because many family members simply do not know there is help available to them.

At Everlight Care, our respite service can include as much or as little care as required. It can be available at various times of the day and as frequently as desired. This type of flexibility helps caregivers to maintain the best level of care for their loved one without sacrificing their own mental health for it.

End of Life Care

When a family member is diagnosed with limited life expectancy, he or she often has a strong desire to spend the final days in the comfort of home. However, caring for a loved one at the end of life can be emotionally challenging and physically exhausting.

Everlight Care can support you and your loved one by working with a hospice agency or medical provider to fully meet the family’s care needs. We will help care for your loved one, as well as assist around the house and provide the family with emotional and moral support. The end of one’s life is an extremely difficult time, but Everlight Care’s services can lessen stress for everyone involved.

Veteran's Care

Veterans Aid Attendance Benefit

If you are currently receiving a VA pension, or are eligible to receive a VA pension, you may qualify to receive additional money each month. The Veterans Aid Attendance Benefit is an additional sum of money that some elderly veterans may qualify to receive. If you, or your elderly veteran family member, meet one of the qualifications below, then you may be eligible to receive this added benefit.

  • You need assistance with bathing, dressing, eating, or other daily activities
  • You are currently in a nursing home
  • You are unable to get out of bed
  • You have limited eyesight (5/200 acuity or lower for both eyes)

If you believe you or a family member may qualify for the Veterans Aid Attendance Benefit, you can check with the Pension Management Center for your state. You will want to be sure to have evidence that you qualify provided by your doctors or other medical providers in order to ensure that you receive the added benefits in a timely manner.

If you are unsure of whether you qualify for these benefits, we can help coordinate and navigate you through the process.

24-Hour Care

Our 24-hour care promise: 

  • 24-hour home care provides our clients with full-time, continuous care. Those living with dementia or who are homebound due to physical limitations benefit greatly from 24-hour care. Families enjoy peace of mind knowing caregivers are diligently monitoring safety, attending to daily needs and providing compassionate companionship.
  • Both the client and their family enjoy total peace of mind with reliable, 24/7 caregivers in their home to monitor safety, tend to their needs and be a friend and companion you can count on.
  • Enjoy fully hands-on care for your family – even at night.
  • At Everlight Care, we provide assurance to families who want their loved ones to have the best of care at all times. Self-care for family caregivers is important. A helping hand and a good night's sleep can enhance everyone’s life.

Why Choose 24-Hour Home Care?

If you’re looking for a comprehensive, cost effective alternative to any type of facility,  home care may be the choice for you. The emotional strain associated with moving away from the familiarity and comfort of home often leads to physical decline, further loss of independence and diminished quality of life.

24-hour care allows your loved one to remain in his or her home, while ensuring safety and promoting optimal well-being. In addition, our caregivers provide a much more personalized plan of care tailored to the status, conditions, preferences, hobbies and lifestyle of the individual.
