Types of Caregivers
Our wonderful staff possess a huge range of skills, and each caregiver excels at a variety of tasks. We match our caregivers to the level of care and exact needs you express during our complimentary consultation. We match personalities as well! At every level of care, we have experienced staff who enjoy working with the challenges of memory impaired clients. We exercise extraordinary consideration in choosing caregivers for these special seniors.

We Will Serve as a Patient Advocate in a Facility
Many hospitals and health care facilities are understaffed and the patient pays the price-especially an elderly patient who can be easily ignored. Our caregivers stand in for family as “Patient Advocates”. We politely contact nursing staff on behalf of our client when needs are not met in a timely manner. We minister comfort through offering hydration, lip balm, lotion, extra blankets and companionship with a promise to call family contacts if anything is amiss.
Night Owl Service
When you only need someone to watch over you at night for safety and comfort OR when a family member needs a respite from being a caregiver, we will supply the appropriately trained Compassionate Care staff. They will come in rested, ready to respond to needs like toileting, awakening for medications, repositioning, or just being a good conversationalist through stretches of insomnia. You can then rest peacefully knowing that you or your family member is being cared for.
