There truly is no place like home. Most people prefer to stay in their own homes as long as they possibly can. But concerns about health, safety, socialization or keeping up with household chores and appointments often make the decision to remain in one’s home a difficult one.
That’s where we come in. Kaiser Home Support Services provides in-home and community services that help each of our clients get the most out of life every day. And we perform those services at a consistently high level so you can be assured that your loved one is in good hands indeed.
Even though situations may be very similar, no two people are completely alike. That’s why our services are personalized for the needs of each client and his or her family. We always begin with an in-home assessment to help us understand the specific wants and needs of each client.
Working with the client and family, we use this to create a care plan. We use that plan to guide everything we do, and to give our staff members additional training and guidance in each client’s home to address his or her particular situation in the best possible manner.
The array of in-home services we offer are the result of decades of experience, and cover the broad range of needs and desires fore the clients we serve.
The state of your home can affect your state of mind and your physical health and wellness. But even the most meticulous housekeeper can reach a point in life where they simply aren’t able to maintain their home they way they used to. We’re here to help! Our care team professionals can lend a hand with light housekeeping chores like dusting, vacuuming, mopping, cleaning bathrooms and kitchen, washing dishes, removing trash, doing laundry, changing linens and so on. Our goal is to help you keep everything spotless — and share some smiles while we do!
Even if you’ve driven everywhere all your life, a time can come when vision, health or safety concerns can keep you from getting behind the world. No worries! We’re ready to get you wherever you need to go. We can provide transportation to doctor appointments, the pharmacy, the grocery store, shopping and other errands, as well social engagements, therapy or other services, your place of worship — wherever you need to be, we can get you there and back safely!
We are passionate about preserving the dignity and self-esteem of every client we serve. Nowhere is this more true than when we provide personal care. We offer gentle, respectful and professional assistance with everything from dressing and grooming to personal hygiene and medication administration. And because good nutrition is so vital to health at any age, we can work with our clients to plan and prepare healthy and tasty meals they’ll enjoy.
Staying as active as you can, as long as you can, is a key to staying healthy. We understand that each of our clients has physical limitations and physical capabilities. We can assist with a regular exercise program that acknowledges those limitations and makes the most of those capabilities, to keep each client as healthy and active as possible for as long as possible — always in a safe, closely supervised environment. And we can offer assistance with a client’s mobility needs if appropriate, too.
Whether providing care for a family member with developmental challenges or an elderly loved one, caregivers are often susceptible to stress and time management challenges as a result of balancing the needs of that individual with their own needs or those of other family members. Our respite care is designed to provide temporary relief for these caregivers, allowing them to tend to the needs of their children, spouses, and themselves.
Respite care can be anything from a few hours of care provided on a one-time basis to overnight or extended care sessions, and can take place on a regular schedule or only as needed. Most importantly our respite care providers have a passion for offering your loved one the same personal care and attention they would receive from you, so that you can have the opportunity to relax and bring some balance back to your life.
Participant Assistance and Care (PAC) Services allow those with developmental disabilities to remain and live successfully in their own homes, function and participate in their communities and avoid institutionalization. PAC services support and enable the participant in activities of daily living, self-care, and mobility with the hands-on assistance, prompting, reminders, supervision and monitoring needed to ensure the health, safety and welfare of the participant. Activities may include any task or tasks of direct benefit to the participant that would generally be performed independently by persons without developmental disabilities or by family members for or on behalf of persons with developmental disabilities.
