Our Care Managers conduct home visits with seniors to evaluate their needs and determine appropriate services. The goal is to help older adults live as independently as possible. We offer assistance with one of the following services: Personal Care Assistance, Homemaker Services, or Respite Care. To qualify for services, the older adult must be 60 years of age or older, reside in North Fulton and have a physical need that requires assistance.
Personal Care Assistance
Personal care assistance is provided by a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) to help with needs such as bathing, dressing, shaving, and grooming. The exact number of hours that are provided is based on our Care Management assessment. Typically, clients are provided Personal Care Assistance once a week.
Homemaker Services are provided to assist with those tasks that may be too physically difficult or risky to do anymore. Homemaker Services are typically provided by a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), and may include the following light housekeeping duties: vacuuming, sweeping, mopping floors, cleaning the bathroom, laundry, bagging and taking out trash, making the bed and/or changing the linens and assisting with organizing household routines. The exact number of hours provided is based on our Care Management assessment. Typically, clients are assisted with Homemaker Services once or twice a month.
Caring for a family member, spouse or friend can often be overwhelming for the caregiver. This leads to stress for both the older adult and the caregiver. Although Homemaker or Personal Care services provide assistance, there may be times when Respite Care is offered. Respite Care is a set schedule of time for the regular caregiver to tend to their needs, and a professional will come to stay with the older adult. The professional, typically a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) can provide companionship, help with leisure activities, simple meal preparation and assistance with getting around the home. The exact number of hours that are provided is based on the Care Management assessment.
