Supplemental Community Care
Your loved one’s senior living, assisted living, or group home community may provide them with many amenities and types of care, but sometimes care is more limited than they may need, temporarily or long-term. Touching Hearts at Home is able to come alongside the living community where your loved one resides, and provide additional care to ensure their every need is met.
How can supplemental community care help?
- Provide additional care their current living community may not provide
- Help with a range of transitional post-operative tasks
- Assist in the hospice care process
What Types of Supplemental Care Do We Provide?
You may find that you need additional care for your senior parent, or other loved one, but their current living community may not provide that level or type of care. Perhaps they are on a waitlist for assisted living but currently reside in an independent senior living community. You might be driving there regularly to check in on them or even taking time off of work and away from your own family to care for them. Maybe you have a parent or loved one suffering from Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia who frequently wanders at night or other specific times. Whatever might not be offered where your loved one is, or in the meantime between residences, we can help with any of the types of care we offer:
- Companion Care
- Personal Care
- Transitional Post-Operative Care
- Memory Care
- Transportation Services
You may be struggling to meet your loved one’s social needs, as well as keep up with their care and your own life, including work. Ease the stress of trying to juggle it all by enlisting the compassionate companion care of a Touching Hearts caregiver. They will serve your loved one with kindness by helping them to get regular exercise, remain engaged in hobbies, or even with medication reminders.
Particularly during transition times when moving a parent or other loved one to a more advanced care community, personal care can be a huge help! Then our staff is also able to help transition your loved one into their new living situation with ease. We can also work within assisted living communities to help take over the care that family members may be providing.
Transitional Post-Operative Care
Recovering from a surgery can be a huge challenge especially for many seniors. Some surgeries require additional care and assistance with daily tasks as an individual recovers, which their community may not be able to help with. Our caregivers can help with a range of tasks, at an independent living community or in assisted living.
If you have an elderly parent or loved one who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or another type of dementia, they may already live in a special community for those with memory illnesses. While these communities are experienced and trained to work with someone with these challenges, their staff are limited and serve many residents at a time. Touching Hearts staff can work in tandem with the staff at a memory care community to ensure your loved one receives the attention you desire.
Whether on a regular basis or to meet a one-time need, Touching Hearts at Home can assist with transportation needs for your loved one from their living community to wherever they may need to go. Don’t miss doctors appointments, haircuts, grocery trips, or family outings because you can’t find a ride for your loved one. We often partner with living communities to provide additional flexible transportation options apart from their standard scheduled shuttle or van trips.
When a loved one is entering the end of life stage it may be challenging to make the most of the days, weeks, or months they have left. While your loved one is in hospice care, we are able to come in and make where they live comfortable, calm, and well managed. We are able to take care of the items that a hospice care center may not be able to provide like cooking and meal preparation, light chores, bathing and dressing, and so much more.
Will the Current Community Allow Touching Hearts in?
Yes! In fact, even if they provide the type of care we do, you can still bring in one of our caregivers. We also partner with many communities throughout the south metro area to offer supplemental care alongside the care that they offer. So even if your loved one’s current living community doesn’t partner with us already, we love building new relationships and partnering with new communities! When you bring us in, it’s an opportunity for us to make a connection and offer compassionate supplemental care to other residents as well.
