Providing Caregiving Services for Seniors

Family members caring for a senior loved one at home can easily become overwhelmed, and it can be hard to know where to turn for help. At Senior HomeCare of Tucson, we partner with families to provide customized care solutions that enhance safety and overall quality of life, while empowering individuals to remain as independent as possible – providing family members peace of mind and a healthier life balance.

Transportation

For a variety of reasons, older adults often find themselves no longer able to drive. However, research shows that when seniors participate in mentally engaging activities like social outings, they live longer, happier lives with fewer health complications. Senior HomeCare of Tucson provides safe, accompanied transportation services wherever and whenever a senior wants to go: medical appointments and procedures, trips to museums, the library, beauty shop, theater, shopping, lunch dates, visits with family and friends – the options are endless.

And Senior HomeCare of Tucson offers so much more than a simple driving service. Our team of trained, compassionate caregivers will not just transport but also monitor seniors and provide them with the assistance they need to get from place to place. All of our drivers/caregivers are rigorously background checked and vetted according to federal standards and have clean driving records, for each senior’s safety and for family members’ peace of mind.

Recuperative Care and Safe Hospital Discharge

Transitioning home after a hospital stay or surgical procedure is a smoother, safer process with the help of a Senior HomeCare of Tucson caregiver. We can provide transportation, pick up prescriptions, stock the fridge and pantry with healthy food choices, and help the patient settle back in at home, reducing the risk of falls, making sure medications are taken exactly as prescribed, and reporting any problems or side effects to avoid a rehospitalization or other complication.

End of Life Care

When caring for someone in the last stage of life, often the last thing you want to do is shop for groceries, cook or clean. Chances are, at this point, you are truly fatigued as a caregiver. Working in conjunction with a senior’s hospice team, Senior HomeCare of Tucson’s skilled and compassionate caregivers provide much-needed respite care for family caregivers, ranging from just a few hours to 24/7 care.

With Senior HomeCare of Tucson, families can get back to enjoying quality time together while knowing they have a professional care team by their side to provide as much or as little support as needed. Contact us at 520-355-4787 for a free in-home consultation to learn more about how we can help improve quality of life for your senior loved one, right in the comfort of home.
